INTRODUCTION: A limit is a point or level beyond which something or someone does not or may not extend or pass. There are people who limit themselves by setting a barrier to what they can achieve or how far they can go in life. For some people, statements such as, “why did I ever come into this family?’’ ‘‘Can I make it in life?’’ ‘‘I know I can never reach that height’’ are very common in their words, thoughts, or actions. It is important therefore to identify factors capable of limiting you and how to enlarge your scope.




Several factors can be responsible for human limitations, but we shall examine the following:

  1. Fear of the unknown or uncertainty (Numbers 13:33).
  2. Refusal to make good use of the opportunities around to do exploits (Matthew 25:24-25).
  3. Placing an embargo on self (1 Kings 19:4).
  4. Failure to network with people of like passion (1 Samuel 22:1-2).
  5. Incessant complaints and excuses (1 Corinthians 10:10).
  6. Being passive about life: “Life will not give you what you desire but what you demand.” (Joshua 14:12).
  7. Inactive prayer life. Some limitations need divine intervention – like Jabez (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).
  8. Unwarranted covenant entered into ignorantly or deceitfully (Joshua 9:6; 22-23).
  9. Living continuously in regrets (Philippians 3:13-14).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention other factors responsible for limitations.


You must be deliberate to enlarge your scope (Luke 12:18). Knowledge is power, make conscious efforts to add to what you know to grow big (Proverbs 2:10-11; 8:12). You need to do more than what you are doing now (Ecclesiastes 11:6) – there is always room for improvement. Confront your fears, deal with them, and see a new lease of life open before you (Numbers 27:1-7). It is necessary to develop the ‘I can do it’ attitude (Philippians 4:13). Step into new terrains, be bold to take over territories, and move upward on the ladder of success (Joshua 15:13-14). Prayerfully remove any seal that wants to limit you (1 Chronicles 4:10). Believe that no force can limit you (1 Peter 2:6; Ephesians 1:20-21; 2:6).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should mention what they are doing currently to enlarge their coast.

CONCLUSION: Take the limits off and be the best you can. There is room at the top for you!


  1. Mention three factors that influence human limitation.
  2. What can believers do to enlarge their scope?

15 And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the Lord beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the Lord stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.
