WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS?

*WHAT ARE YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS?*
1 Sam 18: 32 *And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Determination forces failure to be a success.
Limiting belief is a state where a person is unable to achieve greatness because the person believes he/she can not be successful.
Limiting beliefs, restrict, restrain, and prevent.
A person can be limited by the things he/she believes. So also he/she can be motivated by the things he/she believes.
Some examples of limiting beliefs are;
First, a person could believe he/she is not smart enough or not good enough. This is a lack of self ego. To have self ego is not necessarily pride as long as you are prideful in the Lord, 1 Cor 15:11.
Many people do not know who they are. They just can not stand on their own, and neither could they take up responsibilities or stand for something. They may not have a mind of their own.
There is a common saying that goes that "if you do not stand for something, you will fall for anything."
A major truth in life is that a person can not be useful or profitable in an office he/she does not appreciate.
Second is the limiting belief that success is only meant for some people, not everyone.
Some people believe that if they did not have a privileged beginning, they could not succeed in life.
Some people run themselves down before people run them down.
David showed us that determination can force failure to be a success.
King Saul and Israel were afraid to face Goliath for forty days. Every one of them was afraid and had deemed themselves a failure for forty days until David summoned courage to face Goliath.
There are three ways, out of some other notable ways through which we can overcome our limiting beliefs.
First, the determination and confidence to overcome.
David knew himself as a shepherd boy. As rough as the job may be, he found fulfillment in it.
It even affected his appearance before Samuel, his siblings, and Jesse, his father.
...says David *"Now he was ruddy,...."*, 1 Sam 16:12.
Goliath said *"...he was but a youth, and ruddy,..."*, 1 Sam 17:42.
This did not affect his inner confidence and beauty.
It did not limit him as being any lesser than others.
His experience as a sheperd boy gave him the determination that if he could overcome the bear, he could overcome Goliath, 1 Sam 18:37
Second, King Saul and the Israelites might have been dreaming of success over Goliath, but David showed he could achieve great success while others are still dreaming of their successes, ref Prov 10:5.
What are your limiting beliefs?
Do not limit yourself by beliefs that limit you?
You are a potential for greatness. Just try it and see!
People who succeed do not get discouraged by their past failures. They learn from them.
*Call to Word action.*
You limit God when you limit yourself.
Unbelief is a limiting belief.
Matt 13:58 *And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.*
*The Christian clarion duty*
Fear can be a dominant factor that majorly limits belief.
You must divorce fear of failure.
Lord, may l not limit myself. Help me that l do not limit You. Strengten my inner being in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day.
God bless you.
