Limitation and Answers

MSG6-15-14Melissa — We don’t get to determine what the answer must be when we call on God Almighty. That kind of determination is a prescription for indigestion. Why? Because we are working from a very limited soul-perspective of the situation with even more limited soul-solutions. This kind of limitation focuses on the impossible rather than the God of the impossible. He not only sees the problem, but where it came from (possibly from entitlement mindsets passed on through the bloodline?) and He sees the best solution for the complete fix. That right there is the kind of “great and mighty” answer we are truly looking for.

Endued Beyond Limitations

As the people of God assemble today may they realize that the potential that is in them is not merely human capacities but the impartation of Jehovah’s enablements, His compassion and His purposes. We are endued with gifts and abilities that are able to redemptively work beyond human limitations. Eph.3:20,TPT—“Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.”

Loosed From Past Limitations

HandsKnotUntyeMay the Lord break you loose from the past limitations of your family, even from many generations past. May you and your seed far surpass the deeds and accomplishments of your former generations so that the Lord is known as Almighty God to you and yours now, and in time to come. ”For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.” (Ps.100:5, KJV)

The Finger of God

Kathy — The source of their empowerment was limited which revealed it was not Almighty God. When Pharaoh asked Moses to pray the frogs abate, Moses said he would so that Pharaoh would know there is no one like the Lord God.  However, Pharaoh recognizing that truth did not make him want to submit to that Lord God. When next came the biting gnats or mosquitoes, the magicians had reached their limit. They could not produce gnats from dirt and certainly couldn’t turn gnats back into dirt. The magicians themselves admitted to Pharaoh then, “This is the finger of God!” We can’t top that!  Only God is All-Powerful.  All the abilities and manifestations of darkness will forever be limited by comparison.

Pushing Beyond the Acceptable

Man Call Out Yell.jpgWhen heaven invaded Jericho Road, the man was called “Blind” Bartimaeus. Bartimaeus was told to be quiet by those who held to conventional norms but he cried out directly to Jesus so that his life might be invaded by heaven (Mk.10:47). He pushed beyond what was normally acceptable and defied religious limitations and barriers. What are people calling you? How much longer will you accept that? Well… heaven is invading your road by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Acts10:38)

A Better Way to Live

CloudSunBreakThruLimitations bring groaning, despair and hopelessness. There is a better way to live. “Thy Kingdom come.” We must get the conduct and relationships of heaven into this earth. The fruit of the Spirit (Gal.5:22-25) manifests the conduct and relationships of heaven. We must get the power and benefits of heaven into this earth. The gifts of the Spirit (1Co.12:7-11) manifest the power of heaven over our limitations. 

Lifting Eyes Away From Present Circumstances

As the people of God assemble today, may they look to the hills from whence comes their help. May they look beyond the present limitations they struggle against and look to the focal point of Almighty God. May they look to Him Who sits on the throne and unto the Lamb.  ”I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]—From where shall my help come?  2  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (Ps.121:1-2, Amp)


Kingdom of Heaven

Jesus used the term “Kingdom of Heaven” attempting to get people’s focus off things that so readily paint a picture of the impossible. Such terminology as kingdomofheaven“Kingdom of Heaven” shows that it is God’s Kingdom that is in stark contrast to the limitations of earth and its finite mindsets. (Jn.18:36) Jesus said,  “My Kingdom is not of this world”. He just as well could have said, “My Kingdom is not of the mindset of this present age.” Jesus had a far different orientation, a far different point of reference and totally different values that He so longed for people to get connected to so they might live as sons and daughters with abundant life (Jn.10:10). We are praying you discover daily that the Kingdom of Heaven is close to you.  (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day. www.txpraise.com)

Is The Lord’s Power Limited?

limitlessnessgodThe Lord asked Moses in Num.11:23, “Is the Lord’s power limited?”   In difficult times have we thought the Lord’s power to be limited, even just a little bit, especially in areas of disease or national disturbance or international crises? Is the Lord’s power limited or are we sometimes guilty of considering someone else’s opinion instead of God’s Word? When the Lord told aged Sarah she would bear a child and Sarah doubted, he asked her in Gen.18:14 “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” God Almighty has never come up against a set of circumstances in an individual or a nation that was too hard for Him. God’s power is the same yesterday, today and forever. We are praying you discover daily the power of God working in your life.

God’s Planned Horizons

May you reach the next horizon with strength to spare and may you rocket into the heart of the God-ordained participation that awaits you horizonboatsunbeyond that horizon. May you realize the knowing and joy and fulfillment of participating with our Lord and His purposed-people over that horizon.  ”Jesus said, “You’re tied down to the mundane; I’m in touch with what is beyond your horizons. You live in terms of what you see and touch. I’m living on other terms.” (Jn.8:23, Msg)  Today, even now, we can lift our eyes beyond the limitations and doubts of our environment and our immediate circumstances. Today, we can hear the voice of Him Who calls us to open up our considerations for His possibilities. We are praying you discover daily Almighty God’s horizons and His desire to get you there. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24 hours/day. www.txpraise.com)


