This is no re-run. We’re looking at the same passage again: “…a time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them…” (Ecclesiastes 3:5, NIV).
Yesterday we looked at gathering stones. Hopefully we all did a bit of self-evaluation to be certain we haven’t tried to stretch the boundaries God’s teachings have put in place for His children’s well-being. God-made boundaries are not to be moved; to try to do so is to put yourself and those around you in a precarious position.
But what about manmade boundaries? Do you feel CONFINED or CONTENT? If you answered CONFINED, could be that you have allowed manmade boundaries to put a stranglehold Heavenly Father will work through you to do incredible things!
So what are these manmade boundaries I’m referring to? “I’m not smart enough.” “Meeting new people on your joy, your peace and your potential.
Philippians 4:13 clearly tells us that we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens” us (NIV). What are you NOT capable of doing? Nothing – if what you’re doing is God’s perfect will for your life. When you’re seeking after the things of God, your makes me nervous.” Manmade boundaries can be summed up quite easily in one verse, Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood” (KJV).
Believer, who wants you to live in less than victory? Who wants you to feel incapable, defeated, unworthy? What one force is capable of deceiving you into believing God’s boundaries are constricting your life? Satan alone desires for you to feel stifled, suffocated, by the boundaries of God’s will. Don’t buy what that liar is selling! It’s time to rebuke him boldly in the name of Jesus and get those phony boundaries out of your life!
Child of God, you are worthy. You are loved. You are precious in the sight of your Father. Jesus paid your sin-debt and covered you in His blood. Because of this, your Father sees you as spotless – a pure and holy messenger of His wonderful Good News.
So, you ready to scatter those false boundaries? Claim your victory today and experience the freedom of Kingdom living.
