Wisdom of Boundaries

(Kathy Gabler) — If anyone ever feels like God sets boundaries to demean or be unjust or cruel, they need some vitamin “G” as in “G”row up!  He sets boundaries wisely to set the stage for the truest expression of commitment, respect and honor in a lifetime.  It takes self-government to work within boundaries and that self-government develops maturity and character.  Character is a matter of righteous values and moral strength.  Character is essential to taste true fulfillment in your lifetime.  It will take character to keep you wherever purpose takes you.  I’ve known really gifted and skilled people who lost everything because they did not have the self-government and character to honor boundaries and protocol in relationships or career or finances or health.

Boundaries Give Order

While identity is the first basic need in helping see ourselves as God does, the second basic need for all of us is the need for affirmation and the third basic need for all humans is boundaries. Boundaries give us an order to function within to insure our safety and well-being. Boundaries would be one side of a coin and the other is self-government. (Kathy Gabler)

What Kind of man is This?

JesusCalmsStorm(Kathy G.) They said of Jesus: “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” (Mt.8:27)  This is the kind of man that exemplifies a son that creation groans for, the kind of man that believes God delegated authority to mankind in Genesis that is still in effect.  Jesus lived as the kind of man that would overcome opposing circumstances and even natural boundaries to bring circumstances into alignment with God’s will, the kind of son who does what he sees the Father doing.  We can do this.  Dominion is doable.

In Bounds Or Out Of Bounds

The third thing the devil did was offer Jesus a way to get what He came after by getting out of bounds on a shortcut. FenceBoundsSatan offered to not oppose Him and give Him the kingdoms of this world (Rev. 11:15). Jesus knew the kingdoms of the world were to be His, but He knew better than to worship Satan to get them. Jesus was a mature son of strong character, and He was so intent upon obedience and self-government, that He couldn’t be tempted by success any other way. Adam and Eve did fall for the temptation to get out of bounds and reach beyond the will of God. Then, evidently, they did not truly repent because they passed on the “thinking of their heart” to the next generation. Cain cracked his own mirror also by reaching outside God’s boundaries with a sacrifice that wasn’t acceptable. Then his self-worth plummeted and his self-government completely toppled when he murdered his brother.

Character To Keep You

boundariesThe 3rd question God asked Adam was if he’d eaten of the tree.  God wasn’t looking for information of course.  He was helping Adam realize the point of origin of this earthquake that cracked his self-image and damaged his self-worth was when he defied the boundaries.  If anyone ever feels like God sets boundaries to demean or be unjust or cruel, they need some vitamin “G” as in “G”row up!  He sets boundaries wisely to set the stage for the truest expression of commitment, respect and honor in a lifetime.  It takes self-government to work within boundaries and that self-government develops maturity and character.  Character is a matter of righteous values and moral strength.  Character is essential to taste true fulfillment in your lifetime.  It will take Character to keep you wherever purpose takes you.  I’ve known really gifted and skilled people who lost everything because they did not have the self-government and character to honor boundaries and protocol in relationships or career or finances or health.
