Text: Jeremiah 32:26-27 “Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremiah, saying,(vs27) Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything to hard for me?
1 Chronicles 29:11-12 “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.(vs12) Both of riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thy hand it is to make great, and to give strength to all.”
St. Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
The Pulpit Commentary, Vol.11, Pages 52-53, A comment on Jeremiah 32:27. “We are not called to worship mere power. To do so would be to renounce the rights of conscience. We worship God, not because he is almighty, but because he is supremely good and morally great. But starting from this position, we have to take account also of the omnipotence of God. This omnipotence of God shows: 1.The utter vanity of all resistance to the will of God. In view of this obvious inference, the more strange, then, that it is so little acted upon. We need to feel it as well as to believe it. 2. This should lead us to trust that God will overcome difficulties which to us appear insurmountable. The restoration of Israel appeared impossible; the salvation of the world seems too great and difficult to be realized. But if “with God all things are possible”(St.Matt.19:26), how can we fix any limit to the ultimate triumphs of redemption? “The mercy of the Lord endureth forever;” then God will always seek the recovery of his lost children. “Is there anything to hard for me?” Then, in spite of present unbelief, impenitence, wild wanderings that leads us further astray, may we not believe that he will find his children at last? 3. These considerations should lead us to seek the help of God’s strength in our weakness. How foolish for the sailors to weary themselves toiling in vain at their oars against the tide, when if they would spread their sails the strong wind would carry them swiftly on! How foolish of us to toil on only in our natural power and with mere earthly means, when there are heavenly influences of omnipotence ready to help us if we will seek them!
