Miracles are easy for God
Pastor Mark Jeske
In some ways, bringing water to arid Southern California is one of America’s greatest engineering achievements. Over the course of many decades, government entities have spent billions of dollars to establish huge reservoirs in the mountains and hundreds of miles of aqueducts to bring enough fresh water to support a population of 15 million people in the valleys around Los Angeles.
God once did approximately the same thing in a day by simply speaking his powerful Word. He decided, as a gift, not only to keep the waterless army of the Israelites alive after they had been marching in the desert for a week, but he guaranteed them a victory over their feared Moabite enemies. The prophet Elisha told the Israelite commanders that God wouldn’t even have to break out a sweat to do it: “This is what the LORD says: You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. This is an easy thing in the eyes of the LORD; he will also deliver Moab into your hands” (2 Kings 3:17,18).
Think what that means! Every molecule of matter on earth was made out of nothing by God, and he is fully capable of repeating that creative act at any time of his choosing. It’s easy for him! He just thinks of what he wants and then wills it into existence.
There are no limits to his power to take care of the needs of his believers.
