Yes, again and again they tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel —Psalms 78:41
God has no limitations. Nothing is too hard or impossible for Him. We are limited by our human weakness, just as clouds limit the sun. God is able to give us all that we need—all that He has for us, all that He wants to accomplish in us, and through us. It is impossible for God to run out of resources on our behalf—He will simply create whatever is needed as we wait on Him.
Just as we give power to the devil by believing his lies, we limit God by our unbelief. What is tempting God, but our attempt to prove and try Him through our unbelief. We make the Word of God of no effect by the traditions of man that have been handed down to us. And for those who are of the law, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect. The promises of God don’t come through the law—being religious is a poor and ineffective substitute for having faith in the limitless One.
Since we walk by faith and not by sight, we need to cast off any unbelief. God’s word is true, His promises are yes and amen to all those who believe. Let God give you a revelation of any law or tradition within yourself that is making your faith void and ineffective.
Take time to commune with God in your heart and let Him reveal His deeper truths to you, found in His Word.
The Hebrew (Old Testament) word for revelation is Chazown— meaning; vision, oracle, prophecy (divine communication), a sight (mentally), i.e. a dream.
The Greek (New Testament) word is apokalypsis—meaning; laying bare, a disclosure of truth, instruction, concerning things before unknown, manifestation, to be revealed, enlighten.
Webster’s dictionary defines the word revelation as an act of communicating divine truth, something that is revealed by God to humans, enlightenment.
For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ. —Galatians 1:12
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, —Ephesians 1:17
