“Our mind is the strongest prison. We allow ourselves to be a prisoner because of our negative mindset.”
Do you know that the strongest prison is not made out of concrete and steel? The strongest prison is all in your mind. There are so many different kinds of prisons that we allow ourselves to be trapped in. So many of us will let toxic and negative things control our mind. We are so busy worrying about what other people will think about us and will end up being their prisoner. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. You need to choose your words wisely. You will be able by changing your mindset. If you walk in God’s path toward your destination that he will help you to become free of your own prison. God can release you from your own cell block only by changing your mindset.
The first thing that you need to do is to set yourself free from being a prisoner is to change your mindset. You need to change the way of thinking. If you always have a negative mindset then you will not go far in life. You will make yourself and others in your circle miserable. You need to start to make an effort to change your mindset from being negative to positive. Think about positive things that will help you to live a better life. Nobody likes to be around people who are always being negative. Negative thoughts are both toxic and dangerous. In the 4th Chapter of Philippians, the 6thVerse had mentioned “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your quest be made known unto God.” There is power in prayer that will help you to change with your thoughts and heart. Don’t be hard on yourself. You don’t have to be trapped in the prison of negativity because God will be on your side.
The second thing is to surround yourself with people who are positive and will help to lift you up for empowerment. When you hang out with toxic people that their negativity will be contagious to you. You will end up being trapped in their negative activity if you allow yourself to continue to let them control you. You need to change your surroundings. If you hang out with negative people then you will become negative as well. Negative people are very toxic. They will suck out all of the energy out of you. They are energy drainers. You need to stop explaining yourself to them. The only person that you need to answer is our heavenly father God. God is always in control. You will really find out who is in your corner when you decide to make a change in your life. Some people in your surroundings including family members don’t want you to make changes in your life because they didn’t have the gut to make changes in their own lives. Even some won’t hesitate to bring your past up in your face as if it happened yesterday. This is a generational curse because they don’t want to change and don’t want you to change either. They want you to be miserable just like they are. They will blame others for their problems except taking responsibility for their own actions. The best thing that you can do is to avoid being associated with them because they will bring you down to their levels. . If you care about what other people think about you then you will always be their prisoner. Just set yourself free.My best advice to you is don’t allow any negative or toxic people to rent space in your mind. These tenants can cause your value to go down. You definitely need to raise the rent and sent them the eviction notice.
The most important thing that you definitely need to do is to change your vocabulary. Stop using negative words to describe yourself. Negative thoughts that people are experiencing in their own life is the lack of confidence. I had met individuals that will tell me that I can’t do this. They had already made up their mind that they can’t do it. They aren’t willing to try because they are scared of failure. You need to take every negative words out of your vocabulary list and replace them with positive words. Words have so much power when we use them. They can help you or they can destroy you. You can change that negative thought into ‘I Can Do This” or “Yes I Can.” You see how positive that statement is. All you have to do is take out “I Can’t” from your vocabulary and your mindset. Just remember that in the book of Philippians the 4th Chapter and the 13th verse that it had stated “I can do all things through Christ Jesus that strengthens me.” Another word that we need to get rid of is “Impossible.” All you have to do is to replace the word impossible with “I am Possible.” You see how powerful that statement is. Another example is that said that I am a runner who is about to run in a race and I am thinking that “I’m not going to win this race.” I need to change my ways of thinking into “I choose to be a winner!” By doing this you are building up your confidence and help steer your mind from a negative mindset into a positive mindset. You are heading in the right direction. With God help he will direct your steps in the right direction. You can have all the pity party that you want but nobody isn’t going to attend. You need to move forward by changing your mindset and your attitude. By the power of your words that your tongue will becomes a pen that writes the book of your destiny. So you need to speak the words of life and success.
Just remember that if you want to be free from your own prison you must be willing to change your mindset. If you want that door open then you must be willing to walk in the direction of God’s Path. God will open that prison door by helping you to change your way of thinking. When you are walking in His path that you will be able to look at life in a positive way. You will have more confidence in yourself. You will not be a prisoner of any situations that you are in. You will discover your freedom because you are willing to make a change by following the direction of God. He will set you free from captivity. In the 3rd Chapter of Galatians and the 22nd verse had mentioned “But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.” So you can claim your freedom by calling on his name. He will set you free from your own prison.
