IS IT TOO HARD?
Gen. 18:1-14
Is anything too hard for the Lord? [ Gen. 18:14

Abraham had his personal challenge, but he did not allow it to prevent him from meetng the needs of others. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwitngly entertained angels (Heb. 13:2). Abraham displayed such great hospitality, even though he wasn’t aware of the good that would come out of it. It turned out to be an opportunity for Abraham and his wife to receive the fnal word for their long awaited son, and for Abraham to intercede for Sodom and Gomorrah.

God is able to perform that which He has promised. The prevailing situaton may seem insurmountable but there is no situaton too hard for God to handle. Abraham and Sarah had no child and they were very old. The Lord visited them and gave Abraham a word: Sarah your wife shall have a son (v. 10). She was amused, being aware of their ages and the fact that she was long past the age of having children (v. 11-12).

The Lord saw her reacton and asked the queston: Is there anything too hard for the Lord? (v. 14) God is looking at your heart today. There is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account (Heb. 4:13). Is there an issue in your life that you secretly consider too hard for God to handle? The road to victory may not be easy but God will certainly go with you all the way. He will never leave you, forsake you, nor disappoint you. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Ps. 30:5). No mater how long the night seems to be, the morning will break forth. Be strong in the Lord.

Prayer:Father, grant me the grace to keep trustng You, to exercise my faith in spite of glaring challenging evidences. Help me to cooperate with You as You lead, guide and direct me. Thank you for giving me joy.

Confession:Through God’s mighty power at work within me, He is able to carry out His purpose and do superabundantly, far over and above all that I can ask or think-infnitely beyond my highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes and dreams. My trust is in God; I will never be ashamed.
