Limiting God

Preacher Brent's sermon was based on Psalm 78.
Theme: While God is not limited by evil, He is limited by His own followers.

Question: How do you limit God in your life?

1. When we forget the wonders and works of God, we limit His workings.

Read v. 11 and 42: They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

2. When we ask in our will, not in God's will. Unbelief limits the workings of God.

Pray "Lord, keep me from my desires." When we say "no" to God's plan, we limit His workings.

3. We limit God when we are "fair weather friends" using Him to our advantage. We limit Him when we are only half-way committed to His will.

Why go "all out" for God?

Not just for our own welfare, but for the good of future generations. vv. 5-7.
For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.
