Genesis 18:9-15 – Is anything too hard for God?

Gen 18:9  And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

Gen 18:10  And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

Gen 18:11  Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

Gen 18:12  Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

Gen 18:13  And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

Gen 18:14  Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Gen 18:15  Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

 

 

 

 

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

 

That is a fairly simple question. Is anything too hard for Him?

What is anything?

Is it math problems?

Is it housework?

Our work?

Our job?

Our family?

Our relationships?

The answer is actually anything.

We can put a blank in the place of anything with respect of what God will do.

Many times God tells us who He is by these two words. “I AM”and that can be an incomplete sentence for the believer because to a Christian,(one who is called according to His purpose) Romans 8:28 = All Things are possible. All things that we ask within His will and that pertain to His will for us. (John 16:23-24.)

We shouldn’t just sprinkle His name in prayer for just anything. This should mean that we mean business. This is something that we need. Something to honor God and help others, not for an expensive car, or a bigger house. “I Am” does not include “a genie” and we shouldn’t treat God this way. He is not our 24 hour wish granter.

Our anything can be something we don’t like to do

Our anything might hurt us

God will accomplish anything in our lives that we will allow Him to and we must remember that sometimes anything hurts, but it is for our greater good if we are in Christ.

Our anything can also be our mistakes.

Romans 8:28 says “With God, anything, everything, ALL THINGS are possible” even when we screw up, when we come to God with the right heart, He can make our wrongs right so we can’t dwell on that mistake we made all those years ago or that sin that we acted on last night. The important thing is this: “Did you make it right with the Lord?”

Our anything is nothing without God (Mark 10:27)

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

God asked this question in Genesis and we get the answer in the birth of Jesus(Luke 1:37)

With God NOTHING is impossible!!!!!!!
