Genesis 18:10-14 – Is anything too hard for the Lord?

Genesis 18:10-14
And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.
11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
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.

-With a gentle rebuke, the Lord reminds Sarah that it is unwise to judge God by human standards.  Having a child becomes a physiological impossibility at a certain point in life, even by today’s medical standards.  Based on that, it would have been easy for any of us to reach the same conclusion as Sarah; laughing at the absurdity.  But then God asks the question that we must always remember- “Is anything too hard for the Lord?”  Even if we can’t do it, God still can; even if we don’t understand it, God does understand it.  It doesn’t matter what “it” may be in your life.  Can God?  God can!
