lamp-light1
MEMORISE : Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too
hard for me? JEREMIAH 32 : 27.

READ : ISAIAH 40 : 6 – 8.
6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all
the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:
7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD
bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.
8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand
for ever.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 2 CHRONICLES 18 : 28 – 20 : 37 AND LUKE 23 : 44 – 24 : 12.

Your ability to perform well depends largely on the power and resources
available to you. Every human being will be faced with the reality of
insufficient resources in the face of a pressing need at one point or the other.
Hence, economists advise us to forgo certain alternatives, and draw up a scale
of preference on our needs. Man’s limitations have caused the introduction of
certain words and phrases into our vocabulary, such as: impossible, cannot, too
late, irreversible, etc. All these reflect our state of human limitation and
incapacity. Even God recognises man’s limitations. Psalm 103 : 14 says :
“For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.”
Our natural frailty and limitation is exposed in today’s Bible reading, where
man is described as grass that withers easily. Also, Bildad the Shuhite describes
man as a frail worm in Jobs 25 : 6 :
“How much less man, that is a worm? And the son of man, which is a worm?”
It is therefore evident that as long as we are confined within our natural
sphere, human beings remain seriously limited.
However, God is not limited. He declared in Jeremiah 32 : 27 thus :
“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for
me?”

Since He owns the Heavens and the earth and everything in them, and because
He has all power, He is able to do all things. He does not accommodate limiting
words in His vocabulary like men do. How then can we break the yoke of
limitation in our lives? It is by being connected to the only One who cannot be
limited. When such a link is in place, whatever cannot limit God cannot limit
you. What cannot stop God cannot stop you. This is because you have become a
partaker of the divine nature ( 2 Peter 1 : 4 ). But you must renew your mind
to walk in this reality. To this end, it is necessary to re-examine your
vocabulary and delete all limiting words from it. You are what you think; your
mindset determines your reality. Many people who had the potential of reaching
great heights in their lifetime were stopped by their wrong belief system and
limited mindset. You would be amazed to know that what witchcraft cannot
stop cannot be stopped by the limiting thoughts you hold about yourself.
Beloved, from now on, do not limit yourself. Rather, believe everything God
says about you and confess it. Speak God’s Word over that impossible
situations, and you shall see it change to conform to your confessions.

PRAYER POINT :
Father, in everyway, I have limited myself, I release myself from it today in
Jesus Name.
