In my weakness, many failures, and bountiful insecurities, He calls me to trust Him by faith, and then choose to obey Him. Often, I plead my own case, give my excuses, and tell Him why it can’t happen.
Just the other day our 5 year old daughter kept saying, I can’t. I can’t do this and I can’t do that. My husband reminded her that we don’t say that in our house. We need to ask God for help. All things are possible through Him.
I was reading in Jeremiah today. I have a magnet on my fridge with Jeremiah 32:17 on it. It prompted me to go to Jeremiah and the verse’s surrounding text and I found a gold mine of truth there! Here’s what God reminded me. Maybe He will remind you of the same things today?
1.God Promises Restoration After Punishment
God’s grace shines the brightest in our weakness and humility.
Jeremiah 31:2 “Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.”
The people were left of the sword but God whispered His grace and hope into their hearts. Motivated by deep, everlasting love, His Spirit will draw us back to Him and give us hope to trust Him after we sin. REPENT!
2.God Asks Us To Do The Impossible And Trust Him
God’s power shines brightest when we surrender our control, reason, and will to Him.
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 too hard for thee.”
God asked Jeremiah to do the “impossible”. He asked him to purchase land already captured by the enemy, while he was in prison no less! Impossible? Yes…. for God? No! What is He asking you to do that you keep saying NO to? Trust Him!
3.God Reminds Us Who He Is When We Start To Doubt
God’s character will change our heart when we agree with Him about who He is.
Jeremiah 32:27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”
Often times I acknowledge who God is and then falter. I question if it can really happen and He reminds me of who He is!
4.God Honors Our Prayers And Rewards Our Faith
God’s love and bounty will be hope for your today.
Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Call unto your Lord in prayer today! He will answer you as you align your will with His. Lay aside your will and anxiety and TRUST HIM! He has GREAT and MIGHTY things in STORE FOR YOU!
