What has controlled you?


What comes to mind when you think of a bull? An image of a strong animal. It weighs on average 1 ton, measures about 5 ft. in height, and can run around 35 mph, but can be easily controlled by a simple nose ring, which is used to force the animal to obey its owner.

Even with the strength to crush a car or kill a person with a mere blow, it is tamed by man from its very first months of life.

However, if this animal knew his strength and the impact he could cause, would he allow himself to be neutralized by such a small object, which weighs only a few grams?

Unfortunately, the same happens when a person allows doubts into his mind. He becomes like this bull, which, though very strong and brave, is neutralized by something so small.

A small thought of doubt causes spiritual slavery, and there is only one thing that can bring true freedom: faith! Just like a small doubt can cause great damage, a little faith can bring great victories.

The Lord Jesus said:

…If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17.20

Therefore, get rid of those rings of doubt! Cast out all fears and evil thoughts, stand up and use your faith.

Believe in yourself and in God, and use the strength that exists in you!
