‘All things are possible to him who believes.’ Mark  9:23 NKJV

No-limits people refuse to accept things as they are because they see them as they can be. Instead of saying, ‘It can’t be done,’ they rise up in faith and say, ‘All things are possible to him who believes.’

No-limits people have faults and failures like everybody else. The difference is, they walk by faith to the cliff’s edge knowing that one of two things will happen when they get there. Either God will put solid rock under their feet, or He will teach them to fly. In other words, they plug into God’s unlimited power supply. The author of the book of Hebrews describes no-limits people like this: ‘Who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle’ (Hebrews 11:33-34 NIV). Notice, these people started out weak, but they became strong. How? ‘Through faith.’ They possessed the kind of faith that disregards the odds, the obstacles, and the opposition, and declares, ‘I am what God says I am, I have what God says I have, and I can do what God says I can.’

The story is told of an old foreman who worked hard on the job and expected the same from his workers. One day one of them said, ‘Don’t you know Rome wasn’t built in a day?’ Smiling, he replied, ‘Aye, but I wasn’t the foreman on that job.’

Today ask God to help you rise above your fears and make you a no-limits person.
