But he told me: “My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ’s power will live in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9.
God’s calling isn’t for perfect people, He’s willing to work with us while we grow to do good things to change us and other people’s lives. Isaiah 1:18. We see this with the disciples. Jesus didn’t take the elite, richest, smartest people. In fact, he took ordinary people, like fishermen, tax collectors,
God called Abraham he was too old, Jacob, was a deceiver. Moses was a stutterer. David was an adulterer. Gideon was insecure. Jonah ran from God. Jeremiah was too young. Sarah was impatient. Thomas was a doubter. Paul was a murderer. Zacchaeus was short and well. Lazarus, he was dead. So, what’s what’s your excuse? Why is it that you think you can’t do something great for God? If God can use all those kinds of people who did all those bad things, why can’t he use you?
1 Corinthians 1:26-29. 26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him.
God allows some of Ur limitations are to bring you close to God. And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD.” Exodus 14:4
Men throw broken things away, but God never ever uses anything or anybody until they are first broken.
In Luke 9:16 God took a little lad’s lunch and broke it and fed the multitudes by breaking it he was taking away the limitation. God will never allow your limitations to crush you but make u stronger.
God can use us, even despite our limitations. We all have shortcomings, faults, weaknesses, things that we may consider to be a personal handicap. we’re not smart enough, don’t make enough money, something wrong with our body This are excuses for accepting mediocrity in our life. You got to do your part and get in agreement with God.
What Zacchaeus thought was his greatest liability turned out to be his greatest asset for his God. God Doesn’t make any mistakes? Your size, your personal? Your gifts, your skin colour, nothing about you is by accident. You have been fearfully and wonderfully made.
If you needed a different personality, God would have given you what you. God told Jeremiah that he was going to be a prophet to the nation, that he is going to do great things. Jeremiah said, God, I can’t do that. I’m too young. I wouldn’t know what to say. I’ve got these limitations. God answered back quickly.
Jeremiah, quit talking about your limitations. Quit thinking you don’t have what it takes. Don’t settle for mediocrity.
If God chose us just based on our background, on our past performance or even our talent and our ability, none of us would have a chance. He doesn’t choose us because of what we are. He chooses us because of what we can become.
The reality is, there’s nothing you’ve done in your life that has disqualified you from doing great things. You just have to learn to see yourself the way God does. He sees you as a it’s a work in progress. The Bible even says that we are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works as he prepared us in advance to do so.
You may feel weak, but God says, take the strength you have and you will succeed. You may feel unprepared. God says, well, you’re equipped. I gave you what you need to win this battle.
start seeing yourself the way God does, seeing yourself with all your good qualities. We all have good things in us, but too much of our time is spent focusing on the negative limitations. use those strengths that you have to do great things. focus on your positives, you will do great things despite your limitations.
It is only when you challenge your capacity that you discover your capacity. don’t be content with your capacity.
you serve a God who is unlimited and can do immeasurably more than you ask or imagine Ephesians 3:20. The man at the gate called Beautiful begged for alms because he wasn’t able to walk, but I could beg. So, we learn to back. He’d learn to survive off of what other people gave him.
Peter and John were willing to reach down and show him what he could do that he never knew he had inside of them. You know, church is a place where you don’t just come to be comforted. A lot of people come to church to be comforted in their dysfunction. What if he wants to challenge you beyond your dysfunction and make you new and give you the power to do what you never knew you can do?
You start with what you have and see, the Macedonian church didn’t have much. But when they gave within their capacity, God increased their capacity and all of us come to church and come into faith with this little box of what God can do and what we can do. And we bring God, our limitations. And when we are met at the level of our own low expectations, we become disappointed and assume that God was limited, when in fact it was our lead that kept us from seeing what God could do through us.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. Don’t wait for conditions to align before you take a step of faith and commit yourself, how many people are conditional in their faith. I would if I could. I would if I could I mean, ………….
I believe God wants to increase your faith and your capacity. The woman said, I don’t have any oil. He said, go get some Jars. She said, I don’t need jar’s, I need oil. But he said, until you increase your capacity, God cannot release provision.
You’ve got to make room for got to move in your life.
Your ability to believe will never catch up with God’s ability to perform. God is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine.
What you think you can be, become, can do? And I suggest that the current limitations in your life might not be a result of your capacity, but your conditioning. Your mental conditioning, your spiritual conditioning. You may not be where you want to be, but you’re not where you used to be.
