Jeremiah was stymied. He had no clue. His response to his quandary was right. He went to the only One who could help him understand. His prayer reflected what he knew to be true. Nothing was too hard for the Lord.
The Lord answered. Jeremiah 32:27 says, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” First of all the Lord confirmed who He is–the God of all flesh. Everyone is under God’s watchful eye.
2 Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…”
Psalm 103:14 says, “For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.” We have no recourse on our own. We are absolutely dependent on the Lord. John 15:5 says, “…without Me you can do nothing.”
I love David’s words in Psalm 63. Verse 8 in the Amplified says this, “My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.”
We cling in trust and hope with our mind, will, and emotions. Everything within us is holding fast to Him through His promises, and His eternal character which never changes. We can absolutely depend on Him. Here is a new song the Lord gave me last year. May it encourage you.
Nothing Is Impossible
You can move the mountains. You can calm the sea. You can split the skies and rescue me. Nothing is impossible, no nothing at all. You created everything before man’s fall. Though it seems impossible to me. I must remember Who You are as my Savior and King.
You rule in my heart through Your word supreme. I just have to believe-trust for You will faithful be. Nothing is too hard for You, no nothing at all. You delight to strengthen me through trials that reveal Yourself to me.
Your character is forged in me. Your anvil strong and true. You bring me through the fiery trials—my faith refined-secured. Your will is accomplished as I yield to Your hand. My thoughts are united with Your purpose and plans. As I walk in the path You choose You establish my heart. I serve You with thanksgiving and praise. You alone are worthy, O my Lord.
