"Every Single Thing" - 01/17/15 - Genesis 16-18

"One of them said, "I'm coming back about this time next year. When I arrive, your wife Sarah will have a son." Sarah was listening at the tent opening, just behind the man.            
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 man of a husband?"
God said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh saying, 'Me? Have a baby? An old woman like me?'
Is anything too hard for God?
I'll be back about this time next year and Sarah will have a baby." (18:10-14)
How often do we look at things from our eyes and think "impossible"?  How often do we forget it isn't about us - it is all about our ABBA.  His time.  His way. 
If He did everything  the way we think things "should" be, He wouldn't be God.  The one in charge.  Something we forget quite often.
If He didn't do things against all the odds, it wouldn't be as spectacular.  If everything about Him was commonplace.  mundane. ordinary. it just wouldn't be Him. 
Look at all He does outside of the box and we still continue to take Him for granted.  Still try to put ourselves in His place thinking we know better.  are better.  do better. 
When you really stop and think about it -  
Every single occurrence, no matter how big or small, is a miracle. Created by Him.  And only Him.
