Genesis 18:14 Is anything too hard for the LORD?
Matthew 17:20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
Jeremiah 32:17 Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
Have you ever had a really bad day? I’m sure if you are being truthful the answer is yes. We all have had bad days. Look around the world right now, and we see bad days repeating themselves and only seeming to become worse days! It looks like some crazy apocalyptic mini series playing out before our very eyes. The year of 2020 has proven to be a very bad year. We have had the first pandemic in over 100 years, there was then a rumor of murder hornets taking us over, murders and protests occurred, concerns of election fraud are still floating around, and a crisis at the border is ongoing! Jobs have been lost. Businesses have closed. It has been a messy year for sure, y’all, and we have had some very bad, terrible,, awful days this past year.
Bad days can get worse in our minds when we start dwelling on the problem and when we take our eyes off of the problem solver. We can easily get so caught up in the anguish of the terrible moment and the horrible things that are happening around us. Then we begin to worry and fret, and we do the worse thing possible: instead of turning to the Word of God, we turn on the news, we listen as some reporter gives us which is many times false or twisted information, and this just sends us into panic mode.
When we panic, we are focusing on the world, the problem, and on self. Oh but God! God is all powerful, and there is not a problem going on that He doesn’t know about. There is not a problem going on that He isn’t currently behind the scenes working on. He is working all things out for our good and His glory. We only have to have faith and knowledge that He will. But what if our faith isn’t strong enough? What if we feel too weak? Have no fear! God is here!
God’s power is exponential. The power of God isn’t relative to the amount faith we have. (Praise the Lord!) It is exponential in nature. God’s power is not dependent on the amount of faith or the level of faith that we have but rather on the amount of goodness and grace that God has. On those really horrible, tough, hard days we only have to remember that God is all powerful. There is nothing that He can not do. Trust that He will work it all out in His timing. He has a plan. Just trust Him to work it all out for your good and His glory!
