God of the Impossible

Scripture Passage: 
Genesis 18:9-14

INTRODUCTION: God is behind all life and all movement in the universe. In Him “we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28), “by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:17), and He is “upholding all things by the word of his power” (Hebrews 1:3). However, God’s special display of power is reserved for special times of need. God rarely shows Himself when He is not sought. His habit is to perform His miracles in the face of the impossible. Sometimes, the situation needs to get to the impossible before He will work in power and great glory.

  1. TOO HUMANLY POSSIBLE FOR GOD’S MIRACLE (Genesis 18:9-14)
    1. Not When Abraham Had Expected (Genesis 15:1-6)
    2. But When All Hope had Been Given Up (Genesis 17:15-19)
    3. When Abraham Had Learned to Trust in God (Romans 4:16-22)
  2. TOO MANY TO SEND VICTORY (Judges 7:1-9)
  3. TOO DRY TO GET GOD’S FIRE (1 Kings 18:21-39)
  4. TOO RELIGIOUS FOR GOD’S NEW BIRTH (Matthew 19:16-22)
  5. TOO STRONG FOR GOD’S GRACE (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

CONCLUSION: 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
