The life you have today is a direct result of your belief systems and your perspective. You are looking at life through the spectacles of your mindset and creating a reality for yourself that you might not even be aware of.
Many of us were raised in a way that made us conscious of limitations, so now we have thought patterns, mindsets and belief systems that are impeding our progress. The environment you were raised has conditioned you to see things in a certain way and this conditioning might be affecting your results.
Yes, there are evil powers in the world, but sometimes you behave in ways that help their activities in your life. Some of your habits are giving demons the permission to build strongholds in your life. This is why the Bible says you must renew your mind, so that you can avoid following the same old patterns and producing the same old results.
If you want to make progress and become a new person, you must evaluate your old beliefs and weigh them side by side with God’s word. If God’s word outweighs the belief, then it is negative and should be tossed aside.
You can’t go to the past to change the way your parents raised you, but you can re-raise yourself and build a new life on the strong foundation of God’s word.
