Do Not Limit God


Visitors: 153

Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One Of Israel (Psalm 78:41)

Do you know it is possible to limit God in your life? A lot of people have unconsciously placed limits on what the Lord can do in their lives. For example, there is a young guy who wants to get a job and all he prays is, “Oh Lord, please let my application be accepted in so and so company. " He places so much emphasis in his prayer on his letter of application, thinking that God must do it that way. Unknown to him, he is limiting God, because He fails to realize that God could give him that job any other way, or even a better one.

Listen, when God wants to do something, He does not have to follow the way that men have laid down - He overrides all human ‘modus operandi. ’ When Joshua was plotting how to overthrow Jericho, a city whose walls were almost impregnable, God showed up and said, “Boy, get rid of all those calculations; we will do it my way. March round the city for seven good days and shout, and the walls will fall down flat" (Joshua 6). What a strategy! God did not say “Now, Joshua, let us roll out the bulldozers and tractors"; He had to get Joshua out of the box he was in, and everything went as God had said.

Do not ever place a limit on God! You limit Him when you think that the only way He can get something done is the way you think He will do it. He is too big to be tied down to man's way of doing things. When he does His thing, He does not need to do it according to your plans. Trust Him, because He is God Almighty, and He is able to do “. . . exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us".
