Isaiah 54:1-2 (KJV)
1 Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst does not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;
3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
When we talk about limitations, we talk about a barrier preventing you from being what you are supposed to be. Certain things in your life, family and career are making you not get the best.
Limitations have three major intentions
1. To stop progress
2. Too slow movement
3. To prevent you from getting to your goal
One major limitation of man is financial limitations, money limitation. God’s intentions concerning our finances is that He wants us to be above financial limitation, Psalms 35:27, 2 Corinthians 9:6.
God’s kingdom runs by principles, He has done everything but for us to access it, we have a role (part) to play. Principles are laws, they are universal truths. Most times people don’t know that prayer is good but prayer is not the answer to everything, we have principles placed by God to follow that will bring solutions.
When it relates to your finances, to rise above financial limitations, you also need to follow principles. Until u follow principles wholeheartedly, you will not see a change.
2 Corinthians 8:9, when a man gets born again what God gives you is riches, but it needs to be activated, so being born again puts you on the pedestal to be above any financial embarrassment. So, you are prospering financially because you are born again, Jesus took your poverty and gave you riches. Poverty is not a lack of money; it is a spirit.
The purpose why God wants you to have resources
- For you to be comfortable
- To help others
- To advance the kingdom
Principles to follow in other to break out of financial limitations
