WHAT’S KEEPING YOU IN THE JAR?

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE HEART OF THE PASTOR!

“They...limited the Holy One of Israel.” Psalms 78:41

Researchers conducted an experiment in which frogs were placed in separate glass jars covered with breathable lids to prevent them from escaping. At first the frogs kept jumping, trying to escape, but each time they hit their heads on the lid. After thirty days of doing this, something amazing happened. When the lids were removed from the jars, the frogs never jumped out even though they could easily have done so. Why? Because they had formed a belief system that the top of the jar was as high as they could go.  You see church, their limited belief system kept them trapped in the jar!

The Israelites did that too. Repeatedly, the children of Israel limited the mighty hand of God to deliver them and bring them out of their wilderness experience. Are you holding on to limited belief systems, even though they are no longer true and are sabotaging your future? When you allow the belief that you are too young or too old, that’s a limited belief system. When you think that because you are a woman or of the wrong nationality, that’s a limited belief system. When you think that not having enough education, right connections or enough talent, that’s a limited belief system. When you think you don’t deserve something or someone because of past failures, that’s a limited belief system.

By the authority of the Holy Spirit of All Mighty God, I declare and decree that your limited belief system days are a thing of the past. Get rid of your limited belief systems! Not only will God give you success, He will give you the skill and strength to handle it. For I can still hear Paul proclaiming, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Phil. 4:13.
