When you feel hopeless, you feel the chains of the Devil. You feel like things are out of your control and being done to you. You are tied down and unable to move forward
If you look at the devil’s captives you will see that their chains are loose around their neck making us question if they are really there against their will. Are you really being held back against your will? What part did you play in creating these chains?
Maybe you have been so focused on making a certain dollar amount because you think that will make you feel successful that you have neglected your personal life. Maybe you continue to get sucked down by a client because you are afraid to fire them. Maybe you feel it’s easier to be unhappy in your current situation than risk making a change for the unknown.
The Devil is here to make you face yourself and break the chains that bind you.
