Round Two--Nothing Impossible

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Genesis 18:9-15

On Tuesday, in response to our reading of God telling Abraham that he would have a son through Sarah who would be a father of nations, I wrote about how God's thoughts, timing and way of doing things are different than ours. The situation presented to Abraham was a totally unlikely scenario from a human perspective—but with God all things are possible, which Abraham recognizes.

Today in Chapter 18, Sarah hears firsthand that she is going to conceive and have a son with Abraham. Sarah is now the ripe old age of 90, and her response to hearing this news is quite human. As I read these verses, it seems to me like she's a bit sarcastic. I get that, because she's been praying for years to have a child and God hasn't acted on her petitions. And now, when she is physically no longer able to conceive ("The way of women had ceased to be with Sarah," vs. 11), God delivers the message that she is going to get pregnant and have a baby boy. From our human perspective it sounds kind of crazy. But again—nothing is impossible with God!

So one more time: do you have a God-given dream or desire that seems impossible to you? If so, keep praying about it. What have you learned or noticed from Genesis 17 and 18 about seemingly impossible circumstances when God is involved? How have these passages encouraged you and/or changed your perspective about what you can do or accomplish with God? Tami

"Is anything too hard for the Lord?"
or as you have said,Tami "—nothing is impossible with God!"

I have seen God do the impossible in my life.

Yes it is always good to be reminded being cemented in my memory that God is in control and He is the One Who can do the impossible while it is humanly impossible with man.
I would like to share a time when my husband was to see his doctor to see if his thoracic aorta aneurysm had enlarged or stayed the same ( while my husband having more faith than me was praying that it would shrink. I had read human's reasoning that said it NEVER shrinks... knowing our theme for today Tami and all, you know what the results were! YES it indeed shrunk and my husband received the call on his cell phone with the good news and everyone in the room heard the good news too and my husband responded to the nurse " Praise the Lord!! It shrunk!! Of course, my husband had to tell the surprised shoppers who had shocked looks on their faces.After sharing what God had done (that was impossible with man,but NOT God!) What a great way to give the Lord the glory and praise due to His name. This good news meant no surgery for my husband!! PTL!!

It is WONDERFUL to worship and praise the Lord Who can do anything!!

I to have a request that has not been answered, but I trust that an all knowing God will do what is best for us, for his glory. I will keep praising Him.
