Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there any thing too hard for me? Jer. 32: 27
God makes many statements in the word of God that are absolute. Above verse is such a statement, but one with a question as well. God states the He is the Lord and the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Him? Jeremiah explains who God is earlier in the chapter. “Ah Lord God! Behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.”Jer. 32: 17. God who is the Lord of all flesh and who made heaven and earth, and there is absolutely nothing that is too hard for Him.
Jesus, during His 33 and half years of life as a human on earth, proved that He has power over sickness, power over nature, power over sin, power over satan and power over death. What Jesus did in those years is just a fraction what He is actually capable of. He holds the universe in His hands. He is coming back as king of kings and Lord of lords. The greatness of His power will be revealed fully one day. As powerful as He is, He is also merciful and kind. It is because of His mercy that we get second chances after we have strayed from His word. “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed…” Lam.3:22. His lovingkindness tells of His greatness; for it is immeasurable.
We are to live up to the greatness of Jesus. Paul says, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ.” Eph. 4:15. His power resides in us. The power of theHoly Spirit guides us, comforts us, reveals the mystery of His word to us and helps us to keep ourselves separated and holy from the world. As we serve a God for whom there is nothing too hard, as His children, we can have the confidence that no situation will defeat us for God is with us. In Philipians 4: 13, we see “I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me.” When we grow in Christ and when our faith is unshakeable, we will have confidence to join Paul in saying, “I can do all things through Christ.”
We serve a mighty God, for who “impossible” does not exist in His vocabulary. We are His followers, His Children and thus, “impossible” should cease from our verbiage as well. Let us trust in Him and place our full confidence in our loving, powerful God.
