Limitations

An old Chinese proverb says, “Limitations are but the boundaries we place in our minds.”

We see this in the spies sent into Canaan that delivered a bad report to the people of Israel. Their claim indicates the limitation in their thinking. They saw themselves as grasshoppers.

They could not see themselves conquering the land, nor God doing so through them.

Leaders today are often held back, not because they lack the ability, but because they do not see themselves as able to accomplish the task.

Stop considering who you are not. Start thinking about who God is and what He can do through you if you allow Him to do so.

Think BIG

What could happen if leaders knew how to think big? The passion that drives greatness, especially from a spiritual perspective, must be nothing short of global.

Do we think that God will not do something because we are convinced we can’t do it?

The “grasshopper syndrome” of the spies in Numbers 13-14 orchestrates our own defeat. The problem was not how the Israelites appeared in the eyes of the giants that lived in Canaan. The problem was in how they saw themselves––grasshoppers in their own sight.

Leaders must not fall prey to this mindset. There must be a passion that is driven by and for greatness.
