Verse Of The Day: Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32 : 27.
LISTEN: God Almighty is the God of possibilities. Only He can resolve all issues of life. Even when it is difficult to believe for a possible divine intervention for our troubles, He still intervenes all the same. No doubt, When we are confused, frustrated and depressed because of certain issues in our lives, we tend to see nothing good anymore in life. We often believe that all hope is lost; as a result, nothing seems to make sense to us anymore. Instead, we wish to die than stay alive to experience miseries, sorrows and shame. However, if we can reflect on God’s goodness, we will certainly realise that there is no reason to give up on life just because we have issues which seem to take away our lives. Beloved, all you should do is to acknowledge that God is able, and will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you could bear. (1Corinthians 10 : 13). Whatever the case, nothing is new to man, and nothing is new to God either. He can handle what is difficult for you to handle. He said, “Behold I am the LORD, the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32 : 27). Beloved, hope in God is a weapon you cannot afford to lose. No matter the situation do not give up fighting the devil, as he will not give up fighting you. Trust God and you will experience the power of possibilities.
Nothing is too hard for God, therefore, do not lose hope. Do not allow the devil to steal your faith, because that is the only asset you have to approach God. Protect your faith with all you have and put your hope in God. Do not allow the devil to overcome you. Whatever battle he wages against your finances, marriage, business, career, academic, family, ministry, wealth, etc., do not surrender your faith to him. He believes that if he can attack what you have he would have attacked your faith. So, do not give him such regrettable opportunity. Remember that your case is not different from what many others are going through on a daily basis. God has not given up on you, therefore you must not give up on yourself too. Hope in him and you will experience his grace. Cheer up! Divine help is coming for you soon.(Jeremiah 30 : 17).
