Don’t Limit The Power of God

Moses was blown away with what God said He would do, and this was partially due to the fact that Moses was looking through the lens of man’s physical limitations. But I believe that because we think so logically, we just find it very challenging to see beyond that. Let’s think about how God settled this for Moses, then think about the mountains in our own lives and how we need to surrender those apparent ‘impossibilities’ to the Master.

Bible Reference: Numbers 11:21-23
Translation: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Bible Text: 21 Moses said, “There are 600,000 soldiers here, and you say, ‘I will give them enough meat to eat for a whole month!’ 22 If we were to kill all the sheep and cattle, that would still not be enough to feed this many people for a month. And if we caught all the fish in the sea, it would not be enough for them!”
23 But the Lord said to Moses, “Don’t limit my power! You will see that I can do what I say I can do.”

So I gathered that perhaps the key to why Paul felt like it was important to link his authority to that given by Jesus Christ, is that his primary mission would be to share the Gospel with the folk he would minister to. For us, that seems so logical when we consider the meetings that we attend to hear the preaching of the Gospel, or the teaching of the Gospel, or we visit the sick or unchurched to share the Good News of the Gospel. It’s easy to conclude that the most important thing about us, as Christians, is that we are committed to go out and preach the Good News of Jesus Christ! I know, you’re not a preacher, right? Well guess what, might I remind you that in the same way you can’t stop telling others how you lost that weight, or about the beauty aids you use, or the wonderful recipe you found, why not also tell them the Good News of Jesus Christ – the One who died for them so that they might have eternal life in heaven? You see, the ‘preacher’ is not just the pastor who stands before you on Sunday mornings. Telling the Good News is like ‘preaching’ the Good News to hungry and needy ears. Try telling God what you feel your assignment is in His earthly kingdom, and ask Him to strongly correct any misunderstanding you might have. Try revising your bio to include who you are in Christ first and foremost. It might open the doors of opportunity for you to ‘preach’ in your interview for a job, or at public meetings!!! Why hide the fact that you are a servant of the Great I Am?

PRAYER: Lord, we have faith, but every day we need more, for we struggle to see beyond the limitations of our own eyes. I believe that each reader of this devotional will face mountains, or rivers of some form today. Oh that we might constantly be reminded that greater is He that lives inside of us than he that is in this world. In fact, You, Mighty God, created the mountains and the rivers, so You control them. Lord, as You look on feeble man today, please once again touch and encourage your children to keep our eyes fixed on You, our all-powerful God, through whom all things are possible! AMEN!
