As a believer, one of the first things you need to know is that there is no limit. When you have God on your side, you can break every limitation. God made sure He discomforted the enemies, made a way for us. He has given us a great grace as a His workmanship to accomplish. How do you continue to establish growth under the grace of God? There are six keys to breaking limitations.
SIX KEYS TO BREAK YOUR LIMITATIONS
Break your limitation with authority.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” Luke 10:19. Serpent and scorpions represent challenges, problem and situation in your life.
Break it with faith.
Faith simply means your total dependence on God, which means that you are able to abandon yourself on God. Many believers talk faith but don’t act in faith. “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him” Hebrew 11:6. Your faith must be alive; you must know how to talk to the devil. The battle that Jesus won for us totally changed the perspective about the devil: that he is a defeated fool. Through the blood that Jesus bled for us, He blotted out the handwriting of ordinance that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.
Break it with prayers.
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit . . .” Ephesians 6:18. As a believer, you pray from a position of victory and thanksgiving even when the situation is not palatable. When you pray, you are closely communicating with the Father.
Break it with resistance
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” James 4:7. Before you can resist the devil and he flees, you must submit to God. A believer who submits to God is empowered and given the authority to cast out demons. How do you submit yourself to God? By taking Him by His word: taking Him seriously, you work and walk with Him. A true Christian is not one who pays tithes, but one who takes appropriate action on the word of God.
As a believer, you should be able to wait upon your victory and manifestation and not to die or give up before your testimony. It doesn’t matter the kind of situation you are in, remain firm; never give in to the enemy. When you allow Satan to give you negative thoughts, you will have negative dreams (Philippians 4:6-10). When you change your thoughts, bad things will never follow you.
Break it by standing firm.”But none of these things moves me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy . . .” (Acts 20:24).
Break it with fasting.
“Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to lose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?” (Isaiah 58:6). Fasting is an effective tool for breaking satanic attack. It elevates your spirit man to commit with God all the time.
