January 6 – Scripture of the Day


The scripture that spoke to me today was Genesis 18:13-15 which says: 13 Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say, ‘Can an old woman like me have a baby?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” 15 Sarah was afraid, so she denied it, saying, “I didn’t laugh.” But the Lord said, “No, you did laugh.”

Isn’t this just like us?

Too often we are too small minded to believe something that appears to be impossible from our perspective. Sure, if we were about 100 years old, and to that point had never been able to have children, we might find it hard to believe that we’d have a child, just like Sarah.

But how often have we not believed something, for this reason or that, and then seen it happen?

And how often have we kicked ourselves after?

A life of faith is often difficult and challenging.  But it is exactly that… a life of faith.

Nothing is too hard for the Lord.

Let us have faith in that!
