This is so encouraging Jeremiah responds to God’s direction to purchase a field at a time when such an investment made very little sense. Notice how Jeremiah anchors his obedience in the power of the God who promised. Like Abraham (Romans 4:17), Jeremiah did not dwell on the obstacles that seemed to make God’s word impossible. Instead, he reminded himself that God is the one who created everything by his simple word and therefore nothing was too difficult for him to accomplish. We need to have this same foundation under all of our obedience. The promise of God never depends on the circumstances in which we find ourselves. It depends solely on the God who is able and willing to do what he has promised. Have a wonderful day you remind yourself that nothing is to hard for God. Love you all.
“O, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by your great strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” Jeremiah 32:17
We can allow our days to become weighed down by problems, worries, and fears. The meager efforts that take so much energy, yet seem to be fairly fruitless in their outcome. The worry that robs us of peace and rest. These verses above, remind us that the Lord is so powerful. He speaks and the things that we sometimes take for granted, like day and night, continue to happen just at the right time. God demonstrates His power by what He created and continues to show us every day.
Jeremiah also reminds us that when life seems too hard for us–nothing is too hard for God. When the problem we see ahead of us seems like there is no solution, we need to remember that this problem is not too hard for God. We don’t have to solve it in our own strength–God is there and He sees a solution. Sometimes we try to do things on our own and we think that’s when we end up feeling we want to give up, because it’s just too hard. But we’re not meant to do it on our own. We need that outstretched arm of God to help us, we need to trust in Him.
Lord, when we seek to do things on our own, help us to trust in You and remember that nothing is too hard for You. Thank You that when we want to give up, You never give up on us. In Jesus name Amen.
When doubt set in It is in our discouragement—even despair—that we begin to question God. “What did I do wrong?” “Lord, did you call me to this place of confusion?” “Where is my joy and hope?” “Are you even real or just a figment of my imagination?” Left to its natural conclusion, doubt crushes our faith in Christ. Well I hope this message will minster to anyone who is dealing with doubt. Have a wonderful day in the presence of the Lord. Love you all.
“Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?’” (Matthew 11:2–3).
Fortunately, faith does not have to take a eave of absence, when we are frustrated and fatigued. It is in your confinement that Christ wants to remind you of His great power. So cry out to Him in your confused circumstances, and He will earnestly listen in love. “In my distress I called to the Lord; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears” (2 Samuel 22:7). He does not leave His loved ones alone and in doubt.
It is okay to be in doubt, but it is not okay to remain in doubt. What doubt challenges your faith in God? Is it His provision, His promises, His presence, His character, or His care? When these questions assault your confidence in Christ, take a step back and review His track record.
Furthermore, use this temporary time of distrust to go deeper with Jesus. The pressure you feel on all sides is your Savior’s way of soliciting your attention. When in doubt, seek out the Lord, learn to love Him completely, and discern more fully His profound promises. Use doubt to dig deeper into the truth of Scripture; marinate your mind. “Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him” (Psalm 34:8).
When in doubt, stay steadfast in seeking out your Savior. Wait on Him, especially when you wonder what is next. Where there is true faith there may be a mixture of unbelief; so remain faithful, even when questions manipulate your faith. Perseverance will one day free you as a stronger and more-committed follower of Christ. See Jesus for who He is. Doubt dissolves in His reassuring presence. Doubt starves to death when it is not fed.
