Who do you think you are? – You are your own limiting factor. Over the weekend, I heard a brother explaining how even though fleas can leap up to eighteen inches, if you keep one in a container with a ceiling as low as six inches for a period of time, when you remove the container, it will only be able to leap as high as the height of that container. The limitations are self-imposed. Going back to the original question, who do you think you are? Do you think of yourself as a talented, empowered child of God? Why not?
