Living Life Without Limits

Joseph LephiewLiving Life Without Limits, Series, Sermons

SERMON NOTES

Revelation: We have a limitless God and Gospel, but we live a limited life. We are called Believers yet many of the things we have believed rarely manifests itself with any degree of consistency.

Question to ask is, How do we break the limitation off our lives? How do I get from where I am to where I want to be.

Here is the problem: if the blueprint of your thinking is not set for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know and nothing you do will make any difference.

We learn how to change our thinking by renewing your mind, establishing your heart and transforming your personal belief system.

We go to church, love God with all our heart yet still something is missing. What is missing is creating Heart Belief. We have been trying to just change our mind without a heart change.

“I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”
JOHN 10:10b

Life in the Greek is Zoe which means Life in the fullest or the God kind of life. The word abundance means superabundant in quality, superior in quality, excess, surplus, extreme, too much.

GOD WANTS YOU AND I TO HAVE A LIFE THAT IS TOO MUCH. TOO MUCH LOVE, TOO MUCH JOY, TOO MUCH PURPOSE, TOO MUCH ANOINTING, TOO MUCH MONEY, TOO MUCH ANOINTING.

We say we believe all these different areas yet we do not see the results to back up our beliefs.

GOD’S PLAN IS FOR YOU AND I TO LIVE AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE. GODS WILL IS FOR YOU AND I OUR LIFE TO BE AMAZING, REMARKABLE, UNIMAGINABLE, BEYOND LIMITS. LIFE IS LIKE A RACE.

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who by faith have testified to the truth of God’s absolute faithfulness], stripping off every unnecessary weight and the sin which so easily and cleverly entangles us, let us run with endurance and active persistence the race that is set before us,”
HEBREWS 12:1 AMP

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw offeverything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,”
Hebrews 12:1 NIV

We are to throw off everything that hinders weights and sins entangles us, RUN OUR RACE.Get strong guy and challenge him to race. Get him to say how he thinks he can win. But then have a heavy guy get on his back. Then get two guys to hold his legs and then race.

LIFE IS LIKE A RACE. Getting to the finish line is Abundant Life. Yet, there are so many hinderances, weights that we get stuck and stagnated in life and we stop.

What is a Hinderance? A non-sinful besetting circumstance or attitude. That includes fear, anger, discouragement, depression, bad information, worry, anxiety, bad relationships, or ignorance. Including double-mindedness or the biggest one of all—SUBCONSCIOUS SELF-LIMITING BELIEFS. HERE I AM SPEAKING OF DELIBERATE ACTIONS.

There is only one sin-UNBELIEF. The rest of what we call sin is the manifestation of unbelief. SIN in the Greek is Harmartia. It really means to miss the mark of the prize. The biggest problem among series believers is the INABILITY TO CHANGE. SEE PEOPLE GET SAVED GET BLESSED AND THEN STOP COMING. GET FREE ONLY TO FIND THEMSELVES BACK IN BONDAGE. UP AND DOWN AND ALL AROUND ONLY TO END UP AT THE SAME PLACE YEAR AFTER YEAR.

STUCK, STUCK, STUCK. Your outside world is a direct reflection of your inward world. When people go to church or motivational event less than 10% of people ever apply what they hear. You are where you are because of the decisions you have made up to this point. Your outside life will directly correspond to your inside life.

Many people are not honest with themselves. No victim. The key is transforming your inside world to manifest a new outward world. You transform your inside world is to renew your mind, establish your heart and transform your personal belief system.

THE 6 KINGDOM LAWS OF SUCCESS AND THE PROCESS OF FAITH. These 6 laws are the key to transforming your inside world to manifest God’s Kingdom to your outside world.

1.THE LAW OF CAPACITY: (Matt. 25:14-25) You can only receive from God in direct correlation to his ability to receive from God. Example: God is 100 gallons of water, you are tiny soppy cup. God pours but you only can contain what you can contain.

2.THE LAW OF CONTROL: (Gen. 1:26) We are positive in life to the dimension that we are in control of our lives. Principle of Spiritual Authority. The problem is most people feel out of control in their lives.

3.THE LAW OF EXPECTATION: (Heb. 11:1) What you expect in your heart with conviction becomes self-fulfilling prophecy. What we do or do not do is the result of what we expect the outcome to be.

4.THE LAW OF BELIEF: (HEB. 11:1) What you believe in your heart with confidence becomes your reality. We manifest what we believe, abundance or lack.

