Limit God?

Psalm 78:41 (NKJV) Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.

Can God be limited? The Bible reveals God as the omnipotent creator of all things, yet this verse tells us mere human beings can limit Him.

God had a plan from the beginning---to give dominion on the earth to humankind (Ge. 1:26). As a born-again believer, I have an avenue to God and all His power into my affairs. However, I can also limit His power in my life.

The Bible says in Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit." We exercise dominion by our words.

If you are a child of God, you are well protected. The greatest area of vulnerability is other people. The devil will often use people as a way into your life. When someone wrongs you, it is usually the devil behind it.

Many of us have been betrayed in the past. Often when this happens, we need to share it with someone. Sharing it with someone can be a critical part of the healing process, but we need to understand that our real enemy is the devil. Our sharing can often turn into cursing the people that hurt us. Although this may help us feel better in the short term, it does not put the devil where he belongs---under our feet.

When the enemy works through someone, they need God to break the chains of the devil. The best way to do that is to stop cursing them and bless them instead.

You may be asking, "Why would I ever want to bless my enemy?"

God said in Isaiah 57:19, "I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near, and I will heal him." You need to kick the real enemy, the devil, where it hurts by breaking his bondage over that person. God wants to heal those that hurt us. Release God into their life by declaring good fruit over them.

Be blessed!
