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: When you are tired and worn out by troubles of this life, turn to God for rest, help and rescue. When your chances of success and survival gets slim by the day, turn to the unfailing God. When all you see around you is misfortune, frustration and trial, turn to the almighty God for help (Matthew 11 : 28 – 30). He never fails because everything is possible to Him. No case is too big for Him to address. Truly, the bigger our problems, the better for Him to show His power. There is nothing too hard for Him to do. Therefore, we should acknowledge that He is able, and will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. (1Corinthians 10 : 13). Whatever the case, nothing is new to man, and nothing is new to God either. In our verse of the day He said, “Behold I am the LORD, the God of all flesh, is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32 : 27). Beloved, God is bigger than your problems. He can fix them for you, just trust Him. Though, the devil may not give up fighting you, but victory is sure. So, keep resisting him and pressing on.
Beloved, with God you cannot fail; so, do not lose hope. Do not allow the devil to steal your faith. Your faith is the only asset you have to approach God. Protect it with all you have and put your hope in God. Do not allow the devil to overcome you. Whatever battle he wages against you – in your finances, marriage, business, career, academics, family, ministry, wealth, etc., do not surrender your faith to him. He believes that if he (Satan) can conquer your faith he would have destroyed you. So, do not give him such opportunity. Always remember that your case is not different from what others are going through all over the world on a daily basis. Therefore, do not forget that God has not given up on you, so, you must not give up on yourself. Put your trust in Him and you will experience His grace (Jeremiah 30 : 17). Beloved, cheer up! Your divine help is on the way.
