Psalm 142:7
"Bring my soul out of prison, So that I may give thanks to Your name; The righteous will surround me, For You will deal bountifully with me."

The word "prison" is used symbolically, as a metaphor for trouble and distress (comp. Psalm 88:8; Psalm 107:10-14). Pulpit Commentary

Ps 88:8 sometimes we are shut up and can't go out.
What frees us up so we can express our gratitude to God?

2 Corinthians 3:17
“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

If we let it, if we yield to it's teachings, if we soften our heart and accept what it says, the teachings of the Bible with the Holy Spirit will give us freedom.

Psalm 124:7,8
“Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper; The snare is broken and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.”

Turn to the Lord, turn to His word, you will find freedom.

We were meant to live serving God. Eph 2:10 It is as we live for Christ there is freedom. To reject the leading of God because of fear of the unknown brings us into bondage. We miss out on what God has for us because of our lack of belief.

Trust in God, He will work with you.

Some turn from following God, because they think the pleasures of sin are better than living for Christ.  Yes there is pleasure in sin for a season. Heb 11:25; Phil 3:18,19 But the end of a life in sin is destruction. Not only in this age but in the one to come.

To see other people walking with Christ brings joy to your life. 3 John 4 “I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in the truth.”
