Question the Lord Asked [1]: Is the LORD’S power limited?


Read: Numbers 11:23 The LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’S power limited? Now you shall see whether My word will come true for you or not.”

Examine: Israel on the journey to Canaan, there were foreigners traveling with the Israelites. They had a strong craving for meat, and even the Israelites themselves began to complain: “If only we could have some meat! In Egypt, we used to eat all the fish we wanted, and it cost us nothing. Remember the cucumbers, the watermelons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic we had?  But now our strength is gone. There is nothing at all to eat—nothing but this manna day after day!”

Now tell the people, ‘Purify yourselves for tomorrow; you will have meat to eat. The LORD has heard you whining and saying that you wished you had some meat and that you were better off in Egypt. Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will have to eat it. You will have to eat it not just for one or two days, or five, or ten, or even twenty days, but for a whole month, until it comes out of your ears, until you are sick of it. This will happen because you have rejected the LORD who is here among you and have complained to him that you should never have left Egypt.’”

Moses said to the LORD, “Here I am leading 600,000 people, and you say that you will give them enough meat for a month? Could enough cattle and sheep be killed to satisfy them? Are all the fish in the sea enough for them?” “Is there a limit to my power?” the LORD answered. “You will soon see whether what I have said will happen or not!”

Application: Lord led them and Lord provided food for His people, but see how the craving of foreigners became the craving of Israelities. We need to be vey careful on who is in our influencing circle.

People became very bitter, angry and complaining, how a small craving went out of control. Great warning what we desire outside God will can lead us to great folly.

Moses asking the Lord how is it even possible to fed these many people in wilderness with meat for 1 month, the question Lord asked “Is there a limit to my power?”

Decision: Lord let me always look at you way and trust you provisions, let me never be influences by the desires and craving of people of the world. Lord whatever situation let me or my family ever complain. Lord let not desires of the world entangle us and make us complain.

Father Lord what we go through, we see no way out, I really want to hear the sweet voice of the Lord – “Is there a limit to my power?” – And dwell and draw strength from it.
