Have you ever looked at your life and felt stuck in your circumstances? So many people are living limited lives and don’t even realize they can do something about it. They limit themselves by what they can see or what they knew growing up. They limit themselves by what their family has accomplished—if no one in their family went to college, they think they can’t either. They let other people define them, or they let their resources define them. They are limited because their focus is limited.
If you’ve settled where you are in life, take this truth in: when you acknowledge God, there are no limits. When you put Him first, you are not limited by your circumstances, your past, the economy, or what you have been told you can or can’t do. You are the only one who sets the limits for your life, and today, you can take the limits off by putting your faith and hope in Almighty God!
In Psalm 3, King David said, “Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! … But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” When he wrote this scripture, he was in a very difficult situation. He was actually running for his life. But notice, David didn’t just tell the Lord all about his problems. He didn’t just sit and think, Looks like it’s all over for me. I guess there’s no way out. No, David spoke faith and made the choice to take his eyes off of his circumstances and focus on his limitless God!
Today, no matter how things look around you, what matters most is what’s happening in you. Take the limits off by trusting God. Follow David’s example, and instead of just telling God about your problems, focus on His promises and declare His Word over your life!
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NKJV)
