GENESIS 16-18

Focus Verse: “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”

Genesis 18:14

 

This is our problem today. We don’t believe the answer to this question is yes. We believe in a weak God.

The mobs of Christians around the world are picking up their stones right now.

I’m going to pose this one question though: IF you say your answer to this question is yes…SHOW ME! I firmly believe that the reason more people don’t believe that the Bible is a HISTORY book, and instead buy into the lie that these are a compilation of stories to inspire us and make us feel good, is because Christians have stopped believing this single truth. Sure, they will tell you they believe it, but their lives don’t reflect that.

It’s not enough to believe something with your intellect. Sure, it helps, but this truth – that God is able to do ANYTHING – needs to be at the very core of who you are. I can argue and persuade you all day about how God created the universe and designed the laws of physics, so what’s so hard about believing He can bend those laws he made? In the end though, that will just get you more knowledge.

Knowledge is good. Wisdom is good. But there is something that knowledge and wisdom can never get you: experience. We all need a fresh experience with God. We need Him to show us that nothing is too hard for Him. But be careful praying that if you don’t really mean it. In order for God to show you that nothing is too hard for Him, He’s going to have to push you out of your comfort zone. You’re going to have to leave the comfort of your favorite pew and venture out to the next row or two to where He is calling you.

But the world needs you!

The world needs to see someone who has made the decision to be God’s man. The world needs to see someone who has made the decision to be God’s woman. The world needs to SEE a BIG FAITH in an even BIGGER GOD.

YOU could be that person.

It doesn’t matter where you’ve been. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done. The power that rose Jesus Christ from the dead and defied the laws of nature and death lives in you the moment you accept Jesus as your Savior and believe He rose from the dead.

SHOW the world.
