Picture this: 3 kings and 3 complete armies camped in the wilderness of Edom and there is no water…none. Several thousand men and animals with nothing to drink. So they call Elisha and ask him to inquire of God for them and, after an initial protest, he agrees. While the music plays the hand of the Lord comes upon Elisha and he prophesies that God will send water, mysteriously, and fill the streambed for them to drink. And then he says, “This is a light thing in the sight of the Lord. He will also give the Moabites into your hand” (3:18)
In today’s street vernacular one almost expects Elisha to say “Boom” at the end of that verse. Such a simple statement, such infinitely profound meaning. Filling streambeds with more than enough water for thousands to drink is a “light thing” to God…and…oh by the way, God will also give the army of Moab into your hand. Let us be reminded that nothing is too difficult for God. He is omnipotent!
Jeremiah 32:17 “Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.”
Jeremiah 32:27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?”
All of creation, the making of the heavens and the earth, were not difficult for God. He is the sovereign creator God and nothing is too difficult for him.
Remember that when things are difficult for you. They are not difficult for him. Place your trust in the one who is all-powerful and also loving, gracious, merciful, kind and holy. Rest in his unchangeableness.
Prayer: Father, thank you that you are who you are. You are Almighty God who made the heavens and the earth and all that is in them. You are righteous and holy. You are the God of all gods. Hallowed be your name. Lord, help me to trust in you and your power to rule in every affair of my life. Help me to rest in you. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
