“But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day,” says the Lord. “I will put my laws in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.” – Jeremiah 31:33


God can do a new thing! He told Jeremiah that He would make a new covenant in the future that would far surpass the old one. Today we are living under that new covenant. God has put His law in our minds and written it on our hearts. He has forgiven our wickedness and will remember our sins no more (Jeremiah 31:34).

At a time when the nation of Israel was being invaded, God directed Jeremiah to buy a piece of property. Jeremiah purchased the land, placed the deed in a jar, and buried it. The Lord promised that once again Israel would return to the land, and the deed would then be worth something. Jeremiah responded to the Lord and to this incredible promise by saying, “Nothing is too hard for you!” (Jeremiah 32:17). God agreed with this assessment, saying, “I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?” (v. 27).

Have you lost all hope? God can and will do the impossible. If He can forgive your sins forever, He can fix your problems right now. Place your confidence in His strong covenant. Absolutely nothing is too difficult for God!


Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity. – 1 Timothy 2:2

Prayer is the foundation of a godly society. Paul admonished us to offer prayers for kings and all those in authority. When we pray for our rulers, they become softened to the purposes of God, respectful to the Church, and honest and just in their lawmaking.

A peaceful and quiet society is the best environment in which the lost may be saved. When Satan is influencing government, wicked laws are passed, anarchy rules, and the Church is persecuted. Preaching the Word, printing Bibles, and establishing churches are forbidden in that environment.

God our Savior “wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth” (1 Timothy 2: 4). He sent His Son as a ransom for all men and women (v. 6), and thus He desires nations to be open to the preaching of the Gospel. Whenever we come together with other believers, we should pray specifically for each nation and ruler “with holy hands lifted up to God, free from anger and controversy” (v. 8).

A praying church, an open government, a perfect sacrifice, and an obedient preacher will bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth and usher in Jesus’ return to reap the harvest!
