As a child, many of us have been to the Ringling Brothers circus at Madison Square Garden or the Nassau Colosseum. If you look at the elephants, you will see that while huge, they are tied to a little tiny stake that has been hammered into the ground. Did you know that if they wanted to, they could rip the stick out and free themselves to roam? But they will never do it. Because when they were a baby, they were “lied” to. The trainer led them to believe that as long as there was a stake in the ground with a chain, they were helpless, hopeless, and bound. They drummed this into the elephant’s orientation so regularly – hitting the little elephants’ leg when they tried to move it!!! Those elephants will die never having known that they had the power to move the stake.The people who know their God will do great exploits. Click To Tweet
Catch this!!! This is satans’ agenda; many Christians will die never having known what they could have been if they knew the power of the revelation of their righteousness in Christ. The little stake that is holding you down can be ripped up when you use your God-given power. You have the authority to rip up the influence of the person that is holding you back. Same for the circumstance that is controlling you!!! Daniel 11:32 tells us that the people who know their God will do great exploits! When was the last time you did an exploit on behalf of the kingdom? The goal of the enemy is to get you to believe that because you are facing a tough situation means that this is the totality of your life.
Help us continue helping others!
