No Limits

by Beth Vogt @BethVogt

I like hanging around people who make me think.

And that’s one of the reasons I like my friend Rachel Hauck. She makes me think. Big thoughts. Braver thoughts. Bolder thoughts. 

She makes me open my eyes wider and look for God, and all the while it’s like she’s whispering in my ear, “He’s right there, Beth. Can’t you see Him? Look!”

Rachel’s heart is passionate for God — she has an ardent, intense faith that drives everything she does and says. And when she says there are no limits with God, she means it.

Do I live like that? Do I look at God — who He says He is — and say, “There are no limits with You, Lord . . .  well, except for that one thing I’m asking of you. That one area of my life I need to change. That one prayer I’ve been praying. That one unforgivable person. That one unbreakable sin. But other than that — absolutely no limits!

Here’s the truth — and Rachel got it right: God is either limited … or He’s not.

And He’s not.

How does that change things?

In Your Words: Which economy are you doing business in: the world’s economy, which limits God — and often denies Him completely? Or God’s economy where there is no such thing as limitation? Why do you need God to be limitless today?

Do I live like God is limitless? @BethVogt on @EdieMelson (Click to Tweet)

  1. I admit it: I'm a settle-er. I settle for what I can do within my own power -- which isn't much. I need to act as I believe: that God's power is limitless and He is in control. I am not.

    Thanks, Beth!

    1. Angie: I've watched you this past year and you are believing more and more in God's limitless power!

  2. I need a friend like your friend Rachel in my life! Thanks for sharing. And I need to invest more in God's limitless economy.

    1. Ingmar,
      I love how Rachel challenges me. My friends often expand my faith in God.
