THE WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 76-78 (Click to read Today’s Word)
Psalm 78:42 41 Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.
Can God make a rock so big that even HE can’t move it?
Hmmmm…He is all powerful so yes, He can make a rock so big that He can’t move it. But…wait…He is so powerful there is nothing HE can’t do.
The Psalmist speaks to the disobedience of the people of God. They tested and tempted God again and again…he says, “And limited the Holy One of Israel.”
Now question is, “Did their disobedience really limit God?” Or, “Did He limit what HE could do through the people?” The answer…YES!
God chooses to limit what HE can do through the disobedient. He limits what He can do through the stubborn and ill hearted. In the midst of rebellion against HIM we can’t reach the full potential of HIS call upon our life.
There are some questions that I ponder when I think about the behavior of God’s people limiting Him. Does my sin limit what God can do through me? Does my disobedience in the secret part of my life thwart the work of the Holy Spirit of God? Does my stubborn pride and selfish ways get in the way of God using me for HIS honor and glory? YES…YES…YES!!!
But it doesn’t have to be that way…it’s time to repent…NOW!!!
Father unleash YOUR awesome power in me and through me to touch my world with the LOVE of Jesus…help me surrender to YOU and YOU alone…help me lay aside my selfishness and seek YOUR will…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
