As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from their bonds, but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller, we use the same size rope to tie them and at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds, but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Wow! Do you know that you have the Freedom in Jesus Christ to not be held back. Not by anything, nothing at all can stop you. There is Victory in Jesus and you don't have to fight for Victory, you just have to live in Victory. Ask Jesus today to show what rope from your past is holding you in place, claim your victory over it and move forward.
