Daily Reading – Genesis 18 – 20 / Matthew 6:16-34
Genesis 18:14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Isn’t it amazing what little children see in their parents. Little boys especially will argue that their daddy is able to do superhuman feats. This hero in their eyes can outrun, out jump, out fight, out climb, and just out-and-out do anything better that anyone else’s daddy. Even if their daddy is five foot nothing and weighs a total of one hundred pounds soaking wet, and the opponent’s daddy is ginormous, it did not matter. Little children want to believe their daddy is the best. As they grow older and the reality that their daddy may not be the best at everything, respect for who he is and what he does, should replace that childhood fantasy. Parents should always be special in the eyes of their children. Honor thy father and mother.
However, if you are a child of God, then your Heavenly Father can do anything. Anything that He decides is worthy of doing. God told Abraham and Sarah that they were going to have a son in their old age. They both laughed at the idea. Abraham in Genesis 17:17 and Sarah laughed in Genesis 18:12. Yet God reminds them that He is God. In Genesis 18:14 He asks a rhetorical question; “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?” It might be good for us to be reminded from time to time during our toughest trials or our greatest temptations in life, just who our heavenly Father is. When it comes to a question of Power, Your Heavenly Father has all that is necessary.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
Jesus reminded us of this same truth in Matthew 28:18 “…All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Yup, if we as the children of God need help, we have a reliable source in our Heavenly Father.
Is there anywhere else we could get better help?
