The LORD God of all flesh
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me? – Jeremiah 32:27 (Amp)
Flesh. A bad word in the vocabulary of a Christian. Heard, read and was advised many times about how one should not yield to the flesh.
So, it always confused me why the LORD would call Himself as the the LORD God of all flesh. Then the Spirit of the LORD opened my eyes and, oh, how gracious our LORD is.
For a long time, Jeremiah was prophesying that the Babylonians would take the Jews captive. No one believed him. Then the Babylonians came. They had captured the entire Jewish country and their capital, Jerusalem, was under siege. Finally, the prophetic words of Jeremiah were coming true.
At this moment, the LORD commanded Jeremiah to buy a piece of land which was captured by the Babylonians. Jeremiah obeyed the Lord, but was confused. Won’t the history judge him as a fool? For buying a land that was captured by the enemy, about which he himself had prophesied so long? For which he was in prison? In his confusion, he took his petition to the Lord and this is the LORD’s answer: I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for me?
We must not follow the path of flesh. But there are times, we get confused in our life. There are times we question the path in which the LORD is leading us. We struggle with our unbelief. Our flesh which is weak, whispers in our hearts, that the LORD has forgotten His promises, that He has forsaken us. Depression sets in. Prayers are seen as fruitless. Our spirit fights with us, telling us to have more faith. But, we are not able to. Then we feel bad for doubting the Lord and we are ashamed.
But in all these, the gracious voice of the LORD tells us this: I Am still the LORD God of all flesh. Yes, we may be ashamed of our doubts and weaknesses, but the LORD knows that. For HE is our Maker. So, instead of reprimanding us, He tells us graciously, “I am still your LORD God; there is anything too hard for Me?” What a great loving God we serve! Halleluiah!
