Good afternoon! Happy Tuesday. I pray that everyone had a blessed and safe Memorial holiday weekend. I had a blessed weekend and I truly enjoyed all that God allowed me to encounter.
TFTD: Don’t Limit God
Genesis 17:1 (New King James Version)
1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.
Philippians 4:13 (New King James Version)
13 I can do all things through Christ[a] who strengthens me.
I must admit there have been times in my spiritual walk that I have limited God. Yes, me. I didn’t always do this intentionally, but subconsciously I would begin packing God and all of His mite into a box. I would limit Him and not even realize that I was limiting Him.
I would go to God with a prayer request and step out on faith that He would see it through. Now when things in the natural didn’t work out according to plan, I would assume they weren’t going to work at all and accept that things will be changed or not work out as I had thought. But how many people know that God is able to do exceedingly and above all things that we ever hope for or ask for?
The first way I limit God is by thinking that in order for a blessing to manifest that He had to operate the way I think things should be done. I sometimes forget that my thinking is limited and His is not. I then forget how powerful God really is. The scripture says, He is ALMIGHTY GOD. There are no limits on what God can and will do in your life. Then I sometimes forget that since God is so great and His Son lives inside of me that gives me the ability to do ALL things.
How many people are guilty of limiting God? We’ll don’t fret, God is not finished with you yet. Remind yourself daily of who God is. When you spend time studying God’s word, you can be confident that God is able to do all things. Acknowledge that you don’t have everything under control and that God is always in control. Stop limiting God to what you can see in the natural and trust that He can move mountains in the supernatural. Step out on faith and know that God is able to blow your mind.
I know it looks like you won’t get that job or get accepted to that school, but I dare you to stop limiting God. I know it looks like you don’t qualify for the car or new home, but I double dog dare you to stop limiting God. I know it looks like your money is gone before the month has ended, but I triple dog dare you to stop limiting God. When you take God out the box, He will expand your faith and take you to new heights.
Stop limiting God and watch Him do a new thing in your life.
