Stone walls do not a prison make, nor iron bars a cage. ~Richard Lovelace~
It is not the "things" of this world that imprison us, but our own perception of them. We can only be truly set free, when our perspective changes, to see beyond circumstance…beyond the veil of physical limitation…beyond the constraints that we impose upon ourselves in our own mind. Remove these shackles, and the world becomes a place of beauty and infinite possibility, without limitation. No one can remove those shackles for us. What are we waiting for?
Thought for the day
There is only one way to recover from this addiction. It is to commit to a rigorous program of reprogramming ourselves and become godly and spiritually focused people. Whether you are successful or not is strictly up to you. Are you the Little Train that Could or the Little Train that Won’t?
When they had struck them with many blows, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to guard them securely; and he, having received such a command, threw them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened. ~Acts 16:23-26 (NASB)~
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound. And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations. ~Isaiah 61:1,4 (Amp)~
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. ~John 8:32~
