|“They turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.”|
(Psalm 78:41, KJV)
|Take the Limits Off|
We serve a God of increase! He wants to do new things in our lives. We should always be rising to new levels, but it’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and just settle for the status quo. Sometimes we think, “Well, I’ve reached my limits. I’ve gone as far as I can go. This is as happy as I’ll ever be.” But if we’re going to continue to increase and really experience God’s best, we have to get our thinking lined up with God’s thinking.
It’s interesting that in this scripture, the people limited the Holy One of Israel. Think about that. How can the all-powerful God, the Creator of the universe, be limited? By our thinking. He can be limited in our lives by what we believe. A lot of people don’t realize today that it’s their own wrong thinking that’s keeping them in mediocrity.
Today, take the limits off by choosing to believe God. Feed your faith by studying His Word. As you meditate on His promises with an open and humble heart, you’ll see Him move mightily in your life, and you will experience the blessings He has prepared for you!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father God, today I choose to believe You. I take the limits off by trusting that You have good plans for my future. I invite You to search my heart and remove anything that isn’t pleasing to You. I bless You today and always in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
