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.
