Take the Limits Off

“For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.” Luke 1:37 (Amplified)

Sometimes we limit God with how we think He should bless us. He is an all-knowing and all-powerful God. There is nothing that He can not do. We like to give God instructions for how we want our blessings.

In his sermon today my pastor talked about God using “unconventional methods” to bless. In 1 Kings 17:1-7, God told Elijah to go to the brook called Kerith to hide. He had prophesied to the King Ahab who was a Baal worshiper the god who brought the rains and the harvest. So after learning that there would be no rain for several years, king Ahab and his wife Jezebel wanted to kill Elijah because no matter what the did, they could not make the rain come.

Elijah went to the place that God had told him to go to and here is where the story turns.  God told Elijah that the ravens would bring him food. You say, so what is so strange about this? Ravens are considered unclean; but God used them to bring food to Elijah daily. As long as he was at the Brook Kerith, the ravens brought his meals to him. Sometimes our help/blessings come from places we least expect. When we remove the limits we have placed on God He can bless us no matter what our situation is. His provisions for us go way beyond our narrow, limited expectations of what He can do.

Isaiah 55:8 (NKJV) says, “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.”

Take the limits off God and you just might find His hand of providence in some strange places.
