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.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
