Again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.

Psalm 78:41 (NKJV)

The psalmist was speaking about the Jewish nation and the way in which they had consistently tempted their God and limited what he could do for them because of their lack of faith. Is there not a danger that we can also, inadvertently, place limits on what he can do for us? It’s rather like Mary and Martha, both of whom mentally put limits on the power of the Lord Jesus to raise their brother from the dead. ‘Lord, if you had been HERE, my brother would not have died.’ (Jn.11:21)
Let us never forget that his power is absolutely unlimited!
