I selected this passage from the book of Jeremiah as my verse of the week, because the truth contained within it is so powerful: nothing is too hard for the Lord. Since He is sovereign and all powerful, all things are technically “easy” for Him – it’s not like God has to think really hard and concentrate in order to make something happen.
For instance, as the Bible recounts in the first chapter of Genesis, God simply spoke creation into existence – using words only, with absolutely no effort expended on His part (and He probably didn’t even need to use the words!). So, when the Lord decrees that something is going to happen, it happens. Not maybe, might, or should, but it definitely will happen. It’s simply a matter of time.
This gives me comfort and hope, because it helps me to maintain the right perspective on things. The Lord can change our circumstances in a moment! I’ve seen it happen in my own life, and in the lives of others as well. Truly, nothing is too hard for Him, because God is not constrained by anything or anyone.
Think about it: if the Lord decided to change the color of the sky from blue to yellow, who could stop Him?
O sovereign Lord, indeed! ☀️
