109. Who Told You That?

who told you that you were naked a cup full of hope podcast

Is it impossible for you to have children? Are you always going to suffer with anxiety and fear? Do you feel like you are never going to find a spouse? Will you always have to deal with your miserable diagnosis? My question for you is “Who Told You That?”
 
In Genesis 3:11, God asks Adam, “Who told you that you were naked?” and I am asking you the same question today. Who told you that you would never have kids? Who told you that you will never find a spouse? Did our good Father really speak that over you? If you are facing the impossible or have made agreements with your crummy circumstances, this is the episode for you. Tune into episode 109 on any podcast app!

How We Speak Matters

  • It’s time to stop limiting God with our words and it’s time to start decreeing life.

Unbelief

  • Invite the Holy Spirit in to help you and show you the places of your heart that have hardened themselves to Him.
  • God has good plans for you, but He can’t do it if your life is laced with unbelief.

Are You Limiting God with Your Actions?

  • Do we think that any of that is pleasing to the Lord?
  • If we have not received healing from our past, chances are we are projecting that onto our future.
  • The Bible commands us to not dwell on the past.
  • God can’t do something new if you are too focused on the past.
  • Are some of the statements you have declared out been because of something that happened in the past?

  • Do you realize that what you pray reflects what you believe about God?
  • If you are praying small prayers it’s because you don’t believe God is capable of doing the impossible.
  • Are your prayers filled with complaining and grumbling that is limiting God?

  • What would happen if you started using God’s Word to declare it and speak life over your situation?

It’s Time to Stop Limiting God

  • The reason we do not see as miracles today is because we are limiting God.
  • There is a mandate on your life to do greater things that He did.
  • The Bible tells us to heal the sick, raise the dead and cast out demons.
  • There is so much more for your life. God has such good plans for you but you’re gonna have to partner up with Him.

  • We need to filter our thoughts and words through the lens of understanding the Father’s heart toward us.
  • God can turn around any situation, but He won’t do it if you’ve closed the door.
  • What have you given up on? How have you limited God? Are the things that you are saying, thinking and believing actually from God?
