Breaking Off Limitations
2Ki 6:1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait/small for us.
2Ki 6:2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.
2Ki 6:3 And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go.
2Ki 6:4 So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood.
This chapter begins with the sons of the prophets realizing the place they had been living was TOO LIMITED.
That is when they asked permission of the prophet Elisha to go and ENLARGE their territory.
They began to chop down the trees to enlarge this place, and also removed the obstacles that blocked their vision.
Prophetically, I believe the Lord showed me it was time to remove the things that OBSTRUCT our view of who God is and ALL that He has made available to us.
It is time for us to have an ENLARGEMENT of the Kingdom of God RELEASED IN US!!!
We need to CRY OUT for an enlargement of our territory, but it BEGINS with enlarging our VIEW of Him.
He has GIVEN us EVERYTHING that pertains to life and godliness
BUT we have been LIMITED because of WHERE we have been living, and because of our PERCEPTION of His Kingdom.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to live in a place of limitation in any area any longer.
God WANTS to enlarge ALL of your territories.
Feeling Limited? Walk in the Fullness!
Have you ever felt limited?
Have you ever had seasons you feel you can't fully enter into all God has for you, because of the limitations?
I believe we have all felt limited at times, but we serve a God who gave us everything.
He desires for us to walk in the fullness of all He has released to us.
He also has made a way for us to walk in complete freedom with no limitations.
Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
If we are not walking and living in the abundant life, we need to find out WHY.
The Word also says….
Joh 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Jesus came to give us all freedom.
Let's join in agreement to have freedom from all limitations; this is part of God's plan for every one of us.
Another powerful thing that Jesus stated is….
Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
That is should be our hearts cry, "God, we want to walk in the fullness of ALL that You have made available for us.
If I don't see salvations, healing, cleansing of the leapers, healing of AIDS and HIV, the raising of the dead on a regular basis, then I am not FULLY walking in all Jesus paid for and has intended for me.
We can get so caught up with daily life that we lose sight of the living reality that is before us: Jesus has given us ALL, and He has GREATER plans for us.
Preach the Gospel Where You are At
There is a great commission and we are all called to it:
We are commanded to go into all the world and preach the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ.
Some of you may say, That limits me.
Well, not really. Where is your world? You can reach out WHERE YOU LIVE
We must no longer allow WRONG THINKING and mindsets to govern what we perceive to be effective.
Don't allow discouragement to bring limitation.
If you don't see it at first, then there will be a next time.
What God has for us, man cannot stop, if we pursue God and His Kingdom.
LISTEN…..Your Authority is with God, Not Man
When we pursue God fully, all the things of the world fall away.
Let's focus on Him, His face, His goodness, His glory, His truth, His provision, His covenant to us!
The Lord told me…..That the Enemies of the Past are Being Cut Off
Is it your past that is limiting you?
How does that take place?
Know your God and His Word, His covenant, seek Him and His face, praise Him.
We are instruments of praise; let's release the new sounds of praise within us.
Also, we need to change our minds and focus on all that Jesus has done for us.
Praise Him daily for it…….
Psa 103:1 <A Psalm of David.> Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Psa 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Psa 103:4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Psa 103:5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Psa 103:6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Psa 103:7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
Psa 103:8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
Psa 103:9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
Psa 103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
Psa 103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Psa 103:13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
Psa 103:14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
Psa 103:15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
Psa 103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
Psa 103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
Psa 103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
Psa 103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
Psa 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Psa 103:21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
Psa 103:22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
We need to change our focus.
Listen…….What you FOCUS ON, YOU EMPOWER..
Look at the Lord and His promises and ask Him to give you a deeper revelation of Him and His Kingdom.
This is a season of renewed passion, and as we enter into the heart of God daily, we are finding a deeper revelation of all.
