“‘Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you. You show steadfast love to thousands, but you repay the guilt of fathers to their children after them, O great and mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts, great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the children of man, rewarding each one according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds. You have shown signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and to this day in Israel and among all mankind, and have made a name for yourself, as at this day. You brought your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm, and with great terror. And you gave them this land, which you swore to their fathers 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."
