This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: John 15:5 (NIV)
Today I want you to know that limitations for you are not limitations for God.
Many times you may have a deep desire to create something new—to start a new chapter—but you are halted when fear begins to whisper your limitations to you one by one. You size up your outcome and close the book on your new chapter without factoring in the role God would play.
What you fail to picture is that God is working right alongside you, co-creating with you. When God is in the picture, you and your efforts become limitless. This was surely the case for Harriet Tubman, the slave turned abolitionist.
Harriet was born a slave, but she refused to die as one. When she took that daring leap of faith and ran away, her life was riddled with limitations. She would have to endure a 100-mile journey to freedom—on foot and all alone—all while coping with an illness that would leave her unconscious for long periods of time.
Despite this, she would make more than a dozen mission trips to free more than seventy slaves. Harriet claimed that God was with her each step of the way, and with the completion of each trip, she gave Him all the glory.
As today is inauguration day, we embrace a new chapter in American life with several limitations before us. I pray our new leaders understand that limitations for them are not limitations for God.
Have you allowed what you perceive as your limitations to hold you back? If so, remember these words: “If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” John 15:5 (NIV)
So today, NO limitations.
