When looking at difficult challenges our first thought is often, “That is too big a challenge….I can’t!” God calls us to change our thinking.
The prophet Jeremiah wrote, “But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar; he makes the clouds rise from the ends of the earth. He sends lightening with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses.” Jeremiah then goes on to write, “The Lord Almighty is his name.” (Jeremiah 10:12-13, 16)
When I am tempted to think that the task – whether that task is speaking to large groups of broken women, or starting a non profit, or sharing my story once more on the radio – is too big or difficult, I remind myself, The Lord Almighty is His name. Nothing is too big or hard for Him. He lives and dwells in me and what He calls me to do – He empowers me to do. My strength comes from Him.
Whatever you might be facing today, remind yourself you belong to the Lord. He is the one who stretched out the heavens and founded the world by His wisdom – The Lord Almighty is His name – He can do anything through you!
