No Limit on Limitations
For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit.
John 3:34, NIV
There’s no limit to our limitations in life. Our dreams, desires, and usefulness can be frustrated by physical frailties or disabilities of a thousand kinds—by financial problems, by geographical barriers, by legal restrictions, by family considerations, and more.
But you can do whatever God calls you to do despite your limitations, for He gave His Spirit to Jesus without limit, and we are the extension of Jesus in this world.
In practical terms, that means we should stop worrying about what we can’t do, and start doing what we can do. We should do it with enthusiasm, as working for the Lord and not for men (Colossians 3:23). We should wave off discouragement, and trust God to finish what He has begun in us.
Don’t focus on your limitations. Acknowledge them, yes. But focus on the unlimited grace, power, mercy, and plan of your Savior.
If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory.
