Today, we want to look at: “BREAKING THE BOUNDARY”
I am going to read from the same Book, but two (2) Readings.2 Kings 6:24-28 and 2 Kings 7:1-7.
2 Kings 6:24-28:
24 And it came to Pass after this, that Benhadad king of Syria gathered all his Host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.
25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an Asses head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five Pieces of silver.
26 And as the king of Israel was Passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king.
27 And he said, If the Lord do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? Out of the barnfloor, or out of the winepress?
28 And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.
I JUMP to 2 Kings 7:1-7:
1 Then Elisha said, Hear ye the Word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.
2 Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the Man of God, and said, Behold, if the Lord would make windows in Heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
4 If we say, We will enter into the City, then the famine is in the City, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the Host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the Camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost Part of the Camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
6 For the Lord had made the Host of the Syrians to hear a noise of Chariots, and a noise of Horses, even the noise of a Great Host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their Tents, and their Horses, and their Asses, even the Camp as it was, and fled for their life.
May the Lord bless the reading and hearing of His Word – Amen!
We can as well close, reading this alone; but we are going to talk about: BREAKING THE BOUNDARY.

WHAT IS BOUNDARY?
Boundary is something that Limits you!
It limits your Ability, it limits your Potential, it Hinders you from Expansion.
Limit is what makes you Unmovable, unprogressive.
Many People say it’s because of this, it’s because of that! I will not do this, and I will not do that!
And so many People have been stagnated in life – They are stagnated Spiritually, they are stagnated Financially, they are stagnated Physically, they are stagnated Emotionally!
… Even in their Marriage, there has not been major Progress.
Somebody said – What can I do?
It is up to God anyway! It is not up to God alone; it is up to YOU.
The story we read – The People of Israel; they locked themselves in.
When you looked at that story -They locked the Gate, they locked the Door.
And these were Farmers! They had massive Land – Very Good land outside the Gate. Because they were besieged, they said,: ‘We can’t go!’
Only the leprosy men after the declaration of the Word of God went!
I want to quickly examine from that particular Passage, about: SEVEN (7) THINGS YOU CAN USE TO BREAK THE BOUNDARY.
1. The first (1st) thing we need to know from this Story, is the fact that:
Your case is not DIFFERENT, what you are going through is not PECULIAR.
In the Book of Ecclesiates 1:9, it says: “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no New Thing under the sun.”
… There is no NEW THING under Heaven.
May I say to you that life is not easy; but we have to face it.
Don’t allow Unpleasant situations to rob you of your Great Future. People may not want to stand with you; but when you stand alone, you win alone.
This you will see, as we continue with this Teaching.
The woman with the Issue of Blood – Nobody was with her! She moved her way through and she got her Miracle – Mark 5:25-34.
Nobody was there to help Bartimaeus – He navigated his way through to Miracle – Mark 10:46-52.
What are we saying?
Your case is not DIFFERENT, stop weeping in the cell of isolation.
No! Your case is not DIFFERENT – That is Number 1.
2. The second (2nd) Lesson: Learn to face REALITY; never Pretend that the situation doesn’t exist.
Life is full of CHOICES; Everything is full of RISK.
Matthew 10:39, Jesus Himself said: “He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
Matthew 16:26 says:
“For what is a man Profiteth, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own Soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his Soul?”
So you need to do away with sentiment. You need to do away with cover-up, you need to do away with Pretence, you need to do away with deception.
And all these must stop if you will Break Boundary – It is only Christ that gives you S.G.R (SECURED GUARANTEE RISK).
If you leave every other things in life and would come to JESUS CHRIST; you are SECURED.
That’s why you shouldn’t just be on this Platform and be hearing great Messages that God is releasing from our father-in-the-Lord and still remain the same!
So, you must prepare to face challenges; you must dare challenges of your life – Hence, you need to to that!
3. The third (3rd) Lesson: Famine is IN the City but not OUTSIDE the City.
Look at 2 Kings 6:25, Famine was in Samaria (not outside)! Because next to them are the Syrians and other Cities around them.
May I say to you: “Challenges of life don’t kill, they only create Opportunities.”
… Challenges are Ladders for Expansion.
