When limitations are the only thing you see…..

I was laying down on my bed yesterday afternoon when a

thought came to me. A thought that woke me up and made

me think…..


“Just remember something, when you speak to God you are

the one who sees the boundaries and the limitations, not God!

God doesn’t see any boundaries when He speaks to us.”


I woke up instantly and wrote the statement down. As I

pondered on that thought I realized how true that statement

was, especially in my life.

How many times I have felt God say something only to

rationalize it away. But we serve a God who knows no

boundaries and the people who serve Him know every

boundary! But it must stop! God wants us to trust Him.

He wants us to look past the obstacles and the limitations.



Elijah replied, “Hear the word of the Lord. This is what

the Lord says: About this time tomorrow, a seah of the

finest flour will sell for s shekel and two seahs of barley

for a shekel at the gate of Samaria.

The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the

man of God, “Look, even if the Lord should open the

floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?

You will see it with your own eyes, answered Elisha, but

you will not eat any of it.” 2 Kings 7:1, 2


We all know the conclusion of the story. God used four

lepers to save the city. But before that all happened

we know the city Elijah was in was under siege. There

was a famine and they were powerless to do anything.

No wonder the army officer said what he said. But

consider this, the army officer saw obstacle after

obstacle but God saw victory, life, and breakthrough!


Let’s take a look at another example. Think about

Gideon. God called him to save his people but what

does he do???


Pardon me, my Lord, Gideon replied, but how can

I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh,

and I am the least in my family.” Judges 6:15


Gideon saw obstacles and limitations. There are only

a few people in the word of God who believed the

first time! But for us to walk in all God has for us the

limitations must go. We surely need the grace of God

to see God as He really is. The first step is to recognize

we have put limitations.

The second step is to bring them to God and ask Him

to help us.


God has so much more in store for you.

We are not meant to deal with the “how” when God speaks,

we are just meant to believe. God will deal with the how.

This is something you must train yourself to do. You

train yourself by spending more time with God. He will

increase your faith. He will give you the peace you need

as you trust Him without limit.


I have failed so many times in my faith with God.

I have doubted Him and have even given up at times.

And that’s what it’s all about. I read a post today which was

extremely challenging. Karina asked the question,

Do you really believe Luke 1:37 which says:

“For with God nothing is impossible”?

Do you really believe, with God nothing is impossible??

Read her post here.

Remember, when God speaks we are the ones who see the

limitations and the boundaries, He doesn’t. When He

speaks into your life about your life He sees it as done!


Will you trust Him today? Will you make the decision

to look past the boundaries and limitations and believe

the One who doesn’t see the limitations???

  1. Zechariah 4:7 For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him] you shall become a plain [a mere [a]molehill]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it!
    Psalm 18:28 or You light my lamp; The LORD my God illumines my darkness. 29For by You I can run upon a troop; And by my God I can leap over a wall…33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.

  2. Hi Roland: As I stated in my article, “What size box do you have God in?” we have the boxes, not Him. You are so right. We place the limitations, not Him. Good article. Have a great week.

  3. Dear, brother Rolain.
    Thank you for mentioned me and linked my post to yours. What a great insight here and I will put this on my post as a related article to read. Many blessings to you,brother 🙂

  4. Such a challenging post Rolain! Wow… I’m so grateful we serve a limitless God who sees no boundaries. We sure are good at imagining all sorts of obstacles that aren’t even there. Praying each of us can get a God’s-eye view of the challenges in our lives…

    • Thanks Ali….God wants to do so much in our lives and we just need to believe. We need to get to a place where we understand God is bigger than any obstacle we will ever face. He knows this and He wants us to know it to….I am so challenged by this word!
      God bless you Ali….

    The word that came to you is awesome!!
    I attended a day of recollection yesterday where the boundaries we set on ourselves was very much in focus. Reading your post today is a wonderful conclusion to those reflections.

    • Hi
      I am glad to hear that. God wants us to look past the boundaries….the many obstacles we have put in our own way. May He help us EVERY time we limit Him and make excuses…..
