Long Arms

I heard a great sermon last Sunday about David and Goliath. The preacher made a great analogy between problems that we deal with and the problem David dealt with (Goliath).

Like Goliath, our problems can seem huge, intimidating and overwhelming. They confront us daily. They are never far from our minds. Sometimes there is no way we can handle them by ourselves.

Sometimes we look at situations in our life and think, "How is this ever going to work out? It's impossible."

Moses did the same thing. He was leading God's people in the wilderness. God provided manna for the people daily, but the people started complaining, wishing they had meat to eat. God told Moses He would give the people what they wanted - they would eat meat every day for an entire month.

Here's where the impossible situation arises: Moses was leading six hundred thousand people - in the wilderness. He could not figure out a way to handle this situation, he wondered if all the flocks and herds were killed and all the fish in the sea were caught, would even that be enough?

The 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."
Numbers 11:23

I love that verse. It puts problems in perspective - not that they are small problems, but there's nowhere that God can't reach.

Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God."
Luke 18:27
