It’s Time to Break Out!
By Joel Osteen - Sep 27, 2013
You were not created to just get by with an average, unrewarding or unfulfilled life. God created you to leave a mark on your generation. You have seeds of greatness planted within you by our Creator. When life weighs you down or tries to limit or label you, you have to know that with God, you have what it takes to overcome and rise above circumstances, oppositions and obstacles.

Know today that there is no force in the universe that can stop you from fulfilling your God-given destiny except for you. God is for you. The enemy is against you. They both have a plan for your life. You cast the deciding vote for whose plan you will actually live out.

Today, if you've felt limited, overwhelmed or burdened down by circumstances, that's not God's plan for your life. John 10:10 says He desires that you have life and have it to the full, in abundance. Today is your day to take the limits off. It's time to shake off the past; it's time to shake off burdens; it's time to Break Out!

My deepest desire is to see you rise above anything that has held you back. I want to see you break free from the past and break out of confining mindsets. That's why I wrote my new book, Break Out!: Five Ways to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life. I want to provide you with practical steps and encouragement for living a life without limitations—the life God designed for you!

Remember, if God is for you, who can be against you? Don't settle for less than God's best. Don't settle for average or ordinary when you were designed for the extraordinary. Choose to rise about limitations and choose to Break Out today!
