The Power of God

The power of God is unlimited and, in its vastness, unknowable in all its forms, yet this amazing and vast power gives us hope and should give us the confidence to go forward in life without fear.  Think about the infinite power of God – He is the One who rolls back the clouds and brings forth sunshine after a storm.  He orders the winds to blow and creates the seasons in order to bring forth food on the earth and provide for all the creatures on it.  We can rely on the fact that night follows day and winter is followed by spring because God’s power makes it so.

In fact, God is unique in all the universe in His power.  He is has attributes that no one and nothing else has that demonstrate the infinite variety and omniscience of His power:

  •  No other creature is capable of creation from nothing.  God alone created the universe itself and all the creatures in it.  He created night and day, the planets and stars and everything on the earth that sustains life.  He willed the very universe into existence and existed before it came into being.
  • No other creature is self-sustaining like God is.  Plants require water and light, animals and people require food.  God requires nothing – He simply Is, with nothing else required.
  • No other creature can forgive like God can forgive.  While we can forgive others for harm they may have done to us, no one has the ability to forgive us all of our transgressions and grant absolution – giving us hope of eternal life.
  • No other creature is Infinite.  He was here at the beginning of time, and is outside of time.  In fact, God and His son, Jesus Christ, are the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega of the universe.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through Him all things were made.  In Him was life, and that life was the light of men.”

– John 1:1-4

So who or what should we put our faith in?  The power of kingdoms and men will fade away, but God is eternal.  He is like nothing and no one else and can be relied on for all your needs.  Do you fully realize and understand the power of His presence in your life?  Many believers speak of the acts of god, but have you ever considered the amazing power of His presence in your own life, the personal power that you have by giving your life over to Him?

 

If God is for us, who can be against us?”

– Roman 8:31

 

The next time you are fearful or do not know where to turn, remember that the most powerful force on earth and in heaven is God.  He doesn’t have to do anything but be there, and you have all you need to overcome anything.

For nothing will be impossible with God.”

– Luke 1:37
