God's Character and Limits

We all know that many "things" have limits!   There is a limit to how long our computer will last or until our vehicle quits.  There is a limit to how tall we will grow, and even a limit to how much our stomach can hold.   There are limits to our budgets, yes?   Of course, we cannot forget the importance of speed limits!   When we think about God, do we find ourselves thinking limits are in his characteristics?
If we believe there are limits, we are trying to fashion God into being something less, and we are falling short in believing who are true God really is!  
God is not only powerful, He is all-powerful.  He is not only holy, He is infintely holy.  He is not only merciful, He is infinitely merciful.  He not only KNOWS, He knows all things.   God is indeed infinite in all of His perfections.  The Scriptures reveal all of the points we need to NOTICE about our omnipresent, loving God.
Finally, we might find out people think of God as some kind of "ordinary God"?    Their belief in something ordinary doesn't create much reponse in them.   Friends, family and neighbors need us to intervene (maybe?) to bring more knowledge of our divine, holy Father who brings grace, peace and reigns forever!  He is far from ordinary!!!  We certainly can't count the hairs on our head, and yet He knows.   Ponder all of this today.  Use the prayer here we have for you.
Prayer to use today:  
   Heavenly Father, today I recognize you are ALL, you know ALL, you put together ALL plans.  Show me how to better love you as not something ordinary, but to love you for being the Almighty One, the creator of heaven and earth!   Praise and glory to you for the
extravagent and endless gifts you bestow upon us. Amen

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
