"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

It is Friday again, and looking over the week, it has been good. I am sure the anticipation of SPRING is a major influence on my outlook each day. Last Sunday the family gathered to create the grocery list for our trip to North Captive. Because we are going to an island, we get there by a boat - there will not be an opportunity to just spontaneously go to the store. Hard to begin to imagine all the food needed for 8 adults, and 6 kids (2 of which eat like adults!) What an adventure!
encouragement from Joel, even when the days are good ... it helps to know that HE is always working for us behind the scenes working for us - and he does amazing and wonderful things.
There's Nothing too Hard for Him
"Is any thing too hard for the LORD?..." (Genesis 18:14, KJV).
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In Genesis, God promised Sarah that she was going to have a child. At first she didn’t believe it. She thought she was too old. She thought her time had passed. But do you know what God said to her? He simply asked, “Sarah, is there anything too hard for the Lord?” I believe God is saying the same thing to us today. “Is there anything too hard for Me?”
Do you think your dreams are too big for God to bring to pass? Do you think that a relationship is too far gone for God to restore it? Do you think you have to just live with sickness the rest of your life? Get a new vision today because there is nothing too hard for God! God is saying today, “I am all-powerful. I can turn any situation around.” It doesn’t matter what things look like in the natural, we serve a supernatural God. The Amplified version puts it this way, “Is there anything too wonderful for the Lord?” The next time you think, “That’s just too good to be true,” remember, God wants to bless you beyond your wildest dreams. Take the limits off and dare to believe that He has wonderful things in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, I choose to trust You with my whole heart. I know there is nothing too hard for You. Help me to stand strong in faith and keep me close to You all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
