Nothing Is Impossible With The Lord

There was a time I found it easy to ask the Lord if the problem I had was too big for Him. What in the world was I thinking? There is not one thing that is to big or bad that the Lord can not take care of, no, not one single thing.

Jeremiah 32:17; "Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing to hard for thee": If I would have just stopped to think a God that made the heaven and earth would have no problem in solving one that I might have. As we grow in the Lord we realize God is the one that will help us with any problem we have.

Jeremiah 32: 27; "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing to hard for me"? God was telling me in this verse there is nothing to hard for Him to help me with. I think at times I was just plain tired of waiting for Him to work in His time. It is known God always works in His time and not ours. I found that by talking to the Lord about my problem or situation the time seems to go much faster, it also made my problem/situation not seem to be as big as I thought it was.

Even though I didn't know how God would take care of my problem I should have known He would. I should have and should always depend on the promises of the Lord and know He will take care of them; I just need to always know it will be in His time not mine.

Luke 1:37; "For with God nothing shall be impossible".

Another thing, I should have been doing is praising the Lord. When I am praising the Lord I don't have the time to wonder and worry if something is going to be done. I love praising the Lord, it gives me the feeling and knowing God is right there with me. It is as if I can reach out and touch Him, what an awesome feeling! I have no idea why I let the problem become so big that I allowed doubts to enter into my mind. If I would just remember each time to praise Him and rely on His promises, there is nothing to big or bad for Him.

God is a God of endless mercy and loving kindness. He not only shows these to me but to everyone. He does not limit these, He gives to all.

The next time I have a problem I am going to know by His promises He will take care of it for me but in His time. I give Him all the praises and glory for even taking the time to help me with my problem. He is an awesome God.

May you always know the love, joy, and peace of the Lord!

Sometimes we think it is just too big so we simply don't ask God. NOTHING is too big for Him. He holds the world in His hands, He can do all things. Thanks you for this reminder.

Great post Deane. I can get so caught up in the worry about how He is going to fix my problem I forget Who He is. I often find that putting on some good praise music reminds of Who He is and how big He is that nothing is to big for Him.

Wonderful post Deane.

It's amazing how when we focus on praising our Heavenly Father instead of worrying about our own problems, how quickly we realize that with Him in control we have nothing to fear!

Have a Blessed Day!

One of the most difficult things that I encounter is the 'wait.' God always answers our prayers...the answers are yes, no and not now. It's when I get the 'not now, Debi' that I find it difficult. However, always going to the Creator is the only way to get through any situation. I am so thankful that I can go to God and even in those 'not now' times, He comforts me.

Great post, thank you. Love you!