When you read 2 Kings 6:26-28; everybody was in Problem. No one was Immuned!
Everybody will one day or the other face challenges!
In this Particular story, even the King was helpless.
And I Thank God we have a Scripture in the Book of Isaiah 43:1-3:
1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
2 When thou Passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
It means one day, challenges will come!
But all you need to do is: don’t ISOLATE yourself. Look out for something you can do!
… Famine is in the City, but not OUTSIDE the City.,
There is always a Solution to what you are going through.
4. Get away from what is Familiar, Get away from what is Comfortable, Get away from what is Convenient.
… Take a Good Decision for your life!
I like what Micah 6:1 says: “Hear ye now what the Lord saith; Arise, contend thou before the Mountains, and let the Hills hear thy voice.”
You are commanded to ARISE.
Isaiah 60:1 says: Arise, Shine!
Get ready, don’t fold your arms; do something. Take a bold step – move forward.
The devil is the only enemy that would not want you to move. He would not want you to change your Position.
And you know WHY?
Because you know his three (3) fold Mission. – John 10:10 says: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:”
He wants to STEAL your Joy, he wants to KILL your success and he wants to DESTROY your life at the end of the day.
But Thank God, the Part B of that John 10:10; Jesus says: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more Abundantly.”
Psalms 23:5B says: “Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
John 10:28 says: “And I give unto them Eternal Life; and they shall NEVER Perish, neither shall any Man Pluck them out of my hand.”
So what are we saying? – You need to get away from.the Familiar, get away from the Convenient get away from the Comfortable.
5. You need to Get OUTSIDE the Fence.
According to the story we learnt only the four (4) Lepers moved out of the Catchment Area.
Hear what the Lepers said to themselves in 2 Kings 7:3 – “And there were four leprous men at the entering of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?”
They said, it’s better to die in Motion than to die while stationed.
And as they MOVED – God moved with them.
You need to get Outside the Fence.
You know why? God believes in New Things.
Isaiah 43:18-19 says;
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a New Thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”
I came to announce to you and even those reading now on the Label of DMC: You need to get ready for your Miracle!
The Mighty God has Purposed to do Mighty Things in your life and no man can stop it.
And He wants you to do what No Man can do; so that No Man can stop it.
Forget the Old Thing; the Lord is set to do a NEW THINGS.
So much so that you will not remember the Pain of your Past again – Amen!
In Revelation 3:8, He says: “I have set a door open for you.”
So what is He saying? – It is available, it is obtainable. No one can shut the door.
By Divine Plan, no one can shut the door against you. The door is open. Your door is open!
I am talking about BREAKING BOUNDARIES. There are Boundaries you need to break!
… I will soon come to the Instruments of Breaking Boundaries.
6. Don’t Stop at the Bus Stop of DISCOURAGEMENT.
The devil is an expert Producer of discouragement – One of His products is discouragement.
So, don’t stay in the company of the familiar; like I said – It is the enemy of New Things. Satan would do anything to discourage you.
May I say: There is not a Single Patriarch, Saint, that wasn’t discouraged.
Jesus was on the Mountain in Matthew 26. He said “If it is Your Will.”
Elijah, in 1 Kings 19, was discouraged: “My life is not better than my fathers, kill me.”
These were outstanding Prophets in the Bible. At certain times in their lives they were discouraged.
Just as I said in the beginning; the case is not Perculiar to you alone. “The rich also cry.”
David, in 1 Samuel 17:28 – It was Eliab his elder brother who got angry with him. He brought food for them, yet they were angry with him.
Why was Eliab angry with David?
“And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab’s anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy Pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.”
Don’t allow the devil to discourage you. Even if there is no one to encourage you, do like David in 1 Samuel 30:6:
“And David was greatly distressed; for the People spake of stoning him, because the Soul of all the People was grieved, every Man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”
… He encouraged himself in the LORD his God.
People may not be there, because they can’t enter into your emotions; they don’t know what you are going through. But encourage yourself in the Lord and don’t be discouraged.
When David eventually killed Goliath; I wondered what Eliab would be saying, and where he would hide his face.
Do not use words of criticism on anyone because you don’t know what God has configured in them.
