Embracing hope, not despair

President Steve Holder

I am concerned about the enemy’s use of oppression on those who are in ministry leadership. Some are battling financial oppression, others mental and physical, and some even religious oppression.

When oppression sneaks in, the enemy can use it to deceive you into thinking that it is normal – that being under the weight of discouragement and despair is your new normal state of being.

This is a lie of the enemy!
The reality is that oppression it is NOT from God.
“He that the Son has set free is free indeed!”

God has called His leaders to minister in freedom, NOT oppression. He has called us to bring a message of hope, not despair. As God’s child, you have authority over the deception of oppression. Use your authority in the name of Jesus to ask God to set the captive free! He wants us to be free so that we can minister freedom to others.

If you are battling oppression, I am crying out to God to loose what is binding you and to release you into effective and anointed ministry.

I pray that whatever is weighing you down is now lifted!

I pray your freedom in the Spirit brings a breath of fresh air and a restoration of hope and enthusiasm that advances His Kingdom and brings deliverance from oppression in your life and the lives of others.

I declare you FREE to fulfill the vision that God has birthed in you for His glory!

Free Indeed,
Steve Holder
