Reading on prayer again this morning from Mark Batterson's book, "Circle Maker." I was struck by God's question to Moses (or to us): "Has the Lord's hand been shortened?" Or better, "Is there a limit to My power?"
In Numbers 11 the Israelites are tired of the manna and God has just promised to feed more than 600,000 men enough meat for a month. Moses expresses doubt about this, and so God asks, "Is there a limit to My power?"
Made me wonder if we don't often let the "how" of what God wants to do for us, get in the way of the "what" God wants to do for us.
But because God has no limit of power, then there is no big or small, no easy or difficult. The impossible is possible. The intangible is tangible. To an all-powerful God, my hardest problems that I pray about are quite easy for Him to solve.
No. There is no limit to God's power. Only a limit to my comprehension. Maybe our prayers should then include the prayer of a desperate father wanting a miracle for his child in Mark 9, "Lord, help my unbelief!"
