The Truth Shall Make You Free
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
Have you ever been to a circus and seen an elephant chained to a stake in the ground? Why doesn’t he break free? Because as a young elephant he was tied to a tree. And try as he might, he couldn’t break free. Now, he is ingrained with the thought 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 real truth is what God says, not what we think.
Are there any strongholds in your life that keep you chained to the past? Write down these verses and memorize them.
2 Corinthians 10:4
“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)”
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”
Now break free from the lies of the past as you tell yourself the truth!
