HEY KIDS. . . . . . . How powerful is GOD? Genesis Chapter 18
10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard [it] in the tent door, which [was] behind him.
11 Now Abraham and Sarah [were] old [and] well stricken in age; [and] it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
14 Is any thing 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. The 4½ million-pound space shuttle Columbia, would blast off with a long fiery tail. Two minutes later, it would reach an altitude of 23 miles (37.01 KM) It circled the globe at 17,000 miles per hour. Imagine the power that it took to push that huge rocket through space at that speed! Did you know “GOD” is way more powerful than that? The Bible says, “The LORD is…great in power” (Nahum 1:3). HE made the heavens and Earth. GOD spoke and it was there! HE “spoke” them into existence...HE speaks ‘substance’ -- (matter). HE is almighty. HE rules over all nations. GOD’S power has no limits. HE can make anything happen. In the book of Genesis, the Bible tells about Abraham and Sarah. GOD promised them that they would have many children, but no children were born. One day, GOD sent an angel to Abraham when he and Sarah were almost 100 years old. The angel told him that the following year - Sarah would have a son. That seemed impossible! When Sarah laughed, the angel said, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” (Genesis 18:14). Sure enough, Sarah had a son! Because GOD is all-powerful, HE could make this impossible thing happen. The next time you have a problem, remember that GOD is very powerful and wants to help you. Nahum 1:3 “The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” Sometimes, when things go wrong, we wonder why it happened. And sometimes if someone is doing something wrong, or maybe they are being ‘mean’ -- we wonder why they seem to get away with it. In Nahum 1:3, when Scripture says, “The LORD will not acquit the wicked”, it means, that those (mean) people, one day will have to stand up in front of GOD and be accountable for every ‘mean’ thing they ever did. “Accountable” means; that they are responsible for their behavior. It means that actions have consequences. ... whether or not they ‘think’ someone is watching - and “GOD” is always watching.
Ephesians 3:20 say’s; “GOD can do anything you know far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams.” Ask GOD to help you believe and trust HIM to do big things in your life - and through your life. GOD Loves you !
