Is Anything Too Hard for God?
Hebrews 11:1, Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
We prayed and prayed and tested everything we were hearing about expanding to 2 teams in 2014. The plan was in place, the Lord was bringing us the right people but were we really going to be able to pull this thing off…we had no money and needed big dollars to make this happen. The Lord kept speaking to me that He had this and to trust Him.
When the bank said no, they just could not take the risk, I was really starting to 2nd guess myself, did I really hear from the Lord on this? The enemy’s voice will be a constant noise in your mind when you are walking with the Lord…he was working overtime to try and create doubt in my mind.
In one day the Lord showed His strong hand in our business. Not only did we purchase a new trailer, we also purchased a 2nd motorhome. He had provided just like He said He would. With those 2 big ticket items behind us, we knew we were doing what He wanted.
It was difficult at times, even though I knew that I knew that I knew He was guiding me along His path. Time and time again I have found our Lord is faithful, He has proven that numerous times in just the last few months…we can trust Him. Through our relationship with Him, we will find nothing is to difficult for our God.
Is Anything Too Hard for God?

“So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, ‘After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have this pleasure?’” – Genesis 18:12
God had promised Abraham and Sarah a son who would be the seed of a whole nation. Sarah was now beyond childbearing years. So when some angels from God paid Abraham and Sarah a visit to inform them that Sarah was going to have a child, she happened to be listening outside the tent and erupted with laughter. The thought seemed preposterous to her. The angels reminded her that nothing is impossible with God. “Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son” (Gen. 18:14). Sarah gave birth to Isaac as foretold.
Recently, I was considering putting on another workplace-leader summit for ministry leaders who minister to those in the workplace. I had been involved in such an event a year earlier. My friend Gunnar Olson, who is the founder of the International Christian Chamber of Commerce of Sweden, had been involved with me in putting on the first event, so I inquired whether he would be willing to participate in the second event. He wrote me an e-mail letter informing me that an international gathering of Christian workplace leaders would be taking place on the island of Cyprus in March and asked if I could postpone my event and instead participate in an event in Cyprus and invite other leaders. My initial response was laughter due to my current financial condition. In fact, I had to go to a map to see just where this place was.
The following day I received a call from a man I had met only 30 days earlier. We had not discussed this event in March. “What are you doing tomorrow? I would like you to go to the airport with me to pick up a missionary whom I want you to meet. We’d like to propose an idea to you. Can you come?”
“Sure,” I said.
The next day he picked me up and informed me that we were picking up a missionary who was flying in from Cyprus. “We are planning to take 25 workplace believers to Cyprus for an event that Gunnar Olson is involved in and would like you to come and teach your Esau-to-Joseph workshop the day before. We will cover your expenses. Would you be interested in doing this?” Again, I had to laugh as I saw the hand of God orchestrate in such a miraculous way and in such a timely manner to assure me of His involvement in the new directions in my life.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God” (Mark 10:27).
Are there things that make you laugh when you think of the miracle that would be required for it to take place? Ask God for the miracle you need today.
