The Constitution had limits to its power. Americans parted from Britain because King George became tyrannical and they no longer wanted a monarchy. To stray away as far as possible from a monarchy, the delegates created the Constitution and the new government around ideas where no one is too powerful.
There were three branches to ensure a separation of powers. Also, To ensure the government is effective and citizens' rights are protected, each branch has its own powers and responsibilities, including working with the other branches. While under rule of England, the Americans did not have this, so, they created their new government where there is a separation of powers to protect citizens.
Each branch checks and balances each other by making sure no one branch would be able to control too much.
