TITLE: Beyond Limitations
Limitation is something that control the size or extent of something. Limitation also determines how much of a thing is possible. It controls what a person is able to do, placing a limit on what is achievable.
The human mind has placed a strong limitation around it, contrary to #dominion that God had in mind at the beginning (Genesis 1:26). It sets the limits to what one can attain.

Recap: Roots are symbolic of stability while fruits are symbolic of prosperity. Roots are essential for survival- supplying strength, support.

Recap: In the parable of the sower, the fruits produced was dependent on the kind of ground the seeds fell and this is symbolic of the states of our heart. God looks beyond the surface and always considers the state of our hearts.
Today, we begin to consider what is essential for fruitfulness ( John 15:16). God intends that we bring forth fruit that will remain. It is His utmost plan that the righteous man brings forth fruit even in old age (Psalm 92).
