Will the fire, and should ensure Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible. Our and will will and all and will all the way in a way, and be be will and will be the and if we believe in the true and living God, the God who presents himself prescribing his power, greatness and glory in his word and we know indeed that nothing is too hard for him and yet sometimes in the midst of our difficulties if our prayers are not immediately heard the wonder is God going to respond to me in these trying times. So we began a message today entitled, is anything too hard for the Lord, encouraging us to know that we can trust in our God who is shopper rules arrange no matter what our situation may be, the Lord gave a promise made a covenant with Abraham, telling him that of his seed all the nations of the earth would be blessed.

Time passed her child was not for Sarah was not able to give birth, so in their impatience. Sarah suggested that Abraham would take her hand made Hagar as a result of school was born. This was an effort to help God out. I decided since nothing had happened was no child born God made this promise. What must we do to make these arrangements. And surely God will bless this some limited anytime we get the idea.

We got to help God out that he just not able to accomplish what he might've promised what we think is best going to get into trouble so as time passed, the angel of the Lord, that we believe to be the Lord himself visited Abraham and Sarah, and said now the time is come. Sarah is going to have a child. This son of promise is going to be born. Sarah laughed as she later denied, so it might've been was a bit of the Snickers that she was trying to suppress but the Lord, knowing what was in her heart confronted her with the fact. Yes you did laugh. She laughed as though this was an absolute impossibility.

How could a woman of her age give birth to a child in Genesis chapter 18, the 14th verse Lord pose this question is anything to harm for the Lord at the time appointed. I will return under the according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son is anything too hard for the Lord. We love the truth that God is omnipotent and nothing is too hard for him. We love to sing that truth we sing hymn number 430 in our own school him we sing the greatness of our God that made the mountains rise that sprayed the flowing scenes abroad and lofty sky we sing the wisdom that ordain the sun to rule the day the moon shines full, like his command that all the stars wonderful him. Speaking of the greatness glory and power of our God and then number 157 verse three who holds all things within his hands, who owns all houses, fields and land who keeps our souls each passing hour. No man has his almighty power.

It is the Lord and he alone man has no glory of his own. We have no greatness. We can claim. So let us publish his greatness, we declare our love for this truth sometimes in daily living side of it with forget what we declare to believe we need to be reminded of the benefits of singing the screws remind ourselves, over and over again of the greatness and glory and majesty of the Lord God that we worship and we need to be reminded of it as we look at his word.

God's greatness is repeatedly declared. Psalm 126 verse three the Lord has done great things for us where we are glad they may not all say amen to that declaration. He has done great things for us. He has sustained us in difficult times is provided for us. He has given us hope and courage and faith is done great things for us. Psalm 48 verse one. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised in the city of our God in the mountain of his great is the Lord.

Psalm 115 someone 15 verse three, but our God is in the heavens.

He had done whatsoever have to leave.

So here is a clear declaration of his absolute sovereignty. God is not frustrated is not defeated is not disappointing. He rules and reigns on time.

He has done whatever he has pleased he has accomplished his purposes never look at second Chronicles chapter 16, beginning with the 23rd verse sing of the Lord, all the earth show forth from day-to-day. His salvation, declare his glory among the Kievan his marvelous works among the nation for great is the Lord and greatly to be praying. He also is to be feared. And above all God's for all the gods of the people are idols, but the Lord made the heavens, glory and honor are in his presence, strength and gladness are in his place given to the Lord all you kindreds of the people give the Lord glory and strength given to the Lord the glory due unto his name, bring forth an offering, and come before him, worship the Lord in the beauty of hope give the Lord the glory that is because main praised him honoring him acknowledging his great purposes. His amazing mercies that are showered upon us on a daily basis mimic of the New Testament. The reason the chapter 1 verse 35 this is the angel appearing to Mary and the angel answered and said to her, the Holy Ghost shall come upon the and the power of the highest shall overshadow the therefore also that holy thing, shall be born of these shall be called the son of God, for with God nothing shall be impossible. All how this confirms what we just ran in the book of Genesis. The implication when the question is asked is anything too hard for the Lord. It's obvious that it is not here the Lord in bringing this message to Mary that she's going to bring forth a son, though she is a virgin. For with God nothing shall be impossible that we look at the book of Mark chapter 10 verse 25 it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God and they were astonished how the major saying among themselves, who then can we say Jesus looking upon them saith with man. It is impossible but with God all things are truth. We need to have constantly in our minds and upon our heart with God all things are possible.

Finally, look at the book of Revelation chapter 19 verse six and I heard as it were the voice of a multitude in the loss of many waters is the voice of mighty thundering saying hallelujah for the Lord God omnipotent rang God we worship the God who has all power. Who rules range. According to his sovereign pleasure. Nothing too hard for our sovereign God no promise too hard for him to keep Titus chapter 1 verse two deposit rights in hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot live, promised before the world began. I am in hope of the salvation it is sure because God promises of the fact he is God cannot live.

They can market down. When God makes a promise it's as good as done Internet.

The question that you have to doubt if you don't have to try to squeeze around the side and say well I know that's what it said but none really applied market, God makes a promise.

It's a promise you can absolutely depend on no matter what the circumstances might be that you encounter in hope of eternal life. I tried resting my case I'm trusting in this God who is a God of grace and mercy. He promised his salvation for the world began.

It sure he cannot live in whatever the promise that you may turn to today hold the Bible is so full of rich and meaningful promises to sustain us in all of our challenges and difficulties in life. He has promised, I will never leave thee, nor forsake the victim a bully save the Lord is my regular fear what man you can claim that today he says I will not forsake you.

