Do we limit God?

Reading in Psalms 78, Asaph is retelling the story of the countless miracles God performed for the Children of Israel. How that the sea was divided, the plagues brought on Egypt, manna from heaven, he rained flesh upon them as they did eat, cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance. Through all this they continued to turn their backs on Him, Ps. 78: "Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel."
How many times, we, in our daily lives, limit God? I thought about this for awhile this morning and realized that I can pray and seek God, and ask for a miracle, but if I don't completely trust and believe God can do it, I am limiting Him. Think about how much greater the Children of Israel could have been if they took all restraints off of God and was fully obedient to Him. In Ps. 78:70 it says "He chose David also his servant.." God will find someone with a willing heart, to serve him and do his will. My prayer is that he will find that in me. There are No Limits on what God can do, if we will only believe!

Great post! Since we are logical beings, it is so 'human' of us to put a limit on the limitless God! Posts like these help us to put it in perspective! Thanks!
