BANDS OF IRON
A MEDITATION BY BLAMINACK
Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; 
Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: 
Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help. 
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. 
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder. 
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! 
For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder. 
(Psa 107:10-16)

Sin brings bondage. It brings darkness. It brings death. Along with sin comes bondage. It is a yolk. When we choose pleasure and sin over Godís commands we invite pain, and trouble. When you choose sin you choose slavery! No man can serve two masters! Sin will be your master. The labor that sin requires is very heavy. You will work harder to enjoy your sin than you will ever work to put food on the table. When you want to quit it demands more and more. Just like the Hebrews laboring to make bricks, sin will make you into a slave. It will drive you way past the place that you would quit.

Joh 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Evil deeds are darkness. This is a trap. The more that we sin the more we cannot see through the darkness. Nothing looks right.  Your mind will be filled with darkness. A blindness will cover your eyes. Your mind will be filled with anger, lust, contempt, envy. Sin is a slave driver that brings darkness!

But God is so full of mercy! He doesnít want us to chose a path that will lead us away from Him.  He wants us all to turn to Him so that we can enjoy liberty and freedom. He doesnít want us to serve our flesh and Satan because He knows that death will follow. So God in His love and graciousness makes that path hard. Choosing sin is the hard road.  He fills that path with thorns. He wants us to turn back. Why? So that He can bless us!

Only when we come to the end of our selves can we find freedom. What is that freedom? It is the power to do good works. It is the power to have self-control. It is the power to live according to Godís plan. This path God will bless. God orders this path. There are boundaries that keep us on the road.  There are hedges that keep us. It is kind of like the little bumps on the side of a highway that let a sleepy driver know that they have slipped of to sleep. The path is straight. This is real freedom. It is the ability to do as God directs. It is totally contrary to the bondage of sin.

What brings that freedom? It is when we begin to hate the condition that we are in! It is when we can no longer stand the mess that our life is in. First we have to acknowledge where we have gotten to. Until we come to the place when we can say, I am totally bound by my sin we can find no deliverance. There is no self help program that brings freedom! It is only Christ. So when does He come? When we have acknowledged our state and begin to cry out to Him. When you say that there is no one else that can save me. When you have become fed up with the slavery.

Then God will hear you. Then He will rush in and save you. When you are in the distress. When you acknowledge that you are lost. He will seek you out and find you and deliver you.  He will break off the bands of iron! He will flood you in His light.

Joh 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Then is Godís goodness shown and manifested. That light comes in and chases away all darkness. You are no longer in the shadow of death! Freedom comes! He breaks off the bands of iron, and He will break down the Gates that have kept you in captivity. This is salvation. Are you tired of bondage? Are you hungry enough to be honest about where you are? Have you come to the place that you have run out of options? Have all of your plan Bs Cs and Ds fallen through? Finally God has gotten you to the place that He can show Himself to you. Just cry out to Him and keep crying out to Him until deliverance comes. Weeping is just for a night, there is joy in the morning!

Joh 12:46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness

1Jo 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Eph 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Rom 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
