We can pray higher than we do. We can approach God with a confident hope knowing that nothing is too hard for Him. Most of us know He can do anything, but few of us really pray like He can. We pray as high as we believe, and if we are honest, we don’t believe as much as we should.
This last week the Lord reminded me of this word from Scripture: Jeremiah prayed, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You” (Jeremiah 32:17 NKJV).
I started to pray for many things this day, and after each prayer I would say, “There is nothing too hard for You.” As I continued in my prayer, I was reminded of all the impossible prayers I have prayed and how many of them He had answered. We need to believe higher than we do.
Pray to His limits, not yours. “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27 NKJV).
We need to pray higher than what is possible so we will have no choice but to give God all the credit for what only He could have done. We need to lose the unholy idea that we need to make our prayers easier so that they won’t be such a burden to God.
Nothing is impossible for God, and it is to that height we should pray to. “But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible’” (Mark 10:27 NKJV).
The Lord wants us to trust Him, and there is no greater test than for us to pray our needs before Him, no matter how crazy they might seem. The world is faced with the impossible, and they give up. God’s children should never give up because God can do anything.
Be stubborn in your prayers, not willing to give up until they’re answered. The parable of the persistent widow: “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up” (Luke 18:1 NIV).
When we are faced with a health crisis, our Lord specializes in emergency services. God can create us, and so we can be sure that God can cure us no matter what it is that we are facing. Make your requests known to God and believe He can do them, and let Him decide what He will do.
I don’t need to prove my prayers can bring healing but only have faith that His power can. “If you have faith when you pray for sick people, they will get well. The Lord will heal them, and if they have sinned, he will forgive them.” (James 5:15 CEV).
Sometimes we are faced with a relationship issue that seems impossible to overcome. Believe that God can make a friend out of an enemy and turn hearts just like He turns mighty rivers. Make your prayers known to God and let Him intervene, as He knows best what to do.
Sometimes we’re not meant to overcome our enemy but to win them over. The Lord Jesus taught us, “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may prove yourselves to be sons of your Father who is in heaven…” (Matthew 5:43-45 NASB).
When we are faced with frustration or humiliation, our God can make it out to be something for our good. He can change the person, or He can change us, and all we need do is trust Him. As we trust Him with a thing, we will be set free from the thing and find peace in the midst of our trial.
It’s hard to be frustrated about things you’ve given to the Lord. “Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 TPT).
No matter what it is you have before you, simply take it to the Lord in prayer. And when you pray to Him, after each request, remind Him of the words Jeremiah spoke, “Nothing is too hard for You.” Let those words be a reminder to you as well, and pray knowing God can do the impossible.
In whatever weighs you down, remember Who you are praying to. “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You” (Jeremiah 32:17 NKJV).
Blessings to you,
