[Seeds of Destiny 24 November 2019 Devotional]
To rise above where you are, you must think above where you are. Your mentality affects your liberty from captivity.
SCRIPTURE: And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested. – 1 Chronicles 4:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To rise above where you are, you must think above where you are. Your mentality affects your liberty from captivity.
Limitation, according to Dictionary.Com is a limiting condition; a restrictive weakness; lack of capacity; inability or handicap. It is something that limits – a bound or restriction. Limitation is also the state or condition of being restrained, confined or restricted from doing or becoming what you are meant to do or become.
In our world today, the enemy has caged many destinies; the escalated dimensions of the activities of witches and wizards or the occults have limited many potentially great destinies. That is why in most villages as soon as a young man graduates from school and tries to become somebody useful in life, his life would be cut short suddenly. Some communities have not produced any meaningful or prominent person because of demonic embargoes or limitations placed on such communities; everyone is confined in poverty and rendered miserable.
But the good news is that the power of God is strong enough to tame the recklessness of the kingdom of darkness in limiting God’s children. This is because right from creation, God designed His children to exist in perpetual dominion, victory and triumph. (Genesis 1:28). Thus, God is a specialist in liberating His people from the limitations of life – be it financial, marital, career, family or spiritual limitation.
In addition to the power of God, your mentality is also crucial to your freedom from satanic embargoes and limitations. You need to have the correct mentality to attain liberty from captivity. To rise above where you are, you must think above where you are. Your mentality affects your reality. For example, as long as the children of Israel could not forget their experience in Egypt, they remained confined in the wilderness. (Numbers 11:5)
