The Light Daily Devotional – The Limit of what Men Can Do
Focus: The Limit of what Men Can do; the limit of a man
KEY WORD FOR TODAY
There is a limit to what a man can do in every facet of life, but God can do everything. Use whatever you can do to please God and at the same time bless the lives of those who come in contact with you.
“Man’s days are determined; you have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed.” (Job 14:5 NIV)
No matter how powerful you think you are, God who is the most powerful and He has set a limit to your life and what you can do. Whatever space or position you are occupying; God has determined your limit. God gave men power but all power belongs to God. There is no man who will forever be powerful or that will be great forever.
Several men in various domains of life present themselves to be a Pharaoh; such people would have done better if they remembered how Pharaoh ended his life. We were told the story of a man who was very hostile to people each time they wanted to fetch water from his well. The day he died children stood on the well shouting “Baba come and chase us away from your well”
Also, at a retirement service of a man they presented to him a big binded book wrapped as a gift to him. When he opened it, he discovered that the book contained copies of the query letters he gave people while in service. When you have the capacity to help, forgive, love and show kindness to people do not hesitate to do so. In everything you do, be mindful of the fact that God will not but help His people.
