I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] (Philippians 4:13, AMP)
One of the things we should do throughout the year is to step beyond our boundaries or limitations. We are made up of Body, Soul, and Spirit. And when God created us, He deposited in us everything we would ever need to achieve, create, or make whatever we set our mind on to do on earth.
Our Spirit interacts with God, Who through the Holy Spirit guides us on what to do, how to do, and when to do. He created us with limitless possibilities so that we can design and bring into reality whatever we can imagine. That is God created us to function like Him.
However, the Body interacts with the outside world which has been polluted (with lies and deceptions) by Satan and his demons. The enemy tries to use our physical situation(s) to create a blockade to prevent us from achieving what we desire in life. It’s like keeping a cat or dog in a box and making it believe that it can’t jump out.
Some of us, unfortunately, have allowed the enemy to keep them in a box for so long; He has created a boundary and programmed them to believe that they couldn’t step beyond the boundaries. He uses fear, among other things, to keep them from reaching their full potentials.
Merriam Webster dictionary defines limitation as “Something (such as a lack of ability or strength) that controls what a person is able to do”.
What is your boundary?
What limits have you set for yourself, or what have you made yourself believe that you can’t do?
It could be the book you want to write, or a trip you want to embark on, or some career development(s) you want do, or a new venture you want to explore, or a business idea you want to start, or a project or contract you want to tender for.
What is/are limiting you from moving forward?
As you ponder on the above question and make note/list, I will share with you (in subsequent posts) stories about people who had every reason to give up but chose to reach or move beyond the barriers that were before them. I believe their stories will stir you up, in order for you to take bold steps of faith to achieve what God has deposited in your spirit this year and beyond.
