“‘Ah Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You,”

Today’s devotion comes from Jeremiah 32:1-27.  Here is a link to this chapter – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jeremiah+32&version=NASB

I quote only the following verses.

16 “After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch the son of Neriah, then I prayed to the Lord, saying, 17 ‘Ah Lord God!  Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm!  Nothing is too difficult for You, 18 who shows lovingkindness to thousands, but repays the iniquity of fathers into the bosom of their children after them, O great and mighty God.  The Lord of hosts is His name;  19 great in counsel and mighty in deed, whose eyes are open to all the ways of the sons of men, giving to everyone according to his ways and according to the fruit of his deeds;  20 who has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, and even to this day both in Israel and among mankind;  and You have made a name for Yourself, as at this day.  21 You brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and with wonders, and with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm and with great terror; 22 and gave them this land, which You swore to their forefathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey.  23 They came in and took possession of it, but they did not obey Your voice or walk in Your law;  they have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do;  therefore You have made all this calamity come upon them.  24 Behold, the siege ramps have reached the city to take it;  and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because of the sword, the famine and the pestilence;  and what You have spoken has come to pass;  and behold, You see it.  25 You have said to me, O Lord God, “Buy for yourself the field with money and call in witnesses”—although the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.’”

26 Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah, saying, 27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh;  is anything too difficult for Me?”  Jeremiah 32:16-27.

“‘Ah Lord God!  Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm!  Nothing is too difficult for You,”  Verse 17.

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh;  is anything too difficult for Me?”  Verse 27.

Whatever the LORD promises, He can perform.  Nothing is too difficult for Him.

And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, when I am so old?’  Is anything too difficult for the Lord?  At the appointed time I will return to you, at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”  Genesis 18:13-14.

Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed;  all came to pass.”  Joshua 21:45.
