Don’t Be Defined by the Limits of Others

Today's Scripture

Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Psalm 119:89, NIV.

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

Most people’s thoughts were programmed by the people who raised them or by what somebody spoke over them. Maybe they were good people, doing the best they can, but their words are limiting you. As long as you believe what they said about you, their words are defining you. The key to breaking those limitations is to start meditating on what God says about you. A transformation will take place when you renew your mind. Reprogram your thinking with what God says about you. God says, “The path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter.” All through the day say, “I’m rising higher. I haven’t seen my best days. Something good is going to happen to me.”

As you meditate on His Word day in and day out, you’re breaking out past the limitations set by others. People may have spoken negative things over you, but the good news is that people don’t determine your destiny. You are not who people say you are. You are who God says you are. Don’t be defined by the limits of others. Believe God’s Word and see His victory all the days of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Father, I choose today to believe Your Word over the words of others. You are the one who defines my life. Search my heart; search my mind. Show me any areas where I need to be renewed to Your Word in Jesus’ name. Amen.
