The limit breaker – Part 2
Text: Num. 13:26-33
In our last study on this series, we saw that a limit simply means a drawn line meant to curtail or restrain, to peg or place a barrier that would define a boundary or restriction. For instance, if you tell a man on a wheelchair to go upstairs to your room to get you something, he cannot do that because he is limited or constrained. Sitting on the wheelchair or being lame means he lacks the ability to walk upstairs. We also looked at some of the things that can limit a man; how some people are unable to take a step forward because of fear of the unknown. They are limited and intimidated by fear; hence they are stuck in one place. For fear of the unknown or fear of failing. They virtually stick to their comfort zones where they can easily predict the outcomes. But 2 Tim. 1:7 has assured us: “God has not given us the spirit of fear.”
Again, a lot of people are also limited by their wrong mindset. Your mindset is the combination of your thought or what you think. In Prov, 23:7, the scripture says: “For as he thinketh in his heart, so (is) he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart [is] not with thee…” Pro. 23:7. If you must break the limit in your life, you must change your thoughts or mindset.
In Num. 13, all the spies sent by Moses to Jericho came with the report that the land was indeed flowing with milk and honey, but only two believed that they could conquer and took the land from the giants that were dwelling in it. The rest have a grasshopper mentality; they were already defeated in their hearts that they are not able to conquer. Those with ‘I cannot do it’ attitude always end up in defeat even before they begin. Romans 12:2 says: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
To conform means to take the shape of a thing, but to be transformed is to take another shape entirely. Those who make bread do not use the same mould to make small and big loaves of bread. You need a big mould to make a bigger loaf of bread. So also is your mindset. You get a transformed or bigger mindset by the renewal of your mind through the word of God. Reading good books and sourcing for information can also transform your mindset.
Your mindset should not be determined by your present condition or predicament. Though you have no child, house or money now, God says believe that you have one and stop going round looking for someone to pity you in your condition.
Furthermore, you can limit God with your container. You cannot come to God for a trainload of blessings with a teacup size container. If God should pour even a bucket full of tea into that teacup, a lot of it will waste. Hence, He says enlarge your tent. Get a bigger container; get a bigger idea or vision to get the bigger miracle and breakthrough you prayed for.
In conclusion, know that you are a limit breaker. Until you get to the level God wants you to attain, do not stop. If you lack ideas or visions, look at the ideas or vision of others. Buy their ideas and add yours to it and it becomes bigger. The higher the altitude you aspire for, the better would your attitude or mindset be.
I decree to a reader of this message, every witchcraft powers limiting your destiny is thereby destroy, in Jesus’ name.
