  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...




Editorial: Nothing's Too Hard for God

Life’s problems often seem overwhelming. Whether it’s the economy, or illness, or broken relationships, your pain may be nearly unbearable. Maybe the world’s situations, such as wars and rumors of wars and natural disasters, have you wondering, Where is God? Trusting God has become more difficult because you don’t seem to get relief. Maybe you are even at the point of despair.

Don’t give up! God, in His Word, reminds us that “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27, NIV). And of course, the answer is a resounding no!

The Bible recounts over and over how God did the impossible.

He’s the Lord over nations. Time and again He intervened for the nation of Israel when they faced enemies more numerous than they.

He’s the Lord over life. He raised to life the son of the widow from Nain (Luke 7:14), and also raised Lazarus (John 11).

He’s the Lord over all diseases. He healed the lepers, restored sight to the blind, made the lame to walk, and the deaf to hear.

He’s the Lord over finances. He provided enough money in the mouth of a fish to pay taxes (Matthew 17:27).

He’s the Lord over nature. At His command, the Red Sea parted so His people could go through on dry land, and He stilled a raging storm on the Sea of Galilee.

He’s the God of the little things. He caused a lost ax head to float (2 Kings 6:1-7).

Yes, nothing’s too hard for God.

Nothing is too big for Him to take care of; nothing is too small for Him to notice. He’s the God of the many and the God of the one. And He faithfully shows His power and love and grace in our lives.

Everyone experiences seasons of pain, loss, disappointment, misunderstanding and deep need. I have found myself in such places many times. In those moments of abandoned hope, God met me with His grace, strength and mercy. The answers to my situation didn’t always come immediately, nor exactly as I had planned. But each answer was perfect. I soon realized that God was bigger than my problems and He was in control. Nothing’s too hard for Him.
