(Exodus 14:21-30), "And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians. And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore."
A little boy was sitting on a park bench reading his bible, and as he read, he would shout " praise the Lord!" A local college professor came by and heard him, and stopped to ask him what he was so excited about. The little boy told him that he was reading from the bible about the children of Israel fleeing from Pharaoh, and the Egyptian army. The little boy went on to tell him hows God had caused the Red Sea to part, allowing the Israelites to cross.
The professor told the little boy not to believe the bible. HE told him that it was just a collection of fairy tales, and old fables told over the years. He told him that science had figured that the place where the Israelites had crossed the Red Sea was only 1 foot deep.
The little boy dropped his head, and the professor started to walk away.When the professor had gotten a few feet away, he heard the little boy say, " Praise the Lord, my God is awesome!"
The professor turned around and said " I thought I told you that the water was only 1 foot deep.
The little boy replied " well if it was only 1 foot deep, my God is even greater than I thought.
It says here that God caused the Red Sea to come back together and it destroyed the Pharaoh, and his entire army
From Genesis to Revelation we see over and over again, that nothing is impossible with God.
In Genesis 18, God told Abraham and Sarah that they were going to have a son in their old age, and Sarah laughed in her heart when she heard this, doubting the promise and power of God. And in response to Sarah's laughter, God asked Abraham in (Genesis18: 14a), "Is anything too hard for the LORD?”
In the book of Jeremiah, the Babylonian army was besieging Jerusalem, and God had already told Jeremiah that they would capture the city and take the Israelites into captivity in Babylon. But God also promised that He would eventually bring the Israelites back home. And so God told Jeremiah to buy his uncle’s field and have the deed transferred before witnesses. It was an act of faith that God would fulfill His promise and bring them home but it looked impossible. Then Jeremiah prayed: (Jeremiah 32:17), “Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee."
In the book of Luke the angel came to virgin Mary to tell her that she was going to give birth to the Son of God, the Saviour of the world. In response to what the angel said, Mary asked the question, "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?" (Luke 1:34b). And the angel said to Mary in (Luke 1:37), "For with God nothing shall be impossible."
In (Mark 10:27), Jesus said, "And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible."
Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing is too hard for the Lord. All things are possible for God.
– There is no Promise too hard for God keep. There are over thirty thousand promises in the Bible, and God will keep His Word. If God made the promise, He cannot lie. There is no promise too hard for God to keep.
– There’s no Prayer too hard for God to answer. Jesus said in (Matthew 21:22, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” When you ask in prayer and believe, you’ll receive.
– There is no Problem too hard for God to solve. God specializes in things that seem impossible. Now God may not solve your problem the way you want Him to, but there’s no problem too hard for God to solve.
– There’s no Person too hard for God to save. God can save anyone if he’ll come to Him.
There is absolutely nothing that impossible or too hard for the Lord to do. However, there are some things that we must do in order to release God's power in our lives and untie God hands that wants to bless us.
– There must be a Willing Spirit: There was a man who was sentenced to death. Some people went to the governor and pled for the man’s life. The governor wrote a pardon. The man said, “I will not accept it.” The high court adjudicated that the pardon is rendered invalid and the man must be hanged if he refuses the pardon. The truth is you have to choice to say no to the Lord if you are not willing to receive God's help.
– There must be a Welcoming Spirit: In (Revelation 3:20), Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him . . . ” He has limitless power. Jesus stands at the door knocking but He will not enter until someone decides to let Him in.
– There must be a Wise Spirit: If you have an unreasonable mindset, you can use silly, superficial reasoning and say no to God. Some people say: “I will not go to church because my mother made me go to church.” I imagine his mother made him take a bath also, so now he doesn’t take a bath anymore? Others say, “Well, there are hypocrites in the church.” Some lawyers are shysters; some doctors are quacks; and some money is counterfeit. But, if you need a lawyer or a doctor, you find one. And you’ve not yet burned all of your cash because some money is fake. And still others say, “I’d like to be a Christian, but there’s just so much to give up.” It’s like saying, “I’d like to be healed, but I don’t want to give up my cancer.” The only things God asks you to give up are things that will hurt you.
– There must be a Worshipful Spirit: If you have an unclean lifestyle, you are hindering God's power in your life and keeping Him from answering your prayers (Isaiah 59:1-2), "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Has God failed to answer prayer because He’s weak or can’t hear you?” No, He doesn’t answer prayer because your sins have separated you from Him.
– There must be a Watchful Spirit: An unbelieving heart will stop God from doing the impossible in your life because faith is the channel through which the risen Lord pours His life into you. If you refuse to believe, you refuse God entry.
There is nothing that is impossible or too hard for God, but it is possible for us to limit God. In closing, let me ask you, "are you binding the hands of God that wants to bless you?"
