~Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?~


"Is anything Too Hard for the Lord?" Genesis 18:14

This is God's loving challenge to you and me each day. He wants us to think of the deepest, highest, and worthiest desires and longings of our hearts. He wants us to think of those things that perhaps were desires for ourselves or someone dear to us, yet have gone unfulfilled for so long that we now see them as simply lost desires. And God urges us to think of even the one thing that we once saw as possible, but have given up all hope of seeing fulfilled in this life.

That very thing, as long as it aligns with what we know to be His expressed will--as a son was to Abraham and Sarah--God intends to do for us. Yes, if we will let Him. God will do that very thing, even if we know it is such an utter impossibility that we would simply laugh at the absurdity of anyone every suggesting it could come to pass.

Is anything too hard for the Lord?" No, nothing is too difficult when we believe in Him enough to go forward, doing His will and letting Him do the impossible for us. Even Abraham and Sarah could have blocked God's plan if they had continued to disbelieve.

The only thing "too hard for the Lord" is our deliberate and continual disbelief in His love and power, and our ultimate rejection of His plans for us. Nothing is impossible for Jehovah to do for those who trust Him. Taken from Messages for the Morning Watch (Streams in the Desert)

Janet had her MRI this evening. Tomorrow will be: Blood work, oncology appointment and endocrinology appointment. They have a full day. PLEASE JOIN US IN PRAYING FOR THIS DESIRE FOR WONDERFUL ASTOUNDING RESULTS ON MRI, BLOOD WORK AND ENDOCRINE APPOINTMENT.

NOTHING IS TOO BIG FOR OUR GOD!
