Is there anything too hard for the Lord?

After many years of being barren the Lord declares that Sarah within a year’s time would have a son (Genesis 18:-10-15).  Sarah heard this, saw her circumstance and laughed silently to herself.  She asked “How could a worn out woman like me have a baby? And when my master-my husband is also so old?” (Genesis 18:12). Sarah laughed because she saw how impossible her situation was by man’s standards.  In light of her natural limitations, the promise of the Lord seemed like a big joke…unattainable to say the least. The Lord knowing all things, asked Abraham why Sarah laughed and then asks, “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?”

What impossible situation are you dealing with now? What promises has the Lord made to you that contradicts the barren areas of your life? Are you doubting and laughing at these promises because you have chosen to believe and accept what you see as your final story?

God is not confined by time or any of our other limitations.  Let’s continue to ask this question when tempted to laugh and doubt, “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?”  In case you were wondering, the answer is a resounding NO!  Stop laughing at what God has promised. Begin to grab a hold of it by faith, declaring it with confidence, knowing there is nothing too hard for Him!

  1. Hello Anika, I popped by after reading one of your posts at Google (about allowing Jesus to redeem past pain). You challenged me then and this post challenges me again since I have let go of my faith regarding an “impossible” dream. I don’t think it is a coincidence that this should be the first post I read.
