God Has No Limits


Read 2 Chronicles 23:1 through 26:8

Published: Jun 27, 2017

All the different things a smartphone can do make it an amazing device. Yet even with all the helpful apps and features, there are still people who ignore these perks and choose to use their cell phones only to make calls.

Christians can do a similar thing with God. Forgetting all the amazing power that God truly has, they only turn to God to give them what they need at the moment.

Instead of trusting that God could lead the nation of Judah to victory, King Amaziah hired soldiers from his northern neighbor Israel for a fairly large sum of money. The Lord sent a prophet to command the king to send these hired soldiers back home.

Amaziah asked the man of God, “But what about the hundred talents I paid for these Israelite troops?” The man of God replied, “The Lord can give you much more than that” (2 Chronicles 25:9).

Amaziah seemed more concerned about losing the money he paid than he was about pleasing God. The prophet had to remind him that God could provide resources and power far beyond money.

Thought for Today: Remember that with God all things are possible.

Articles & Resources for Church Workers

  • Starting a Greeter Program
    Four years ago I accepted the challenge of evangelism chairperson for our church. One of the first programs the pastor and I developed was the Sunday morning greeter program.
  • Motivating the Right Person into the Right Ministry
    One of the greatest challenges for most leaders is selecting and motivating the right people into the right ministry positions in hopes of minimizing turnover and frustration. Even in the smaller church with limited personnel, it is important to coordinate people and ministry as much as possible.
  • “I TRIED, BUT NO ONE EVER CALLED ME”
    “I tried, but no one ever called me” are painful words for a leader who has much work to do and not enough people willing to do it. These words are painful for the person who wanted to contribute, but was never called. These are also painful words for a person who is committed to helping people connect and contribute in meaningful ways within the church.
