Becoming Limitless with A Limitless God

God never disappoints. If we allowed this one truth to really be rooted in our hearts, we would find that life is so much sweeter. There are many people that are having a very difficult time. Whether it is grief, financial trouble, health challenges, relationship issues, or extreme sadness, everyone has their own unique challenges, and they may be worried about a set of circumstances they feel are too hard to manage. When we are feeling overwhelmed by the tribulations and troubles of life, we are vulnerable. Our defenses are down, our energy level is low, and we are more susceptible to believe what our conditions and circumstances are telling us. It’s in this vulnerable state that the enemy begins to really pour it on and bombard us. This is done so that we will doubt God, but we should never give in to tricks of the enemy. If we will learn to lay down our agendas and trust God, He will show us that our destiny is to be in partnership with Him. It is to become limitless in Christ with a limitless God.

Psalm 24:1(NKJV) says, The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” Everything belongs to God. There’s not one thing that isn’t His. Because of His generosity, mercy, and grace, He shares His bounty with us through Jesus Christ. He has demonstrated for us that this is how His love behaves. We must comprehend the reality that He designed blessings to show up as our partnership with Him is walked out in faith through our everyday existence. When we’re born, everything that we need throughout our life’s journey isn’t given to us. Some blessings in the form of all we need to thrive, grow, live, and be happy are given as we mature. They are acquired as we develop the maturity level to first recognize we need those things, and secondly, to realize we receive them as we learn to believe and trust God’s provision.

You and I have been empowered by God to exercise faith. The quality of our lives is built on this. James 2:26(NKJV) says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” Our Heavenly Father has set up earth as a training ground. This is where we learn to walk by the Spirit and to walk by faith. We have to be trained because as human beings, we cling to things that have nothing to do with our destiny and the purpose for which we were born. This is a simple truth. We cling to the things that make us comfortable, and we are not good judges of the occasions when our clinging to stuff gets out of hand. We cling to material things, people, relationships, places, traditions and cultures, and we can unknowingly let our purpose to grow in Christ slip to second place. God and His Kingdom can never be second place. So, life will not positively sustain this when it happens. As a result of not putting God first, the devil can use the slip as an opening, and we are attacked in our circumstances and conditions.  

If we’re in a position where we are trying to cling to something in the earth, to the point where we are running the risk of making that thing an idol, our faith has taken a back seat. Sometimes we don’t realize this until it’s too late, and we have lost tremendous stamina and momentum on this Christian journey. All of us have a habit of becoming too comfortable with where we are, and we forget that earth is not our home, we’re just passing through. So, we can’t afford to let anything get in the way of us continuing to exercise faith muscles, so we stay spiritually strong.

The challenges of life aren’t fun. Some of them are no skips through fields of daisies, but God will never abandon us. He will hold our hands and walk with us. While He’s doing this, we can be sure that He’s going to be teaching us how to increase our faith. Our circumstances and conditions tell us that we’re not going to make it, that things are too bad, and we feel too bad to ever feel like ourselves again. We are convinced our hearts are too broken, and we are too exhausted to help ourselves, but in truth this is the best condition for our greatest victories. God tells us in 2Corinthians 12:9 that His strength is made perfect in weakness. So, we must fully surrender to God and lean on Him with all that is within us.

How do we fully surrender?

God commands us in Ephesians 4:23(NKJV), “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” Surrendering to God through the Lord Jesus Christ requires us to renew our minds to His Word. The signal of our surrender is understanding that what God has is always infinitely better for us than anything we could come up with on our own. That old mindset of doubt has to be swapped out for a new mindset of faith in Christ. God will help us. Ephesians 3:20(NLT) says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” God’s Spirit lives within us, and the Spirit’s power has no limits. When we surrender in the name of Jesus Christ, we are submitting ourselves under the Spirit’s power, so God can accomplish infinitely more than you and I can think or imagine.

Do not limit yourself by trying to place a limit on what God is willing and able to do. Your mind and heart hold the key. God’s resources are unlimited. He can bring breakthroughs and deliverance in ways we’ve never dreamed, but we have to do our parts as well. There are times when the thing we’ve clung to most is removed. This isn’t punishment, it’s life’s way of showing us that we are relying on something other than God to be our sufficiency. It’s not a time to acquiesce to pain and suffering. It’s a time to seek God with all that is within us. If we ask with earnestness and humility, He will help us release the anxiety and worry of what is no longer present, so we can embrace what He wants to pour into our lives. We must always be mindful that there is no limit to what God can do, and there is no limit to what we can do through Him. ■
