“Is anything too hard for the LORD?” Genesis 18:14
Her husband is an atheist. His daughter is a lesbian. Your best friends are considering becoming Muslim. These situations and a thousand more dot our lives like stickers in the lawn. They’re painful, and we pick our way around them trying to hang on to joy. We may continue to pray about them, but in reality, we often write “The End” over seemingly impossible situations.
That’s what Sarah had done with the idea of ever becoming a mother. Even when God got in her face and said, “If I said it, I will do it,” she laughed. It wasn’t a happy laugh. It was a “Yeah, right,” laugh and God did not appreciate it. He doesn’t appreciate our snarky attitudes either. When we confine the Lord God Almighty to our teensy understanding, we make a big mistake.
God is in the miracle business, but when He doesn’t perform on our schedule, we get cynical like Sarah. We secretly answer this Bible question with, “Yes, some things may be too hard for the Lord.” When we hit a concrete wall, we assume God has too.
But the truth is, atheists can be born again. Ask Lee Strobel.
Lesbians can repent and live purely. Ask Rosaria Butterfield.
Muslims can have their eyes opened to the truth of Jesus. Ask Nabeel Quereshi.
If God can put a baby inside the uterus of a 90-year-old woman, and from that baby, create a nation that still exists today, then He can handle your problem.
What concrete wall in your life looks too hard for the Lord?
Is it harder than what He did for Sarah?
