Daily devotional: An easy thing for the Lord

Scripture
For this is what the Lord says: You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. This is an easy thing in the eyes of the Lord; he will also hand Moab over to you.
2 Kings 3:17-18 NIV

Observation
I love how God seems to often take situations that are impossible for man to contend with, so that we will be able to see His hand when He acts. The army of Israel was in a serious situation without water before they went to fight the Moabites. Yet the Lord not only tells them how He will take care of them, but He says it is an easy thing for Him. I am glad I serve the one and only God, for which nothing is difficult.

Application
Trust in the Lord with all my heart. Present my requests to Him with faith and confidence, knowing He has the power to act on my behalf.

Prayer
Lord, I am in awe time and time again as you rescue me, reach out to me, and answer my prayers. All things are easy in your eyes. Thank you for loving me, saving me, and caring for me.
