TOPIC: LOOK BEYOND YOUR LIMITATIONS
TEXT: Colossians 4:3 “Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds…”
When Paul wrote this verse, he was in chains in prison. He was arrested for preaching the gospel. Everything in his surroundings shouted “limitations.” Instead of looking at his surroundings, Paul kept his eyes on the limitless God. He kept looking for the open door of opportunity that God would have for him next.
No matter the “chains” you may feel like you are in today, remember, we serve a God who’s in the business of continuously setting people free since He has shed His blood for us on the cross. He has also equipped you with His power – Do you know you carry unlimited potentials through redemption? When doors seem closed all around you, when your surroundings look limited, when you feel like you can’t make it again, remember, God is still at work. He’s promised to walk with you all the days of your life and never ever to leave nor forsake you and I. Keep your hopes up. Keep expecting. Keep believing. Like Paul, pray for those opportunities to be opened to you! Beloved there is light at the end of the tunnel – look up and see Jesus standing there! The light of Christ has brought the promise of deliverance for you. Ask God to penetrate your tunnel of darkness with His glorious light. Glory be to God!
