. . . with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
Possible – capable of existing; being true, being accomplished; being used for a particular purpose.
There are many benefits to trusting God, and putting our faith in His Word. As we continue to feast on the Word, it penetrates our hearts and minds, renewing them, and thereby changing our thoughts and attitudes.
The more we feast on the Word, the quicker the limits we place on God will be removed. Limits that have been implanted through:
- Unbelief, doubt, and worry;
- Believing what others say about God;
- The indoctrinalization by parents and other persons of influence; and
- Walking according to our own imagination and feelings.
God wants us to remove the limits because as we place limits on His ability to fulfill His promises, we correspondingly place limits on our receiving the fullness of our blessings and our ability to fulfill our God-given purposes.
When we remove the limits through reading, studying, and meditating on the Word of God, we can soar like an eagle through the sky. We can know with assurance through the most difficult circumstances, that “God is able to do the impossible.”
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:4)
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. (Proverbs 3:5-7)
Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God. They are bowed down and fallen, but we are risen and stand upright. (Psalm 20:7-8)
By trusting in God we:
- Receive strength mightier than the Rock of Gibraltar;
- Receive joy that is everlasting through God’s everlasting presence;
- Receive our heart’s desire;
- Receive blessings to be a blessing.
- Receive a crown of pure gold, representing the purity of our heart, mind, and soul.
- Receive long life.
- Receive great glory.
- Receive splendor and majesty.
When we trust in God unreservedly (without an ounce of doubt), we place ourselves in a “Risen” position and remain there. However, once doubt creeps in, we immediately begin to fall away, our faith begins to weaken, and we begin to lose sight of God and His purposes for our lives
WE MUST STAY FOCUSED and REMOVE THE LIMITS IN OUR LIVES.
