Nothing Is Too Difficult for Thee

Nothing Is Too Difficult for Thee

God’s faithful love is far beyond amazing.      He will severely punish His children  for their disobedience,  and when they develop  repentant hearts,  He tenderly brings them back  to the safety  of His fellowship.      He is loving them  as He disciplines them.      We can read about one example of this  in Jeremiah, chapter 32.

The prophet Jeremiah was a faithful preacher  of God’s word.      He preached repentance  to a very wayward people in Judah,  but they hatefully turned away  from him  and continued in their sins.      The king of Judah  got so fed up  with all Jeremiah’s preaching  that he locked him up  in the court of the guard.      He just wanted to shut Jeremiah up.      But,  Jeremiah continued  to speak God’s word there,  too.

One day,  the word of the Lord  came to him saying  that all of the people of Judah  would be taken captive  and hauled off,  but,  nevertheless,  Jeremiah was supposed to buy a piece of land  in Judah  and bury the deed,  as proof  that someday  God would rescue His people  from exile  and bring them back  to their own land  —  after they repented.      Then God promised  that He would teach their hearts  to have respect for the Lord.

Jeremiah obediently  purchased  the land  and had his helper go and bury the deed  for safe-keeping.      With that done,  Jeremiah prayed  in Jeremiah 32:17,

Ah  Lord GOD!      Behold,  Thou hast made the heavens and the earth  by Thy great power  and by Thine outstretched arm!      Nothing is too difficult for Thee.

Putting the people of Judah  into captivity  and then bringing them home again  was not an impossible thing  for the LORD.      Jeremiah recalled  some of God’s almighty deeds  with the children of Israel  and how He faithfully  keeps all of His promises.      Even though Jeremiah knew  that they would all be taken into captivity,  he did not beg God  to change His mind  about the punishment.      Instead,  Jeremiah looked to God’s promise for the future,  when He would bring  His people  back to their land  and bless them once again.

Jeremiah’s faith  was based on the truth  that the Lord GOD  is the one who “made the heavens and the earth”  by His “great power” and “outstretched arm”.      God simply spoke  all of creation  into being.      Psalm 33, verses 6 and 8-9 tell us,

By the word of the LORD  the heavens were made,
And  by the breath of His mouth  all their host…….

Let all the earth  fear the LORD;
Let all the inhabitants of the world  stand in awe of Him,
For He spoke,  and it was done;
He commanded,  and it stood fast.

Because all things are possible with God  and nothing is impossible,  He can speak something  into being  and it is done.      So,  we have no reason  to not trust God.      In His holiness  and love  He has promised us  forgiveness of all of our sins  through faith in Jesus Christ.      Even as we go through all sorts of trials,  we can trust God  to bring us through all of it  safely.      We don’t know all of the future,  but  we can entrust it all  into the hands  of our Almighty LORD  and Savior.      His love  is a sure promise  for our future.

No matter what is going on,  we can say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  nothing is too difficult for Thee.      Our future is in Your loving hands.      Mercifully lead us into trusting You always.”
