Is There Anything Too Hard For God?
I want to ask you a question this morning and it is a big question because it comes from a big person, it comes from almighty God. It is the title of our message this morning. The question is from God to Abraham, it is also from God to you this morning. I want you to listen to the question. It is found in Genesis chapter eighteen and verse fourteen, Genesis chapter eighteen and verse fourteen, turn to it and look at it. God had told Abraham that as an old man his powers of generation were dry and dead and withered, that he was going to have a child and Abraham and Sarah who were both past the age of bearing children began to wonder about this and question the Lord and here is what the Lord said to Abraham, Is anything too hard for the Lord? That's a good question, isn't it? Is anything too bard for the Lord?
I'm going to let Jeremiah answer that question is Jeremiah thirty two, verse seventeen, you might put it out in the margin, here's what Jeremiah said, Ah, Lord God, behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, there is nothing too hard for thee. Is there anything too hard for the Lord? There is nothing too hard for thee.
Sometimes we wonder why doesn't God do something, don't you wonder that? Why doesn't God do something? You look at all of the filth, the crime, the stench, the perversion, the rebellion, the war, the hatred, the strive, the crime, the rape, the pillage, the arson, the unbelief, the blasphemy, you say where is God? Why didn't God do something? Doesn't God know about it? Yes, God knows everything. Doesn't God care? Yes, God is love. Then why doesn't God do something? Maybe God is not able. Oh no, there's nothing too hard for the Lord.
That brings a real question then, why is God silent? Why doesn't God act? Why doesn't God move? What is God waiting on?
I want to try and answer that this morning in a two-point message. First of all, I want you to think of what I'm going to call the majesty, the majesty of God's limitless power, the majesty of God's limited, limitless power. He is the sovereign God. He can do anything that he well wishes to do. There is nothing too hard for God. I want you to think of that. For example, there is no promise that God cannot keep.
God has made in the bible some thirty thousand promises and everyone of them he will keep, everyone of them. All thirty thousand of these promises plus thirty thousand he will keep, they are yea and amen in the Lord Jesus. Why? Because God made these promises and he cannot lie. Numbers chapter twenty-three, verse nineteen. God is not a man that he should lie, neither the son of man that he should repent. Hath he said and shall he not do it or hath he spoke it and shall he not make it good. We live in a day when man's word means little whether it's a treaty between nations, a business contract or a marriage contract, sometimes it's just a s ...
