Pushed beyond your limits

By Pastor Alphonze Owino

Human history is a testament to the indomitable spirit that drives individuals to push beyond perceived limitations. From scientific breakthroughs to personal triumphs, the journey of overcoming limitations is woven into the fabric of our existence. Whether it’s conquering physical barriers, defying societal norms, or transcending mental constraints, the human capacity for growth knows no bounds.

It’s only when you’re pushed to your limits that you expand your horizons. It is intense contrary winds that enable an eagle to mount up to great heights and ascend. Some wither in the face of danger and find themselves paralyzed from taking any effective action in favor of their progress. Learn to transform your helplessness into power by facing down its falsehoods and doing exactly the opposite of what it tells you.

Amran and Jochebed’s (Moses’ parents) story is one  example of defiance against fear and faith in the face of oppression. Living in the midst of Pharaoh’s decree to kill all male Hebrew infants, they defied the tyrannical order and chose to  stand with God’s command to be productive and preserve life rather than succumb to fear. They stretched themselves beyond their limits and produced and preserved a great deliverer of Israel.

The further back the arrow and bow is stretched, the further it will fly when released.

When you transcend your limitations with the help of God’s grace, the impact extends far beyond your personal sphere. Your story will  inspire others to believe in the possibility of overcoming obstacles and pursuing their dreams.
