I had another Panera picnic at the cemetery on Sunday before the searing heat set in. There was a lovely breeze and since it was Father’s Day there was quite a crowd coming to pay their respects to fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers.
As I sat there eating my Caesar Salad with Chicken, I opened my Bible and flipped to Genesis. A highlighted verse jumped out at me. I thought, well this is a good verse for 2020.
Is anything to hard for the Lord?Genesis 18:14 (NIV)
Now God said this to Abraham after telling him that he and Sarah would become parents even though they were both old. Sarah was in their tent and laughed. (Don’t feel bad Sarah, I would laugh too.)
The point being nothing is impossible for God.
We would do well to keep this in mind. If giving Sarah and Abraham a son in their old age was not impossible for God, then neither is dealing with:
- The Chinese Flu, Corona Virus, Covid-19 (or whatever you want to call it)
- A cop committing murder
- Murder Hornets
- Poisonous blue slugs on Texas beaches
- Election Season
- or any other thing I may have missed that’s happened so far this year.
God will find a solution to all those situations and any thing else 2020 has in store for us because nothing is too hard for the Lord.
So write this verse on your heart, write it on a piece of paper and tape it to your bathroom mirror, or wherever else where you will see it. Pray about this verse, meditate on it and then rest in the arms of the Lord knowing He’s got these situations and more in His hands.
And it WILL be well with our soul.
