Have you ever felt as though your hands were tied? Have you ever thought, "I can't do anything about my situation. I don't see how this can ever work out in my life"? Perhaps you have a big dream in your heart, but you don't have the resources or the connections to make it happen. There's one obstacle after another. Let me remind you today that your hands may be tied, but God's hands are never tied! There is no limit to His power on this earth! Don't limit your options in life by what you see in your situations. Don't decide it can't happen because of what you see. "For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7). We're not limited to what's in our hands.
Psalm 78 says that when the Israelites were in the wilderness, "They vexed the Holy One of Israel because they did not remember His power." Another translation says that they "limited the Holy One of Israel." They didn't remember that He was limitless. They didn't remember that He redeemed them from Pharaoh with miraculous signs and wonders in Egypt or that He split the Red Sea for them. They didn't remember! Psalm 78 goes on to say that because they limited God by not remembering His works, they turned back and were unfaithful to Him. The word "limited" does not apply to God, but it applies to what they put on themselves. They took their limitations and tried to put them on a limitless God, and that caused them to turn back.
We cannot put limits on God! If we're going to accomplish the things that God wants for us, we have to be single-minded about His Word and power. We have to remember who He is. He's the God who parts our Red Seas! He's the God who brings water out of our rocks! He's the God of the impossible! His hands are not tied. Don't turn back. Take His hand and draw your strength from your limitless God!
