Nothing Too Great or Too Wonderful

Ah, Adonai YHWH!
Behold, You have created the heavens and the earth
By Your great power and outstretched arm.
There is nothing too difficult,
Nothing too great or wonderful for You to do!
You show merciful lovingkindness and favor to thousands,
And repay the iniquity of the fathers
Into the bosom of their children after them.
Great and Mighty God, whose name is YHWH of Hosts,
You are great in counsel and mighty in deed.
~ Jeremiah 32:17-19 (author, amplified)

[May] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory ... give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him ... that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe ...
~ Ephesians 1:17-19 (NKJV)

Jeremiah 32 begins with the Lord's proclamation of doom and destruction, followed by the promise of peace. Jeremiah's sudden and awestruck proclamation of YHWH's power and goodness is declared in the midst of Jeremiah's struggle to comprehend such opposite scenarios.

What situation in your life—or in the world—looks like only doom and destruction? From Him who created the heavens and the earth, there is nothing too great or too wonderful to come out of even the very worst scenario.

When faith lags, and we cannot comprehend any good coming from a situation, it is time to look upon all our God has already done, declare His merciful lovingkindness and favor, and remember the exceeding greatness of His power—against those who oppose Him, but toward us who believe.

Adonai YHWH, You have shown us Your goodness and Your power in so many ways that it will take an eternity to proclaim them! Please turn our eyes to look upon testimonies of the past whenever we doubt Your great plans, purposes, and promises for the future.
