Jesus read Isaiah 61:1 in the temple and said he was fulfilling this prophecy.
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;” Isaiah 61:1
If you stay bound by your past, it is your fault. When you take Jesus as your Savior, he unlocks the chains and releases you from your captor. It’s a heavyweight and a burden to continue to carry your brokenness. It’s especially sorrowful for a Christ-follower to continue to dwell on their painful past without considering the salve of Jesus’s sacrifice. Instead of feeling heartbroken when you think about your past, you should look at it as a stepping stone in life that got you to where you are now. Get over it and move on in freedom. If you continue to feel sorry for yourself, you take his gift for granted. When you make up your mind to live free, it opens up the door to endless joy. It’s up to you to retrain your brain to look at situations in the light of salvation. Jesus set you free, so be free!
