Reflections on Unlimiting God by Richard Blackaby
Hurray! I am elated to share with you this book that I read for the month of January which was written by Dr. Richard Blackaby entitled “Unlimiting God.” Dr. Richard is the president of the Blackaby Ministries International and speak internationally on leadership and the Christian life. My hunger for God’s teaching motivated me to purchase and read this book during my free time. Dr. Richard satisfied my eagerness to know more about God and experience Him in my life.
By just reading the title, a question might arise at the back of our head. How do we unlimit God or do we really unlimit God? Our God for all we know is the most powerful and the most exalted of all. He is our Creator so how could He have a limit? According to Dr. Blackaby, it is not God who has limit, but we, His creations do unlimit Him. As I progressed in my reading on his book, I realized that we unlimit God but we are not just aware of it. We do it whenever we get easily satisfied with mediocrity. Whenever we stop growing with some aspects of our lives, then, that is the time we unlimit God. Whenever we get too comfortable in our lives, to the extent that we are not aiming anymore to learn and discover new things, then we unlimit our God.
In this busy world where technology seems to be the one using us and not us using the technology, it is a challenge to listen to the word of God. There are so many distractions, and unless we give the Word of God a special place in our heart, we cannot live by it. This book made me realized that we should not be afraid to take challenges. These challenges are the reasons for us to grow. It contains truths that are oftentimes ignored. This book is an eye opener that God has good plans for us. Doubts and fears should have no place in the heart of a person who believes in God. It teaches have to have faith and our faith should be proved by our actions.