Hear what Nathaniel said: “Can anything Good come out of Nazareth?” But the brother said “come and see.”
Mind what you say about others because you don’t know what God has Packaged in them. And you yourself must refuse to be discouraged.
7. God never calls you to do what you CAN do; but what you CANNOT DO.
… So that His Ability can come into Action.
If you can do it, you don’t need God. If you cannot do it, then ask Him.
He doesn’t call you to do what you can do; rather He calls you to do what will display His Abilities.
In Isaiah 59:19 He says: “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a STANDARD against him.”
In 1 John 4:4 He says: “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
In Joshua 1:6, 7 and 9, two (2) great words were used.
God told Joshua, Be Strong and of a Good Courage: Only be thou Strong and very courageous; Have not I commanded thee? Be Strong and of a Good Courage;
Let me say this to you: “Everyone who wants to BREAK BOUNDARIES must graduate from the WAR (Battle) College of God.”
David is an example; he went to the War College before becoming a King – Even before he ascended the Throne.
WHAT WERE THE THINGS DAVID ENCOUNTERED IN THE WAR COLLEGE OF GOD?
1. Lion and Bear (ALONE). – 1 Samuel 17:34-37.
… There comes a time when you need to be ALONE.
2. He FACED Goliath.
In the midst of opposition and discouragement, he faced Goliath.
They belittled his effort. And that’s found 1 Kings 17:37-51.
When you look at 1 Samuel 18, I’m sure verses 5-11 would be okay!
When David defeated Goliath, King Saul was against him. Because the women sang: “Saul has killed a thousand, David has killed ten Thousand.”
In 2 Samuel 2:8-11, and 13-17; there was ENVY. Abner – they deceived him!
These are things you need to learn and master before you can ascend the Throne.
In 2 Samuel 5:17-25; David had to face the Philistines.
In the War College, there are few Subjects you need to master before Graduation. Hence, it is time to move (for God)!
And until all of us who are called by the Name of the LORD saturate our Nation with Good News; no meaningful change can take Place.
The Politicians cannot give us any Change. If you think they can change anything, just watch – the Roads, all your bogus Promises. None are being delivered!
That tells us: Only God can make Promises and fulfil them – Hence the Bible says ‘CURSED is any man who trusts in Human Being.’
It took four (4) Lepers to bring Deliverance to a City. But the Anointed of God sat in the City with the Problem!
Four (4) Lepers went outside the City in search of Solution; while those who were Anointed sat in the City.
It’s Good to Pray but most times you need to accompany your Prayers with Actions.
Because Prayers without accompanying Action is an exercise in futility.
HOW CAN WE BREAK BOUNDARIES?
1. Hold tightly to the Word of God.
2 Kings 7:1, the Man of God said: “Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.”
… So you need to hold tightly to the Word of God.
Hebrews 4;12 says: “For the Word of God is Quick, and Powerful, and Sharper than any twoedged sword, Piercing even to the dividing asunder of Soul and Spirit, and of the Joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
In the Book of Jeremiah 23:29, the Bible says: “Is not my Word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in Pieces?”
And that’s why the Word of God is Supreme! Don’t give in to the report of the devil – Develop a Right Mentality.
In the Book of Proverbs 23:7, the Bible says: “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:”
It takes a Good Mentality to contend successfully.
Ten (10) out of the twelve (12) Spies who went to spy the Land of Promise, never got there because of their Mentality.
They said: “We are like Grasshoppers.”
And God said: Okay, you are free! – Numbers 13:31-33.
… RIGHT MENTALITY!
Ephesians 6:13-14. It says:
“Wherefore take unto you the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;”
It takes determination to Break Boundaries; and you can break your own Boundary.
David determined that “I’m going to kill Goliath.” And he did it!
Daniel said, although I am in the land of Captivity, I am going to be Promoted. And he got it!
4. Have FAITH in God.
Have Faith in God, because to break Boundaries, you need Faith.
1 John 5:4 says:
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the Victory that overcometh the world, even our Faith.”
Your Faith is the thing that conquers the world; your Faith is what brings you Victory. Faith is a substance – Hebrews 11:1
In Job 13:15, a man going through turbulence said: “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.”
