I placed the sand for the boundary of the sea, a perpetual barrier beyond which it cannot pass and by an everlasting ordinance beyond which it cannot go? And though the waves of the sea toss and shake themselves, yet they cannot prevail [against the feeble grains of sand which God has ordained by nature to be sufficient for His purpose]; though [the billows] roar, yet they cannot pass over that [barrier].
Jeremiah 5:22 (AMP)
We have barriers in life, too. Yet, how many times have I chosen to try to cross the barriers only to find myself floundering and sinking in the ocean of life. God gives us His boundaries in His Word and we must respect them and live by them if we don't want the waves of life to bury us. It would do us all well to live within the boundaries.
