Saturday Sacrifice: Why do we Limit God?

In Hebrews 13:8, it clearly states Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

I said “we” because I sometimes limit God as well.

Why do we do this? We say we believe in how Great, Awesome, and Powerful he is…but do we really truly believe that.

Do we walk in this faith daily? It is definitely a challenge that is easier said than done.

 For me personally, in the good times I am extremely faithful, however, when those bad times come my faith in His power waiver.

 That’s when I have to check myself. He is the same yesterday and today and forever, right?...YES, HE IS!!

So, in knowing that he is the same for all time, we should walk in this life without worrying about anything. In other words, we shouldn’t worry about the giants we face in life.

 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.~ Phillipians 4:6-8

In Acts 20:1-16, we see our limitless God bring to life a young man named Eutychus. It says, Seated in a window was a young man named Eutychus, who was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked on and on. When he was sound asleep, he fell to the ground from the third story and was picked up dead. 10 Paul went down threw himself on the young man and put his arms around him. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “He’s alive!”

The young man was dead but God brought him back to life! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, right? ...Then let’s believe he can heal the sick and raise the dead.

In Judges 13, we see our limitless God bless a barren woman with a child of her own. In verse 3 it says, And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.

God blessed her with a son even though she was barren! God mad the impossible, possible!! He is the same yesterday, today and forever, right? … Then let’s believe he can turn impossible situations around so it works out for our good.

These are just two examples where God demonstrates his awesome power. Even God tells us how powerful and limitless he is. In Job, he says Who then is able to stand against me? Who has a claim against me that I must pay? Everything under heaven belongs to me.

Everything under heaven belongs to Him. Believe that God has no limits, that with His power he can do anything. If he did it for that young man and barren woman in the bible then he can do it for you and me.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. ~ Hebrews 13:8

Stay in God’s Peace, not in pieces =)
