nothing is too hard for God

Do you ever have those times when you struggle to believe whether God can really do what seems to need to be done in a situation? When you wonder if God really can do the miracle you are asking Him to do? When you wonder whether your request of Him is too much - too big? I would venture to guess that many of us have those times - and that they are more common than we would really care to admit.

Earlier this week, I was listening to some teaching at a Bible study I'm part of, when the teacher pointed us to a passage of Scripture in Jeremiah 32 that I know I've read before, but it had never really stuck with me. There was one verse in particular that really jumped off the page at me:
"Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power
and outstretched arm. Nothing it too hard for you."
(Jeremiah 32:17, NIV, emphasis mine)

I had to go back and read the rest of that passage later because when I first saw that verse on the page, it hit me so hard that I went back and reread it multiple times right then.

That was just exactly the reminder that I needed right then. There is nothing that is too difficult for God! Nothing! So, we can pray those big prayers and know that it is not asking too much of God. We can ask for miracles and know that God is able to perform them. There is nothing that is too hard for God to do it! I'd say that's pretty good news to be reminded of.
