Physical/Structural limitation. When they got to the place where Jesus was, the crowd blocked them, there was no way they could enter through the door but that still did not stop them. They had to dig through the clay roof. Inside the structural limitation lies cost because there is economic barrier as there will be need to repair the damaged roof. Everything was trying to stop this man from getting to Christ telling him ‘you must go back’. One of the things I found out is that today, people are losing their resilience, the ability to endure in order to get the result that only Jesus can give and they end up missing their blessings. People are no longer making extra effort, they no longer go the extra mile (as we see in this story) in order to access the presence of God and access their miracles which Jesus alone can give yet everybody wants to be extra ordinary. It is the extra things you add to the ordinary that makes you extra ordinary. A time comes in your life when you must determine that ‘my miracle must happen’ and when that time comes, you must not think of any impossibility; anything that says, No, must be crushed. Even if people tell you that you cannot use the door, you can always use the ladder. If a paralyzed man could beat all these obstacles to get to the presence of Jesus, you too can. Every physical barrier to your miracle must dissolve and disappear in the name of Jesus. Let every evil seal of limitation as a result of structural or physical obstacle dissolve and disappear in the name of Jesus.
The seal of unbelief. I believe that this is a psychological seal but a very big limitation. Unbelief is ‘how can this be? How can this happen?’ The bible says in Mark 9:23, “Jesus said unto him, if thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Meditate on this scripture. Belief is not easy. It is when the chips are down that you can measure the strength of your belief to ascertain whether you are an unbelieving believer. Nobody is free who is living in denial of Jesus because Jesus is the truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” There cannot be freedom without truth; there cannot be comprehensive success without the truth. Anytime you drop the truth, you automatically pick up the seal of Lucifer. One of the reasons why the devil takes delight in creating limitations is to get you to succumb, to make you drop what you should treasure, so it is a battle of faith. God has branded you with his special branding but the devil wants to rebrand you with and even offers money to do so. The Holy Spirit told me that there is an evil under the sun whereby people use their money to go and acquire evil seals which they celebrate. This is commonplace and it is caused by ignorance. It is so easy to collect an evil seal; what is difficult is how to destroy it. Everybody will eventually end up in the home of their owner. When the Bible says you should flee from every appearance of evil, you need to recognize that it is in your own interest to do so. “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.” Prov. 1:10).
PRAY:- Heavenly Father may Your Name be Hallowed. Thank You for putting Your seal of ownership upon me through the death, burial and resurrection of Your Son Jesus Christ. I ask You to make it impossible for any evil power to rebrand me contrary to Your perfect will for my life in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
