Restoring The Impossible

Jeremiah 32:17

“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 was a prophet in Jerusalem before it’s destruction in 586 BC. He suffered continual rejection, imprisonment and physical abuse but he foretold that God would establish a new covenant with His people and this prophecy was fulfilled through Christ. In the tenth year of his reign the Lord spoke to Jeremiah, through Anathoth, his cousin, to purchase a field. According to custom, the deed was placed in a pottery jar for preservation and the Jeremiah, prayed this prayer to His God.

“Ah sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by Your power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”.

With this purchase he was making an investment in the future that God had promised as well as a declaration of faith in the Lord’s words for the restoration of His people. His prayer was calm, affirming and worshipful and Jeremiah was confident that a difficult situation placed in the sovereign hands of One who fashioned the whole of heaven and earth could and would fulfill His promise.

Are you in need of restoration? A family, a life, a church, a job, a business? What’s in your life that seems impossible to restore? Place it in the potter’s hands for safe keeping and pray as Jeremiah prayed. Let a Sovereign God, who is in control of all things fulfill His promise of restoration. Nothing is too difficult for the creator of life and all things. The Sovereign, all knowing God who made you, is quite capable of sustaining you. He won’t beg to help and He won’t interfere, but He stands ready and waiting for the invite to come along beside and lift you above the circumstances if need be…He’s a God of reconciliation and restoration. Let Him do what He does so well.

Have the past few days taken you to wearisome places and places of unsettled unrest? Tight corners, time pressures, broken moments and frustrations laced with disappointment and pained experience? The Psalmist knew of a safe place to hide away from it all ~ even just for a few minutes of reprieve! That highest place that one can go for protection ~ into the shelter of the Host High God to rest in the shadow of the Almighty. It’s here where we can regain strength for the next round of life. The God who knows all knows how weary it all can be for our humanity and yes, He knows just how much we can take and doles out just enough of His divine, sustaining grace to get us through.

In the shelter of the Most High God! What a magnificent, glorious place of refuge. It’s only here in His shadow, under His wing that we will find that protection from the enemy’s snares. It’s only nestled close to Him that we find divine peace and much needed rest that the worries of the day rob from us. He alone is our salvation and in Him, we need not fear the terror of the day or the pestilence of the night. Oh but life is so heavy and we can get so weary can’t we? Yet ~ He is so faithful to carry us through and by His grace He will protect, He will deliver, He will satisfy and He will command His angels to guard us in all our ways. Beautiful soul, It doesn’t get any better than this. “In the shelter of the Most High,” .. What an absolutely, exquisite, astounding, awesome place to hang out!!!!

Psalm 91:1

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”
