No Limits

"Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?" - Exodus 15:11

"Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?" - Psalm 113:5–6

There is none like our God. The God of the Bible is incomparable, infinitely above his creation. To say that anyone or anything is like him is to try to express the unlimited in limited terms. Any comparison will fall short. Just as the authors of Scripture searched for adequate human language to apply to heavenly understandings, we find ourselves ill equipped to express God’s perfections. But we must still endeavor to try.

Like the Israelites with their sandals still damp from the sand of the Red Sea shoreline, we feel the weight of the question that hangs in midair: “Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like you, majestic in holiness, awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11). The psalmist, too, marvels: “Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?” (Psalm 113:5–6).

The answer, of course, is God alone! Creation, existing within the limits of time and space, cannot rival, much less fully articulate, the splendors of a limitless God.

"Beyond Our Limitations"
- poem by M.S.Lowndes

Lord, we need to move beyond
This place that we are in
To touch your very heart, O God
To have your love within

We need to move beyond the limits
We've placed upon our lives
To move into more of you
Revealed through Jesus Christ

Help us to keep pressing on
As, by faith, we take more steps
To really conquer our inner selves
To know you with more depth

Help us, Lord, to overcome
To be focused more on you
No matter how hard it gets for us,
We need to press on through

Though Satan rises with hell's fury
With vengeance to devour,
We pray, O God, you'll arise in us
And fight with holy power

For greater are you within us
Than the enemy of our souls
For you have power and might, O God
And your Spirit is in control

We know the victory shall be ours
Though for now the heat is on
Help us, Lord, to not give up
For by this you make us strong

You will sustain us in your love
Through what we're going through
And deliver us the other side
Victorious in you!

Prayer: 
I am ready, Lord. Ready to take my focus off of the world, and to put it back onto You! You are sovereign, omnipotent, Beginning and End. With You I can do anything! In You I have no limits! Amen.
