The Power of God - 3-

Let's talk about the power of God today, His power in the world, in our lives, and any other place we might find His power.  I am sure without a doubt that we do not realize how mighty and powerful our great God is.  It is beyond our imagination to grasp just a little bit of what His power is.  So let's see what the Bible says about the power of God.

Genesis 18:14  "Is anything to hard for the Lord?  At the appointed time I will return to you according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son."  Sarah was at least 90 years old at this time and Abraham was at least 100 years old, and they considered their bodies dead as far as having a child was concerned.  But what God promises, He does and they did have a son.

Job 42:2  "I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You."

Psalm 89:8  "O Lord God of hosts, who is mighty like you, O, Lord..."

1 Corinthians 2:4,5  "And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and power of Good, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."

1 Corinthians 1:18  "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved , it is the power of God."

2 Corinthians 10:4  "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God, for pulling down strongholds."

Romans 1:20  "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and God head, so that they are without excuse."

2 Peter1:16  "For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty."

Job said, 'I know you can do everything,' and David said, 'who is mighty like you, O, Lord...'.  Also we should not put our faith in men and that includes some preachers, but in the power of God.  There are a lot of false theories blowing around out there, thats why we need to be students of the word.

The message of the cross is foolishness to some but to those who are being saved, it is the power of God.  The weapons of our warfare against evil, are not in our strength but mighty in God.

We can see God's wonderful attributes all around us, in nature, in miracles of healing, spiritual and physical and also emotionally.  We are eyewitnesses to what He has done in our own lives and those we love.  So let us trust in His mighty power to send us help in living a righteous life.  Grandma Joan
