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.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
