THE CIRCLE MAKER—PART 2
“CIRCLE MAKERS ARE RISK TAKERS!”
Pastor Andy Shaffer—November 18, 2012
Ephesians 3:20—“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory…forever and ever!”
Faith is being willing to make yourself look foolish for God!
The Quail Miracle: Numbers 11:1-35
Verse 1: “Now the people complained about their hardships…”
Verses 4-5: “If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost…But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!”
Verses 10-13: “Moses heard the people of every family wailing…He asked the Lord, ‘Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me?…Where can I get meat for all these people?’”
Verse 21: “Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, ‘I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!’”
Verse 23: “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.’”
Verses 31-32 “Now a wind went out from the Lord and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers (about 6 bushels). Then they spread them out all around the camp.”
“A day’s walk” = 15 miles = 700 square miles
10 homers x 600,000 men = 6 million homers = 105 million quail!
Question: “Is there any limit to My power?”
Truth: “God is infinitely bigger than your biggest problem or biggest dream!”
What’s the next step of faith I need to take?
