Limitless has been one of my favorite TV series for a simple reason; NZT-48. This was the miracle pill that enabled Brian Finch to do stuff he couldn’t do on his own. He moved from being below average to extraordinary character who help solved complex cases for the FBI. I was super excited watching because the pill reminded me of the Holy Spirit effect on average folks…like me.
…you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you…(Acts 1:8, AMP)
In the Old Testament, we saw our heroes doing might works when the Spirit of the Lord came upon them. Then came our Jesus Christ who could only begin his ministry after receiving the Holy Spirit power. And before he left, he told his disciples “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about” (Acts 1:4).
Why were they to wait?
A clearer picture was given in Luke 24:49. Here Jesus said “Listen carefully: I am sending the Promise of My Father [the Holy Spirit] upon you; but you are to remain in the city [of Jerusalem] until you are clothed (fully equipped) with power from on high.” (AMP). They were to wait till they are fully equipped with power from on high. Jesus knew that without the Power of the Holy Spirit, they were no different from unbelievers.
Here is why I was super excited watching Limitless: It reminded me that with the Powerful force of the universe living inside of me, I have Limitless Capabilities.
In the same way, you were fully equipped with power from on high when the Holy Spirit came upon you. Like Brain, if you can get back on your goals, targets, objectives, vision, etc there is absolutely nothing you can’t do regardless of the situation or environment you find yourself. You have Limitless Capabilities.
