Our grandson on his fourth birthday was front and center with that magician, mesmerized by the seemingly impossible feats performed. Lately, he has been drawn to all things magic, including hats, capes and wands. But the awe on all of their sweet faces was priceless. These little boys were properly amazed but the parents were impressed as well with the slight of hand. Who doesn’t like to be astonished by what looks to be impossible?
Today’s verse describes not magic, but the miraculous. God’s power is evident in the creation of the heavens and the earth. No tricks or slight of hand were needed, only His incredible outstretched arm. The heavens and earth testify to His great miraculous power. By seeing and appreciating His power in creation, we can be assured that absolutely nothing is too hard for Him!
I have evidence of God’s power all around me. And yet, I am sometimes so accustomed to it that it no longer seems miraculous. Sure the sun will rise tomorrow morning. Of course, principles of gravity will continue to hold true. However, everything that God does is miraculous. Anything that is caused by the power of God is a “miracle.” But when His miracles become commonplace to me, than I can find myself wondering if something could be too hard for Him. I need to have that child-like wonder when seeing a caterpillar or gazing at the stars. When I do then my faith grows as I realize that NOTHING is too hard for Him to accomplish in my life!
Lord, help me to trust that nothing is too hard for You.
