REMEMBER GOD’S POWER
Read Jeremiah 32:17-44
“Ah, Lord God! You Yourself made the heavens and earth
by Your great power and with Your outstretched arm. Nothing
is too difficult for You!” Jeremiah 32:17 (HCSB)
Sometimes we forget how powerful God is. We forget the great things that
He has done in the past. We often allow the immensity of our own problems
and challenges to overshadow the greatness of our God. Our view of God
diminishes to an anemic, powerless God.
In order to build a case for the greatness and power of God, Jeremiah
reminds us of what God has done in the past. He reminds us that God
“made the heavens and the earth.” What a display of power! God spoke,
and the world came into existence. No one but God could do that. Creation
itself is a testimony to the fact that God can do anything.
Creation was just the beginning of God’s mighty display of power. Jeremiah
reminds us that this same God led His people out of Egypt with signs and
wonders (verse 21). As we read the Scripture, we are reminded that this
same God sent Jesus to be born of a virgin, live a sinless life, die on a cross
for our sins, and be raised to life on the third day. Only God could do that!
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus is a reminder that God can do
Have you forgotten God’s ability to do anything? Today recall the many great
things that God has done as recorded in Scripture. Remember the great
things He has done in your life personally. Remember the great things He
has done in your church.
Ask God to do a work of revitalization in your church that
only He can get credit for.
