“Nothing is too difficult for You” – “Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.”

Today’s devotion comes from Numbers 11:16-23.

“The LORD therefore said to Moses, “Gather for Me seventy men from the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and their officers and bring them to the tent of meeting, and let them take their stand there with you.  Then I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take of the Spirit who is upon you, and will put Him upon them;  and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you will not bear it all alone.  Say to the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat;  for you have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, “Oh that someone would give us meat to eat!  For we were well-off in Egypt.”  Therefore the LORD will give you meat and you shall eat.  You shall eat, not one day, nor two days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you;  because you have rejected the LORD who is among you and have wept before Him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”’”  But Moses said, “The people, among whom I am, are 600,000 on foot;  yet You have said, ‘I will give them meat, so that they may eat for a whole month.’  Should flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to be sufficient for them?  Or should all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to be sufficient for them?”  The LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’S power limited?  Now you shall see whether My word will come true for you or not.”  Numbers 11:16-23.


Truly, the LORD’S power is NOT limited!!  Truly, the word of the LORD comes true to us!!

“‘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,”  Jeremiah 32:17.

“9 “Remember the former things long past,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is no one like Me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure
11 Calling a bird of prey from the east,
The man of My purpose from a far country.
Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.
I have planned it, surely I will do it.
” Isaiah 46:9-11.

“10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
” Isaiah 55:10-11.

“The LORD has established His throne in the heavens,
And His sovereignty rules over all.” Psalm 103:19.
