Jeremiah 32: 26 – 27, Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me? NKJV
Is there ANYTHING too difficult for the God of the Bible? Everything that exists was created by the Lord; therefore, nothing is impossible for Him. Consequently, what may be too difficult or seem hopeless for us is still possible for God.
Perhaps you’re facing a “seemingly” impossible situation, and whenever you think about what you have to face in the natural realm, you feel hopeless. The Lord doesn’t want you to fear; neither does He want you to think that you’re in your situation alone.
Just because things are out of our control, and we have no power to change an adverse situation in our own strength doesn’t mean that we have to accept things exactly the way life brings them to us. The Word of God tells us that He is a very present HELP in times of trouble. God wants to HELP you so that you can overcome the obstacles you face and give you His peace during the process.
Now let’s look at what we must do in order to invite God’s power into our lives. James 4 tells us that God gives His grace to the humble, but He opposes the proud. Therefore, if we want the Lord to move on our behalf and deliver us from trouble, we must be willing to trust in Him for the answer. What is grace and how does it help us?
Paul teaches in 2 Corinthians 12 that grace is the strength of God. When you and I seek the Lord and rely upon Him, He has promised to give us His grace (strength). You will know the very moment that God pours out His grace upon your life to help you because things will begin to seem easier and look doable. Nothing in the natural realm has changed. The only thing that has changed is your perspective about the situation, since you now have God’s strength working for you.
What is impossible with men is possible with God. The key is to get with God; we do this through our faith. Place your faith in God’s ability to transform you and to work His plan in the situations you face, and then watch as God releases His grace and empowers you. I love it when God releases His strength/grace in my life to give me victory over trials and problems that are too difficult for me. I am able to rest and watch as God moves the mountains and destroys the opposition that has grieved me.
After you pray and give God your impossible problems, wait on Him to move. As you wait, you are practicing your faith to rest in Him. Waiting on God is also an act of faith. It welcomes the presence of God to invade your world and give you much-needed relief. Are you tired and weary from the battles you’ve incurred? If so, then give all your burdens and cares over to God today and afterwards rest/wait on Him. The ONE who called you by name is also faithful to you and will perform His good Word in your life.
If God Be for Us,
