WE SERVE AN UNLIMITED GOD
God is infinite. God is all-powerful, all-knowing,
all-capable. There are no limits restricting God. Yet despite
this, to their own harm His followers tend to limit the power of
God by erroneous thinking. We will look at some promises of
God's word that will dispel that anti-biblical thinking and
open you up to receiving the unlimited blessings of God.
Psalm 78:40-43 ...they vexed the Holy One of Israel.  They
did not remember his power - the day he redeemed them from the
oppressor,  the day he displayed his miraculous signs in
Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan. Vs. 41, KJV Yea, they
turned back and tempted God, and LIMITED the Holy One of
The word "limited", used by the King James Version, is
rendered differently in various translations. However, the verses
surrounding verse 41 certainly make a good case for the use of
"limited" in this context. Israel diminished their
expectations of our unlimited God.
"They did not remember His power...  His miraculous
signs in Egypt, His wonders..."
- In effect, they
put their own limits on God's intervention in their lives by
failing to remember His historically demonstrated power, signs,
- Like Israel of
old, we too often "limit [God]". Not necessarily
deliberately, but we still often diminish our expectations of His
unlimited power on our behalf.
- We consider Him
as less than omnipotent.
- We doubt His
constant willingness to bless.
- We do "not
remember His power ... His miraculous signs ... His
- We forget:
"I am the Lord; I change not!" (Malachi 3:6, KJV) He is
forever the same all-powerful God who delights in blessing His
Jesus healed all who came to Him in faith. The apostle Peter healed
individuals and the multitudes. The apostle Paul had a remarkable
record of ministering divine healing. Philip had great
healing's in Samaria. God through a disciple named Ananias
healed Paul's blindness.
Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food
and water. I will take away sickness from among you...
- Not just Jesus,
but believers consistently healed the sick.
- Do not limit
God to healing only while Jesus walked the earth.
- Do not limit
God to healing only through apostles. In fact, it is the honor
and privilege of believers to lay hands on the sick and to see
the sick recover (Mark 16:17-18).
"If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God
and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his
commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of
the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who
- For the
worshiper of God, He is the Lord who will take sickness from
- This taking
away of sickness is one of God's blessings for the worshiper
- It is also one
of God's benefits for His children - Psalm 103:2-3 Praise the
LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits -  who
forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.
- Let "ALL
your diseases" mean exactly that! Don't limit God in His
desire to heal you.
THE MIRACULOUS -
- For the godly
believer, God is not the Afflicter-With diseases, but the
- A sick lady
once told me: "Maybe God is not willing to heal me
quickly, but rather is teaching me through this and is blessing
others by my example." No! Otherwise, why then (in her
erroneous way of thinking) would she frustrate God's supposed
plan by seeking medical help if God was trying to teach her a
lesson through the sickness? Hers was unsound
- In contrast to
that sick lady's faulty conclusions, Jesus said to the leper:
"I am willing!" (Mark 1:41) Don't limit the Lord in
the realm of healing. He is willing to heal!
Do you think of miracles as only for "Bible days", or do
you believe that miracles are for you today?
2 Kings 4:1-7
... Elisha said, "Go around and ask all your neighbors
for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few.  Then go inside
and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the
jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side." ... 
When all the jars were full, she said to her son, "Bring me
another one." But he replied, "There is not a jar
left." Then the oil stopped flowing.  She went and told
the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your
debts. You and your sons can live on what is left."
"I am the Lord; I change not!" (Malachi 3:6,
- Remember: Jesus
Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews
13:8). Jesus performed miracles in the first century; He is
"the same today" and still does miracles in the 21st
- Neither God the
Father nor Jesus Christ His Son has changed. They worked miracles
among the people in times of old; they continue to work miracles
in modern times.
- Don't limit
God's miraculous acts only to days gone by.
- Also, do not
limit the extent of what God can do.
GOD'S PROVISION -
- Don't limit
God's ability to provide supernaturally. Through the prophet
Elisha, God was going to provide a miraculous supply of valuable
oil for the destitute widow.
- He told her to
borrow empty jars, and "don't ask for just a few."
Elisha understood God's unlimited ability and His unlimited
care for His people. God miraculously filled every single jar
brimful and delivered the widow from her poverty.
- Do you need a
miracle in your life today? Don't ask for just a little of
God's help. Don't limit the extent to which Almighty God
can help you.
- If the Lord
says "Come", then you, like Peter, can walk on the
water (Matthew 14:29).
- f you encounter
a demon-possessed person, you can cast the demon out in
Jesus' Name without waiting to call the church's
- Why? - It's
God's miraculous power through you.
- Don't limit
God and what He can do for you and through you.
GOD'S PROTECTION -
- Remember Jesus
miraculously multiplying the loaves and fish and feeding
thousands as a result. He's the "same yesterday and
today..." (Hebrews 13:8).
Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22 on Mount Moriah -
- Genesis 22:14
"Jehovah-Jireh...The Lord will provide." And God
miraculously provided a ram for the sacrifice.
4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his
riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
- (In context, to
the giving believer) God will supply all your needs.
- Let your
"ALL" be "ALL". Don't limit God in the
realm of His provision for you. His bounty is

Don't limit the Holy One of Israel!
