Zero Sum Game, No Way!!

Recently I watched a video produced by France Chan’s group at, entitled The Awe Factor of God.  As Chan showed our massive planet earth, in perspective to the sun, our galazy and the Milky Way, I was impressed by the fact that our God has unlimited resources, boundaries, assets, clout and power.    Often times we in our strength fall into the trap of thinking, “If I do this, I can’t do that”.  But we forget that as we do what God wants there are no limits to what He can do through us.   When you find a ministry and mission for your own life you will find God multiplies your time, strength and resources instead of subtracting it from some arbitrary life allocation.
