Sacred boundaries.

Removing boundaries set by God caused problems in ancient times, violating sacred inheritances. People often tried to gain more land by infringing on another’s property. The Lord wants the ancient traditions preserved, not moved.

As a crafter, I rent a space from a local retailer to sell my wares. Each vendor has a designated amount of square footage to occupy. People often try to take some of their neighbor’s space, especially if they have an empty spot. Protecting my boundaries means keeping my area full and ensuring my neighbors don’t encroach on my territory.

Testing the limits, no matter what the boundaries, occurs naturally with humans. We always want more, not satisfied with what God gives us. Respecting boundaries and trusting the Lord’s provision will help us live contented lives.

Don’t cross the boundaries God sets for you. Ask the Lord to expand your territory instead of trying to do it yourself.

Lord, forgive us for encroaching on someone else’s physical or emotional boundary. Help us to respect other’s lines in the sand and trust You to expand our territories. IJNIP. Amen
