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.” Genesis 18:13-14 (NIV)
A Good Question
That is a good question. What is a good question? Is anything too hard for you? Why is that a good question? It may not be a good question to ask. It is certainly a good question to consider. It is a good question for me to have answered in my heart and mind. I like where you are headed, say more. I need to have answered and resolved in my heart and mind that you can and will do the impossible in, for, and through me. I need to have faith to believe that you can and will do in, for and through me what only you can do. I need to know that you delight and desire to do in, for and through me what only you can do. Why do you suppose it is my desire and delight to do in, for and through you what only I can do? You want to show yourself to me. You want to reveal yourself to the world. You want people to turn their hearts and minds and lives toward you. You want people to leave their old lives of sin so that they can love, follow and serve you. Yes, I do.
What has happened to you as I have done in, for and through you what only I could do? I have been encouraged. I have been lifted up. I have been strengthened. I have been revived and renewed and refreshed. My heart and mind and life have been filled with hope and joy and peace. Thanks, and praise to you have been on my lips. My faith in you has grown as I have relied on you to do what was impossible. I have been made able to bear fruit for your kingdom. I have been made able to bring glory to your name. I have been able to shine brightly for you, like a star in the universe. Yes, I have done all of these things in, for and through you.
What will you now do differently because you know that nothing is too hard for me? I will come to rely on you more fully. I will ask you to do in, for and through me what only you can do. My heart and mind and eyes will be open with expectancy to watch for and join you in the seemingly impossible work that you want to do in the world around me. That will be very good.
Lord, I know nothing is too hard for you. To think or believe otherwise would be foolish. Help me to have faith to believe that nothing is too hard for you to do in, for, or through. I will come to ask you for your help. I will rely fully on you. My faith will be in you. Amen
