Does God have short arms?

                                                    Has the Lord's arm been shortened?(Numbers 11:23) Thought for the ...
What a strange question to ask you this morning?
Do you think God has short arms?
Well, if you think I am going crazy I must point out that it is actually God who asks Moses this question first. Take a read and see:

"The Lord answered Moses, “Is the Lord’s arm too short? Now you will see whether or not what I say will come true for you.” - Numbers 11:23

God had promised to answer Moses prayers and to deliver food to the Israelites, but Moses was a little sceptical. God wanted to push Moses a little and so he challenge him by asking whether Moses felt that God was not able to fulfil his promises.

In another translation God asks the question like this: "The Lord said to Moses, “Is the Lord’s power limited? Now you shall see whether my word will come true for you or not.” (NRSV)

How would you answer God's question today?

Living in Grace
