Is There Anything to Hard For God?  

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me (Jeremiah 32:27 NKJV)?  

Jeremiah 32:27 is God’s response to Jeremiah after he voiced his concerns about what was happening in the land of Judah. God had spoken to Jeremiah telling him that his uncle’s son was going to offer him land to redeem. Just as God spoke, Hanamel, Jeremiah’s uncle’s son offered him the land. Jeremiah purchased the land because he knew it was the word of the Lord. After Jeremiah completed the purchase deed, he prayed to the Lord saying, “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you” (Vs 27 NIV).  Even, as he is recognizing God’s power, he pleads to him. He reminds God of how he set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt and how He brought His people out of the land with a strong outstretched hand and terror. He promised their Fathers a land flowing with milk and honey but; yet His people did not walk in His law. As a result, God had allowed great calamity to come over them. The Chaldeans fought against them and took them into captivity and the land was besieged with pestilence and famine. Jeremiah said to the Lord, “ And you have said to me, “O Lord God, “Buy the field for money, and take witnesses”!-yet the city has been given into the hand of the Chaldeans” (Vs 26 NKJV).  God said to him “is there anything to hard for God”. Because the people had turned their backs on God, they had built false gods, sacrificed their sons and daughters in the fire, God turned them over to the Chaldeans. In spite of what it looked like, He made a promise to bring them back home to dwell safely. He said that He would bring them all the good that He promised, men will buy fields for money, sign deeds and seal them in the cities of Judah, cities of the mountains, cities of the lowlands and the cities of the South.

Is there anything to hard for God? What lessons can we learn from Jeremiah? Regardless of what the situation looks like, if God instructs you to do what same impossible, do it. Even if you are under attack by enemy forces, still do what God say. He has made us a promise; if we stray from his promise, it may take longer for that promise to manifest. When the people returned their hearts to God, He restored their land and freedom.  Continue to walk by faith.

Walk By Faith
 
Now faith is the substance of things hope for, evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). We all have hopes and dreams. Sometimes I find myself saying I need this or I need this done but; I don’t know how it is going to happen. As I ponder about my circumstances I think to myself, why do I always try to make things happen on my own? I am a believer and I know God will provide all my needs according to His riches in glory. I have come to know that life is a faith walk. When you walk this walk there will be obstacles, there will be circumstances that will test your faith. It is during these times of testing that you must hold on tighter to the Father’s hand. If you hold on and weather the storms, you will see the evidence of your faith. Believe and trust in God.
