Too Hard Or Too Small

“Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee” (Jeremiah 32:17).

This mighty declaration of faith in the Creator of heaven and earth was given by Jeremiah in respect to a mundane sort of need—the need of assurance that his real estate investment would be safe, even if he were forced to be away from it for many years. There is nothing too small for the Lord, just as there is nothing too hard for Him, and He delights to “show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him” (II Chronicles 16:9).

Since God created all things, He certainly can control all things. If a person really believes the very first verse of the Bible—the simple declaration that the entire space/mass (energy)/time universe had been called into existence by God—then he or she will never find it difficult to believe any of the other declarations or promises of His inspired word.

In response to Jeremiah’s great statement of faith, God gave him the assurance he sought: “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: Is there anything too hard for me?” (v.27). God, who made the sea, could roll back its waters to enable His people to pass through its very midst unharmed (Exodus 14:29); He who made the earth could cause the earth to cease its rotation, to give His people victory (Joshua 10:12–14). There is nothing too hard for the God of creation!

We can be confident that 20th-century problems are no more difficult for God than those of 600 B.C. May our mighty Creator grant us trusting and obedient hearts, in both the great problems and the small problems of life. In this verse, the Hebrew word for “hard” is the same as for “wonderful” (Psalm 107:8). God delights in transforming the hard things of life into the wonderful works of God! HMM
