The sun rises God is busy painting the sky, the brushstrokes of the orange and red feathering lightly across the sky. Creation declares His Glory. Even if we did not declare God’s goodness, the rocks will cry out. God is all-powerful, all-knowing, and always present.
“Since He has at His command all the power in the universe, the Lord God omnipotent can do anything as easily as anything else. All His acts are done without effort. He expends no energy that must be replenished. His self-sufficiency makes it unnecessary for Him to look outside of Himself for a renewal of strength. All the power required to do all that He wills to do lies in undiminished fullness in His own infinite being.”– Tozer, A.W., The Knowledge of the Holy. (New York: Harper and Row), p. 73
We serve a powerful God.
God is omnipotent in creation Isaiah 44:24 says, ““This is what the LORD says– your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself.
“God is omnipotent in salvation Jude 23-24, save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. Doxology To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy”
“God is omnipotent in the resurrection John 10: 17-18, “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
God is omnipotent in understanding. Psalm 147:5, “Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.
Beloved, do you have a special friend in your life? God is our friend. God is all-knowing, all-powerful and always present. The blessings He gives us are present every single day for us to acknowledge. God has given me special people in my life and one such person is Jennifer Hahn. I met Jennifer when I was pregnant with my second son, he is thirty-eight. She and I served the Lord together, we raised our children together, we dieted together, we prayed together, we learned the Bible together. For many years we were in the same town. Did I mention, she prayed me through nursing school, she was the one who read my papers for college. We celebrated our children’s marriages by planning and being there for one another. We are not in the same town any longer but in a heart beat we are there for each other in prayer. Jennifer is an example of God’s power, He gave me what I needed in 1974 a special friend for life. Oh he has given me many other blessings and friends and one is not more important than the other but God is all-powerful and all-knowing and He gave me each person in my life when I needed them.
Who has God-given you in your life that demonstrates his omnipotence? Beloved, do you know that Our God Reigns and Our Redeemer lives? What a Friend We Have In Jesus. Our God Is An Awesome God!
Father God, You are an awesome God, You reign with all power, You spoke into the night and gave us light. God you are wisdom, power, and love. You did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power love and a sound mind. Father God thank you that you are omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. And yet you know each one of us intimately. You know the numbers of hairs on our heads and you catch our tears in a bottle. Lord just as you give us friends, thank you for Jesus. Thank you for declaring Your awesome power in every sunset and sunrise.
