Is Anything Too Hard For God?

Let’s face it.  We doubt.

We doubt God’s goodness.  When we doubt His willingness to provide for what we need, we are doubting His goodness.  Is God not truly good that He would withhold the things His children need?  Of course not!  God is good and He will provide what we need!

We doubt God’s forgiveness.  We think that we are so far gone and so sinful that He could not possibly forgive what we’ve done.  What kind of Heavenly Father would He be if He limited His own forgiveness of His children?  He is full of love and grace and forgiveness and He demonstrated it by sending Jesus.

We doubt God’s power.  We sometimes believe that God has “more important” things to do than to attend to the petty little details of our lives.  Oh really?  God is not all-knowing or all-powerful enough to handle what we are going through no matter how big or small?  I like what God said to Jeremiah:

Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah:  “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:26-27, NIV)

He is the “God of all mankind.”  Nothing is too hard for God.  No problem is so insurmountable that He cannot handle it.  No child of His is too far gone that He cannot reach him or her.  No sin, save one (Mark 3:29), is so egregious that He cannot lovingly forgive it.  We have to learn to trust Him with every aspect of our lives.  I believe that God is calling out to us each day, “Trust Me.  Trust Me.  Trust Me.”  He is good and His love is everlasting.  He is good and He will not withhold good gifts from His children.  He is good and full of grace and mercy.  He is good and His power knows no limits.  God is good, my friends.  God is good and nothing is too hard for Him.

PRAYER: Thank You, God, for Your goodness and grace.  Thank You for Your mercy and forgiveness.  Thank You for loving me at my worst and helping me to be my best.  Thank You for Your power and might.  Allow me to experience Your goodness in my life today.  Amen.
