Summary: We serve a God that is unlimited. He does not have any limits, except when we limit Him because of our unbelieve.
WE SHOULD NOT LIMIT GOD
Most people do not realize the power of WORDS. When I speak about things, circumstances and even my city, do I realize that I am actually laying a foundation for my life and surroundings?
Words are spirit vehicles. When you drive past a great Watermill in Rondebosch, Cape Town or even in the Great Karoo when you see a windmill – you see the instrument that actually are tapping in the wind that was there for ages but now are being harvested for good. It is being used into an essential power source. My friend Francois du Toit said on his website www.mirrorreflection.net “Whenever a windmill is erected, wind that remained untapped for ages can now be harvested and harnessed into an essential power source.
We have discovered and mastered the technology of transmission and reception. Today the airwaves are bursting with intelligent information in full colour. It all remains invisible and inaudible until a receiver is tuned to a specific frequency.
The ear is designed to hear the voice of its Maker; ’Whoever has an ear to hear let him hear.’ God’s eternal voice has found an expression in the incarnation to be known and read by all men.”
Wow – we are living and sitting between words and ideas flying around us and they are able with the right decoder to be forming our world.
That is why the scripture says:
Romans 10:17 (NKJV)
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:8 (NKJV)
8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):
You our faith world is sustained what we hear or do not hear. What we believe comes to us. It is delivered in paper back, electronic format, by sms (text messages), by television and billboards, it is broadcast on the airwaves and we hear it from our colleagues.
Words deceive us. Words transmit. The very words that we HEAR or SPEAK will transmit FAITH or FEAR. So we speak about SPOKEN WORDS – we are speaking about things that are powerful.
Words are the very vehicles that will transport our fears or faith. The WORD of GOD is clear – it has the abilty to give life or to poison. You choose.
Proverbs 18:21 (The Message)
21 Words kill, words give life;
they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
So we know that we were created in God’s likeness. God spoke and He created the World. We create our own world by speaking or ALLOWING certain things to be SPOKEN in our EARS that form our WORLD
EX: Potchefstroom – how pastors told me that the type of people I am ministering do not live in Potch. The rector even told me at a meeting that the university are now going for quality and not quantity “ So pastor I do not think you are going to grow with more of your people”
So what did we do? I felt bad and wanted to leave the city. I was discouraged because I was not an amazing, anointed and appointed man of God for the hour of power… No my name is Willem, I attended 6 schools. Took forever to finish my degree. Who am I. My wife did not even like my preaching. I had good sermons after conferences…That is what I believed and what I told other people in private. But that was what was in my heart and that limited God. So my faith journey ladies and gentlemen was super. Super slow.
So what happened – well I am from Africa so we are sometimes stubborn. So we said then let us call those people into our city. Week after week we started to bless the university. From 650 fresh men it became 1200, then 1800 then 2400 then 3500 and now between 4300 and 4500. So every year our university has grown. Now there are over 20000 students. The same with our city. We called people week after week into our city.
Hebrews 3:1 (NKJV)
3 Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Christ Jesus,
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Life and death is in your tongue.
So our words can limit GOD.

Hebrews 3:7-14 (NKJV)
7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says:
“Today, if you will hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
In the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me,
And saw My works forty years.
10 Therefore I was angry with that generation,