… Keep holding unto to God.
5. Make God’s Kingdom your Top Priority.
There is no Kingdom without a King; and God is the King of His Kingdom. And we are Part of His Kingdom.
In Malachi 3:16-18, the Bible says: Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a Book of Remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon His Name.”
Jesus declared in Matthew 6:33: “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
6. VIOLENT PRAYERS.
One of the Prayers you should be Praying is that: “God will deliver you from CONVENIENT BONDAGE.
Stop managing situations.
In Like 18:1, the Bible says: “And he spake a Parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to Pray, and not to Faint;”
When you Pray, you Prevail; If Nothing succeeds in breaking Boundaries, Prayer will.
The Bible says: It is “The effectual fervent Prayer of a Righteous Man availeth much” – James 5:16B.
James 5:16-18 talks about Elijah Praying that there will be no rain.
In Matthew 17:21, add Fasting to it – “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by Prayer and Fasting.”
7. Create a Joyful Atmosphere around yourself.
Proverbs 12:25 says: “Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a Good word maketh it glad.”
But I like Proverbs 15:13 and 30. Which says: “A Merry heart maketh a Cheerful countenance: A Good report maketh the bones fat.”
Joy is contagious, Joy is infectious and can easily influence others. So learn to say: “IT IS WELL.”
We need to learn to Sing this Song always – IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.
1. When Peace, like a river, attends all my way,
when sorrows like sea-billows roll,
whatever my Path, you have taught me to say,
‘It is well, it is well with my soul.’
‘It is well with my Soul,
it is well, it is well with my Soul.’
2. Though Satan may buffet, though trials may come,
let this calm assurance control:
that Christ knows my Need and my helplessness here
and has shed his own blood for my Soul.
3. The Joy, O the Joy of this Glorious thought!
My sin, not in Part but the whole,
is nailed to his Cross and I bear it no more;
Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, O my Soul!
4. For me it is Christ, it is Christ now to live!
Though death’s waters over me roll,
no fear shall be mine, for in death as in life
you will whisper your Peace to my Soul.
5. But, Lord, for your coming in Glory we wait;
the Sky, not the grave, is our Goal;
the trumpet shall sound and the Lord shall descend:
bless the Lord, bless the Lord, O my soul!
WHAT ARE THOSE BOUNDARIES AROUND YOUR LIFE?
… Let’s arise and break them today.
We are going to Pray that: the Holy Spirit will order our steps, deliver us from Convenient and Comfortable bondage.
You know, every Barrier must give way!
If you are not Born Again, Please, give Him a chance – It’s your time to be Born Again because you need to BREAK the BONDAGE of SIN.
And if you are Born Again, you know this is not the level you ought to be; Please, I beg of you – Do something today.
It’s not just about God alone, there are things you need to do by yourself: It’s one thing for God to give you, it’s another thing for you to receive!
And the Process of Receiving it is to BREAK THE BARRIER.
Let’s bow our head!
If you want to surrender your lives to Jesus today, just say this simple Prayer:
“Lord, I come to You, Please, save me, write my name in the Book of Life”.
And if you are under any bondage, just Pray and say:
“Lord, DELIVER me from this subtle bondage, I REFUSE to be under any Spell. Let my POTENTIAL be given EXPRESSION.”
Thank You Father!
PRAYER FOR SALVATION AND CLOSING PRAYER.
Lord, Thank You for the People who are giving their lives. We worship Your Name for the Word.
I Pray You will save them today, write their names in the Book of Life.
And I ask Oh LORD, as from today, the Power to overcome sin, You n will give unto them!
And for ALL Believers who are Praying – “Let this Bondage be taken away!”
Lord every Boundaries in their lives, let them be broken.
Please, give them Freedom.
Let them have Freedom: Spiritually, Physically, Financially. And let them operate to the fullest of their Ability.
And I Pray that when this is done, we will make it here on Earth; and we will make it to Heaven.
Thank You our Father!
Help us to serve You more and Love You better. Have mercy on us.
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we Pray – AMEN!
Praise the Name of the Lord. We want to appreciate God for today again!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
