There are many restraints that are placed on you daily by the world, they need to be ignored. Restraints have one goal, and that’s to keep you from doing your God ordained purpose that’s on the inside of you. They come in many forms, shapes and sizes, so sometimes its hard to recognize them.
I once heard a very wise man by the name of Myles Monroe make a profound statement that has stuck with me over the years.
He stated, “The wealthiest place in the world is not the gold mines of South America or the oil fields of Iraq or Iran. They are not the diamond mines of South Africa or the Banks of the world. The wealthiest place on the planet is just down the road. It is the cemetery. There lie buried companies that were never started, inventions that were never made, bestselling books that were never written, and masterpieces that were never painted. In the cemetery is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential.”
This statement is so rich in truth when you really think about it. Restraints happened to all those people in the nearest cemetery, many of them gave into those restraints and never accomplished what they were created to do.
See, God almighty gives us the vision and even the ability to accomplish what He has placed on the inside of us. It’s up to us to do the work, God is not going to do your work for you.
Many people pray for God to do everything in their lives. Their prayer is Lord you go and win the lost, Lord you go and set up that meeting, Lord you go and talk to those people for me, Lord you buy that equipment for me, while they sit on their couch and relax.
No, that’s not the way it works, you have to put some feet to what He has placed on the inside of you to get things accomplished. He’s not here in the flesh on the earth, you are.
If you do just a quick study of the patriarchs of faith in Hebrews chapter 11, everyone of them threw off the restraints of the generation they were living in and put feet to what God placed on the inside of them. Many received threats and strong opposition, even some to the point of death, but they emptied out all that was given them on the inside to accomplish.
So its time for you today, this moment, to throw off the restraints that the world has placed on you and put some feet to what He has placed on the inside of you to accomplish.
Notice you never hear about the people that let the restraints overcome them, you only here of the ones who against great odd’s and persecution overcame and accomplished their God given purpose.
My prayer is that at the end of your life you will be able to join course with the Apostle Paul and make this statement, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” II Timothy 4:7 (NKJV)
There’s nothing at the Apostle Paul’s grave site it was all emptied out to the world while he was alive! Throw off the restraints!
