Limiting God

matthew-14_17

But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” (Matthew 14:17, NLT)

I like the realm of the possible. It’s safe, predictable, and mostly, under my control.

How many times have I missed out on what God wanted to do because I limited myself to living only in this realm? How often have I limited God’s work in me and through me with the words, “But we have only…

  • …this much resources,
  • …this much time,
  • …this much influence

And I tune God out. Because it’s impossible. Because I can’t see.

Father, I don’t want to live a life limited by what I can do. I want to experience all you have for me. Help me to hear your voice and to follow your lead.
