Nothing Is Impossible With God

A favorite scripture of mine is the first part of Genesis 18:14 which says “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”  In this portion of scripture, Abraham was visited by three men, one of whom tells Abraham that by this time next year, Sarah will have a son. Sarah heard this and the Bible says she laughed silently to herself because she was an old woman past the child bearing age not to mention her husband was old too. To this, one of the men, whom the Bible says was the Lord, asked Abraham why Sarah laughed because after all, is anything too hard for the Lord? Now, we know that Sarah laughed because she had already gone through “the change of life” as we call it.  But did Sarah forget that, even in her child bearing years, she could not have children. As a young woman she was barren.  But the next year she did indeed bear a son.  So not only did God restore her body to it’s youth as far as reproduction goes, God also healed her from barrenness.  So what was done in Sarah’s body was even more miraculous than even she realized. So the next time you find yourself facing an impossible situation, don’t ask it like a question but state it as a fact – “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?”!

10 Then one of them said, “I will return to you about this time next year, and your wife, Sarah, will have a son!” Sarah was listening to this conversation from the tent. 11 Abraham and Sarah were both very old by this time, and Sarah was long past the age of having children. 12 So she laughed silently to herself and said, “How could a worn-out woman like me enjoy such pleasure, especially when my master—my husband—is also so old?” 13 Then the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say, ‘Can an old woman like me have a baby?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”  Genesis 18:10-14 (NLT)
