Limiting Ourselves



Let’s talk about limiting ourselves.


Kris Reece – “It’s in your power to stop building a case that supports any self-limiting belief. Instead, build a case that supports the truth. As with anything new, repairing your thought process takes practice. But the more you practice replacing self-limiting beliefs with truth, the closer you’ll be to a transformed life.”


We can replace self-doubt and limiting thoughts that Satan tried to tell us with the truth God tells us in His Word and in that we can know He is unlimited and will guide us through.


In the article I was reading about Christians, there's a list of common self-limiting statements we often make. For example, "I don’t care what others think of me," or "If it’s meant to be, it will be," or "I’ll be happy when/if…" These statements reflect our tendency to limit ourselves and underestimate what God can do.


Proverbs 23:7a in the NKJV says, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”

This indicates that our thoughts shape our reality, and often, we limit ourselves by what we believe we can achieve.


We often believe we can only do what we perceive ourselves capable of. This self-limitation leads to stagnation or even regression. Instead of recognizing God's limitless power, we focus on our own limitations.

In the past month alone, I've found myself doing things I never thought possible, feeling unequipped all the while. Yet, God has provided me with the courage and abilities necessary to just get up and do what I needed to do.


Romans 8:1, “And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.”


We needn't restrict the potential God has instilled in us. The Holy Spirit empowers us to overcome various challenges. Though it may seem overwhelming at times, God assists us in carrying our burdens and sees us through.


Rather than making excuses, we should turn to prayer. We can openly express our limitations to God, seeking His peace and confidence to overcome and say, God I feel limited right, but you are a limitless God, and you know how all this will work out. Help me Lord to feel your peace and please help me to have the confidence that I will make it through because I know you are with me in all of this.


Ephesians 3:20, “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.”


When feeling insecure or limited, we must remember God's boundless nature. Scripture attests to His limitless power, from the creation of the world to the miracles of Jesus and even the resurrection. God continues to work in extraordinary ways today, transcending our comprehension.

Let's not confine God to our understanding but recognize His infinite capabilities. He can achieve far more than we conceive, ask, or imagine because He is limitless.
