“Have you not put a hedge around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.” – Job 1:10 ESV
Hedge is the Hebrew word pronounced “sook”, and it means to fence up or shut in for formation, protection, or restraint. A hedge creates a boundary for the purpose:
- design – developing identity and purpose
- defense – protecting from outside sources
- detainment – to constrain from doing harm to self or others
As chaotic as our world may appear, everything operates according to basic principles. This includes the natural and the spiritual. Often we don’t fully understand what’s going on around us and we don’t understand the role that we play because we don’t know these rudiments. One of these important elementary rules is “boundaries”.
We can’t abound without boundaries. We can’t bind without boundaries. We can’t progress without a path, and a path without boundaries is no longer a path but a wide open desert. We can’t build without boundaries. We’re unprotected without boundaries. A life unbound disintegrates. A people without boundaries disperses. The bullseye of a target is marked by what? BOUNDARIES.
Join us on Sunday, October 4th, as I introduce the Biblical principle of “boundaries”. Over the next few weeks, we’ll build our understanding of boundaries, the path to abounding, and the power to bind. We’ll not only learn these basic principles but how they tie into the operation of our entire natural and spiritual universe.
Let’s grow together!
His love is better than life!
