THEME: THE APPOINTED TIME
“Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.”
-Several references in the Bible reveal God appointed time relating to various promises that were and still are key to accomplish His purposes on earth. In Greek, the word Kairos means the appointed time or moment to act. These moments increase our faith and hope in the Lord, for nothing is impossible with God. The Lord made a promise to Abraham that He would bless him and make his descendants like the stars in the sky and the sand of the seashore. In the course of time, he got a son Ishmael through Hagar his maid servant and probably thought that this was the son of the promise. When Abraham was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and reminded him of the promise, and we see Abraham laugh and express incertitude (Genesis 17:17). Sarah also laughed later given her advanced age and the Lord said “Is there anything too hard for the LORD?” This is the question that we ask ourselves today, Is there anything too hard for the LORD? If Abraham and Sarah were able to bear a son at an old and advanced age, what is difficult for the LORD. If the Shunammite woman whose husband was old bore a son at the appointed time (2 Kings 4:14-17), nothing is impossible with God. Whatever situation that you might be faced with, be it barrenness, delay, sickness, lack of a job, slow business, financial instability, marital issues, lack of marriage partner, family issues, addictions, political instability, poor leadership, corruption, COVID-19 and related issues, slow or no economic growth, persecution of Christians etc. Despite the challenges that we might be faced with that appear like old age, God is still in control. We are called to put our trust in the Lord despite these obstacles, and the Lord will make a way for us; even where there seems to be no way.
This is the day that You have made Lord, we rejoice and are glad in it. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, nothing is too hard for You our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You created the heavens and the earth and all that is in, nothing is too hard for You Lord. You created man in Your own image and likeness, nothing is too hard for You Lord. You delivered the Israelites from the hands of Pharaoh, nothing is too hard for You Lord. You gave Abraham and Sarah a son at an old age, nothing is too hard for You Lord. You sent Your Son Jesus to save the world from sin and eternal condemnation, nothing is too hard for You Lord. Make a way in our lives, situations, families, marriages, jobs, businesses, government, churches and nation, even where there seems to be no way. You work in ways that we cannot see Lord, make a way for us and deliver all nations from the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank You Lord for protecting us, providing for us, healing our wounds, guiding us, delivering us from the snares of the evil one, sanctifying and justifying us with Your precious blood, we bless Your holy name. Your ways are perfect and Your word is pure, cement us in Your truth. You have the way of everlasting life Jesus, save us dear Master. We cast all our burdens and cares unto You, save us dear Jesus. Journey with us in all things and level the mountains for us. We believe in You and trust in You Jesus, make it happen for us at the appointed time. Amen
