Message of the Day: Nothing is Too Hard for God.
“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, NKJV)
The events in Jeremiah 32 occurred the year before Jerusalem fell. The burning of the city and the desolation of Judah were almost at hand. Amid the gloom and despair of the hour, Jeremiah was commanded of God to buy a field, in public ceremony, and put away the deed for safekeeping, to emphasize his prediction that the captives would return and the land would once again be cultivated.
After buying the field, Jeremiah began to have doubts. It seemed to him almost too much to expect that God could allow such a worthless people ever to return to their land. He therefore prayed to God, seeking to reassure himself that nothing is too hard for a God who is so loving and powerful. He reminds God of his steadfast faithfulness and miraculous power, which had saved his people in the past. But the people have been disobedient and have now brought this justly deserved punishment upon themselves.
God replies that nothing is too hard for him and told him of the impending destruction and restoration of his people. May we receive the same reassurance of God’s steadfastness in this time of crisis.
