Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord?

Is Anything Too Hard for the Lord? (1685)

In Genesis 18, God promises the barren Abraham and Sarah a child in their old age. This was so unbelievable, so miraculous, that when she heard this promise, Sarah laughed. In verse 13 she says, “‘Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?”

Sarah’s question prompts an even greater question from God in verse 14: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

Jeremiah 32:17 answers this question beautifully: “…Thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm. There is nothing too hard for thee.”

Consider the majesty of God’s limitless power:

There is no promise too hard for God to fulfill.
There is no prayer too hard for God to answer.
There is no problem too big for God to solve.
There is no person too hard for God to save.
Yet, if there’s nothing too hard for God, why doesn’t it happen? Because men limit God. Psalm 78:41 says, “Yeah, they turned back and tempted God and limited the Holy One of Israel.”

How is it possible for the Creator to be limited by his creature? Because He allows it; He allows Himself to be chained and bound, restricted from working in our lives.

We chain Him with our unwillingness. God will not force Himself upon you. He wants to bless you, but you must be willing to receive it.

We chain Him with unconcern. When we are completely indifferent, it breaks His heart, because He cannot move in an apathetic life.

We chain Him with unreasonableness, our prejudices, pre-conceived ideas. We do not want to give up our dirt for His diamonds.

We chain Him with uncleanliness. Unconfessed, un-repented of sin keeps God from blessing us and working with us.

We chain Him with our unbelief. Adrian Rogers says, “Faith is the channel through which the risen Lord pours His life into you. But you will tie His hands by unbelief. Faith is the key that causes the shackles to fall from the hands of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Apply it to your life
Have you ever limited the Lord’s work in your life? Have you chained Him with unwillingness, unconcern, unreasonableness, uncleanliness or unbelief? Examine your heart and your life today and choose to unleash God’s limitless power in your own life.
