Strong Hand, Powerful Arm
Posted: August 09, 2016
"O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!" - Jeremiah 32:17
Have you ever experienced something that left you thinking, "that's not gonna happen in a million years." Or how bout the classic, "yeah, when pigs fly!" Sometimes I say these types of statements in jest, but sometimes I say them in frustration! Cuz sometimes, life is really really hard!
But -- God's hand is still strong. God's arm is still powerful. And nothing is too hard for him. The supernatural ability of God do to impossible things is repeated throughout scripture. We serve a supernatural God that can do supernatural things. Hard things are easy for him. And impossible things become possible. So no matter how hard life my be right now, trust God, because with him, " really really hard: becomes "really really easy." And he always has your best interests in mind.
Lord, help me to trust you at your word. Help me to truly believe that nothing is too hard or impossible for you. Thank you for your strong hand and powerful arm. Thank you that you are at work in my life. Help me to trust you more for difficult and impossible things. In Jesus' name, amen.
