Limit?…what limit?

Could you ever imagine yourself telling God:

“God, You suck! Every time You try to do something, You fail! Who do You think you are? What makes You think that You can even do that? Are You crazy? You’re not good enough. You are so stupid!” 

You couldn’t, right? (I’m hoping you couldn’t LOL) But those are, at times, some of the things we have said to ourselves in any given situation. There have been plenty of times when I have found myself saying that I wasn’t good enough or told myself that I couldn’t do certain things because of *insert dumb reason here* and I’m sure you have too. There are so many limits and restrictions that we put on ourselves and our abilities. But what I have learned is that when you limit yourself, you are also limiting the God in you. So, essentially, when you say that you can’t do something, you are basically telling God that He can’t do it either. 

There are so many things that we can limit God in. You may be limiting God in your gifts or abilities  by saying that you are not good enough. For instance, you may be one of the best gospel singers in the world, but because you think that your voice isn’t good enough you don’t let God use the gift that He gave you. That’s limiting God. You may be one of the best writers in the world and God may have called you to change lives through writing books, but because you think that your writing sucks, you never do it. That’s limiting God. You may even be limiting God in your relationship with Him. Maybe you feel like He cannot use you to minister to others because of your past. So because you are afraid of what people may say about you, you never share your testimony. That’s limiting God. Your focus should never be on what you cannot do, but rather on what God can do through you. After all, it’s never really about us to begin with. 

We may be uncertain of our capabilities but the good and comforting thing to know is that God knows what we are capable of and what He has put in us. In the future, instead of saying, “I’m not good enough,” say, “God is good enough.” Instead of saying, “I cannot do this,” say, “God can help me do this.” So the next time you try to limit yourself, remember that God entrusted you with your unique personality, gifts, and abilities and because of that, you are good enough. Stop putting limits on things that God created and intended to be limitless.
