Limitless- (adj.)Having no limit or limits; unrestricted: limitless authority; the limitless reaches of outer space. (American Heritage Dictionary)

It's time for you to believe for increase. I want to challenge you to let go of little dreams, little goals, little plans. You will think 2,400 or so thoughts today & since you're already thinking, why not think & believe big. There’s incredible untappped potential in your life right now! God wants tap into the potential that He has deposited on the inside of you. God wants you to live the limitless life that He purchased for you thru the death of His son Jesus Christ on a cross 2,000 years ago!. If you want to be limitless, here's what you need to do:
1. You Need To Understand Your Limits. (Samson- Judges 13-16)
Jesus qualified us for Gods blessing. Wisdom is 1 of His blessings. Walk in wisdom, obey His principles &build a great life. When you have God's vision for your life it will bring focus & restrain you from making decisions that are not wise.
“Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:7 (NCV)
“You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial. 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others.” 1 Cor. 10:23-24
The best question that you can ever ask if you are unsure about whether or not God wants you to do something is simply this, "What’s the wisest thing to do in light of my past experience, my current circumstance, & my future hopes & dreams?"
2. You Can't Be Limited By The Limitations Of Others. (Elisha- 2 Kings 2)
Walt Disney was told that He lacked talent by his art teacher, Elvis Presley was told repeatedly that he didn’t have the talent necessary to make it in the music industry. The Beatles, Abe Lincoln, Babe Ruth & Bill Gates are just a few examples of people that were told they wouldn’t make it in their field. Don’t allow others to create your life for you, they’ll always create it too small!
Elisha asked the prophet Elijah if he could receive a "double portion" of his anointing, & He did. (see 2 Kings 2:9) He wasn't limited by what this great prophet had done with his life. God wants you to see your life from His perspective & believe big!
Remember, you are“... fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14
You were born an original, don't die a copy!
3. You Can't Be Limited By Your Limitations. (Ehud- Judges 3:12-30)
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” -Anais Nin Look at the limitations of your life from God's perspective.
“Give yourselves to God... Surrender your whole being to him to be used for righteous purposes.” Romans 6:13 (TEV)
" By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life...". 2 Peter 1:3 NLT
Give your limitations to God & watch Him remove & use them by His power & for His glory! Choose to live a limitless life today!
