Know Your Boundaries

You set a boundary they cannot cross.

(Psalm 104:9 NIV)

Isn’t it funny how someone can get mad and speed past you, but you all end up at the same red light together? No matter how careless someone might be on the road, they still have to obey the law. It’s called boundaries.

God has set boundaries too. One of my favourite passages in Scripture says that God has set a firm boundary for the seas (Psalm 104:9). See, even when it seems like we’re getting our way in life and getting ahead of others, there eventually comes a time when God will make us stop at a red light like everyone else. He will set a limit to our plans to teach us that He is still in control. And at the red light, we’ll have to stop and yield to His plan for our lives. So let’s know our limits because God has set a boundary we can’t cross.

“God’s boundary lines show us where it’s safe to go & set our hearts free.” –Renee Swope
