Combating The Feeling Of “It’s Too Hard”

In summary of Jeremiah 32:17 it says, “Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.” (ESV)

Bottom Line:
God, you have made the heavens and the earth, nothing is too difficult or hard for you.

What this means to me:
God has made everything, there is nothing that is too hard for him.  In my own life, there come times when I hear myself saying, “it’s too hard!”  I have feelings of wanting to give up or to find an easier way.  Often I don’t feel I’m up to the challenge. The problem is that I’m trying to do it all on my own strength.  There will be times, when my own strength will not be enough.  This can also occur when I follow Christ and do things his way as he will likely ask me to do things I would feel inadequate of doing on my own. This is where God provides help.  He is just waiting for me to ask him.  When I do, he’ll empower me to do what he has asked me to do.  I need to remember that He is always with me.  With God on my side, I can do anything he asks.  So in summary, when I follow him and do his will, he will be there to help me.  Nothing it too difficult or hard for him.
