When the doctor says, “I am sorry, there is no hope. We have done all that we can possibly do,” we despair. Why? Because men have done all they can. We reach the end of that sentence and conclude that there is no hope, without ever taking God into account. But the more you factor God into the problem, despair flees. When you remember God, hope returns.
We must remember that God I able to deliver from the fiery furnace, and the den of lions. He is able to deliver you from sin and from death – and from any present trouble causing you distress.
If God is the One tackling the mountain, the word “difficulty’ has no place in the equation. As He said, “Behold, I am the Lord. Is there anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27)
Are you facing a mountain today? Ask God for help. Ask the able One to show Himself mighty on your behalf – and then believe that He will.
Father, thank You for loving us. Help us to get our eyes off of the circumstances and on Your great Ability.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
