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.

Zechariah 13:9 “This third I will put into the fire; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. They will call on my name and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’ ”
Zechariah 9:9, 10 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Ezra 3:12, 13 But many of the older priests and Levites and family heads, who had seen the former temple, wept aloud when they saw the foundation of this temple being laid, while many others shouted for joy. No one could distinguish the sound of the shouts of joy from the sound of weeping, because the people made so much noise. And the sound was heard far away.
Daniel 2:30 “As for me, this mystery has been revealed to me, not because I have greater wisdom than anyone else alive, but so that Your Majesty may know the interpretation and that you may understand what went through your mind.”
