God is efficient. He gets maximum work out of our limitations, and then He moves us on: the prison sentence is over. When God finishes using your limitations, your release will come. Even the fact that God has you reading this is an indication that your change is at hand.
We’re not having this conversation just to keep you satisfied with the past, to keep you living in the past, or to cause you to limit your understanding of life to the past. We’re having this conversation because the past was critical and necessary to bring you to today so that God could bring you out of limitations.
When we believe God, we can walk with Him, learn to love Him, let down our guard with Him, and depend on Him—we can become intimate with One whom we expect to come through. The problem is we give up on God too easily. Expectancies are a place of trust, and trust is the basis of friendship. To protect our hearts from frustration in difficult times, we often lower our expectations of God. We don’t want to suffer any more disappointment, and we fear that, if we dare to hope for change, we are setting ourselves up to be hurt. So, what do we do? We shut down hope. We shut down our dreams. We shut down our expectations. We tell ourselves not to believe that God can be God.
But never stop believing that God can be God! The people who follow you need you to remain hopeful, to keep believing, and to remind them of the unfathomable power of our Friend in seasons of limitation!
