GOD'S POWER

...his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead.
Ephesians 1:19-20

God's power is endless. He is omnipotent. "Is any thing too hard for the LORD?" God asked Abraham (Genesis 18:14), and the angel Gabriel said to Mary, "For with God nothing shall be impossible" (Luke 1:37). His might, His power, His strength are endless. The Bible is full of this! He made everything out of nothing; He spoke and it happened. He said, "Let there be light: and there was light" (Genesis 1:3). He sends His frosts and His snow. Read the Psalms, and you will find that they glory in the endless power of God. This sovereign will and power of God have been manifested most of all, and most clearly, in three ways: in creation, in salvation, and in providence. And I suppose there is no greater manifestation of the power of God than the one to which Paul refers in the first chapter of Ephesians: "...his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead."

This idea of omnipotence is staggering! There are many things we do not understand about the will of God. But we are not meant to understand them; we are meant to look at them with reverence and awe and worship. We are meant to realize that there would be no hope for us at all were it not for the omnipotence of God. I say with reverence, nothing less than the omnipotence of God could save a single soul. But thank God, He is omnipotent, and we are saved by the power of God in and through the Lord Jesus Christ.

The glory of God is the biblical way of describing God's greatness, His splendor, His majesty. We read of the glory of God filling the Temple (1 Kings 8:11) and of the glory of God being manifested in dimmed vision to certain people. This means they had some conception of the greatness, the splendor, the majesty, the might of His being.

A Thought to Ponder
Read the Psalms, and you will find that they glory in the endless power of God.
