Daily D – Jeremiah 32:17, 27; 33:3
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. (NIV)
**Jeremiah 32:27 I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? (NIV)
**Jeremiah 33:3** Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. (NIV)
Prayerlessness is indifference. Prayerlessness is carelessness. Prayerlessness is heedlessness.
If we put a little effort into it, we could come up with a few more “lessnesses.”
The three verses at the top of the page today are among people’s favorite verses to memorize. It would do us well to revisit these chapters. Chapter 32 in particular is a message of judgment and disaster. God shows Jeremiah what lies on the other side of disaster but first comes disaster. It would be good to understand what caused the disaster and avoid similar behavior and mindsets.
Chapter 33 describes the restoration to come and the promise of the Messiah. (See verses 15 and following.)
Commit these verses to memory. Remember where they came from. Take full note of their context. Align your mind with God’s thoughts. Attune your heart to his love. Acknowledge the wonderful reality of 32:17:
Nothing is too hard for you.
Listen carefully as God declares
Practice the presence of God and the joy of discovery in response to 33:3:
God has invited you into his presence. He has made the way open and accessible by Jesus. This is a good day to learn how to pray. This is a good day to practice prayerfulness.
I will pray at all times with all kinds of prayer practices.
Our Father, teach us to pray in days of looming disaster and days of restoration. Teach us to pray now and always. Amen.

Leviticus 19:32-34 “Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the Lord. “Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land. Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself. Remember that you were once foreigners living in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.”
Luke 6:27-31 “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, offer the other cheek also. If someone demands your coat, offer your shirt also. Give to anyone who asks; and when things are taken away from you, don’t try to get them back. Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”
