Are you limiting God?

Lately I’ve been directed to verses about God’s plans and provision. Before I go on I want to be clear that I do not believe in the name it and claim it theology that says just believe and claim what you want and God like a magic genie will grant your every wish. 

Yesterday’s devotion included these verses:

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
2 Corinthians 9:8, “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (NIV)
Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)
 
God does promise to meet our needs not all our wants. 
 
Recently I’ve been looking forward to something new. We’ve been looking for a new house, new opportunities, something to look forward to and I think that I have been limiting what God could do. The houses we look at at all in great need of something. The opportunities I’m looking at are just enough. 
 
This morning I was thinking that my planning, seeking etc may be getting in the way of the abundance He may have in store for me.  Ephesians 3:20-21 say that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more that we can image. Today I will try to stop imagining what He will do because the Bible says I can’t. 
 
 
 
Instead today I will choose to sit back, trust in Him and watch Him do His thing in my life and in yours.
