John 12:37-50 (37) – Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. (NIV)
In a zoo, a tiny rope held a herd of elephants. There were no chains or cages, and it was evident that these creatures could escape, but they didn’t! So, a man asked the trainer why the animals are not attempting to break away. The trainer replied: ‘Well, when they were calves (babies), we used the same rope to tie them and as they grew older, they are conditioned to think that the rope can still hold them, so they never try to run.’
Beloved, isn’t it incredible that these elephants have the power to break free yet because they believed they could not, they are stuck? Similarly, many times have we read the Scriptures and prayed so that God had set us free (John 8:36). But, because our minds are wired with unbelief such as the people in our Bible reading, we fail to activate God’s finished work! (Hebrews 11:6).
The mind plays an important part in our lives because it births our actions (Proverbs 23:7A). Therefore, free yourself from discouragement and the lies of the devil. Focus on the Word and what Christ has done (Matthew 28:18). Change your mindset— emancipate yourself from mental, emotional, spiritual and physical captivity through the Holy Spirit. Let Him direct your path, and you shall prevail. Believe it and pray continually! (Mark 9:23).
Hymn: Jesus Saves — Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
1. Father, help me to walk in the supernatural and soar over the storm.
1. Lord, please honour Your name and Word in my life, family and the church.
2. I refuse to be stranded in the journey of destiny!
3. Every satanic umbrella and covering over my life; catch fire!
‘Our greatest enemy, after Satan, is the ‘negative belief system’ we have formed over time.’— Kehinde Abolarin.
