“Ah, Lord God! Behold You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.” Jeremiah 32:17

Take a look around at God’s creation: the beauty and intensity of colors, the intricacy of shapes, the variety of sounds, textures, and flavors; the synchronization and perfection of everything He created: it -was all engineered, designed, and created by the same all-powerful, all wise God who has sustained it since its inception. Everything from the minutest detail to the most immense heavenly body was – and is – the work of His hand. All of that is visible evidence of a changeless truth: there is nothing too hard for God!

Jeremiah, a prophet of God (722 BC – 585 BC) considered all the visible evidence of a changeless truth, and expressed it to God as the opening statement of his prayer. Then he laid his concern, his burden and his worries out before God, being convinced that there is nothing too hard for Him. He understood WHO he was crying out to.

When we look to God for help, strength, wisdom, guidance; when we lay our burdens out before Him, let’s also remember WHO He is: the Maker of the heavens and the earth. With that truth in mind, let’s ask ourselves:

  • Is the issue I’m struggling with too hard for Him? NO
  • Can I trust Him to work out the details of this situation that is stressing me? YES
  • Will He be able to handle this complex issue? YES

Let’s repeat this truth, along with Jeremiah, when we trust in God for what seems to be impossible: “There is nothing too hard for You.” Let’s believe it today as we trust Him with our cares!

    We have to take the time to enjoy and appreciate it. It’s all around us…over us, under us, beside us…and when He tells us to rest in Him, He wants us to spend time enjoying Him and all He has to offer us, including His outstreatched arms to shield us from ourselves.

    I appreciate your posts so much. I don’t always get a chance to read them “on time” but I get such a blessing from them every time I do. (I love your flowers. We don’t have that beautiful dark color!)
