Jeremiah 32:17 Ah Lord God! It is you who made the heavens and the earth by your great power and your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.
Yesterday, you made a great promise. In the cold light of today, you may be saying, “I’ve promised, but how can I carry it out? I’ve promised, but even so, I do not see what to do.”
You and I may well be cast down if we think we are left alone to our own devices. But we are not left alone. We have God to go to for help, and there is nothing too hard for God.
Let us be patient with ourselves as God is patient with us. Yesterday was only seed-sowing. We can let that seed grow in our hearts. We can cultivate it.
Let us use this season for prayerful thought and imagination to open up the way. Let us think things over with God and take counsel with others.
Truer for Christians than for any others is the saying, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
MOVING FORWARD: Do you know a lost sheep? Pray for them and ask God to go and find them. Tell them you love them.
