Question the Lord Asked [3]: Is anything too difficult for the LORD?


Read:  Is anything too difficult for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, [b]at this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” Gen 18:14

Examine:  The LORD appeared to Abraham at the sacred trees of Mamre when he was around 100 years and after the promise, he had been waiting for a son for the last 25 years. As Abraham was sitting at the entrance of his, he looked up and saw three men standing there. As soon as he saw them, he ran out to meet them. Bowing down with his face touching the ground, he said, “Sirs, please do not pass by my home without stopping; I am here to serve you. Let me bring some water for you to wash your feet; you can rest here beneath this tree. I will also bring a bit of food; it will give you strength to continue your journey. You have honored me by coming to my home, so let me serve you.”

They replied, “Thank you; we accept.” Abraham hurried into the tent and said to Sarah, “Quick, take a sack of your best flour, and bake some bread.” Then he ran to the herd and picked out a calf that was tender and fat, and gave it to a servant, who hurried to get it ready. He took some cream, some milk, and the meat, and set the food before the men. There under the tree he served them himself, and they ate.

Then they asked him, “Where is your wife Sarah?” “She is there in the tent,” he answered. One of them said, “Nine months from now[a] I will come back, and your wife Sarah will have a son.”

Then the LORD asked Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Can I really have a child when I am so old?’ Is anything too hard for the LORD? As I said, nine months from now I will return, and Sarah will have a son.” Because Sarah was afraid, she denied it. “I didn’t laugh,” she said “Yes, you did,” he replied. “You laughed.”

Application: Lord’s promises will never fail, but the way it might get fulfilled, might not be the way we expect. In Abraham’s case the wait was 25 years and delay were too long, in human logic there is no more chance for anything to be fulfilled. At the most unexpected time Lord came to fulfill the promise.

Decision: Lord help me to believe in your promises and also depend on your promises. Teach to listen to you Lord and be in your presence. Help me to understand your way and time is perfect and teach me your wisdom and patience. Let the question be my strength – Is anything too [a]difficult for the LORD?
