This is not primarily a call to performance or to excellence. The call to ‘aim high’ is about where you are fixing your gaze. Your aim is about where you set your sights. Where are you are aiming and why?
The issue I want to address is where you are lowering your sights, where you are allowing your gaze, your aim, to be capped. Where are you allowing limitation to influence where you are setting your sights? What are your expectations and where are you adjusting them according to your experiences and your history?
My ways are unlimited. My ways are not bound by anything that could enable the enemy to restrict, constrain, or limit what is possible in and through your life. There are no chains holding me back. I am more than able to do all things in and through you, in accordance with my plans and purposes.
Today, throw off all limitation. Let’s deal with every limiting mindset so you can choose the joy of faith and belief which partners with possibility. Allow me to infuse you with expectation and the unshakable belief that “my God can do anything” … even through you!
Activation: There may be a place of disappointment or pain that God would like to heal you and free you of that has led you to a place of limitation and self protection. Spend time with Holy Spirit, allowing him to show you if, where, and why you may have allowed limitation to influence your decision making, your expectations, and your ability to engage with “God of the possible”.
For nothing will be impossible with God.Luke 1:37 (ESV)
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.Colossians 3:2 (ESV)
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”Isaiah 55:8-9 (ESV)
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.Hebrews 12:1-2 (ESV)