5.THE LAW OF ATTRACTION: (Matt. 16:18-19) You attract to yourself people, ideas, and resources according to your most dominant thoughts. This law causes what is potential to become reality.

6.THE LAW OF CORRESPONDENCE: (Rom. 12:2) “And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].” This is the dominant law. Your outside world corresponds directly to your inside world. All your productive manifestations in your life are the product of your inner world, which is the result of a renewed mind, an established heart and a transformed personal belief system.

GOD’S LAWS REFLECTED IN NATURAL LAWS

“For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense.”
ROMANS 1:20

God’s laws are reflected in natural laws. Nature’s laws are simple reflected in God’s eternal laws. We can see this in four examples from the Laws of Physics.

LAWS OF PHYSICS

1.THE LAW OF ENTROPY: A basic law that says things left unattended tend toward chaos. Most people have serious issues but many people just ignore them hoping they just go away. Yard work does not go away if you ignore it. Your health does not get better if you ignore it. Your car won’t fix itself if you ignore it. Your SELF-LIMITING BELIEFS don’t disappear by themselves. Example: Negative beliefs if left often sabotage us and leave our lives in mediocrity or worse, total chaos.

2.THE LAW OF CAUSE AND EFFECT: This law states everything happens for a reason. Nature is Neutral. God honors FAITH whenever and wherever He finds it. YOU CAN BE RADICALLY TRANSFORMED BY HIS LAWS AND EXPERIENCE A NEW LEVEL OF LIVING.

3.THE LAW OF HYSTERESIS: Hysteresis is the tendency of material to revert back to its original shape once the pressure changing it is removed. They call this SELF-LIMITING BELIEFS. Example: when we hear a new truth, we change for a season, but when the pressures of the word is gone, we revert back to our old lifestyle. I see people run to God, cry out for healing, help, finances, love, they get whatever they desired. They commit and then when the pressure is gone they slowly slide back to old lifestyles. God intended not temporary fixes but real TRANSFORMATION FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

4.THE LAW OF MOTION: states anything that is in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an opposite and equal force. Example: there are certain negative traits that are in motion, and will continue to be, unless they are acted upon by an opposite force. ALL CHANGE FOR GOOD MUST BE INTENTIONAL. YOU MUST COOPERATE WITH TRUTH, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND TARGET CERTAIN BELIEFS.

YOU MUST IDENTIFY SELF-LIMITING BELIEFS, DISASSOCIATE, DISCONNECT AND SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM THEM AND APPLY THE ANTIDOTE (CURE) OF NEW TRUTH.

NEW TRUTH: AS YOU CREATE NEW EMPOWERING BELIEFS, YOUR LIFE WILL JUMP TO A NEW LEVEL. REMEMBER THE LAW OF CAPACITY, YOU MUST BECOME A LARGER VESSEL IN TERMS OF CAPACITY TO CARRY MORE OF GODS TRUTH IN OUR BELIFS.

4 KINDS OF PEOPLE

DRIFTERS: THEY GO WITH THE FLOW. 50% OF ALL PEOPLE.

PURSUERS: ARE PEOPLE WHO PURSUE A DREAM UNTIL THEY MEET AN OBSTACLE OR CHALLENGE AND THEN THEY BACK UP AND BACK OFF. 25% OF PEOPLE THESE TWO GROUPS MAKE UP 75% OF PEOPLE.

ACHIEVERS ARE PEOPLE WHO SET GOALS AND ACHIEVE SOMEOF THEM, BUT RARELY ACHIEVE SIGNIFICANT OR EXTRAORDINARY DREAMS. 24.99% ARE HERE.

SUPER-ACHIEVERS ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ACQUIRED THEIR MASTER SKILLS TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN VIRTUALLY EVERY VENUE OF THER LIVES. THEY DO THE EXTRAORDINARY. EXTRA HIGHER THAN ORDINARY. .01% OF PEOPLE.

I HAVE COME THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY. HE HAS COME SO THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE TO DO THE EXTRAORDINARY.
JOHN 10:10

“For though we walk in the flesh [as mortal men], we are not carrying on our [spiritual] warfare according to the flesh and using the weapons of man. The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”
2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-4 AMP

Term called “Learned Helplessness.” This is a term they speak of people who feel helpless to change their circumstances. They figure about 80% of people are stuck here.

Paul calls this a STRONGHOLD.

STRONGHOLD: is when you feel powerless to change something in and about your life though it is contrary to the will of God. This is a LIE FROM THE LIER. WHEN YOU BELIEVE THE LIER YOU EMPOWR THE LIE. IT IS LIKE QUICK SAND.
