Time with God - Mar. 12, 2013


Jeremiah 32:17-22

Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You…O great and mighty God. The LORD of hosts is His name; great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds; who has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and even to this day both in Israel and among mankind; and You have made a name for Yourself, as at this day.

You brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and with wonders, and with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with great terror; and gave them this land, which You swore to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey.

When faced with an impossible situation, remember who God is!

Think about how you react to situations that seem impossible. Do you go into overdrive to overcome it? Do you curl up in hopelessness? Do you try to deny the problem is there? As a Christian, maybe you say, “O Lord, what should I do?” Be careful not to let this prayer lead you to focus on your own ability to handle the situation.

Make your first reaction be to focus on who God is. Say with Jeremiah, “Nothing is too difficult for you, O great mighty God.”
