3 Ways God Is Not Limited

“Our God has boundless resources.”

– A.B. Simpson


One of God’s unlimited ways comes from His omniscience. That means there is nothing that God doesn’t know.  We can put it this way; “Has it ever dawned on you, that nothing’s ever dawned on God?” In other words, God has never learned anything new at any time because He already knows everything, and that includes the future, so God is not limited by what is knowable, and is not limited by what we don’t know (which is very much!).


God is also not bound to place in time and space. He can be in multiple places at one time, much as the Holy Spirit can be.  Of course the Holy Spirit is also God, and He is already all around the world because He is living in Christians all around the world…and all at the same time! How that works, I have no idea, but that’s because He is God and my finite mind can never hope to comprehend the infinite, such as God is.


Obviously, Genesis 1:1 gives us a hint about the omnipotent (all-power) power of God. He created the heavens and the earth out of nothing. He didn’t consult anyone, He didn’t need help, but simply spoke and the worlds existed (Psalm 33:6; Heb 11:3). That’s because God’s Word has effectual power to do what He sends it out to do, as Isaiah the Prophet writes, “so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).


We know from the Bible that God has no limits, but there are two things at least that God cannot do; God cannot lie (Num 23:19; Heb 6:18), and God cannot sin because He is holy. Everything in His nature is pure, holy, and right. God has no limits, but we certainly do, so to Him we must run and seek the Savior after repentance and faith. He has the power to save. That’s the greatest need we have.
