Is anything too hard for the Lord?
It’s an overcast, wet afternoon as I sit here contemplating and asking the Lord
what to write about this week.
I have considered writing on gentleness and brokenness; courage and
counseling; hope and creativity. But then I felt this word come – ‘is anything
too hard for the Lord?’ Hmmm.
Genesis 18:14 is the first record of this question. Verse 13 begins with “Then
the Lord said to Abraham, ‘Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say ‘can an old
woman like me have a baby?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return
about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” What a beautiful
promise! What joyful anticipation for the fulfillment of this word to Abraham
Jeremiah 32:27, again we see this word “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all
flesh, is anything too hard for Me?” Whilst this word came to Jeremiah about
the handing over of the city to the Babylonians because of the sinfulness of the
people, we see further in this chapter in verse 37 following, that the Lord tells
of His ultimate intention. He will bring the people back to live in peace and
safety; giving them one heart and one purpose – to worship Him forever,
making an everlasting covenant with them and He will never stop doing good
We do live in challenging and uncertain times, however in the midst of what’s
happening around us in this world, we can trust in the promises of our Lord
and Friend, that, indeed “nothing is too difficult for the Lord”.
He Who is faithful, has promised to never leave nor forsake us; to supply all
your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus; to deliver us out of
all our afflictions and lead us in triumph as He teaches us to be over-comers.
What do you need? He says ‘ ask and you will receive’, cast all your cares on
Him for He cares for you.’, ‘in due season you will reap if you faint not’.
Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God is with you the Mighty Warrior who saves”
May you be filled with His loving and powerful Presence this week.
