Nothing Is Too Hard for HIM!

Is there anything too hard for the Lord?

{See how the siege ramps are built up to take the City. Because of the sword, famine and plague, the City will be handed over to the Babylonians who are attacking it. What you said has happened, as you now see. And though the City will be handed over to the Babylonians, you, O Sovereign Lord, say to me, "Buy the field with silver and have the transaction witnessed." Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: "I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?" (Jeremiah 32:24-26)}

Why did God have Jeremiah buy land at a time when Jerusalem was under seige by the Babylonians? He wanted the prophet to focus, not on the trials at hand, but on God's promise of restoration for the future. Jeremiah's purchase was an act of faith in God's promise.

Perhaps today you're in a trial of your own and you're having doubts about God fulfilling His seemingly impossible promise to you. If so, I pray that you will be inspired by Jeremiah's example. God expects a lot from His children. He often asks us to demonstrate our trust in Him even when it seems that we are up against insurmountable odds. But let me reassure you today that if it takes a miracle for the Lord to fulfill His promises to you, our God is able and He will do it. Today, God is asking you---- "Is anything too hard for Me?" If you can answer Him, "No, Lord" then your miracle is on its way!
