This affects us all - in our lives people become big & God becomes small. The bible calls it the fear of man and describes it like a noose around our necks - trapping us and cornering us. We are often to afraid to speak or act because we fear what people may think. When the voices of others are louder and decide how we live our lives then we are limiting God. In this talk Andrew shows from the story of Gideon how we can overcome the fear of people and stop allowing their opinions, whether real or imagined, to stop us from entering into new levels of freedom & purpose
In this series we are challenging ourselves to not limit God in our lives. We need more of God and His Kingdom in our lives - The main issue is we limit Him and not that He holds back from us. This week guest Pastor Shima talks about being raised from death to life. Pronounced dead by doctors after a horrific car crash, Shima explains how the power of God worked in that situation. This talk will challenge you & stretch you about what you believe God is able to do
Who gets to call the shots in your life? Do you ever feel like circumstances & other people have more control than you do? We limit God when we allow ourselves to be defined by what goes on around us and also by the lies that we believe about ourselves. The starting point for taking the limits off God in our lives is not being defined by anyone or anything other than what Jesus says about us. How? In this talk Andrew looks at the difference between body, soul & Spirit and shows how every truth that God says about you is in your Spirit first - once we get that it starts to change our bodies and soul. Foundational truth for change!

We limit Him in many ways & today Andrew starts by looking at how the root of how we limit God is false identity - We do not really believe what God says about us. Start with this and you will see your life begin to turn
