Sarah laughed when she was reminded about the promise that God gave her. She had given up hope that she could ever become pregnant. At 90 years old it was biologically impossible to have a son. Sarah waited for years for the promise child to be born but was instead barren. It could have been that she misunderstood God’s word, or maybe there was just something wrong with her. Either way, her reaction was more out of despair than exuberance. It was then that the Lord responded with a powerful word in Genesis 18:14: “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?” Now the nation of Israel is populated today because God keeps his word.
Today this scripture may just be God’s response to your impossible circumstance. Someone may have given up on that family issue. Or a doctor may have shared a grim report. There are many struggling to find a job and have serious financial worries. Others are concerned about the future of our country. Whatever the situation, the question still remains for us all. Is there anything too hard for the Lord? If he can create the heavens and the earth in just six days, than he can do anything. The God who parted the Red Sea can make a way for us. Since he feeds the sparrows and clothes the lilies of the field, he will take care of our needs.
It is our faith that will carry us through difficult times. Do not try to tackle your challenges on your own. God cares about what you go through and wants you to look to him. He may not move when you want him to or answer your prayers the way you expect. It is not time to give up because the Lord keeps his promises. They will come to pass in his timing and will fulfill his plan. Put your trust in his word and be willing to wait upon the Lord. He will be your rock, your anchor, and your great reward. Your faith will be more profitable than the powerball and will lead to a marvelous end. Expect God to do great things with your faith this year because there is nothing too hard for him.
