Topic: – Is anything too hard for the Lord?

The world today is like a country of provocation ready to attract the anger and fury of the Lord. The world is full with many unrighteous and immoral activities. Man is waging war against God and nature. Man is neglecting and ignoring the fact that God created the whole universe and all that is in it. Forgetting that man has no control over his being neither has he control over nature that surrounds him.

Any problem with man and the nature around him can only be rectified by, He who created both, God. Man cannot change what God had made permanent neither can he recreate nature. Man can tap into the knowledge of what God had put in place, but cannot add to it. Any attempt by man to create or recreate causes man to destroy the existing creation; to recreate independent of God’s knowledge most of the time ended up in disaster and loss of lives. Man’s creation is not perfect and will never be perfect until man comes to the knowledge of God.

No one born of a woman naturally or by cesarean session who does not have one problem or difficulty. The form and degree of the problem varies from one person to the other. The problem may be physical, spiritual, emotional, mental or material. The reaction of individual to the problem also varies; some will be able to bear it, while some will not.

In the scripture, Sarah’s problem was barrenness; she had reached the age of menopause. Humanly and medically, she cannot bear any child (Gen. 18: 11-12). David’s problem was that of his internal and external enemies and adversaries (1Sam. 19; 2Sam. 15). In the case of our Lord Jesus, His own people and the ministers of God in the temple hated Him (Mk. 14:1-2). Individual problem is of different stroke; problems that are facing nations are not alike.

Likewise, the approach to solving the problems varies from one person to the other. Some would approach by self-effort, some would consult professionals while, others approach it in the spiritual/divine way. Whichever approach is used, there is always a limit to the capability of man to solving any problem. When it gets to that point, where solution seems to be failing or failed totally; where there seems to be no way; when death is imminent; and all hopes becomes hopeless: where do you turn?

As a Christian, you don’t need to be told that you have to turn to your advocate, Jesus Christ, who will connect you to the divine solution. The power to solving problem does not lie with man or the world of darkness, or else, the power would have been destroyed long time ago. On the other hand, man or agents of the world of darkness would have charge you an unbearable fees that would drown you into a debt, which you cannot ransom. However, the power that solves problems belongs to our creator, our potter, the creator of the universe, the Almighty God, the All in all: He solves and delivers His children liberally without prejudice.

God cares

God said to Abraham concerning his wife Sarah’s doubted reaction to the promise of the Lord that she would have a child at an old age, “Is anything too hard for the Lord” (Gen. 18:14). In another instance, God said to Jeremiah concerning the restoration of the Israelites while they were still in captivity, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jer. 32:27).

Humanly or medically speaking, your situation may be said to be hopeless like that of Sarah and Abraham without a child or that of the Israelites whose hope of returning to their land was invisible. Your situation may have become a subject of ridicule or reproach to the extent that people call you all sorts of repugnant name, like Jabez (1Chro.4:9-10) or mara (Ruth 1:20). The Lord who changed the situation of Jabez and Naomi for better still cares for you, better than the way a mother cares for her child (Is.49:15).

Cast your burden on Him

Your problem may be physical, spiritual, material, mental or emotional lacks; rejection or dejection through disappointment; down cast; or dissatisfaction concerning your situation: they do not put a full stop at achieving what you hoped for. This is the beginning of your processing to success, especially, when you cast your burden on Him (Matt. 11:28).

Believe

Our Lord Jesus said to the father of the epileptic boy (or with mute spirit) “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mk. 9:23). In year 2010, you need to believe and not doubt or tempt God. Your situation is not a killer, it kills when you permit it to be. When situation seems to be 99% no solution, or zero success, do not yield to hopelessness, turn to the only source of solution. Man without God retained in his knowledge or man with his own creation cannot deliver; most of the time, man’s effort failed. The only unfailing source of solution is the power of God through our Lord Jesus.

Call on God

God intervenes in the affairs of this world, especially, he is aware of the trouble and problem affecting His people and He acts in their behalf. To man, many things are viewed to be impossible, however the Bible confirms “For with God nothing will be impossible” (Lk. 1:37). Furthermore, the Lord said through Jeremiah, “Call on Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jer. 33:3). The Bible declared moreover, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matt. 7:7). With these promises, why did we not receive? We do not receive because we ask amiss for two reasons.

1. We are our own ‘prince of Persia’ (Dan. 10:12-15), we hindered God’s response to our request through our sin/s and our waywardness.

2. We ask for lust and selfish reason (Jas. 1:6, 4:3).

· Above all, you need to pray and give time for fasting in order to combat seen and unseen forces, which work through opposition, antagonism and confrontation. To be a victor in year 2010, the resource power that conquers satan are prayer, bodily control and the whole armor of God. (Matt. 17:21; Eph. 6:10-18).
