The Lord merely spoke, and the heavens were created. He breathed the word, and all the stars were born. Psalm 33:6 NLT
We live in a world today where just about everyone is hungry for power. Unfortunately, that desire for power resides in the very young. When young children throw a temper tantrum to have their own way, they are engaging in a power play. When the child on the playground tells you what toys you can play you can play with and who you can play with, that child is engaging in a power play. The hunger for power is not confined to adults or the owner of the company; power seekers come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
The dictionary defines power as the ability to direct the behaviors of others. Some use force, physical or otherwise, to exert control. But when you think about power, you just can’t help but think about God. God is the creator; the text today says that He just spoke and the heavens were created. Think about that for a minute. Man can get things done with words but it means that someone has to do what he directed.
So creation is the canvas that God spoke into existence. He didn’t have to hire an architect or a construction company to create the earth and everything in it. David was in awe when he reflected on the work of creation. In Psalm 8:3 TPT, he said, “Look at the splendor of your skies, your creative genius glowing in the heavens. When I gaze at your moon and your stars, mounted like jewels in their settings, I know you are the fascinating artist who fashioned it all!” It’s easy to understand what he was saying. When you look at the beauty of the leaves during fall, it generates that same feeling of awe. Leaves that were green are now orange and yellow and red and brown; they are truly a beautiful sight to behold.
In Matthew chapter 6, Jesus compared the lilies of the field to Solomon. He said, “ yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.” Verse 29. Solomon was the wealthiest man of his time. He had the ability choose the best of the best to adorn himself but he couldn’t compete with the creation of a powerful God. This powerful God who placed such beauty into a lily that is here today and gone tomorrow. So it’s easy to understand why David said, “God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you;” Psalm 62:11. Yes, He is powerful; He is the Omnipotent God.
Thought for Today: Friend, our God has power over creation.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
