Bought with Ransom

I saw this picture on facebook today from Proverbs 31 Ministries


I have seen this verse before but I have never actually thought about it. You know you can read something over and over until you finally get what God's been trying to tell you for a long long time...

We were bought with ransom...as I think about all those kidnappings and rescues that have been happning A LOT latley...much more in the news than usual I can't help but think about how relieved those victims were when the cops held out their arms to those women...it had to have been almost like a movie or a 'fairy tale happy ending' for lack of a better analogy.

I had a vision after I read this...we were held captive...prisoners, our souls, our hearts our minds were locked in a room until someone found us...but it wasn't a police officer or a good samaritan it was the only One who had the power to rescue us, the only one who saw us locked in that room and said enough is enough!

I saw God lift His hands out to me and say come on MANDY we're getting  you out of here. You've been locked up far too long, follow me toward freedom.

We weren't bought with ransom money or fancy property or new cars or diamonds...all of that stuff wastes away or gets spent...we were bought with life. Jesus laid His very LIFE down for us...He was the Ransom. He said, it's finished, you're free. Live life, be joyful praise Me because you're Mine and you will always be Mine...

You, were bought with ransom...Jesus laid His life down for you...He's holding His arms out to you and saying "come on, enough is enough YOU are MINE!"
