“The kingdom of God is not about talk, but of power” 1 Corinthians 4:20
Have you ever wondered how they stake down a 10 ton elephant with the same size chain that is used for a 300 pound baby elephant? When they are little they tug at the stake nonstop before they realize they can’t get free. At that point their elephant memory takes over and they remember for the rest of their lives that they can’t get away from the stake. Sometimes we are like the elephant allowing someone’s negative comment or a failure from the past to get staked into our minds, and as we go forward in life we are still held back by an inaccurate stake from past memories when in actuality a new day, a new you, a new faith is available! As Christians everyday could be ad should be an advancement. Instead of believing you are attached to a sin or broken situation or a circumstance that will never be healed—the power that raised Jesus from the dead is in you! God’s power has no limits. Over and over it states in scripture that nothing is impossible with God.
