Is anything too difficult for Jehovah? At the appointed time I will return to you, at the time of life, and there will be a son to Sarah.
(Gen 18:14 LITV)

And the LORD appeared to him in the plains of Mamre, and he sat at the tent door in the heat of the day. And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men stood by him. And when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground. And he said, “My LORD, if now I have found favor in Your sight, do not pass away, I pray, from Your servant. Let a little water, I pray, be brought, and wash Your feet, and rest under the tree. And I will bring a bite of bread, and will comfort your hearts. After that You shall pass on, for this is why You have come to Your servant.” And they said, “Do so, as you have said.” And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, “Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal; knead it, and make cakes.” And Abraham ran out to the herd and brought a calf, tender and good. And he gave it to a young man. And he hurried to dress it. And he took butter and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them. And he stood by them under the tree, and they ate. And they said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?” And he said, “Behold, in the tent.” And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and lo, Sarah your wife shall have a son.” And Sarah heard at the tent door which was behind Him. Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in days, and it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, “After I have become old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?” And the LORD said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh, saying, ‘Shall I, who am old, truly bear a child?’ Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return again, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
(Gen 18:1-14 AFV)
“Is there anything too hard for Jehovah?” (Gen_18:14).
Here is God’s loving challenge to you and to me today. He wants us to think of the deepest, highest, worthiest desire and longing of our hearts, something which perhaps was our desire for ourselves or for someone dear to us, yet which has been so long unfulfilled that we have looked upon it as only a lost desire, that which might have been but now cannot be, and so have given up hope of seeing it fulfilled in this life.
That thing, if it is in line with what we know to be His expressed will (as a son to Abraham and Sarah was), God intends to do for us, even if we know that it is of such utter impossibility that we only laugh at the absurdity of anyone’s supposing it could ever now come to pass. That thing God intends to do for us, if we will let Him.
“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” Not when we believe in Him enough to go forward and do His will, and let Him do the impossible for us. Even Abraham and Sarah could have blocked God’s plan if they had continued to disbelieve.
The only thing too hard for Jehovah is deliberate, continued disbelief in His love and power, and our final rejection of His plans for us. Nothing is too hard for Jehovah to do for them that trust Him — Messages for the Morning Watch>

Abraham and Sarah, both walked by faith, and their faith has been credited to them for Righteousness. Neither looked to that which was impossible. They knew that nothing is too difficult for the God of all flesh. Jeremiah also echoed it in his records.
Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
(Jer 32:17 KJV)
Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?
(Jer 32:27 KJV).
Even our Lord tells us all things are possible to them who believe> That which seems impossible for man is possible to God! Our God can do far abundantly, above that which we ask, think, or imagine. For the just live through our faith! We need to believe God is Whom He says He Is, He is also a Rewarder of those, who believe. We have access to Him and His Presence through Christ Jesus our Lord. For no one can come to the Father except through Him, Jesus Christ.
Let us draw near to Him, even this day, through the acceptance of Christ Jesus as Lord and Master of our life. While there is still yet time, for the time is short, the night is coming when no man is able to work. Reed the signs of the times. The man of sin is soon to be revealed. His heart is not after God or anything which relates and calls to God.
It is way past time to sleep. Body and Church of Christ awake, rise up and take your place! Be not slack nor weak in well doing! The Lord of the Heavenly Hosts is sounding the trumpet! He is calling us to come up to Him! For He is ready to judge the world! He is preparing His Bride! ‘Tis time for the fulfilment of the ages. Multitudes! Multitudes! in the Valley of decision! Call upon Him in time of Trouble! He shall hear!
