Limitless

 Wrap your mind around this one, if you can: the universe in all its vastness cannot contain God. His greatness is immeasurable, and that makes Him limitless! And yet, so many limit Him in their lives; even though, He “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” (Ephesians 4:20). God’s abilities are far superior to anything we could collectively think or image. As big as our imaginations are, He is bigger. And perhaps, the problem lies in our imaginations. At times, they are misused by the way we think. They are designed for vision and creativity. We are implored to think on things above (see Philippians 4:6-9), but how many of us actually do? On what do you meditate?

   Consider the following: Jesus said, “Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:22-24).

   Jesus did not say, “Have faith in God, say unto this mountain, ‘be thou removed;’ and then, try to figure out how He was going to do it.” Therein lies a problem for several people. They pray, asking God for whatever is in their heart, and then get stuck in their head trying to figure out how He’s going to do it. Or worse, try to figure out how He could even pull it off. These are self-imposed limitations that lead to doubt. In other words, God is most definitely not the problem here, it’s their thinking. They’re in their head, not their heart.

   Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Some need to get back to childlike trust. Typically, young children believe anything you tell them, without question. They haven’t been lied to yet (or at least unaware), so everything is true to them. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world where deception and lies live. At some point, trust gets broken, or even decimated when it happens repeatedly. This is especially true if the lies come from parents who are supposed to be guardians of their children’s hearts. “How could I possibly trust God Whom I can’t see, when I can’t even trust my own parents whom I do see?” What a dilemma. Fortunately, because God is such an awesome Father, He made provision for our trust and belief. He gave us Jesus and Holy Spirit Who lives in us, and enables us to have faith by His grace. Remember this one simple truth: it’s impossible for God to lie (see Hebrews 6:18)!

   Here is a major key to childlike trust and answered prayer: forgiveness. That is one thing Jesus adds to Mark 11:22-24 in terms of mountain moving faith (His faith) and receiving affirmative answered prayer. Mark 11:25-26 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Forgiveness actually helps usher us into to childlike trust. Moreover, it was God’s forgiveness that enabled us to have a new beginning. Forgiving others, ourselves and even God for some, clears the past from holding us from our future. There is so much freedom in letting go!

   Of course, there are parameters when it comes to answered prayer. One we’ve already covered: faith. Another one is His will. 1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us: And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him. By studying Scripture, seeking His will in everything and with that, listening to what He has to say, we can know His will and pray accordingly. Listening is paramount to a limitless life!

   Trust God with the things, and don’t try to figure how He’s going to accomplish them. Change your focus. Again, Jesus said to look to the things above, not beneath. Meditate on God’s greatness. Declare, “no limitations!” Look in the mirror and tell the person looking back at you, “You are who God says you are, you can do what He says you can do, and He is limitless!”  

   1 Kings 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
