The rate constant k is just an experimentally determined value for a specific reaction at a specific temperature (therefore different reactions have different rate constants). It is also independent of concentration or concentration change. Unless temperature (and/or activation energy) changes, k will remain the same. Therefore, it limits the reaction rate: the higher the k value, the faster the reaction proceeds (therefore making the reaction rate higher).
