Limiting the Holy One

Psa 78:41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy
One of Israel.

Speaking of the children of Israel in the wilderness and their vacillation, the
Psalmist tells how they limited the Lord.

It's true, we limit God by our behavior. There is so much He'd like to do for
us and through us, but we tie the Almighty's hands by our sin and unbelief.

Jesus experienced this as He returned home to Nazareth and could do no
mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Imagine that, the almighty, sovereign God of creation allows Himself to be
limited by our actions.

Imagine also, that if we would just get right and do the right thing God
could and would do the miraculous on every hand and we would see His
power manifested in our lives on a regular basis.

Let us not limit the Holy One of our salvation, but simply believe and live
