“Where is your wife Sarah?” they asked him. “There, in the tent,” he said. Then one of them said, “I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah your wife will have a son.” Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him. Abraham and Sarah were already very old, and Sarah was past the age of childbearing. So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?” Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
Sarah and Abraham had been promised for decades that they would have a son and from that son Abraham and Sarah’s descendants would outnumber the stars in the heavens. Sarah is well advanced in years, way beyond childbearing, and now when she feels dried up as a prune the Lord tells them that a year from now Sarah will be holding her newborn son. I can understand their doubt. Maybe that is the problem, we try to filter God’s Word through our understanding instead of just standing upon His Word. He is God and we are not! During times that are way beyond my understanding I cherish the simple and profound statement, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”
We are living in unstable times and I know that I need to stand upon the fact that NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR MY LORD! Amen and Amen!!!!
