Believe God to do What He Says He Will Do

Daily Devotional

Genesis 18:14 Is anything 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.

If you look back over the course of your life and see what God has brought you through, the only conclusion that you can draw is that He has done it. Given that history, you can believe that he will do what he says he will do.  

When Sarah was 89 years old, the angel of the Lord said unto Abraham that according to the time of life he would return and Sarah, his wife, would be with son. Sarah was at the tent door when the angel made the statement and could not help but laugh within herself. The angel of the Lord in highlighting that Sarah laughed then asked the question is there anything too hard for God to do?  Sarah laughed because the circumstances looked impossible; not only was she barren, she was now past the age of childbirth. In addition, her husband Abraham was 99 and past the age where he too should be able to produce the seed. As impossible as it seemed, Sarah and Abraham, having had at the time, 19 years of experience walking with the Lord should have then been convinced that there is nothing impossible with Him. So when the angel asked the question is there anything too hard for God to do, what he was communicating was that based on Sarah and Abraham’s history with God they should know by now that there is nothing too hard for God to do.

What is the seemingly impossible thing that God has spoken concerning your life? Believe him that he will do what He says He will do. If you take a close look at the history of your life from a very young age until this point, you should be able to recount vivid instances at every stage of your development where God has come through. Recall that He has taken you through school, opened doors that were shut, made ways when it seemed impossible, provided employment or resources when they were most needed. Your personal history with God should remind you He did it for you so many times in the past; with that in mind believe Him now that he will do what he says he will do.

Life Application: Build your faith by reminding yourself of all that God has done in the past and use that confidence to testify of what he will do in your current circumstances.

Prayer: Lord, I trust you. I know that there’s nothing impossible with you so help my unbelief. In Jesus name, amen.
