No Limit to His Power

Today's Scripture

“Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save...” (Isaiah 59:1, NKJV)

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

When the Israelites were in the desert headed toward the Promised Land, they had manna to eat each day. After a while, they complained to Moses that they didn’t have any meat to eat. Moses went to God and He said, “Moses, I’m going to give you meat not for one day or five days or twenty days, but for a whole month.”

Moses said, “God, that’s impossible. There are two million people out here. Even if we butchered all of our flocks, all of our herds, we wouldn’t have that much meat.”

God answered back, “Moses, is there any limit to My power?” He was saying, “Just because you don’t see a way, Moses, doesn’t mean that I don’t have a way. All I have to do is shift a few things around, and I can bring it to pass.” And sure enough, in Numbers 11:31, “God shifted the wind and brought quail in from the sea and caused them to fall into their camp.” Notice they didn’t even have to go out and hunt or fish. The quail came to them. They just went outside and picked up what they wanted. What am I saying? God knows how to shift things so that blessings come to you. There is no limit to His power. So get ready to see those open doors of blessing in your life this year!

A Prayer for Today

Father, thank You for Your limitless power at work in my life. I know that Your hand is not too short for You are able and mighty to do great works in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
