Remove the Limits
God wants us to take limits off and believe Him for the impossible in our lives. We do have a promise of a rich and glorious inheritance from the Lord. It is obvious that people can limit what God desires to do for us. Psalms 78:40-42 “How often they provoked Him in the wilderness, and grieved Him in the desert! Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember His power: the day when He redeemed them from the enemy.”
We certainly do not want to repeat what the children of Israel did while in the wilderness and forget the power of God. He had delivered them from the hands of an oppressor and yet their history of slavery had so formed their thinking they were having a difficult time embracing their new freedom.
We need more men and women of God that have the mentality of Joshua and Caleb. No matter what the enemy appears like, we are well able to conquer every adversary and overcome any hurdles that face us. Matthew 19:26 “ ...But all things are possible with God”. Jesus also said in Matthew 17:20“...and nothing shall be impossible to you”.
In the church world we talk a lot about breaking strongholds in life. These are barriers that have become powerful enough to stop us in our tracks. Most barriers or strongholds are manmade. They are invisible walls that we have built in our minds through negative thoughts that limit and stop us from taking the steps that will bring success and great accomplishments.
The first thing people want to do is blame someone else or even the devil for those strongholds. Even when someone else is involved it is not really their fault. We choose how we respond, and the Bible says concerning the devil to resist him and he will flee. Strongholds are mostly built up and given strength in our lives by our own fears, misunderstandings, and mindsets that are contrary to the Word of God.
Step one to taking off those limits (strongholds or barriers) :
Change how we view life and situations
Attitude is very important to removing limitations. Attitude is the way a person thinks, your mental disposition. They are formed based on how we interpret life through the five senses. Much of our life is determined by our good attitudes or bad attitudes.
A friend of mine has a collage of pictures on his office wall and one of those says this: "Bad attitudes are like flat tires, you’re not going anywhere until you change it."
Step two to taking off those limitations
Develop a good, positive attitude:
A good positive attitude is more important than facts whether the facts are in your favor or not. We should always have a winning attitude that will allow us to break new and higher ground and position oneself to receive the blessing that Jesus paid for at the cross.
Be courageous, live bold and let your life be transformed by renewing the mind through the Word of God.
