Is anything too hard for God? I have been reading about Sarah in the Bible and there are some great lessons to learn about the Life of Sarah. Sarah is the wife of Abraham. She is considered to be faithful and listed to be on of the heroes of faith.
Abraham and Sarah were very old to have a child. As hard as it may seem, God promised them that they will have a child in their old age. God said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” Genesis 18:10 God is confirming His promise to Abraham that though they are already old, Abraham will still have a child.
“Sarah listening in the tent door which was behind him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age; and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have grown old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also.” Genesis 18:10-12
God mentioned a statement that is so profound that anyone who believes in God must stop and consider: He said: “Is anything too hard for the Lord!” Genesis 18:14
God is not limited by physical laws. God can say something and have the power to bring it to pass. This is why He confidently promised Abraham that he will have a son.
Isaiah 46:8-11 says: “Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is not other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say; My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please. From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.”
Like the life of Sarah, God made promises to us. As we ready the Bible, we can find a lot of promises that God gives to His people. Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” We can have the confidence and assurance that God will keep His promises.
So in times of trouble, you can always read your Bible and the promises of God and pray to Him according to His will and purpose.
The lesson from the life of Sarah is one that I hope you will hang onto, grasp and own. It is never too late, nor have we ever strayed too far, that God is not able to make good on all that He intends to do for you. You have a destiny and God’s response to you is no different than His response to Sarah when she laughed bearing a child in her old age. God said in verse, 18, “Is anything too difficult for the Lord?” The answer, of course, is “No.” Walk in that truth. Tony Evans.
