Out Of Bounds
Ex. 23:31a “And I will set your boundaries…”
In the bible, in the Old Testament, God lead His people out of slavery in Egypt. As He brought them to the land He wanted to give them, He told them that He would set the boundaries for their land. (Ex. 23:31a) We all have boundaries. They define who we are and what we do. They can also define who we are not and what we won’t do.
Do you ever step outside of the boundaries that God has put in your life? He will let you lead yourself. You can go wherever you like and completely ignore Him and break through the boundaries. God knows we cannot be completely free if we go our own way and do our own thing. Left to ourselves, we tend to make the wrong choices and suffer the consequences. When we go our own way, we distance ourselves from the very people God has called us to that can help and encourage us. When we go our own way, we are unprotected from the enemy, Satan who desires to tear us apart and kill us. (1Pet. 5:8) Just like God freed His people from Egypt, we need God to keep us safe and free us from things that can enslave us. And we need His Holy Spirit to lead us along the right path. (Ps.23:3) You see, we can only be completely free by yielding to Jesus and allowing Him to set all of our boundaries and keep us there.
He is always AVAILABLE to us.
He is always AWARE of our needs.
He is always ABLE to help us.

Thank you, Father for being our Savior, Provider and Protector. We know that we make bad decisions sometimes. We confess that we need your help to define our boundaries and strength to keep us within the limits that you set for us. We trust you and are thankful for who You are and all that You can do. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
