Question the Lord Asked [2]: Is there any thing too hard for me?

Comments

Read: I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27

Examine: Zedekiah was the last king before the final conquest of the Babylonians over Judah, and the final conquest began in his tenth year. Jeremiah wrote this even as Babylon’s army besieged Jerusalem. It was an almost unbelievably stressful crisis for the whole city.

As the Babylonians lay siege to Jerusalem during King Zedekiah’s reign, Jeremiah finds himself imprisoned in the court of the guard. In a surprising turn of events, Jeremiah’s cousin Hanamel offers him a field in Anathoth, fulfilling a prophecy Jeremiah had received from God. Despite the city’s impending doom, Jeremiah purchases the land as an act of faith in God’s promise of restoration.

Jeremiah prays to God, acknowledging His sovereignty, power, and the justice of the impending destruction due to Israel’s sins. Despite his faith, he expresses confusion about the command to purchase land amidst the chaos.

When Jeremiah asked to the Lord “The Babylonians have built siege mounds around the city to capture it, and they are attacking. War, starvation, and disease will make the city fall into their hands. You can see that all you have said has come true. Yet, Sovereign LORD, you are the one who ordered me to buy the field in the presence of witnesses, even though the city is about to be captured by the Babylonians.”

Then the LORD said to me, “I am the LORD, the God of all people. Nothing is too difficult for me

Application: Despite the imminent destruction, Jeremiah’s purchase of the field becomes a beacon of hope, a tangible manifestation of his faith in God’s promise of restoration. Jeremiah 32 serves as a testament to unwavering faith amidst uncertainty and a reaffirmation of God’s relentless commitment to redemption and restoration.

In response to Jeremiah’s prayer, the statement of comfort should be our strength – Then the LORD said to me, “I am the LORD, the God of all people. Nothing is too difficult for me

God reaffirms promises future restoration. Israel and Judah will once again be prosperous, fields will be bought and sold, and a renewed covenant will be established.

Decision:

  1. When the deed was purchased, help me to pray like Jeremiah. After I had given the deed of purchase to Baruch, I prayed, “Sovereign LORD, you made the earth and the sky by your great power and might; nothing is too difficult for you. You are a great and powerful God; you are the LORD Almighty. You make wise plans and do mighty things; you see everything that people do, and you reward them according to their actions.
  2. Help me to hear from you the sweet voice, trust and find strength – saying – “I am the LORD, the God of all people. Nothing is too difficult for me
