Have you ever stopped to think about God’s power? He is ALL-Powerful. ALL meaning – not a minuscule amount of power – not just some power – not just a huge amount of power – but ALL POWERFUL! If you sit for a moment and focus on that trait of God, does it give you peace or send you running to the hills? Read on to learn about this trait of God and why it should give you ultimate peace, right down to your tippy toes.
For 30 blogs, I am focusing on Getting to Know God. My launch guide for these 30 blogs is from The Navigators’ website. It is called 30 Days of Praying the Names and Attributes of God.
This is the fourth blog in the series and corresponds to Day 4 of the Navigators’ Guide which says:
“God is Omnipotent. This means God is all-powerful. He spoke all things into being and all things – every cell, every breath, every thought – are sustained by Him. There is nothing too difficult for Him to do.”
The scripture reference for today is Jeremiah 32:17, 18, 26, 27
17 “O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you! 18 You show unfailing love to thousands, but you also bring the consequences of one generation’s sin upon the next. You are the great and powerful God, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.
26 Then this message came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 27 “I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?
Herein lies a DEEP message for us regarding our all powerful God. The definition of Omnipotent is “having unlimited power; able to do anything”. Synonyms for omnipotent are: all-powerful, almighty, supreme, preeminent, most high, invincible, unconquerable.
Reading that definition and just the few synonyms I listed hits me right in my HEART! I have often put God in a box and only allowed Him to handle things that “I thought He could handle” for me. How ridiculous is that?! Truly, it is completely ridiculous. I am a daughter of the MOST HIGH, ALL POWERFUL GOD of the UNIVERSE and ALL that is IN it, how could I even THINK of Him having limits?
You want to know how I set the limits on God’s power in my heart and mind? Well, I allowed the enemy roosting space. So, the enemy has come in and set up shop and built a fortress of negative thoughts in my mind. He has told me that I am unworthy. He has told me that God does not care about me. He has told me that if I still think God cares about me that I have fallen SO short of His Grace that God has turned His back on me and will not help me no matter how much I beg.
Those lies are ridiculous. God is as loving as He is powerful and that means that He will never turn His back on me. He will always be there for me. He is capable of handling every issue I have, as long as I bring it to Him. Even though I believed those lies for a long time, God has helped me move beyond the limited place I have given Him in the past and move on to a deeper relationship with Him. That relationship requires constant monitoring of my thoughts about God. Have I demolished the fortress of lies the enemy has built in my heart? Do I truly believe that God is who He is and can do what He says He can do? Do I believe that God has ALL the power of creation at His disposal and will use all of it to rescue me? I DO and I will continue to fight against the enemy planting the lies in my heart and continue to grow deeper in my relationship with God. Knowing I have the God of Creation at my side and that He has unlimited power gives me great peace.
Do you acknowledge God’s power? Can you see the lies you have bought about yourself and about God that need to be overcome and erased? Are you willing to work with God to grow closer to Him and defeat the enemy’s strongholds in your life? I pray your answer is YES. I encourage you to spend some time thinking about God’s Omnipotence and looking deep within your soul to see if you truly KNOW and GRASP what a powerful God you have. You are INDEED a child of the Most High King and He longs to be set free in your life to do what He has the power to do. What is that? That is EVERYTHING He desires you to do to accomplish His purpose for you in this life and that, my friends, should cover you in His Peace, right down to your tippy toes.
Love and Blessings to you!
