Isaiah 59:1 (NIV) ~ Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.

This verse immediately brings to remembrance the story of Peter from Matthew chapter 14, where Jesus reached out his hand and caught him just as he was beginning to sink. There is also the time when Jesus reached out His hand and healed someone. The Scripture brings the blessed assurance to every believer that His arm is more than able to save, to heal and set free.
To say that the arm of LORD is too short to save is to suggest that God has limitations. However, the truth is that the arm of the LORD does not have limitations, nor does it ever fall short of the power to save.  When Peter cried out to Jesus to save him, did the arm of the LORD fall short, and fail to help Peter? When the sick person came to Jesus, was His arm unable to reach out and touch the sick person to heal them? His arm is not too short to save or heal. The Bible says in Jeremiah 32:17 (NIV), “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”
It was with an outstretched arm that God showed his great power and delivered Israel from the hand of the Egyptians. Even in the book of Acts, the Apostles prayed unto the Lord in Acts 4:30 (NIV), “Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
My friend, the arm of the LORD is stretched out to you today in an act of Divine love to save you. May the healing touch from the outstretched arm of the LORD minister to your every need. His ear is attentive to your cry for help, and like Peter, He will reach out and save you if you ever feel you are sinking. No situation is too extreme for God to show His awesome power to resolve. No sickness is too difficult to heal, and no soul too lost to save. For surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, for He made the heavens and the earth by His great power and outstretched arm and there is nothing too difficult that He cannot do for you today.
God bless you my friend, Matthew.
