BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Gen 26, Matt 25, Esth 2, Acts 25
Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Man is limited in a lot of ways. There are a lot of things money cannot buy. It cannot buy good friends,a good husband or wife. It can buy good education but not wisdom. Definitely It cannot buy peace of mind.
From studying Micah 6:14 we see that the abundance of food does not guarantee satisfaction. Isaiah 9:20 says on the right they will devour, but still be hungry; on the left they will eat, but not be satisfied. It is God that satisfies hunger not the food we eat. The fact that a man sows does not mean he will reap. He can sow on the best soil and still have nothing to reap.1 Corinthians 3:7 says neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Wisdom is very important. Proverbs 4:7 says wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. According to Proverbs 16:6 wisdom is better than gold. It is far better than strength, Ecclesiastes 9:16. Ecclesiastes 10:10 says wisdom is profitable to direct or lead. Despite all the advantages of wisdom, it does not guarantee promotion. Promotion only comes from God, Psalm 75:6. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, not yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill, Ecclesiastes 9:11. It is a good thing to be hardworking , but hard work alone cannot make a man rich. Deuteronomy 8:18 says it is God that gives power to get wealth. There is a God who is not limited.Because He is no limitation, He is able to take care of your limitations. Solomon loved the people of Israel.Although he had a good heart, he was limited because he lacked intelligence.One day He received a visit from the unlimited God and his limitation disappear. The man became so intelligent, the bible records that he became an authority in the study of animals, fishes, plants, trees e.t.c. Not only that his brain so much developed that he wrote a thousand and five songs and spoke three thousand proverbs, 1 Kings 4:32-33. Naaman was a top general, full of medals. He had the brain, the love of the king, the contact but he was very limited because he had leprosy. Despite all his potentials he could not function because of this limitation. One day he met with the servant of the Unlimited God and his leprosy was taken care off.
PRAYER POINT: Father, every limitation before me please take care of them.
