Daily Bread 2/25/2023


    Daily Bread – February 25, 2023 (The Seventh Day – Genesis 2:1-3) 2 Chronicles 25:9 – And Amaziah said to the man of God, “But what shall we do for the hundred talents of silver which I gave to the army of Israel?” And the man of God said, “Yahoah is able to give you much more than this.” God Is Able To Do Much More Amaziah set out to strengthen the defenses of Judah and hired one hundred thousand mighty men of Israel from the tribe of Ephraim. But Israel and Ephraim had long since rejected the Lord and served other gods, so such an alliance was unacceptable to the Lord. Therefore, a man of God came and told Amaziah that Yahoah would not be with him to help him if Ephraim was involved. If Amaziah was going to strengthen himself by the help of man, God would not be His strength; but rather, would cast Him down – for success was not determined for the people of God based upon their own strength, but based upon the Lord, Who alone was able to help or to cast down (2 Chronicles 25:8; Deuteronomy 8:16-17). All Amaziah could think about was the one hundred talents of silver he had already invested to hire the men of Ephraim. However, while he was concerned about his great loss of money and wasted expense, the man of God assured him God was able to do much more than this. God is able to save you when the hundred thousand mighty men of Ephraim will fail. God is able to give you much more money than a hundred talents of silver if you will serve Him. God is able to defend you and establish you more than you can defend or establish yourself. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
