Have you ever asked the question, “What limits God?”
Every now and then I listen to Joel Osteen. It’s not really intentional, but usually I am flipping through channels and come across his broadcast. And when this happens, many times what he is saying applies directly to something currently being experienced in my life.
This past Sunday night was no different. As Joel talked about having God’s favor IN THE MIDST of life’s storms, he uttered these words:
“God is not limited by our conditions. He is limited by our thinking.”
These words hit me like a ton of bricks! And has been echoing through my soul ever since.

Wakanda Forever: Part 9 – Mastering Your Craft
I think the core of Black Panther is about mastery: the mastery of self, one’s community and the world at large. By mastery, I am not talking about having the freedom to independently run one’s life in isolation. Erik had that freedom and we see how that ended for him.

That’s right. We are always looking forward and trying to do new things and often we do so while neglecting old things. There are things in our recent (and distant) past which we have left undone.

Fear is one of the main reasons most of us don’t move from where we are to where we need and want to be. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of the unknown. Fear of being under qualified. Fear of success. Fear of… (insert reason here.) But most of what we fear rarely happens. And if it did – with some thoughtful planning and execution – we could overcome the issue. Ultimately, overcoming our fear is about PERSPECTIVE.
Watch this short video from my G.P.S. Motivational Series which illustrates the point. Then ask yourself, “How can I change my perspective so I can get a grip on my fear?”
