"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
free." (John 8:32 NKJV)
Have you ever been to a circus and seen an elephant chained to a stake in the ground? Why doesn’t he break free? Perhaps, as a young elephant he was tied to a tree. And as much as tried, he couldn’t break free. Now the thought is ingrained that he cannot break free. How true that is of you and me who have ingrained thought patterns in our lives. We say, “I am chained to this habit and I can’t break free.” Or we say, “I’m not good enough.” All kinds of lies keep us in bondage. But truth is what God says, not what we think.
Are there any strongholds in your life that keep you chained to the past? Write 2 Corinthians 10:4 and Galatians 5:1 down and memorize them. Break free from the lies of the past and tell yourself the truth!
