“They will tell the world of the lavish splendor of your kingdom and preach about your limitless power.”
Psalm 145.11 TPT
Psalm 145.11 TPT
I recently drove, one way, from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Los Angeles, California: it was a total of 787 miles. There’s a lot of open space between the two cities, to say the least. All along the highways, I was constantly mindful of the speed limit signs posted. Despite my desire to arrive home as quickly as possible, I was determined not to get a speeding ticket. I kept thinking to myself, “If there were no restrictions—no limits—then I could get from here (Albuquerque) to there (Los Angeles) a lot faster.”
Life—like the highway—can have limitations. In some seasons of our lives, we self-impose our own limits. At other times, we accept the limitations from others. And, rather than our lives flourishing and blossoming in the things God desires for us to be and become, we remain stifled and frustrated, void of purpose and passion.
What would it look like if we lived our life without limitations, and in the full expression of The Transcendent and all He desires for us? From our giving, to utilizing our gifts, to building up and strengthening others in their faith, to offering Him our best, and to advancing His message and mission? What if we moved to the rhythm of God’s grace, rather than being paralyzed from our past mistakes; what if we took risks to advance God’s name, rather than play it safe and stuck to what’s familiar to us; and, what would it look like if we had the audacity to see a future for our families, friends, and faith communities nestled in beauty, not brokenness?
The theme of Psalm 145:11 speaks to a time and season when the people of God join together in worship and collective action to bare witness to the might and power of our limitless God. Psalm 145 identifies God as having the capacity to care for His people, of raising people to meet their potential, and of calling them to advance beyond what they could ever ask or imagine.
