Break every chain..

I've recently discovered a song by Jesus Culture called "Break Every Chain."

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven's gates swing wide

There is NOTHING that is too big or too bad for Jesus.  It doesn't matter if it's addiction, be it to drugs, alcohol, pornography, sex, or anything else.  It doesn't matter what we do, God can still reach us. 

I believe that God's grace is much greater than we tend to think it is. The devil will try to tell us that our addiction is too strong for God to break. He will tell us that we aren't worth God's time. He will tell us that we will never amount to anything. He will tell us that we will never be able to live up to what is expected of us, should we give our lives to Christ. He will tell us that we will fail.

Well, you know what? The devil is a liar.

You are worth His time. You are good enough. You can do it. You were meant to do great things.

There is nothing that we could ever do that would make God love us any less. We are the apple of His eye. 

Think of the love between a mother and a child. Or between a husband and a wife. That love that is so deep doesn't even compare to the love that God has for us. Words could never describe it.

Our culture tells us every day that certain things are okay, and, to be frank, they are not. I saw a quote the other day that said, "When you have to compromise yourself or your morals for the people around you, it's probably time to change the people you're around." I completely believe that.. BUT regardless of the lifestyle you live or the people you hang around (or what you do with those people), while I choose to live my life for Christ, it doesn't mean that God loves me any more than He loves you. You are just as special and just as important to Him as I am. It doesn't matter if you are addicted to drugs or if you're a gossiper or if you can't get a hold on that pornography addiction or if you're a compulsive liar or if you are having an affair.. It doesn't matter if you're a thief or if you're a bully. God still loves you just as much as he loves those who live for Him. He still desires to reach out and touch your heart and transform you. 

There is power in the name of Jesus, and he desires to break the chains in your life. He desires to show you all that He has planned for you. He desires for you to reach your FULL potential in Him. It doesn't matter what you've done. It doesn't matter how bad it may seem or how ashamed you may feel. Nothing is too big. 

I don't know why God wanted me to share this, but I know what He has a reason. He loves you and wants you to know that.


  1. Hi! This is going to sound a little crazy but please bare with me.
    My name is Bethany, and one of the key points that occurred in my relationship with the Lord, from having the knowledge in my head to having Him in my heart was a sermon by Damon Thompson. The one you spoke of in your testimony. My copy of that sermon, which now I can't even recall the name has been long since lost. Since then, I've searched for it from time to time and I can't find it anywhere. It means so much to, so much, that I actually found your page because this is my third hour tonight searching for this thing. If you could tell me the name, just the name of the teaching, you would greatly be blessing my life. Even an idea. I've messaged the website for months with no response, lol... Please and thank you.
    With love,


    1. Hi Bethany! Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of it either. I have searched and searched online for it, but I have never been able to find a copy. The closest thing I have been able to find is a blog post by someone who sat in the same service that I was at in 2007.. Here is the link:

    2. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help! If you find it, please let me know!!
