Your Chains Are Gone

You will never be a visionary if you cannot see your future. I had a Lab when we were pastored before, and I kept her on a chain. In a few days she had worn the ground to dirt all the way to the end of her chain. She would take off and stop at the dirt just before the grass.

One day I had taken her chain off and she took off running, but she stopped at the place where she knew she could go no further. She had forgotten that the chain had been removed and thought that she could go no further.

There are some here today that God has set free. He has removed your shackles and chains and set you free, yet you keep going to the place where you are reminded of your chains and stopping.
