There are no obstructions or legions pitched out of hell that can block the supremacy of God. Who dares to stand in defiance before the One who stretched out the heavens; laid the foundations of earth; lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters; and, makes the clouds His chariot? (Psalm 104:3-5) If your faith is speckled with doubts and marred by fear, check to see if you’re connected to limited man, or to the Unlimited God, the One who walks upon the wings of the wind.
If God is for us, what can the limitations of man do against us?
If God so sees fit, He’ll open doors that man has determined to keep shut, and He’ll shut doors that man, in all his strength and influence, can’t open. If hell hounds are clenching your heels, God will hide you in the safety of His pavilion. If there’s a “red sea” blocking you, He’ll command the winds to whoosh the water aside; My LORD!
For in time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock (Psalm 27:5).
Unlimited faith is not restricted to limited means!
Unlike man, God has no limitations; therefore, if our faith is linked to His unlimited power—the sky is NOT the limit. The miraculous might supersede man’s logical thinking; but that doesn’t mean it’s unachievable when God can create a way out of nothing. We can’t depend on our own intellect or the abilities of others to come up with the right answers, but we can rely completely on God’s wisdom. His unlimited resources will never diminish. Humans can only go so far in whatever there are trying to achieve, but with God…
However, if we try to put God’s means and methods in a conventional box, we might miss out. Instead, of Him entering in through the front door, He might seep in through the vents. We must put our trust in Him no matter how His blessings come; or whom He chooses to deliver them by. Sometimes it’s too much for our brains to imagine what the unlimited God can do.
“… I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19)
I think we should spend more time praying for God to reveal His Majesty, and less time concentrating on what man can do against us. As we grow spiritually in our understanding of who God is, the clearer we’ll see people as lumps of animated clay—performing (for a short minute) on earth’s stage. Our faith should be in the One who made the clay.
Limited man vs. Unlimited God—No contest!
