Look For God In Our Limits

Our limits may well be the last place we look for God.We want to conquer limits, plan around limits, deny limits, fight limits, and break through limits. In standard leadership practice,we might even consider it a mark of courage or stepping out in faith to rebel against limits. But when we fail to look for God in our limits, we often bypass Him. New Life, like every Church, is constrained by limits. Our buildings, our under-resourced neighborhoods, and our humble people, are just a few. But if I look for God in these limitations, instead of trying to get around them, I began to see something different. Our very limitations become our greatest means of introducing others to Jesus. Remember the words of the Apostle Paul? “God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness,” not in our strengths (2 Corinthians 12:9).
