The Great Power of God

"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

If God could create the world out of nothing, why should we doubt that He can accomplish whatever concerns us today? The great preacher and evangelist Charles Spurgeon wrote: "If we would venture more upon the naked promise of God, we should enter a world of wonders to which as yet we are strangers. Let Jeremiah's place of confidence be ours -- nothing is too hard for the God that created the heavens and the earth." We are four days into a new year. Imagine what the next twelve months could hold if we venture into it with unabashed faith in the great power of our God. What is the impossible thing you want God to do? If Christ is your Savior and what you desire is in line with His word -- if it is not outside of His will -- then you can ask whatever you want and God will do it (John 15:7). This is a bold statement, but I'm just repeating what Christ said. If we are abiding in Him, then our desires will be in line with His desires, and He surely will do the thing He desires to do. Abide in Christ, seek His will, then trust in the great power of God and step forward in confidence. To God be the glory!


  1. My pleasure, Janet. And believe me, I needed to "hear" this myself. God always teaches me through my own devotionals. God bless and thanks for commenting.


I appreciate your comments and read each one.
