Here’s an intriguing detail I came across this morning in Genesis 18:14.
God had sent three angels to tell Abraham that, at long last, Sarah would bear him a son within a year. Sarah was listening at the tent door and laughed at the news. She couldn’t believe that she would have such “pleasure,” since both she and Abraham were past 90. In v.14, God (apparently through the angel) answered her,
“Is there anything too difficult for the LORD?” (NASB; NIV, “too hard”).
But another translation, and perhaps a more literal one, is
“Is there anything too wonderful for Yahweh?”
That translation makes my heart smile. It brings to mind a flood of marvelous blessings the Lord has poured out over the years. Truly, is there anything too wonderful for our God?
