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: 

Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm.
Nothing is too hard for you.

Listen carefully as God declares 

“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”

Practice the presence of God and the joy of discovery in response to 33:3: 

Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

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.

I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
