Don’t Limit God

by | Mar 9, 2018

There are many things in life where we could say, “there’s no way that could ever happen”, but what if those things could happen? Our minds cannot comprehend the extent of what God can do. Don’t limit God.

God told me at the beginning of this year that miracles would happen to those willing to believe. When I heard this, I thought to myself, “I’ll have no problem with believing in God.

But not too long after that, I found myself saying, “I doubt that could happen.”

I was facing a situation where I needed God to move into someone’s heart about a certain matter, but I just couldn’t see it happening. As much as God was revealing things to them, it didn’t seem to be moving them to take the actions that I knew were of God’s will.

Without me realizing, I was at a point where I didn’t believe God could change their hearts. But during my alone time with God,  I was drawn to Isaiah 40:25 which changed my perspective completely: “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.”

The Holy Spirit convicted me that I have been comparing Him to my own capabilities. But who am I to compare God to myself and what I can comprehend?

God cannot be compared to anything or anyone. He created the heavens and the earth, including you and me. Isaiah 40:26 says, “Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name.”

God’s power is greater than our greatest strength. Who are we to limit what God can do?

1 Corinthians 1:25 says, For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

Are you lacking faith in God’s power to move in your situation? Have you limited your expectations of God based on what you can comprehend? 

We can’t grasp God’s ways because His ways are outside our ways. God has immense power, so why would he limit His ways to our level? God loves taking us through impossible situations so that His power can be seen. We should praise God when we find ourselves in a situation where there seems to be no hope because it’s in those moments when God wants to show off in our lives.

Isaiah 55:9 reminds us, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

In John 11 we see Jesus doing the impossible. He raises a man by the name of Lazarus who has been dead for 4 days. Everyone around Jesus saw no hope for Lazarus. Their minds couldn’t even fathom Jesus raising a dead man.

Martha says to Jesus, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days” (John 11:38). Jesus replies, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” (John 11:39).  Jesus then calls Lazarus to come out, and Lazarus came out alive.

Just as God was able to do the miraculous in Lazarus’s life, He is able to do the same with your life. The only thing you need to do to see God’s glory in your life is to believe and take the step of faith.

It never came to the minds of the others that Jesus could raise Lazarus from the dead – but He did.

What situation in your life are you saying, “that can’t happen“? Will you believe that God is able to do the impossible?

God has already done amazing miracles in my life, and I know He will only continue to do so.

God’s job is to do the impossible and our job is to believe. 

Don’t box God up by what your mind can understand. Isaiah 40:28 says, “..The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.

Believe that God will do the impossible no matter how impossible your situation may be. So remember, don’t limit God.

Prayer: Lord, help me to not limit your ways. There’s truly none like you.
