No Stagnation

Scripture Reading: Acts 12: 1-19


“And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.” (Acts 12: 6)

Our Focal Scripture reveals that Peter was bound with two chains, between two soldiers. In bible times, prisoners were often chained to soldiers. The whole idea was to stop the prisoner from moving. So Peter was tied down in a system that was not moving. He was put in a position where he would be unable to make progress. Even if he wanted to move, because the soldiers were not interested in moving, he remained at the same place.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not be tied to systems that are not moving. You will not operate under superiors that are not interested in your movement. You will not be tied down when you should be moving forward. You will not be restricted in destiny. You will not be halted when others are free to move. You will not be caged by the wickedness of any Herod. You will not be locked into any negativity and locked out of favour.

Today, I decree, you are breaking out of every limitation the enemy placed on you. I decree that your spirit man is free to leap higher than ever before. I decree that your feet shall be like hind’s feet, and you will run faster than you have ever run. I decree that the matters of your life will not be tied down. I decree that you will not be stuck by any policy that is not in your favour. I decree that your movement is reenacted.

Notice that Peter’s feet were not lame; so he had the capacity to move, but he was tied in the midst of soldiers whose job was to ensure that he didn’t move. So Peter was tied against his own wishes. Your days of being tied in places against your wishes, are over. Your days of remaining in systems that won’t let you rise, are over. The days of your stagnation are over. The days of your confinement are over. You have broken out of the chains.

No longer will you dwell in any destiny prison. No longer shall the enemy confine you against your wishes.


I reject every destiny prison; I will not be tied to systems that are not moving, in Jesus’ name!
