Take The Limits Off
Generally speaking, limits are necessary. For example, speed limits and age limits are good things to have in place. Limits reduce risk because risk signifies there’s a chance for failure or loss. Limits place boundaries, caps, restrictions, and parameters which can serve as guardrails that protect you from straying outside of the will of God.
I place limits on my children all the time:
“Don’t play in the street.”
“You can only have one cookie.”
“Don’t touch the stove.”
“Stop eating that out of the trash.”
Parents, you know what I mean.
While limits can be a good thing, it is unwise to place limits on God. You serve an unlimited God. Your God is unrestricted, unconfined, boundless, infinite and vast. You serve a big God who has endless possibilities. Don’t limit God to time, manner or means. He doesn't care about your age, your background, or your education or lack thereof. He can get to you anything, from anyone, anywhere, at anytime.
Unfortunately, if you’re like me, you may unconsciously measure God by your own limitations.
You look at how limited you are and you unintentionally think God is the same way. Your only limitation is found in your own thinking.
You are your only limit.
Stop saying, “I can’t afford this or I’m on a fixed income.”
Stop being overwhelmed by the bigness of your problem and start considering the bigness of your God.
Stop forgetting what He has done for you in the past and start remembering His former exploits.
Stop worrying and start believing that He is willing to perform for you.
It’s time for you to tear down the fences of limitations in your life and believe that your God will enlarge your boarders.
Take the limits off.
Over the last few weeks I’ve been declaring this verse out loud to stir up the faith of God that's already deposited on the inside of me. I encourage you to do the same.
