Setting Boundaries

Description

Boundaries are good, and if they are set in a healthy way, they bring peace and security.

From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts 17:26

God places boundaries on the nations, on nature, and on men. God appoints our times on this earth; he sets in motion where we end and someone else begins. Boundaries are good, and if they are set in a healthy way, they bring peace and security. Don’t be afraid to set boundaries in your life today.

Setting a boundary can be as simple as saying no to an outing with friends, because you don’t have the margin in your life. When we don’t set boundaries, we feel stressed and taken advantage of by people. That is no way to live. When you set boundaries there is a definite point of where you end and someone else begins. Ask God what is an area in your life where a boundary needs to be set. 

Prayer

Father, I give you this day and all that it brings. As I go about my day, show me any area where I need to set boundaries. Whether it is with my children, my husband, my family, or friends, give me the strength to set appropriate boundaries and help me to do it in love. Thank you for showing me that boundaries are good and for always leading by example. Amen
