Our God is Limitless

Our God is Limitless! He stays matter how many try to get rid of Him,  thank you Jesus.
Our God is Limitless! He stays matter how many try to get rid of Him, thank you Jesus.

Thankful for a Lmitless God

Our God is limitless, so why does our society appear to accept the lie that He is not! Many struggle to understand how a nation founded on hope and religious freedom could create an environment that prohibits that.

Fear permeates as they remove external signs of God from our schools and communities. But, no one can silence the omnipotent force that dwells inside those who seek a life of faithfulness.

God shows His grace and mercy with great fervency in the broken places. His strength invades the darkness as He pours into our cracks filling them with light and the hope of His promises.

Evil creates a crevice for separation, yet in desperation, separation fades as our awesome God uses the spirit of unity. How futile the insignificant attempts to block His influence in our environment, as our God is, limitless!

The need for guidance is continuous, for on a course of aimless meandering one can slip into hopelessness. Uncorrected, this wave of smugness allows one to succumb to negativity and the world of opposing thought gains velocity. However, God doesn’t change His powerful and unfailing love! Though society works overtime in its attempts to remove acts to glorify Him.

Our God is stronger as He allows the brokenness for a revival of discipleship and communal fellowship desirous of growth. The end goal of our unity union in God's grace is to strengthen the servant believer’s heart for seeking and sharing Him as the priority.

Armored by the Holy Spirit one finds encouragement to go among the pestilence of sin and spread His love. This discipleship of light in the darkness is purposeful to seek the lost with a hope that they too will desire a relationship with their Father.

In the darkness, a brokenness of lies takes root with an immense effort to confuse by eradicating truth. This disillusionment or lack of conduct runs as an undertow fixated on dismantling our moral compass as the societal norm appears to make God irrelevant.

When around the pull of negative habit we risk evolving into robots of conformity. Without seeking positive obedience to God’s plan for our life an unfortunate chaos occurs. Ideas develop into selfish pursuits, and morality takes a backseat.

People want to love! If given a chance, most will pick good over evil, but positive choices evade as human nature bases a decision on environmental conditioning. These reactions are due to the altered complacency within the psyche. A twisted sense of reality forces actions where the conclusion limits options and hides the potential of choosing the purposeful choice of self-control.

Humankind carries the inherent want for understanding, appreciation for their purpose, and the ability to love with compassion. These qualities are desires of human nature. But the truth is we are not victims of circumstance when we have faith in a limitless God.

Faith is the key to hope. The love we seek is available to everyone! The blueprint is available for anyone to build, found within His precious word. We simply need to use it!

If one believes in the promises of God's power to intervene as our loving Father, we will then experience His guidance to move us with purposeful direction. People need God's teaching as human nature tends to put what makes them loved and appreciated before the refinements of His plan.

This very humanistic trait of conformity to the lies of sin is often subconscious and unintended. People seek the affirmation to know they're doing well. To comfort themselves, they have a tendency to judge. They confirm self by rejecting others.

Mass media blurs the lines of truth, making it difficult to see straight. A division is the root of separation between people. Denying the call to love allows greater slippage into deception creating a perception that our magnificent God has limits and that is untrue!

We are Living Shell-Shocked

Often cultures stand shell-shocked in disbelief while glaring at the bloodstains on the hands of others. This focus on the sins of others allows a subconscious thought to become the breeding ground for hatred and division. We must do more than gossip and point fingers, rather work together to build unity in understanding and forgiveness. We must plant seeds of restoration and water them.

Begin with selfless compassion, perform random acts of kindness, and stop relying on people to be perfect. Fact is, they are no more perfect than your imperfect self, the one you see in the mirror each morning. We are all in need of renewal and restoration.

Concentrating on ourselves is not where our focus should be, but mass materialism seeks to sway our devotion to selfless serving. We then fall victim to a self-serving societal way of thinking, though often subconscious, we join the ranks of complacency.

Within the thistle of lies that entangle we pursue pure examples of unconditional love. We have the purest example in Jesus Christ. His hands covered in stain from the sins of all. Though He made this punishing sacrifice, He continues to love us regardless of flaw and imperfection and this is what He calls us to do.

He says, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34)

Why do we seek solace in any other verse? God loves us as if to disregard our negative thoughts, sinning nature, and still, we judge our brothers and sisters as opposed to correcting ourselves. He sees the blood on our hands, and yet washes it away, healing the wake of our sin.
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." (Ezekiel 36:26)

Regardless of where you are today, there may be a spot in your heart that needs softening. Ask for repair in the area you need it most, allowing God to fill your heart using the tough stuff for a greater purpose as His children.

"Beloved, now we are children of God... we know that when He reveals, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." (1John 3:2)

Prepare Ye The Way of the Lord...

Prepare Ye the Way Of the Lord

Childlike Innocence Lost

It would be rare for one to look at an infant and imagine hatred, nor do we plot ways to break down these little humans. One wouldn’t think to use their weakness to gain anything or plan ways to shatter them with vile acts of violence or embarrassment unless it involves a diseased mind. Instead, there’s a common agreement to protect their innocence.

When did we lose this sense of creating a haven for one another? We are stuffing emotions within the depths of our souls fighting against the elements of ignorance in a suffocating society. How sad that people hide their true reactions to what is wrong hoping to fit in, or at least not standing out in the crowd!

