Ever wondered why a big, powerful elephant in the zoo doesn’t break down the fence and go free? From infancy, its trainer uses progressively smaller metal chains around its neck or legs to condition it to be helpless. Long after these are removed, the elephant still believes it is chained. Its METAL chains are now replaced by its MENTAL chains. How often we act like the elephant in the zoo! We easily give up trying. Past failures & present inadequacies convince us we’re incapable. We doubt our God-given potential, waste opportunities, and fail to see setbacks as stepping-stones. Our mental chains need to be broken. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Are you paralyzed by your mindset? Unchain the elephant. You!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
