“Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Genesis 18:14
Abraham and Sarah had grown old together without Sarah ever having her own child. It was their dream to have their own child. Years before God had promised Abraham that he would be the father of many nations, yet this did not seem to happen.
When Abraham was ninety-nine and his wife was ninety, the Lord comes to them and tells them they will have a child the next year. Sarah laughs because she knows how old she is and is past the age of having children. It is something impossible. The Lord asks the question of whether anything is too hard for God to do.
Many people overcome some major obstacles in their lives to accomplish some great things. However, there are some things that cannot be overcome by anyone. So far, no one has completely overcome death. No one has ever been able to walk through a wall without destroying the wall.
Life is full of challenges. Some you will be able to get through on your own, others will require God’s help. Jesus beat death and did walk through a wall.
God may give you a promise about something in your life. Looking at your life it may look like an impossibility. Yet, with God all things are possible. With Sarah, at her age, having a child was an impossibility, but with God it was possible, and she did have a child.
Do not look at the impossibility or the roadblocks on the way to something God has called you too. Look at how big God is and how powerful He is. As many reasons you may come up with as to why something cannot happen, God has many more reasons why He can make it happen.
Ask yourself today, ‘Is anything to hard for the Lord’?
Trust Him today and see what He can do.
I pray today that God will reveal His power to you; that you will know that God can do anything; that you will trust what God has promised you will happen; and that you will not doubt God in anything.
