They turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel (Psalm 78:41, KJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
God is a god of increase. He wants to take you to new levels and higher heights. But sometimes, its easy to get stuck in a rut and just settle for status quo. Sometimes we think, Well, Ive reached my limits. Ive gone as far as I can go. This is as happy as Ill ever be. But if were going to continue to increase and really experience Gods best, we have to align our thinking with Gods thinking.
Its interesting that in this scripture, the people limited the Holy One of Israel. Think about that. You and I can actually limit the all-powerful, Creator of the universe. How? By our thinking. What we believe either opens the door for God to move or it closes the door. God is limited in our lives by what we believe. So many people dont even realize that its their own wrong thinking that keeps them in mediocrity.
Today, why dont you take the limits off by choosing to believe God?! Feed your faith by studying His Word. Keep an open heart and mind before Him. Allow Him to work in your life and watch Him open up doors of blessing that youve never seen before!
A Prayer for Today
Father God, today I choose to believe You. I take the limits off by trusting that You have good plans for my future. I invite You to search my heart and remove anything that isnt pleasing to You. I bless You today and always in Jesus name. Amen.
