We live in a world today where people are seeking power. The child on the playground seeks to control his or her playmates. Your coworker wants to dictate what you do and how you do it; the driver behind you wants to control your speed and if you are not driving as fast he would like, he would communicate his displeasure using some very colorful language.
Let’s be honest, there are some people who love to exert control. They would do all they can so that others would comply with their wishes. But God does not have to pretend He is powerful because He is. When you can make the impossible possible then you are definitely powerful. The Bible tells us that in the beginning, the earth was barren and dark. Genesis 1:3 CEV says, “God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining.” God spoke and the darkness was no more. But He didn’t stop there; “God said, “I command the water under the sky to come together in one place, so there will be dry ground.” And that’s what happened. God named the dry ground “Land,” and he named the water “Ocean.” God looked at what he had done and saw that it was good.” (verses 9-10).
So God created the world. When we create something, we use items that were already in existence to invent something new. But God is able to create with the power of His Word. When He spoke light, darkness had to leave; when He called the waters together, he created dry land. But He didn’t stop there; Jeremiah 5:22 NLT says, “Have you no respect for me? Why don’t you tremble in my presence? I, the Lord, define the ocean’s sandy shoreline as an everlasting boundary that the waters cannot cross. The waves may toss and roar, but they can never pass the boundaries I set.” God does not have to prove to anyone that He is powerful. Jeremiah 10:12 NLT says “But the Lord made the earth by his power, and he preserves it by his wisdom. With his own understanding he stretched out the heavens.” You see, all power belongs to our God.
Thought for Today: Friend, God is powerful indeed.
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
