Daily Devotional – 3/9/18 “Two choices!”

God can give you an abundant blessing and it still will not grant you abundance if your mindset is limited. Think about this … God wants to stretch you, in every area of your life and what you’ve been praying for, finally shows up. The career you’ve been dreaming of which can give you the house, car and a few dollars in the bank but it’s in another state. The book idea that can soar you beyond your wildest imagination but it’s not what you’re used to writing about. The lead pastor position but it’s a church that is smaller than you pictured. A car but it’s not the model you pinned to your vision board. The spouse but they don’t fit the requirements on your list. The promotion but it’s not the department you wanted. The healing but it can only happen going a route you hadn’t planned on taking. And now you’re still stuck because the thoughts, in your mind, made you believe it was outside of your limits. What do you do now? Well you have two options.

Number one: You can hush and continue to bust your butt in that dead-end job. You can hush and continue to sleep in the room you grew up in at your parent’s house. You can hush and keep accepting the minimum because that’s what your mind has made you believe you’re worth. You can hush and keep stopping at the limit OR Number two: You can take the limits off. You can stop placing a limit on what you think you’re worth. You can act like the millionaire until your net worth matches your mindset. You can walk like the promotion until it reflects beside your name. You can walk like you’re healed until healing comes forth. You can act like your 2002 Nissan is a Benz until it’s parked in the garage. You can act like you are worthy of being a spouse until someone changes your last name. You can walk in the mega until it manifest itself. Baby, I may not be preaching to hundreds, down in Hollywood, MS but I act like I am. I may not have thousands in the bank but I act like I do. I may not walk in hundred-dollar shoes or dress in designer but I act like I do. You might now know my name when I walk in but I act like you do. Why? Because I’ve taken the limits off. I stopped praying for God to bless me with the amount of my monthly mortgage, I asked God to pay it off and then some. I stopped asking God for an amount to sustain me, just this week, God I need you to make me prosperous for the rest of my life. God’s word says in John 14:13, “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” So why are you putting a limit on your limitless God?
