Ah, Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You. – (Jeremiah 32:17, NIV)
Lord God, with Your great power You made the earth and the sky. There is nothing too hard for You to do. – (Jeremiah 32:17, ERV)
Eternal Lord, with Your outstretched arm and Your enormous power You created the heavens and the earth. Nothing is too difficult for You. – (Jeremiah 32:17, VOICE)
This is such an important reminder as the pending decision for the upcoming school year has been conditionally released. Though I happened to overhear the plan while my love and I were out running an errand from a frustrated parent who was ranting to his friend, I had to stop and remember Who holds me in His hands. The very same God that created the heavens and the earth is able to carry us through whatever plan transpires. I need not worry, for worry never gets us anywhere anyway, but instead, I need to place all in His hands, and trust that He will help those negotiating the best plan for all. My prayer is for wisdom and safety, protection and provision for all who will be impacted by the plan that actually takes place. May we all remember who holds the power in His hands, and trust that His love will carry us through whatever road is chosen.
The God of all grace,
Who created all;
Is able to do,
What’s best for us all.
As He made the earth,
And hung up the stars;
He considered us,
His best work of art.
In His mighty love,
He’s able to do;
All that is needed,
To carry us through.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that in the same way that Your power created the heavens and the earth, You are able to meet us where we are, and do the seemingly impossible. Forgive us for the times that our faith falters. Show us how to trust in Your unfailing love that leads us and guides us in the way that is best. Help us to love those around us in ways that demonstrate Your goodness and grace, so that all might rest in the goodness of Your love. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek You and trust You, for You are more than able to set the very best plan in motion for all. Amen.
