There are realizations in this world that all things come to an end. Whether those things are good or bad – they can’t last forever.
We mark our days by seconds, minutes, hours, months and years. A day begins and will end. The week begins and will end…the month, the year, the decade and the millennia.
We are limited ourselves in what we can do. We have skills, knowledge and resources, but there’s a limit to all of that.
Our capacity to love, to give, to earn, to share and to live has a limit. There’s an end date to just about everything.
Except for one very big, very important and very amazing thing.
There’s no limit to God.
Now, let’s think about that for a few minutes.
There’s no Limit to God’s Love
It’s part of his being, his character, and his nature. God is love. There’s no limit to the love that he demonstrates toward us. God gave of his very best, his very dearest for us. Willingly. This love, this free gift is offered to all. Whether your black, white, brown, yellow (you know those general terms we like to give ourselves); whether your tall, short or in between. Whether you’re attractive or not. Whether you’re healthy or have some health issues. Whether you’re ‘disabled’ or not. Whether your young or old; whether your rich or poor or in between. When God gives of His love He gives it to all – and All means All.
There’s no Limit to God’s Grace.
God is so very kind and patient. He knows exactly what our thoughts, motives, and actions are. We do face consequences to those actions. There has to be consequences. But, ultimately, if we’ve accepted God’s gift of Salvation – we are granted, Grace. Amazing Grace. There’s no limit to that.
There’s no Limit to God’s Kindness and Patience.
Time. God created it and he has appointed specific times in our line of history for events to occur. These timings are perfect. In all of His demonstration and love, God remains kind and patient. He gives everyone a chance to choose whether they’ll accept Him. God patiently waits for us not only to accept Him but also to learn and to grow. He’s the ultimate loving Father. There’s nothing you can do or say that will separate you from God’s love, grace, kindness, and patience. God is limitless.
So, when you face your difficulties and deadlines, all those things that make up the day-to-day routines of our lives. Think on this – meditate on this – God is limitless and He gives of Himself to us without limit.
Someday, those who believe, will see Him face to face and completely understand. But for now, while we’re still here let’s pause, let’s think and let’s fill our hearts with joy. We cannot put limits on God and shouldn’t try. We can’t let circumstances and events in life become bigger than they are and define us. What should define us is that we’re loved by God and for today, for the limit of time we have – we should demonstrate a glimpse, a spark, a glow of that love to others. Don’t you think they should know?
Just imagine for a moment now how amazing and wonderful it is to be loved by God. Imagine how complete and limitless it is. And in all this imagining and thinking – how can it define your day? How can it define you?
It’s your choice. Allow the joy of this knowledge to infuse you so that you just can’t help but live in joy…or choose to let the circumstances in your life color your day.
I choose the joy in the knowledge that God loves me – and His love is limitless!
