Comments on Verses from Prophets

Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”

The human race has grown in its knowledge and understanding of the universe and all we call science. For all its composite knowledge and understanding of the world, the human race still has no idea how the world they live in came to be. They have theories, but all they have are theories that are mostly guesses. Hundreds of years ago, a prophet in the land of Judah gave the knowledge and the understanding. It’s still there for all to see.

The more the ‘scientist’ learn, the more the complication of the universe and life are seen, the more they rely on accident. The circumstantial evidence they continue to uncover makes the idea of accidental life untenable. Accidents by nature tend to lead to chaos, and the scientific evidence discovered day by day is too orderly.

For a moment, consider the obvious reaction Jeremiah has to his discovery that God is creator of the universe and its inhabitants. Nothing is too hard for creator God. Nothing. Later in the chapter, God asks Jeremiah the same question the prophet has already answered. “Is anything too hard for me?” (27). Remember, this is addressing power and ability, not nature.

Task for Today: World politics got you worried? Don’t be. Health problems a major concern? No need to be concerned, God’s got you covered. Heaven? Hell? Satan? Minor things to deal with. Today, turn it all loose. Pass your responsibility over to God. Worry about one thing and that only. “Walk in the light of Jesus,” God has the rest.
