Mark 9:23 (NIV) ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
It is almost as presumptuous to think you can do nothing as to think you can do everything. In other words, be honest about your limitations, but don’t make them more than they are, or use them as an excuse to keep you from being a productive person. In my recent experiences with people, I notice more excuses from people concerning the things they need to be doing for their lives in God!
Joni Erikson Tada embodies this truth well. Paralyzed below the neck as a result of a diving accident, she has ministered to millions through her speaking, singing, and painting (she holds a paintbrush in her mouth!) What an inspiration she is!
Helen Keller who also embodied this truth expressed such an attitude in this beautiful statement: ‘I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.’
I understand limitations we all have them, but I also understand excuses when I hear them. I sincerely believe some things people are calling limitations are really excuses for them coming out of their personal, professional, and purposeful comfort zones in life. Only you know the truth, what are you making excuses about in your life? Let today’s message push you into your purpose, “No more excuses”
I pray the Lord will use today’s message to move you out of a place of excuses and into a place where there are no limits to what our God can do through you in this season of your life. Today’s reading in the gospel of Mark says it all “Everything is possible for one who in believes”. Have a Supernatural day in the Lord today!
In His Love,
