April 16–It Is NOT Too Difficult!

We often make things so much more difficult than they really are.

Sadly, this thinking–that things are too difficult for us–can even be pervasive when it comes to living out our life as a believer in Jesus Christ.

Yet God tells us that it is not too difficult to live out our faith relationship with Him. It is not too difficult to trust God. It is not too difficult to obey God.

God has not left us alone to live as His people in our own strength! Oh, no! That would be too difficult. Rather, God in His love and perfect provision has given us the intimacy of His very present Holy Spirit and the power of His Word to surround us, fill us, strengthen us, heal us and transform us! 

God may–and often does–take us out of our comfort zones in order to transform us more and more into the likeness of our Lord Jesus. But as God does this, He is always, always very near to us offering His comfort so that in His presence and through His love and power nothing is too difficult!  

God never said that our life and our circumstances would always be easy. They’re not. But they are not, and never will be, too difficult for us when we trust and obey our Mighty God.

Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach…No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. Deuteronomy 30:11, 14

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
