God Limits Himself

God Limits Himself

A clear and sunny day here on the farm in CT with early morning fog rising off the pond. Praise be to you, Lord God, Creator of all the beauty before us, beauty which shows us your great heart of love. You share all the reflected glory of your Being through your creation, through the vast variety of flowers and trees, colors and scents, creatures and shapes, landscapes and seas.

Your mind has no limit, your wisdom has no boundary; on the other hand, I praise you that your Character does have limits in the right places: in you there is no sin, no evil, no selfishness, no lying, no double-mindedness, no hypocrisy, no failure, no faithlessness. In you there is only goodness, purity and holiness.

I praise you that you also limit yourself by making promises: you give your Word and you always keep it. You make your vows, you fulfill them. All other possibilities are set aside and you bind yourself to your promised prophecies, always following through.

The choosing of Jesus to be the Savior of the world was your greatest promise, made before creation, and brought to pass at the right time. I give you praise and honor and glory for this marvelous Truth of your faithfulness, for this wonderful reality of your steady heart of truth and love.

And the calling of every person to become your child, while choosing those who will respond. In your wisdom and love you have done this. May we ever revel in you goodness and grace, remembering who we are in you, because of you!
