No Limit

Crazy days but I wanted to share a devotional written by Cheri Fuller on Proverbs 30:1-4.

Agur may have lacked wisdom, but he looked for answers in the right place.  He may not have had common sense, but he knew that there was One greater than himself.  Can God use us in spite of our limitations?  Absolutely!  What we lack in human ability we can find in God.  He has used the simple things of this world to confound the wise many times.  He called Moses, a man who feared public speaking, to lead a nation.  He promoted David, a shepherd boy, to the position of king.  He sent His own Son to be born in a small town and laid in a manger, just one more illustration of humble beginnings laced with destiny.  Though we cannot begin to compare with the Savior, we are instruments in the Father’s hands.  It is not your abilities that shape the world; it is God, who holds the wind in His fists and wraps the ocean in His cloak.  He is majestic and all-powerful!  Have you allowed your limitations to keep you from the destiny He has for you?  Then place yourself in the hands of the mighty God, for it is He who does great things.

Lord, who holds the wind in His fist and the oceans in His cloak?  It is you, precious Father.  You still the wind with your voice.  You are the creator of the stars.  You command angels and orchestrate the changing of the seasons.  It is you who created me and gave me purpose in life.  Look into my heart, Father, and make me a willing instrument in your hands.

How completely satisfying to turn from our limitations to a God who has none.  Eternal years lie in His heart.  For Him time does not pass, it remaims; and those who are in Christ share with Him all the riches of limitless time and endless year.  A.W. Tozer 

Blessings,

  1. We are limited, God is limitless. Then why do we worry? There should not be a reason to do so, is there? Because for me, I forget and get too focused on myself: my needs, my comfort, my security, have I mentioned my comfort?  If God is my focus then not only will I put myself in proper perspective but the worries will also shrink. The readings for today is still in 2 Kings. Chapter 6 found the Syrian army intent on capturing Elisha, who keeps foiling his plans. The king sent horses, chariots and a great any and they came by night and surrounded the city. Elisha's servant was worried when he woke up the next morning but Elisha told him not to be afraid for "those who are with us are more than those who are with them." (I love that part) Elisha also prayed, "O, Lord, please open his eyes that he may see." (Okay, this part I love even more) So the Lord opened the eyes of the yong man and he saw that the mountains were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. Wow!So how many of our fears come in the middle of the night like the Syrian army? Fears for our security, finances, children and relationships? And like the servant we wake up worried in the morning because the surrounding fears are all we see. O, Lord, open our eyes that we may see! You have surrounded us with Your presence. You hold us in the palm of your hands. You will never leave us nor forsake us. Help us to focus on You alone. Thank you for the shield of protection You place around Your children. We need not fear. Grateful,G & P>>

  2. Love this Mary Ann! Thank you for posting.G&P it is so true, the fears and weights of things so often come at night. I know that’s why when I am going through hard and stressful seasons sleep is sacrificed. I have a note on my computer now from Jesus Calling that says, “Pray about everything; then, leave the outcomes up to Me.” That is HUGE for me right now! I have read a little of the reading for today but not all the way through. May be bedtime before I get through it all, busy day with DS.
