5/21 Days Of Prayer
Genesis 18:13-14 NKJV – And the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I surely bear a child, since I am old? Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
God appears to Sarah when she is 90 years old and announces that she is about to be pregnant. There are alot of things a 90 year old woman is planning, but giving birth doesn’t even come close to the top 100 things on her list. My response would have been even more outrageous than laughter if God had been speaking to me! God’s response is so simple, “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?” There have been many seasons in my life where my responses to God’s promises have been like Sarah’s. I have felt like I am behind, and the opportunities to accomplish the dreams inside of me have passed. In those times I remind myself that God’s power is much bigger than the timeline I have created for my life!
God’s response is the same for any situation you are facing today. There is no problem that God can not solve. His power is never limited by your situational circumstances. If you need financial provision, God is not limited by your lack of resources. If you feel trapped in the same cycle, God is strong enough to set you free!
Look at these scriptures and take time to reflect on what God is able to do for you.
- Are there things you feel like haven’t happened according to your timeline? How can you trust God’s timeline above your own?
- What does it look like to give Jesus your “loaves” and “fish” so that He can multiply it?
- What is a situation that has you feeling trapped? What would it look like to praise God in faith that God’s power will free you?
Declare: There is nothing too hard for my God!
