WHAT ARE LIMITATIONS?
1. LIMITATIONS ARE NEGATIVE CONDITIONS
Exod. 8 v 28 (NKJV)
“So Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me.”
• The children of Israel, having been in Slavery for 430 years demanded for their freedom.
• King Pharaoh responded with this negative statement that he will let them go but on one terrible condition “that they will not go far away”.
• What a terrible negative condition?
• What a gruesome Limitation?
• What a Sinister restriction?
• What a negative control?
• What a satanic regulation?
• What an opposing voice?
• What an unwanted hinderance?
• What an undesired inhibition?
I pray for you that:
1. Any dark power boasting that you will not go far in life shall be disgraced in Jesus name.
2. Any strongman of darkness behind that gruesome limitation in your life shall be disgraced in Jesus name.
3. Any negative control regulating and limiting your progress is hereby broken in Jesus name.
4. Any opposing voice, any antagonizing voice, any contrary voice, sponsoring limitations against you, be silenced now in Jesus name.
5. Any restriction on your manifestation is hereby removed in Jesus name.
6. Any unwanted negative condition affecting and limiting your potentials is herby cancelled by the blood of Jesus in Jesus name.
7. All the hinderances on your destiny pathway are hereby removed in Jesus name.
Shout: I will go far in life in Jesus name. (7x)
