Devotion Of The Day

Numbers 11:21-23 (NIV)
But Moses said,
"Here I am among six hundred thousand men
on foot, and you say, 'I will give them meat to...
eat for a whole month!'
Would they have
enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered
for them? Would they have enough if all the
fish in the sea were caught for them?"
LORD answered Moses, "Is the Lord's arm
too short? You will now see whether or not
what I say will come true for you."

The people were whining about not having
meat to eat. Moses was very discouraged.
God promised meat for a month along with
some valuable lessons. Moses just couldn't
see that it was possible. He looked out over
the camp and couldn't imagine how God
could do it. His response to God was an
exaggeration. Certainly all the fish in the sea
could have fed them. Even the flocks they
drove before them could have fed them.
When we are discouraged, even the practical
looks impossible.

God's response is worth memorizing and
keeping at hand when you think He has
promised more than can be delivered. Has
the omnipotent God lost some of His power?
Can't the One who created the world and
everything in it provide anything at anytime
He chooses? Is any thing out of His reach?
Don't limit the Eternal One! He can do
whatever He says He will do in keeping with
His perfect character.

This was going to be a lesson for Moses and
for you and me. You and I have seen what
God can do when we read these true stories.
We have seen what He has done in the lives
of people we know and in our own life. We
have seen that God can do what we
considered impossible. Never doubt God's
capability to do what He has promised. He is
able! You have seen it. You will see it again.
Trust Him, and climb out of your pit of doubt
up into the sunlight of faith.

of doing anything in keeping with His
