SAFE IN GOD’S HANDS!
This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord Almighty is his name: “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,” declares the Lord, “will Israel ever cease being a nation before me.” declares the Lord. This is what the Lord says: “Only if the heavens above can be measured and the foundations of the earth below be searched out will I reject all the descendants of Israel because of all they have done,” declares the LORD. —Jeremiah 31:35-37
“Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me? —Jeremiah 32:27
Nothing is too difficult for our Lord God Almighty! He can do anything He desires at any time He desires. Let us take great comfort in knowing He is Sovereign over everything and that He will bring all things to culmination one day. His plan will be finished for this age. It will happen in His timing.
One thing we can be absolutely sure of— the nation and offspring of Israel will never cease. That is our Lord’s promise. Indeed if—
- The sun stops shining by day
- The moon stops shining by night
- The stars stop shining by night
- The waves of the seas stop
- The heavens can be measured
- The foundations of the earth are searched out
If these take place then Israel will cease to be a nation and Jewish descendants will be rejected. But our Lord will keep all of these functioning and man will never be able to measure the heavens or search out the foundations of the earth. It is beyond man’s capabilities even though man’s pride thinks it may be possible one day. God will not reject His people which will prove man will not be able to measure the heavens or search out the foundations of the earth.
There are those who seek to instill fear that our world is going to cease because of man’s doing. This is deception and the pride of man. Whose is man that thinks it is possible to destroy what God alone can destroy? What arrogance is this for man to think? Again, this is a satanic lie to manipulate mankind. Beware!
Dear Father I am so comforted and encouraged to know that You are ultimately in control of all creation and that includes my life, the life You have given me. I am so joyful to know I am safe in Your hands now and that You will bring me safely home to be with Jesus and all who love Him. Until then may I run the race with perseverance that You have marked out for me, keeping my eyes on Jesus and living by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Yes, may this be so!
