Jeremiah 32:27 – “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”
Most people peg snowboarders and skiers as “extreme” and “adrenaline junkies.” I’ve never related to that. I’ve been a snowboard addict for most of my life, but I don’t like the nervous feeling of being out of control. I hate the feeling as I wait to drop into a big cliff, jump, or a heavy rail. I like the other end of it – stomping the trick. I’m a control freak. I enjoy learning how to have more control over my board so I can conquer a new trick or stomp an old trick with more confidence.
In our life, God is in control. Jeremiah 32:27 says, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?” God has the ultimate “board control” over this world. When life gets rough, we need to remember that. Maybe right now you are at a place in your life where there is a huge cliff out in front of you. You know you’re going to have to send it, but it’s terrifying and your stomach is in knots. Trust in the Lord. Is anything too hard for Him? No – the Lord Jesus even defeated death. He defeated death for you. You don’t have to fear, God is in control of your life and of your eternity!
1) What is your biggest fear in life? Do you have any real-life, practical, “cliffs” in your near future?
2) Do you believe God is in control of your life? What are a few practical, real-life steps you can take that show that you trust God’s plan for you?
