Take the limits off!
It is time! It is time! It is time! ➖It is time that we take the “limits” off God and allow Him to do the supernatural, extra-ordinary things that He wants to do in and through our lives!
It is also time – that we take the “limits” off our abilities and possibilities! NOW we must see that those things that have been intended to “stop us” are actually the very things that have strengthened us and prepared us to be those who Take Territory for the Kingdom of God!
Don’t LIMIT God! Don’t be LIMITED to what you have done! Don’t be limited to what you “think” you can do!
Recognize that God never asks you to do something that “you have the ability to do!” He will ask you to do the Impossible – so that He can show Himself mighty through you – and do what YOU CANNOT DO!
“I don’t think there’s any comparison between the present hard times and the coming good times. The created world itself can hardly wait for what’s coming next. Everything in creation is being more or less held back. God reins it in until both creation and all the creatures are ready and can be released at the same moment into the glorioustimes ahead. “… Meanwhile, the joyful anticipation deepens.” (Romans 8:18-21)
(1) GOD WILL ALLOW YOU TO BE PUSHED PAST YOUR LIMITATIONS!
“Now, friends, I want to report on the surprising and generous ways in which God is working in you … Fierce troubles came down on the people, pushing them to the very limit. The trials exposed their true colors: They were incredibly happy, (though desperately poor). The pressure triggered something totally unexpected: an outpouring of pure and generous gifts. I was there and saw it for myself. They gave offerings of whatever they could—far more than they could afford!” (2 Corinthians.8:1-4 -MSG)
(Phillips Translation says) – “Now, my brothers, we must tell you about the grace that God had given to you. Somehow, in most difficult circumstances, your joy and the fact of being down to your last penny – produced a magnificent concern for other people. I can guarantee that you were willing to give to the limit of your means, yes and beyond your means, without the slightest urging from me or anyone else. In fact you simply begged us to accept your gifts and so you get to share in the honors of supporting your brothers in Christ.” (2 Corinthians.8:1-4 Phillips)
(2) GOD IS SHOWING HIMSELF MIGHTY - IN OUR “LIMITATIONS!”
“Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.
“Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.” (2Corinthians.13:5-9)
“Bless our God, O peoples! Give Him a thunderous welcome!
Didn’t He set us on the road to life? Didn’t He keep us out of the ditch?
He trained us first, passed us like silver through refining fires,
Brought us into hardscrabble country, pushed us to OUR VERY LIMIT!
Road-tested us inside and out, took us to hell and back; Finally He has brought us to this well-watered place.“ (Psalm.66:8-12)