Perfect harmony is difficult, near impossible in most relationships, because we are imperfect as individuals. But, no matter how bad things get people need to feel love and peace at their core. Don’t we all seek that for ourselves and aren’t we called to live by the golden rule? The steadfast rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Matt. 7:12)

The best way to find your center in peace is through faith in God as our wonderful counselor. He wants a relationship with each of us and that relationship with Him will allow guidance to right our wrongs. God is our guide to navigating our imperfect relationships and formatting the next steps to take.

"Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you." (Col. 3:13)

Since we are imperfect, my guess is we have made mistakes today. Let go and let God, try again tomorrow. If our situations are tough we can start with planting a seed and letting God water it. Start a new conversation and be open to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you, close out the noise and listen for the message to reveal His purpose.

Can't We Just Surrender?

We navigate life together if we remain still each day provides the potential to experience something new. I suppose the best decision we make is to trust God first, love when frustrated, and be open to learning from everything.

We have serious flaws and weaknesses. Walking the line with one who should want to push you off, and instead pulls you up, is how God loves us. He chooses us and keeps pulling us back to Him, and I am sorry to deflect, but I’m sure we are not always walking a straight line, yet, He is reaching down always lifting our eyes to His grace and mercy.

We mess up and we get messy, in our thoughts, words, and actions. Just one look at the media tells us that life is precious and can change in an instant for anyone. We should work together with due diligence.

To become our best selves we go to God, take time in prayer and surrender in stillness until He speaks with clarity. But, the world tells us not to mention His presence, not to love one another, be cautious.

Well, I say, “Proclaim His glory to the ends of this earth.” We need to submit to His purpose. Open to how God is working in and through us, both as individuals and together.

We are In Life Together

Desperate times require bold acts of a decision, deciding to love better within our brokenness, ignoring the spewing of distractions from a sinful world, that would tell us otherwise.

Our complacency is causing us to miss opportunities to love when broken. We need to love with the honesty and humble truth as we are all broken.

This crazy world has a way of alienating us from our purpose with lofty attitudes and attention to sin, separation seeks nothing more than our focus to be on it, this is the goal of a division.

Our beloved God is eager for our transformation by turning from sins rooted in pride, envy, and anger toward humanity this becomes our mission and our curse.

If we refuse to humble ourselves before our creator He will still send His angels to attend to those whom He made in His own image. Our sinning nature is the catalyst for demise with direct disobedience to God. Evil, works to deceive a man to create a world separated from God.

As a society are we to conform to do the dirty work of pride, greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy, sloth, these sins called deadly for a reason? How about encouraging the fruits of the spirit in one another and the consequences will be different. Unity builds while separation seeks to destroy. Believe, have faith in a building process without limits.

What is Written on Your Heart?

There is no need to pretend perfection because, in God's image we are! We should love as Christ did on the cross. When they crucified Him, Jesus said, “Forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”

I believe if Christ came today and we lay at His feet He would still say the same thing, those final words "it is finished." There is no difference in the sin of man today. Man conditions by the environment. It is how we react or respond to that environment that defines who we become. Choosing Christ to be the center of your chaos changes your outcome. He took the cross for all sinners. He is the choice for all mankind!

I don’t know how God will react or respond to any sin or sinner. However, I know we should do our best to love as He did. When facing the giants of dismissal, sadness, disappointment, wrongful acts, lies, rumor, gossip, trial, hardship… I pray we humble ourselves to our God who created all of us in His image.

I pray that He allows us to see the potential in everyone as He died for all. Yes, we are products of a spiraling world, but we are the hope and the future, the lovers of His beautiful world. A world built by a loving and awesome God and we thank Him for His sacrifice because He lives!

No one can prohibit what is in your heart! Don't live in fear rather learn to love in the limits of your brokenness because our God is limitless!

Limitless Colton Dixon

      Thanks you mel-kav, for the read and insightful comment. I see we seem to think in a similar manner on this point of prayerful need and thus we continue to pray for God's grace and Mercy to shine through His people. Broken or not it is our call to armor ourselves with the belief in His promises. I agree it is sad but we are hopeful as God wins!

      God Bless you as you stand in prayer

      God's love is definitely abundant and limitless. He has blessed me so much. His grace and blessings are available to everyone of us, yet many refuse accept Him. It saddens me that God is being taken out of schools and other social places. The world needs God now more than ever.

      Loved this article and couldn't agree more! To me, Jesus is the ultimate example of that selfless love.

      I especially loved the clip of the Muslim and Jewish guy just being friends and seeing the reaction they got.

      DearDr. CHE Sadaphal ~

      Thank you for taking the time to check out my article. I have just gone to your page and plan to go there regularly. I too was in the medical field as a Rehabilitation Therapeutics Manager and basically worked at putting people back together and re-integrating them back into sports and life after traumatic physical and cognitive injury. I loved that work but, was side tracked some years ago when I began the journey on the other side as the patient. After coming through some serious health storms and near death experiences, I too desire to share my heart and hopefully bring others to further investigate their own faith walk.I feel we have and desire a similar purpose and I look forward to more of your HUB.

      Thank you ~ peace and blessings to you ~
