Listen carefully!

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for Me? Jeremiah 32:27.                                                                           

Nothing is too hard for God, because He says: "Behold... I am the Lord.. the God of all flesh." With the word "behold" the Lord draws attention to what He is going to say next. With other words "Pay attention".

God told Abraham that Sarah was going to have a son, but Sarah laughed when Abraham told her, for she considered herself too old. The Lord overheard this and replied: "Is there anything too hard for the Lord?"

How come that mankind has such remarks against His God, showing unbelief and distrust in His promises, God who created mankind from dust?

Although we may go over hills, through the deep valleys of despair, or being neglected, persecuted, abandoned or loved, why would we change our attitude towards our Father by not trusting His word? He gave His only Son to be spit upon and crucified and who has showed us His LOVE from the very beginning, so we may live with Him forever.

Without faith one cannot please God. We will be put to the test, therefore let us seriously aim to reach the goal; laying ourselves upon the altar in full surrender as Isaac had to do, trusting Him for the outcome. Only then will God be able to make His promises true in us and through us.

Leave everything behind, let the world go by, flee from the things of this earthly life, don't fall in the snares of sin and of the evil one. Focus only on that which matters, for the end is in sight. Reach out and grab His Hand, never to let go. The King is coming, The Bridegroom is at the door expecting to see His Bride without spot and wrinkle...
For the Glory of God,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
