our vehicles. When products are on sale, there is a limit to how many
of that particular product that we can purchase. Banks even have a
spending limit on how much of your own money you can spend or
withdraw in one day.
We put limits on our children to protect them. They have limits on how
long they can stay up at night, how long they can play video games and
we put a limit on how much sugar they can have. Without limits, this world
would be a lot worst than it is right now. Too much of a bad thing isn't good
for you, but sometimes too much of a good thing can turn into too much of
a bad thing.
When it comes to God, some of us don't realize that we are putting a limit
on God. Sometimes we do this with our own prayers. There are times that
we go to God in prayer like we are too shy to ask for what we need. When
we are in a financial situation, instead of saying "God I just need $30.00
more dollars to pay my electric bill", we should ask God to make a way for
us to have more than enough money to pay our bills. We complain that we
only have enough money to pay bills with nothing left over, but that's what
we keep asking God to do.
What if God wanted to give you $60.00 with $30.00 left over? If you only ask
for $30.00, then that is what you will get because that is what you asked for (Matthew 7:7). We put a limit on what God wants to give us when we say we
just need a certain amount of money. This pertains to other areas of our life
that we are seeking God's help as well.
Some of us seek God as if He has a limited supply that's only for what we
need and not for the things we want as well. Yes God said He shall supply
all our needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians
4:19), but God also said "Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall
find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you" (Matthew 7:7) and "And all
things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive
