Scripture Reflection

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matt 25:21

“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed–not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence–continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”  Phil 2:12

Last week, we reviewed a series of tools designed to help you crystallize your goal. This week we will review the fears, beliefs and identities that subconsciously sabotage  the very goals you’re trying to achieve. As you review this section, pray for grace, wisdom and understanding so that you can be patient with yourself as you understand the process of change. It can often feel like one step forward and two steps back  so give yourself lots of love and trust the process.

 

 Week 7- Understanding Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs are negative, engrained thoughts, thinking patterns or beliefs that we hold about ourselves, our world around us and God. They  developed as a result of something that was done or said to us. As a result, they limit our ability to live the abundant life Christ died for us to live.

Sadly, many of us Christians continue to live under a barrage limiting beliefs. We live as if there is no power in God’s word or if there is, it applies to others but it’s too far out of reach for us to grasp. Like carrying around a bag of bricks every day, these limiting beliefs  erode our faith, make our journey burdensome and leave us feeling like there is no hope.

We identified 3 types of limiting beliefs: limiting beliefs about yourself, limiting beliefs about people, and limiting beliefs about God and faith.

 

For today,

Review your limiting beliefs you identified in Week 7 . Have these beliefs changed at all? What do you do when you notice these beliefs? What is different?
