THE PRISON WITHIN



There is a prison that has inmate population of about nine hundred and ninety-nine million. It’s a prison with no walls, with no hurtful wire, with no physical barrier, not even a warden but it is the most effective prison in the world today. Few break out, but those who do, find real and lasting freedom.


The prison is nowhere in the world but everywhere in the world. That prison is in our minds. It is a prison that holds back our initiatives, our talent, our ability to express ourselves and most of all, it holds back the fulfillment of our full potential as human beings.
 

That prison is fear. Our lives today are controlled by fear more than we know. Fear controls the choices we make, our actions, our habits and even our destinies. Fear has become one of the greatest threats to humanity in this day in its many forms.


Recent events in the world have shown how fear can drive even those that claim to be powerful to behave desperately and inhumanely but the effect of fear on our personal lives is more damaging than we can ever imagine. The simple truth is “fear can prevent you from progressing in life but am here to inform you that you should not fear anything in this world and never allow any man or woman or even a thing to intimidate you.


You are your own master but a servant of God and Him only should you fear. The fear of God should not be a fear of terror but of reverence. “For He (God) has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)” Please my dear and wonderful friend FEED YOUR FAITH AND YOUR FEARS WILL STARVE TO DEATH.
