Have you wondered how stagnated you have been for years and desire a solution? Do you know that forces of darkness can inhibit you from making progress in life and destiny? God designed about life is that everyone makes progress at a certain stage of their life. Stagnation is never the will of God for any man; instead, it is the work of the devil. Are you searching for a way to break forth from limitation and stagnation? Then read on.
What is Limitation and Stagnation?
When someone who God has ordained to live a meaningful life and destiny has been greatly restricted, that is termed limitation. Limitation simply means to be restrained or resisted from making progress. When you have been limited continually without any slight progress, that becomes stagnation. So, stagnation is a deep-rooted spiritual limitation or problem that specific individuals have accepted as usual. Therefore, stagnation is the total absence of progress, movement, increase, and advancement. Thus, stagnation is a curse that must be broken from your life if you are currently experiencing it. To fulfill destiny, you must make progress and destroy every satanic hold down.
Stagnation of Destiny’s
It is not a surprise that several believers fail to realize that they are not making progress. This is because they stagnate, and several limitations obstruct their progress. However, God’s design for man’s destiny is progressive. For example, a baby is born into this world, and in twenty years, the baby is now an adult. The baby has simply progressed from one level to another. That is how God designs every other aspect of man – To make progress. Then why are people’s destinies stagnated? There are several reasons why believers’ destinies have been stagnated, and here are a few of them;
Every limitation that has ever occurred has its root in the spirit realm. The great apostle Paul says, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). These forces tend to control systems, government, and the mind of certain individuals to work against your progress at different times.
Sometimes, you may not be able to explain why inevitable failures occur in your marriage, business, office, or relationship with people. This is because the spiritual forces have exerted their influence to work against the progress. That is why the spiritual realm must be defeated at every point, for any meaningful progress can be seen in the physical.
Low or Failure Mentality:
The mind is a powerful instrument that can make the believer a champion or a failure. The bible says, For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he (Proverbs 23:7). You can not achieve progress if your mindset is not trained to think positively. Most times, the failure you are experiencing may not necessarily be spiritual but a result of your mind about certain areas of your life. Your low mentality may be due to what you have been listening to over time or seeing. When you can not see any good from a particular venture, the chances that nothing good will come from it are guaranteed.
Laziness and Inaction:
Inaction is another reason why certain people have not made progress in certain areas of their life. The bible says, “How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— 11 and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed.” People that are not ready to take action for progress will forever remain stagnant. You will certainly be limited and stagnate if you fail to recognize or neglect your role in your progress.
Pride and Ego:
Another reason why people fail to progress is that they are too prideful. Nothing is wrong with being confident about oneself. However, when you become too sure and see yourself above corrections, pride will definitely stop you from making progress at any level. The bible says, in Proverbs 16:18, that Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Pride makes one oblivious to various alternatives and options, and as a result, it serves as a roadblock to advancement.
How to Overcome Limitations and Stagnation
Here are some of the highlighted steps on how to overcome limitations and stagnation:
Prayer and Fasting:
Prayer and fasting are one of the ways of battling the spiritual realm that has limited you from making any progress. The bible says in Luke 10:19, Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and overall the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. So, once you are a believer, you are already empowered and victorious. However, you need to enforce your victory to become your present reality by engaging in fasting and prayers.
Overcoming Limiting Thoughts:
It is impossible to change something that you are completely unaware of. Begin by jotting down and keeping a record of the limiting thoughts and beliefs that are keeping you imprisoned. Ensure you begin to train your mind to leapfrog above those thoughts in your mind that have held you bound. Think big and open your mind to different possibilities at any given time. Ensure that you analyze every circumstance by looking through the lens of possibilities.
Take action on your great aspirations, even if they challenge your current views. The power of action is immense. Beliefs may change fast if they are challenged. If you’re feeling confined, you’ll want to get out of there as quickly as possible.
Make Knowledge a Priority:
Keep on increasing yourself by studying more. This is because self-restraint pushes you to expand your boundaries. There are several methods to learn and develop your skills, including reading, attending seminars, passing on your message, pushing your own boundaries, and taking on new challenges. Don’t stop expanding.
In conclusion, limitation and stagnation are powerful forces that have hindered the growth of several people. However, you can break free from restriction, stagnation, and retrogression by engaging in spiritual realities.
