Limitless and Without Boundaries

You may have noticed that I missed out on Faith Friday for the past two weeks. As much as I want to stick to 5 posts a week, sometimes I feel uninspired or just not passionate about something in particular, and in those cases I'd rather not put out content I'm not happy with. For the past two days in prayer, this has been on my mind so I think it's finally worth sharing!

It's not unusual for humans to place boundaries on just about everything. Boundaries that tell us how far is "too far", boundaries that separate nations and peoples, boundaries on how much we can do for others, and boundaries on what we can achieve. But there's something you can never put limits or boundaries on and that's God. In all that God is, He tells us that there is nothing He can't handle and therefore through Him, we need not worry!

This is something we all "know" but I honestly don't think we fully put into practice throughout the day. For the past few weeks I've been constantly doubting what God can do and that seriously bothers me when I take that extra second to evaluate the situation. Times where you think the words "But I can't" or "this is just too much" - just say no to those thoughts! Don't ever let your fear put limitations on who God is. Whatever it may be that you are uncertain, afraid or nervous about, know He's got it under control. He knows when the sun will set, He knows where the wind will blow, and yes, He knows where He wants to take you, you just have to let Him. 

Remind yourself constantly about these truths:

"For no word from God will ever fail" - Luke 1:37

"With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible" - Matthew 19:26

In both of these cases the Bible presents situations that just seem impossible to solve. How could Mary conceive a child through the Holy Spirit and Elizabeth bear a child at her age? How could a rich man be saved if Jesus is saying that it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle? The only solution and way is through God, end of story. So if His word was true and didn't fail in these seemingly impossible cases, what makes you think that a little fear can stop Him?

Personally, I'm completely fed up with putting limits and boundaries on God's love, goodness, will, power and strength in my life, and I feel like a lot of people feel the same way. Just think about the fact that He is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. These words encompass everything - He is everywhere, He is all-powerful and all-knowing. There are no limits in those attributes. He wants to do so much in our lives and we can't see past the initial struggle!

Have faith that there's more over that hill. Know that it may look like a mountain but with Him, you'll realize that as you get closer to it, it was just a bump in the road. Believe that His love and power can stretch further than your imagination can run and that whatever you're facing is nothing compared to all that He can do. He is everything and in everything so choose to make Him your everything and get rid of those limitations you make up in your head. He is greater!
