Do you think there are some things in life too hard for God? Most of us would answer "no", but do we really believe it?
I think of Sarah who was 90 years old that was barren all her life and never had any children. God told her she would have a child and she laughed. I can understand that, but she had the child. God means just what he says.
Think about what God had to do in her body for her to have this child. This always encourages me when something looks impossible in my own life. I think if he did that for Sarah, and he's no respecter of persons, then he will do for me what looks impossible.
Think about Abraham, Sarah's husband. He was dead in his body to ever be able to father a child. But God told him he would be a father of many nations through the son Sarah would bare to him. He believed it even though he was too old to father children. God had to do a work in his body for this to happen. God did, and Sarah bare a son and they called him Isaac. The name Isaac means laughter. Remember Sarah laughed when she was told she would have a child?
After Sarah died, Abraham married another woman named Katurah and had more children. God did a good job on Abraham for him to have 5 more children with a younger woman. Genesis 25:1-9. She had to be of child bearing age to have 5 children, didn't she? The Bible doesn't say God had to do anything for her like he did to Sarah for her to bare children.
So here we find an old man over a hundred years old marrying a much younger woman and having a family. He's called the father of faith. I believe it, don't you?
No Doctor could have done this for Sarah and Abraham, but God did. Nothing is impossible or too hard for God. Whatever is wrong with you it's not too hard for God to fix. Even if you were born deformed or some part missing, God can fix that to. Believe him for what you need, no matter how hard it looks to you. Just remember God does the impossible that man cannot do, and there are no hopeless cases with God. He heals all diseases. Psalms 103:3.
