Perfection Has Limitations

Even perfection has its limits, but your commands have no limits.

— Psalm 119:96 

The human kind of perfection has its limitations. The best pastor could let you down. The best doctors can tell you there’s no hope for your situation. The best spouse can walk away from it all. The works of man will undoubtedly, regardless of how perfect it may seem, have limitations. Our God’s commands, however, have no limits. 

When God speaks, it overrides everything that would seem natural to us. His commands have no boundaries, expiration dates or biases. If God commanded you to be healed, nothing in heaven, earth or hell can limit the results. If God commanded you to be full of joy, it’s not restricted to a certain demographic or region. If you feel like your case is impossible, tell the devil to shut his mouth and remind yourself of what Psalm 119:36 says. When things look bleak remember Matthew 19:26 “Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” 

Don’t you dare put God in a box! If you’ve received a prophecy, a dream or a vision of what’s to come, don't talk yourself out of it! YOU may be limited but NOT OUR GOD. In one day He took the Israelites out a 400 year captivity! 400 YEARS in ONE DAY! Do you get that?! You may not have the money, but God’s resources are l i m i t l e s s ! Jeremiah 17:5 says, “This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD.” 

It doesn't benefit you ANYTHING to lean on the arm of man. Turn to God! Trust in Him. Obey Him. Rely on His limitless power! In Jesus’ name!
