Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
The Apostle Paul in writing to the saints or believers at Rome informs them that God has dealt to every believer the measure of faith. It is a measure of the same faith God used when He created the world in Genesis chapter one. We don’t use our faith to create in the same sense that God did for He created something from nothing (or that didn’t exist). Our faith receives what has already been created as a provision for us by the work of Jesus Christ in God’s grace. It gives us all access and entry into all Jesus did for us (Romans 5:2). It removes limitations that men, culture or society may try to put on us. Faith knows no limitations. We must believe that or we will not ever have a growing faith.
1. Faith can break natural limitations. Like Peter, he did what was naturally impossible and what circumstances said couldn’t happen. He walked on the water Matt. 14:22-33.
2. Faith can overcome physical limitations. Blind Bartimaeus didn’t need eyes to get to Jesus, only faith Mk. 10:46-52
3. Faith has no racial limitations. Chinese, Africans, Russians, Asians, Hispanics and Americans can all have faith. The Bible is not an Eastern book or Western book but a God book filled with faith.
4. Faith has no economic limitations. The richest and poorest can have faith. Faith will work on Wall Street or the gutters of the street).
5. Faith knows no social limitations. (God can bless people of prestige and power as well as people with no influence).
6. Faith knows no religious boundaries. (Faith jumps religious boundaries. It does not belong to a certain religious group. A Catholic can have faith, a Presbyterian can have faith, and Pentecostals can have faith).
