I am burdened that far too many Christians believe that they are limited. I firmly believe that there is no limit to our God given potential. The Child of God is a miracle – an expression of God’s supernatural transforming power, embodying miracles waiting to happen – as God continues to manifest his His power and blessings in you and through you.
Limitation is a carnal concept. When people tell you that you don’t have the ability to achieve and succeed, it is because they are relating to what they see with their natural eyes. They are describing your abilities and limitations in relation to human limitations, which are very often observed in this physical world.
OUR DIVINE NATURE
Let us affirm that there is no limit to our God-given potential. We feel limited when we do not see ourselves as being endowed with the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent Spirit of God. Remember that we are “partakers of the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4). I am not saying that we are little gods, or ‘Holy Spirit jr.’ But we, being made in the image and likeness of God, are made to reflect His glory. We can therefore understand spiritual truths, we can know God’s perfect will for our lives and we can achieve material prosperity and love other people, regardless of what may have happened to us in this world.
In the parable of the vine and the branches (John 15: 5-11), Jesus Christ, the Son of God Himself speaks of dwelling in the believer’s life, enabling him/her to bring forth the fruit of spiritual understanding and material blessings provided that the believer is embedded / has a personal relationship with God. Remember, that “in God, we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST
“We have the mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). The mind of Christ is characterised by the ability to mediate and understand the truths of God. We are told in Psalm 1:2 that the mind of the righteous person delights in meditating on the law of the Lord – that is, all of the truths of God written in the Bible, including the ability of mankind to receive abundantly and limitlessly both spiritually and materially. Also, remember the spiritually minded person takes a spiritual perspective on past life events (Deuteronomy 32: 7); understands the purpose of chastisement (Deuteronomy 8:5), attributes prosperity to the goodness of God (1 Samuel 12:24) and learns deep lessons from observing God’s creation (Matthew 6: 28 – 29).
With the mind of Christ, we can know what God’s perfect will for our lives is. We can look back on our past, we can understand what is happening in the present and see God’s clear direction and understand what our purpose on this earth is. On this basis, I firmly believe that if we have the mind of Christ, we are inspired by God to ask for the things that are in agreement with God’s perfect will for us. We can visualize in faith whatever we desire to become, without any thought of human limitation and receive it in reality – God willing! That said, God will enable us and therefore there is no limit to our God-given potential.
In Part 2, I will speak about finding our purpose and using our God-given potential to achieve it.
