Stay Free From Limitations by Pastor Danquah

What a powerful night of the Holy Spirit as many people were set free from limitations. Pastor Danquah will be at Living Word Chapel, 1555 Route 2A, West Hurley New York 12491 phone: 845-338-9305 two more nights – Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:00. Come and join us for an anointed time of worship, praise, teaching, and blessings. Tomorrow Pastor Danquah is going to speak on getting free of worry and fear. I plan to come expecting a miracle, for fear and worry are two areas I am still working on in my life.

Tonight Pastor Danquah brought us to John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The highest desire of God when we are saved is that we are saved indeed. Then He wants us to be free indeed. When we know the truth. The truth shall make us free.

ARE WE FREE INDEED? We may be born again, heavenly bound, tongue speaking, and still not be free indeed. God is wanting to set us free from limitations.  What is a limitation?

A limitation is an intangible barrier. You can’t touch it, can’t see it. It is not material.  Limitations intimidate our imagination, paralyzes our thinking and causes us to accept our current state as the apex of what is possible for us to do. It is demonic.

Too many Christians are under bondage. We can speak in tongues, dress nicely, be on the worship team, sing, be an elder, be in the choir, be a pastor or a deacon, or in leadership and still be limited. The spirit of limitation hides out and is hard to spot at times. But God wants us to be free indeed.

We can be born again and still be poor, struggling, and under bondage.

It is not God’s will for us to stay were we are, accepting limitations.  Don’t put your life on cruise control, going only 40 mph when God can take you further, faster.

Amos 6:1a Woe to you who are at ease in Zion,

When God blesses you it is not only for you personally, but God wants to use you and the blessing to reach out to others so you become a channel of blessing. Limitations cause us not to reach the target and the goal God has set for you.  God wants us to grow higher than we are and shake off the spirit of limitation. The devil wants to destroy our destiny.

God wants us to change, to cause our life to bless and prosper. We are a Covenant Child of God and we are not living in the freedom that the Covenant provides for us.

Luke 13:10-13 Now He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bent over and could in no way raiseherself up. But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and said to her, “Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity.” And He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.

This woman was in a predicament. She was a covenant child of God, a Jewish woman. She was in covenant with God but still had the limitation that bent her over. She went to the Temple and was worshipping, even with her limitation. She was bowed down, and could not raise herself up. Something was pushing her down, forces making her bow.

We can be limited spiritually, demon bound, crooked spiritually. This woman suffered for 18 years. Our limitations can be momentary, or last for weeks or months or years. The enemy draws a line in our life and then tells us we can’t step over the line. Limitations push us back. The devil tells us this is as far as you can go. He paralyzes our thinking, shuts off our creativity, and tells us we are too old, too young, too whatever that prevents us from being able to do what God wants us to do.

Abraham was 70 years old when he was called. Moses was 80. How old are you?

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD EXCEPT THE LIMITATIONS THAT YOU PLACE ON YOURSELF.

This woman in the Temple was bent and twisted, her beauty was gone for she was knotted up and her spine was crooked.

Jesus declared in Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

The anointing is present for us to be free indeed. Free from the spirit of infirmity, free from poverty, cancer, drugs, marriage problems, or any problem that is limiting you. Whatever the problem it stems from a spirit of limitation.

Jesus SAW HER.  He saw her because she was at Temple.  Had she stayed at home or not gone to Temple she would not be in the position for Jesus to see her. If we stay home, don’t go to church we are not in a position to receive our freedom from limitation.

Does it have to only be at church? No. Wherever God’s children gather, a restaurant, over lunch, in a home, God is there and He shows up.

Jesus called her. He is calling us to set us free.

We need to identify the limitations in our lives and ask God to free us from what is shutting down our creative process.

God knows our end from our beginning. He created us and knows us from before we were born. The Savior is here and we can see miracles in our lives from whatever is oppressing us. We can be free from every bondage and limitation.

The woman was loosed from her bondage. The woman was worshipping at the Temple. It was not a special Holy Ghost meeting, or a healing service. She was just worshipping God. Jesus did not pull out oil and anoint her, or do anything spectacular. He spoke to her. “Woman thou art loosed.” And she was healed. We don’t need a special ceremony, a special anointing, or a touch from a person to bring about our healing. Just believe God and that He wants to free us from our limitations.  The oil is a touch point for the anointing, but it is not necessary to transfer the anointing.

Pastor Danquah spoke freedom from limitations on marriages. Pastor Don Moore and Cynthia have been married 40 years, and Pastor Danquah has been married 26 years. The devil is trying to tear apart families and marriages, and God is seeking to restore them.

When Jesus spoke to the woman, IMMEDIATELY she was loosed. God wants to loose us from our bondages.

He wants to loose people from an addiction to pornography. 65% of pastors look at porn, as do 85% of men. Even women are addicted to porn.

God is a God of miracles and He will set people free. Some people can’t spend time with God, they are limited. They can’t even pray 10 minutes, but God wants to free us so we are able to spend the time necessary with Him.

We then stood and prayed, praising God and asking for freedom from our limitations. Pastor Danquah ministered to the people present who needed release from limitations, then we worshipped God. What a blessed evening. I am excited to see how God moves tomorrow.  See you there.

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
