His Boundaries = His Best

“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places, surely I have a delightful inheritance.” Psalm 16:6 (NIV)

While we may at times feel boxed in or stifled – boundary lines are actually our helpers. Like coloring in the lines creates a beautiful picture, living within the boundaries of God’s design positions us for His delight. When we resist the urge to shortchange our morning with Jesus and recharge, we feel empowered regardless of the challenges. When we keep distractions in check and not allow them to sidetrack us from God’s plan, we feel empowered regardless of our success level. When we choose to honor His commands (God’s boundaries), we are empowered even in the midst of much needed grace. And oh how we need His grace – our natural tendency is to step over the line declaring our independence. Removing the boundary, we move ahead unprotected and vulnerable – charting a journey God never intended.

We often deceive ourselves that control is elusive and we can’t own it, but the real question is – are we yielding to God’s control or fighting for our control? Wouldn’t it be awesome if we accepted the boundary lines God has established for each of us? Instead of being destructive or resistant, we would naturally flow with what He knows is best.

Your lines and my lines will probably look very different, but God is great at establishing individualized plans to empower our lives. He knows where to place those lines that will shape, transform and position us to receive His inheritance.

“Sweet Jesus thank You for the boundaries You have established in my life – protecting and positioning me for Your best.”

For His Glory