God cannot live. So the fact is, he will never forsake no promise too hard for him to keep no prayer too hard for him to answer that, you chapter 21 to 22nd verse and all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. You might think about some things to David sitting next to impossible. Some burdens that you're carrying some situations that you face cool how I would love to see that situation rectified. How would love to see that person conquered the grace of God that life turned around. I would love to see that person who is never made a profession of faith and gives no evidence even of being interested in salvation that God would break their hearts and bring them to repentance and faith. It seemed impossible, but also how good to know that nothing is impossible with God. We are to continue to pray and according to the lesson Jesus gave regarding the woman who came to the unjust judge and repeatedly made her request. He says this lesson is set forth that you might not find a job right.

But you don't give up. You don't become discouraged.

You continue to seek this God who is able to do for you great and mighty things, no prayer too hard for him to answer. I love that passageway since calling me and I will answer the initial the great and mighty things, which down the was not things beyond what you can imagine things beyond what you have asked for.

He's able to do great things, mighty things, but he says call quality, quality, and faith: really believing the calling of the stop was omnipotent, who has all power, who is not at all hindered that for you can have great expectation about what he is able to do no problem too hard for him to solve Ephesians chapter 3 verse 20. Now on to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, you may say well, that sounds good.

I realize your reading from the Bible and I believe the Bible but I'm I'm also realistic. I'm looking at a situation that seems hopeless. I'm I'm looking at a problem that I don't see an answer, but this says he is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. If you been born of the Holy Spirit. The spirit of God is in you, and according that power that works in us, he's able to do far beyond what you can imagine, if you look at the situation and say I give up is no need to pray anymore. I pray and pray that nothing is ever happened in you losing sight of the brightness of the God would talk to Scott who has done great things for his people and to the glory and honor of his name. No problem too hard for him to give you courage and hope to come before and continue Lord, acknowledging my weakness and I don't want to be guilty of step in and I do want to be faithful in doing what he has required design the hammer motorboat trust and obey.

What a question, but if he has commanded us to do something were to be obedient to do what he says but as we move father trusting him, obeying him surrendering to him submitting to him. His work centers. We look to him to do beyond what we are able to accomplish in our own strength. No problem too hard for God's and no work too hard for him to finish any work that he embarked upon a will finish you never has to backoff as though this task was too great obstacles of the written that I had not anticipated.

Not only is our God. He is omniscient, he knows all and so is never surprised the never some problem that springs up the he had not anticipated God determined before the foundation of the world to save the people according as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy and without blame before him in love had predestinated us according to the Council of use will praise and glory of his name was God's purpose before time began, is that I would have a people he makes cause of them.

He gave them to his son Jesus Christ and Jesus agreed to come.

The force of time and go to the cross and pay the price that was necessary for their redemption. He was born of the virgin. He lived here for those 33 years and during the years of his ministry. The Pharisees were constantly criticizing seeking to entrap him by some hard question challenging him at every turn being so bright. Sin is to say that the very miracles he performed was by the power of Beelzebub find of the day came that this hatred had reached such a peak that they arrested they took him to the cross. They nailed in their and here is Jesus that came on the mission came to execute the father's will actually die. Matthew chapter 1 the 21st verse says NASA call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins. That's why think that's why was given the name Jesus. It means safe. He should not try to not hope so.

My throat, he said he shall save his people. Jesus said I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of him that sent me, and this is the father's will and of all which you have given me I should lose nothing but raised up again at the last day of these disciples seeing their master nailed to the cross are restricted Jesus and informed them that he was going to the approximately just cookbooks, but they just could not see that this one that I love so dearly. With such a horrible death. Here is nailed to the cross, mocking it to be the price come down from the cross. Demonstrate prove yourself but state law because he'd come to ask what the prophecy of the Old Testament indicate he had come to lay down his life for the sheep. So he remained there on the cross in spite of all ridicule defeat. Finally his enemies have comforting a guy that was all over the floor is the under these words, it is finished and finished the work and part of every detail of everything that was necessary for him to accomplish everything that he should've said everything that he should've done everything that was necessary at the cross he had done it.

It is finished. Then after was in the tomb three days and three nights. He arose proving that he was glorious over difference. 40 days later ascended back to glory, receded on the right hand of the Majesty on high where he ever lives to make intercession for us.

No work too hard for him to finish. That was indeed a work that could not be accomplished by human effort. How could it be that a holy God who hates sin could reach down and love and save Richard Fallin centers only because of the death of Jesus Christ.

That justice was satisfied, but mercy could not leave us though because the price was paid that centers could never pay the work of redemption then was complete. Jesus declaring it is finished and then the work of calling to draw an individual to come to Jesus Christ by nature, man is resistant, stubborn blindness to matter fact is alienated from God dead in trespasses and insane, but the psalmist says five people shall be willing in the day of thy power, so the spirit of God moved upon one opening his eyes to secrecy and convicting him of his guilt Mexican fantasy that Jesus Christ is the only Savior that he went to the cross to redeem center senates overthrew kinship blood that guilty souls can have separation. They draw them and they are now willing he makes them willing, something that suggests that you believe that people really didn't want salvation and they're upset about a friend, let me tell you when you make your living you just say I wish I could get rid of this outlay should you dissipate to praise him. So he makes them willing in the day of his power, then when he has drawn them and brought them there still pathways to be followed days of travel here on this earth.

The use of been born of his Holy Spirit have a new nature, but the old nature still there, so there's a conflict. Even the apostle Paul's hello recommend that I am deliver me from the body of this path, times of faltering and failing, what's going to come up. Philippians chapter 1 verse six says being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work and you will perform at the day of Jesus Christ Lord is never undertaken work and then had to cut it short, the one who started this work, the one who accomplished redemption at the cross, the one who has drawn you by his power of the one who has given you life. He will perform a team will keep going with it until the day of Jesus Christ is the message. Did you hear on this broadcast her blessing to you and you like for us to continue on the air.
