Have you noticed how God has created our bodies as perfect machines with such a complexity of functions, self-healing devices, self-renewing cells, etc?
However there is a particular limitation to human vision in that it is impossible for us to look in two different places, at the same time, in our range of 95 degrees.
Spiritually speaking, the same applies. We cannot focus on two different things at the same time. We will end up concentrating on one or the other.
That said, we cannot have a great vision for the future if the present is occupying most of the frame.
We are not able to invest our thoughts, commitment and efforts to conquer things far bigger than what we face, if, at the same time, the image of our insecurities, complexes and shortcomings looms larger before our eyes.
Do you need a breakthrough in your career? You have been praying about it, prepared your CV, searched on the internet and listed all the big companies in the market related to your job position. Great initiative!
But now there is an image at the back of your mind casting a shadow over your actions … who you are.
You do not have the required appearance, you do not have the necessary qualifications, you do not have a very successful job history or description and this image appears even greater than what you want to achieve.
The truth is that while you dwell on your past experiences, your shortcomings, your inabilities, your weaknesses, you will not be able to move towards your conquest.
You will feel like you want a change but you will not be able to act on that change because you are enslaved by your mindset.
Who you are shines brighter than who you can become. Right there, all your plans are doomed to failure.
You focus your purpose on faith, you feel a spirit of revolt about your situation, you sacrifice, but you don’t believe in who you are.
We cannot disregard the fact that we all have shortcomings. Yes, we are human beings, but God has equipped us with faith to understand that when we cannot, the One who is in us can accomplish all things!
Do not limit God’s vision for your life to your own range. His is unlimited -- yours is only 95 degrees.
