Scripture: Jeremiah 33:3
Broadcast date: 05/16/2016

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Don’t limit the great that God can do in your life. Just call upon Him and He will guide you.

I had to chuckle when I read about the city fathers laying out the streets for New York City. They dreamed of what the city might become and, after much deliberation, began laying out the streets numbering from the center outward. They already had six or seven streets but what would be the limit? In their wildest imagination they drew up their map and extended it all the way out to 19th Street which they called “Boundary Street” because they felt that New York City would never surpass that! But they were short sighted because the last I heard the city had reached 284th Street!
Lord have mercy? Who would have dreamed of such a growth.
But do you know what? We do that with God all the time. We put limits on Him. We don’t think He is able to meet our needs, so we lie awake at night, worrying and fretting. God tells us to stop it. It is an insult to Him. Listen to what God tells us. “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which though knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3). Just remember, with God there is no such thing as Boundary Street!
