Personal Causes of Limitations

Man is the greatest limiter of himself. Apart from the limitations caused by sin which of cause is the worst of all, there are other ways by which man personally, although mostly unconsciously, limits himself.

Natural or environmental factors and demonic factors are external factors of limitations; they are not as serious as the internal or personal factors. In actual fact, the external factors are only there because of the internal factors. If man revolts against the external factors, they will quickly disappear.

Some of these personal causes are:

  1. Lack of persona vision.

Every man is a product of his vision.

Pr 29:18

¶ Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. {perish: or, is made naked}

If you look into John 5:6-7

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”

7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

The man lack simple vision of change; his condition has made him to become a story teller rather than a man who is keeping hope of sound health alive.

You cannot have it if you don’t see it. No man can be better than his vision.

 

Once you are ignorant of your right and privileges in God, the devil will deny you of them.

Hosea 4:6 NKJV

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Isaiah 5:13 NKJV

Therefore my people have gone into captivity, Because they have no knowledge; Their honorable men are famished, And their multitude dried up with thirst.

 

  1. Lack of spiritual growth.

There are many things that God will not hand over to you once you remain a spiritual toddler.

Galatians 4:1 NKJV

Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,

  1. Lack of effective communication with the Holy Spirit.

Those who lack access to the mind of God will never be able to maximise profit from God.

I Corinthians 2:9-10 NKJV

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

Those who will maximize profit from God must be strongly committed to following His principles. God will not bend His rules because of anybody.

Joshua 1:8 NKJV

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Job 36:11-12 NKJV

If they obey and serve Him, They shall spend their days in prosperity, And their years in pleasures. But if they do not obey, They shall perish by the sword, And they shall die without knowledge.

  1. Parsimony:

Parsimony is the sin of closing your hands against God. That is nothing that makes the righteous suffers lack like being stingy to God.

Luke 6:38 NKJV

Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Malachi 3:8-12 NKJV

“Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts; “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the Lord of hosts.

  1. Slothfulness and lack of excellent spirit.

There are many things in life that is your responsibility to your life. God will not do those things.

Proverbs 22:29 NKJV

Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.

Romans 12:11 NKJV

not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;

  1. Demonic operations.

Many children of God are carriers of unbroken curses and evil covenants. Most of us in Africa are products of idolatry and terrible demonic activities. Because they are yet to consciously break these curses, many are suffering terrible torture in many areas of life.

II Kings 2:19 NKJV

Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.”

Joshua 6:26 NKJV

Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, “Cursed be the man before the Lord who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates.”

1Kings 16:34

34 In his days Hiel of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation with Abiram his firstborn, and with his youngest son Segub he set up its gates, according to the word of the LORD, which He had spoken through Joshua the son of Nun.

 

  1. Inability to pray through.

Everything that God does in the lives of His children is in answer to their prayers.

Psalms 91:15 NKJV

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

John 15:7 NKJV

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

If you can call on the name of the Lord, you will be delivered.

Obadiah 1:17 NKJV

“But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, And there shall be holiness; The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

  1. Inability to relate well.

Man is always the method of God to help man. Those who do not know how to handle the men that God sends to their lives well will never be able to make appreciable progress in life.

Joseph needed the bottler, David needed Jonathan, Paul needed Silas; there is also a man, upon whose shoulder you are destined to ride to the top. May you not misbehave before the man.