See Beyond the Norm

We must do something to see beyond our norm. What about an imagination that is available to God? Do we only see the mundane and the predictable BoyWearCapeand then do we pray and limit our expectations from that mundane perspective? Have we sentenced ourselves to only praying within the predictable because of past disappointments and the conclusions of others? Children run around with a towel tied around their neck imagining that they can fly, imagining they are super heroes until we talk them out of it. There is no evidence in scripture that anyone imagined the Red Sea parting. Phillip could not begin to imagine 5,000 people fed with only a couple of little fish and a little bit of bread. What if when we come up against the next impossible situation we just said, “Hey, what awesome way does God want to do this?”  “What would the average person never imagine in this situation?” Graham Cooke was quoted as saying,  “Sometimes I think that sin is not necessarily immorality or selfishness. Sometimes it just means we live drab, colorless, stale, and unimaginative lives before God.” Holy Spirit, quicken the Word of God within us to inspire us to see beyond the limiting realm of our daily existence. ”For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isa.55:9, KJV)


Available Imagination

A child is always full of anticipation and is always using their imagination to carry them beyond the mundane of ever-present limitations. When children approached Jesus in Mark 10:13-15 He expressed a desire to be surrounded by them and their minds ripe with anticipation. He announced to GirlLookingUpthe deeply, zealous religious people around Him that He desired they become like those little ones who don’t try entering the Kingdom with agendas, preconceived ideas, preferences and jaded imaginations which leave no room for the limitless possibilities of Almighty God. It would appear from this context that we will not see (v.15) the awesome, mind-shattering acts of the rule and power of Jehovah unless we approach Him with an imagination and attitude of anticipation to enter into His redemptive workings in this hour of unprecedented need and opportunity. Many have made their time, talents and money available to God to do the predictable, but mustn’t we make our childlike imaginations available to participate with a God Who has never been creatively stagnant and Who has never bowed to limit Himself to the mundane?

Marty audio excerpt: “God’s Will Has Never Changed”

Continuing to Choose Life

Chooselife(By Kathy G.) Some cocoons (entrapped, tough times in life) are common for many people, but we also have our customized cocoons, those tough times that are unique to us.  These come from matters that need resolve in our soul, like you may be having to work on a relationship that was damaged by jealousy or fear or anger.  Or you may be having to deal with problems you inherited, ongoing battles from choices made four generations ago.  Perhaps your forerunners  didn’t choose life and blessings and it caused  them to end up with a view of marriage that’s bound to fail.  So the next generation has to work through the trickle-down issues of divorce.  Or a generation made wrong career choices and bankrupted the whole family causing  poverty  conditions and limitations for decades.  Or a generation chose death and curses, deciding to be lawless, and the ripple effect undermined character to the point that a family or community or culture is cocooned in corruption. Can our struggles really be related to our purpose and our future when we can’t see any connection to either? We need to CHOOSE LIFE and bring CHANGE in our lifetime, and even expect change to ripple back to the previous generation.

Who Is In Heaven

CloudLightWho is in heaven . . .“Our Father who is in heaven,” releases a son from any earthly father’s shortcomings.  There will be no hindrance in our conversation because of a father’s bad  mood or because of an earthly father’s personal guilt or distraction or misunderstanding or prejudiced opinion or unjust anger or mistaken views or lack of foresight.  His being in heaven declares His Divine Supremacy while removing all human limitations.  We are praying to a powerful Father, the Father who is situated above all, the Father who controls the universe, the Father who is almighty, the Father who is subject to none, the Father who prevails over all.  Praying as a son changes the posture, scope and expectations in prayer.

In Bounds Or Out Of Bounds

The third thing the devil did was offer Jesus a way to get what He came after by getting out of bounds on a shortcut. FenceBoundsSatan offered to not oppose Him and give Him the kingdoms of this world (Rev. 11:15). Jesus knew the kingdoms of the world were to be His, but He knew better than to worship Satan to get them. Jesus was a mature son of strong character, and He was so intent upon obedience and self-government, that He couldn’t be tempted by success any other way. Adam and Eve did fall for the temptation to get out of bounds and reach beyond the will of God. Then, evidently, they did not truly repent because they passed on the “thinking of their heart” to the next generation. Cain cracked his own mirror also by reaching outside God’s boundaries with a sacrifice that wasn’t acceptable. Then his self-worth plummeted and his self-government completely toppled when he murdered his brother.

Beyond Limitations


converted PNM fileJesus instructed His disciples to pray that the Kingdom of Heaven would come to earth (Mt 6:10). That is one major reason why the moves of God and manifestations of God in this earth are so important—because they lift our sense-oriented sight and sense-enslaved minds beyond the pitiful limitations of man’s small world. Which brings me to ask the question: How in the world did Peter ever walk on water?! To see what we have never seen and to do what we have never done, we must connect to what we have never been connected to!

Exceed Limitations


Explaining Or Exceeding Limitations?

hands reaching up1If you think about it even now, this long after Calvary, over 2000 years after Jesus, the Last Adam restored the breach caused by the “1st  Adam-bomb,” we are still more conditioned to explain our limitations than to exceed them.  I grew up in church, but I never heard anyone preach that I could reach into God’s governmental order and change things in earth.  I’ve known more Fig-Leaf-Fugitives than Supermen in the church.   It’s sad, but church people usually know more about condemnation than they do dominion.  Maybe we haven’t been reaching into the governmental order of heaven to bring it to earth because churchianity has made us more pious than powerful.  It certainly shouldn’t be an either/or, but many Christians are better church-goers than they are sons.  Our firstpriority should be to focus on being a son who knows his Father and knows Him well enough to know what Father has already done, as well as what Father is presently doing, so we can be sons who take dominion and cause things on earth to line up with that.
