Making Crooked Places Straight

Scripture: Isaiah 45 v 2:

"I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron."

- Without Jesus going before us these barriers are impossible to clear out of your way. He sees beforehand the obstacles in our path and asks us to walk in His footsteps to avoid landmines.

- In this world we can be deceived by those who lurk in crooked places to trip us and catch us in their schemes. Jesus can make a straight path of honesty and truth to teach sinners to know there is a better way.

- The gates of brass that block us spiritually from growing in grace through faith, Jesus will break them into pieces when we pray to get past them. We may have ignorantly backed ourselves into these problems. So ask that every blockage we have erected be shattered.

- The bars of iron speak of imprisonment, captivity and bondage. When we are freed from sin we have leverage to pray for Jesus to burst these bars asunder. He will reveal the hidden layers of ancestral curses and set us free.

- He is the mighty conqueror of this world and the Creator of every being. Nothing is too hard for Him to do. He reveals to those who pray the things that need shattering and removing and raises up those who have struggled and fills them with joy.

Prayer: Lord Jesus help me to be free of crooked places; brass gates and iron bars that block me from the full power of Your Spirit being manifested in me. Fill me with love peace and joy today. Amen.
