blessingsI have been reading a book called” The Prayer of Jabez” by Bruce Wilkinson. It’s a small book  you could probably read it in less than a day, but I would take my time. There is so much to absorb, I would take my time to internalize the truths in this book.

The chapter called “Living by God’s Math”, really hit home with me. I believe it really explains why many of us are so reluctant about stepping into things bigger than ourselves. We look at what I call  “Man’s Math”.

Man’s Math

My abilities + experience + training +my personality and appearance + my past +the expectations of others = my assigned territory

God’s Math

My willingness and weakness + God’s will and supernatural power = my expanding territory


Notice Man’s Math equals  my assigned territory. What we consider to be the way to go really is limited.

Now on the other hand, God’s Math equals my expanding territory. The word expanding means ever-increasing, always growing , limitless.

What ever God has called you to do, don’t shrink back and base your decision on whether you  have everything in place or whether you believe you can do it or not.

I have witnessed this a number of times from people I’ve known. They trusted God, and not what they brought to the table, and now that I know God’s Math, I see incredible things happening in my life.

I hope that you have found this to be as encouraging as I did. God’s will for us is as limitless as he is.
