One of the first stops of my vacation was the world renown city of Dubai. I was beyond excited to enter it’s terrains. I was completely taken back by it’s ultramodern architecture and it’s luxurious atmosphere. Hundreds of skyscrapers lined it’s many streets.
Dubai had almost everything imaginable! If there was something you wanted to eat, Dubai had it. If there was something you wanted to buy, Dubai had it. If there was something you wanted to do, Dubai had it. Quite frankly, the word OVERWHELMING would be an understatement. Lol
Dubai strives for excellency in all areas. Seeking to be the biggest and best at everything. So, I was SUPER excited to visit one of it’s most prize possessions and accomplishments.
The BURJ KHALIFA!
It is the worlds tallest building, towering at 828 meters. It took a total of 6 years to complete, in which several of the best engineers were flown in from all over the world to help with it’s construction. Thousands of laborers worked tirelessly everyday to build it’s foundation; all the way to it’s very detailed superstructure.
When my eyes gazed at the building I was completely taken back by it’s height, vastness, and astounding beauty. It was absolutely amazing that such a structure like this could ACTUALLY be built. To think that one day this was just a “thought,” a “dream,” and now that same thought and dream was actualized.
I remember looking out of the glass at the top balcony, thinking about the awesomeness of God. The fact that God created men and women who had brains and insight to construct such a structure. Then my mind thought about Ephesians 3:20, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”
As amazing as the Burj Khalifa is, and all the many world records it has broken, there was still a LIMIT. You see, it could never reach the skies of outer space or beyond. However, where man is limited, God is LIMITLESS! The creation of the earth and humanity is proof of that! Man’s greatest imaginations, inventions, and creations are nothing compared to what God can do!
So if we serve such an immaculate God, why do we try to limit Him in our own lives? Why do we lack faith in what He can do for us and through us? The key in life is relying on HIS POWER and not our limited strength.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “God can do IMMEASURABLY MORE!” He’s an immeasurably more kind of God. Not only that, he can do EXCEEDINGLY MORE than ALL we ASK or IMAGINE. Do we understand that even our greatest thoughts and imaginations don’t even begin to compare to what God can do?
Everything is according to HIS POWER! Not our own strength, our own abilities, or our own minds by themselves but according to HIS POWER that is at work within us. It is when we take ALL of who we are (in which God so intricately created) and entrust our very existence, abilities, gifts, and talents within HIS hands. It is then that HIS POWER works within us.
So choose this very moment to stop trying limit God in your life!

People always say, “Sky is the limit.” No no no my friend.
The GREAT JEHOVAH GOD is LIMITLESS !
Live in the truth of that.
