Reference: Philippians 1:12‭-‬14 MSG

I want to report to you, friends, that my imprisonment here has had the opposite of its intended effect. Instead of being squelched, the Message has actually prospered. All the soldiers here, and everyone else, too, found out that I’m in jail because of this Messiah. That piqued their curiosity, and now they’ve learned all about him. Not only that, but most of the followers of Jesus here have become far more sure of themselves in the faith than ever, speaking out fearlessly about God, about the Messiah.

My Thoughts:

I must learn to use the thing that is trying to hold me in bondage for my advantage. If I focus on succeeding despite the prison, I will achieve it at an even greater level which is the best witness to others that they can succeed in spite of their personal bondage.
