Be a no-limits person

9 July 2023 ‘All things are possible for the one who believes.’ Mark 9:23 NKJV

There’s a story of an old foreman who worked hard and expected a similar work ethic from his workers. One day one of them joked, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know!’ Smiling, he replied, ‘Yes – but I wasn’t the foreman on that job!’ No-limits people refuse to accept things as they are because they see them as they can be. Instead of saying, ‘It can’t be done,’ they rise up in faith and say, ‘All things are possible for the one who believes.’ No-limits people have faults and failures like everybody else. The difference is, they walk by faith to the edge of what seems possible to a human mind, believing that when they get there, God will fill them with His strength and make a way for them through the things that seem impossible. In other words, they plug into God’s unlimited power supply. The author of the book of Hebrews describes no-limits people like this: ‘Who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle’ (Hebrews 11:33-34 NIV). These people started out weak, but they became strong ‘through faith.’ They had the kind of faith that sees the odds, the obstacles, and the opposition as insignificant, and declares, ‘I am what God says I am, I have what God says I have, and I can do what God says I can.’ Today, ask God to help you rise above your fears and uncertainty, and make you a no-limits person.
