Reading Time: 2 minutes

A perpetually irritating friend or ally is always somewhat a nuisance. There are some naughty relationships like that. They just keep provoking you and testing your patience till you want out. After you have been grieved severally and you are brought into a place where it looks like there will be no change, you probably want to quit.

If this is done to you, you sure don’t want to stay too long among such people. There is a way you naturally move away from where you are being afflicted to where you will be celebrated. Nobody wants his or her head beaten all the time and that without cause. You, being on the receiving end, are not usually having a pleasant time.

What if I say that is what we often do to God? Take a look at this scripture:

How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert! Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel. They remembered not his hand, nor the day when he delivered them from the enemy.

Psa 78:40-42 (KJV)

Provoking God with acts of compromise in your relationship, grieving Him with repeated wrong acts in a deliberate fashion translates to turning back and tempting God, thereby limiting Him.

His desire is to bless and increase us. His desire is that the marriage institution He established becomes a reality in our lives. God is never the one bringing delay into your life, it is we that often keep tempting and limiting the Holy One of God.

The Message Translation puts it this way:

How often in the desert they had spurned him, tried his patience in those wilderness years. Time and again they pushed him to the limit, provoked Israel’s Holy God. How quickly they forgot what he’d done, forgot their day of rescue from the enemy,

Psa 78:40-42 (MSG)

My advice this morning: Quit limiting God to do what He wants to do through your disobedience and repeated errors.  Stop pushing Him to the limit with habitual sinful tendencies.

Allow Him to be God in your life.

May God grant you more understanding!

I will not provoke God to anger. I will not limit God

Pray that God shows you areas where you have been limiting him.

Ps 78:41 (ERV) Again and again they tested his patience. They really hurt the Holy One of Israel.

Stop limiting God through disobedience

Ps 78
