Genesis 18 gives us a question we should ask ourselves regularly. The angels appear and Abraham prepares a meal for them. During their discussion the Angel of the Lord informs Abraham that God is about to fulfill his promise to them of a child. The Message records Sarah’s response to this: “Abraham and Sarah were old by this time, very old. Sarah was far past the age for having babies. Sarah laughed within herself, “an old woman like me? Get pregnant? With this old husband of mine?”

The angel’s response was in the form of a question. This is the question we need to ask ourselves. He asked, “is anything too hard for God?”

Is there? Is there? Of course not! As we continue to read, we learn that this old woman, 90 years old! And this old man 100 years old had relations, and she conceived and had a son. Just as God said!
