Lifting the Limits
Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel (Psalm 78:41). …But with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). …If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes (Mark 9:23).
The children of Israel limited God with their disobedience and their unbelief. Though He had miraculously delivered them from Egyptian bondage and met their needs in supernatural ways, they continued to whine and complain when difficulties came.
God is limitless. He is Almighty! He has all power. He is the source of all that exists. He is eternal, with no beginning and no end. He knows everything! The angels in revelation sang out, The Lord God omnipotent reigns!
This being true, it’s time for us to take the limits off of our lives. God has taken His “Almightiness” and has pointed it towards our need by reminding us that with God all things are possible, and with all things are possible to Him who believes! It’s possible to for your prayers to be answered. It’s possible to overcome that weakness of the flesh. It’s possible to overcome that inability and do what’s in your heart! It’s possible to overcome the problem in your marriage. It’s possible for your children to turn around and obey God. It’s possible to be healed of that chronic illness.
The first step is repentance for our disobedience. The second step is a positive exercising of our faith. God is not a man that He should lie! If He says it He will do it, if He’s spoken it, He will make it good! His word will not return to Him void! It produces results!
Let’s refuse to limit God with our unbelief. Let’s act on the Word in every circumstance. Let’s believe we receive God’s best in every area of life. Let’s speak God’s Word and agree with what He says about or past, our present, our future, our health, our finances, our marriage and families, our children, our jobs, and our relationships. Let’s expect answers to our prayers. Speak to the mountain looming in your way and expect it to be removed as Jesus said it would. Believe in your heart that what you say will come to pass! God cannot lie!
We lift the limits by acting in obedient faith in the faces of great difficulty.
