Is There Anything Too Hard for God?

I have occasionally wondered if there were things that God found difficult. I doubted it, but you never know. These verses answered that question for me. Some of the verses were so long that I picked out only one or two to include in the article. Hopefully, everyone will look up the verses and read the entire group. Also, I forgot to save the links for two of the articles I used. I put down the sites they were on. Sorry about that.

There is no person – too hard for God to save!

Some people believe they are too bad for God to forgive them. God loves us, but I am sure that sin makes him sad. There is rejoicing in heaven every time someone asks Jesus into their heart.

1 Timothy 1:12 – 16: (15) This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am chief.

Psalms 66:3-4. (3) Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! Through the greatness of thy power shall tine enemies submit themselves unto thee. (4) All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

The Bible emphasizes God’s strength in our salvation. Man can in no way save himself. Only God can save. Paul makes this abundantly clear: (8) For by grace you are ye saved, through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9)not by works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9) These two verses help us understand the contrast between man’s total helplessness and God’s might.

There is no promise – too hard for God to fulfill!

Isaiah 7:14: Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Emmanuel.

Joshua 21:43 – 45: (43) And the Lord gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it and dwelt therein.

2 Peter 1:4: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

There is no problem – too hard for God to solve!

Genesis 41:16: And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh and answer of peace.

Daniel 2:1 – 20: (19) Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven. (20) Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his.

Numbers 11:18 – 23: (23) And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’s hand waxed short? Thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

There is no pain – too deep for God to heal!

Genesis 41:51 – 52: (51) And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: for God said he, hath made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house. (52) And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

There is no prayer – too great for God to answer!

Isaiah 38:1 – 8: (7) And this shall be a sign unto thee from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he hath spoken; (8) Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees by which degrees it was gone down.

Acts 12:1-9: (6) And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains and the keepers before the door kept the prison. (7) And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. (8) And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee and follow me. (9) And he went out and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

There is no project – too hard for God to finish!

Nehemiah 6:15 – 16: (16) And it came to pass that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.

Exodus 25:1 – 9: The building of the Tabernacle and required offerings.

1 Chronicles 28:20: Building the Temple: And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.

There is no power – too hard for God to conquer!

We should rely on God’s strength instead of our own: “The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights” (Habakkuk 3:19).

1 John 4:1-21:(11) Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. (12) No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us and his love is perfected in us. (13) Hereby know we that we dwell in him and he in us because he hath given us of his Spirit.

Hebrews 2:14: Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

1 John 3:8: He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

1 Corinthians 15:25 – 26: (25) For he must reign till he hath put all enemies under his feet. (26) The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
