God is Omnipotent
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”
Read Jeremiah 32:17-25
According to Merriam-Webster, the word omnipotent derives from the Latin prefix omni-, meaning “all,” and the word potens, meaning “potent” or “powerful.” They also define it as having virtually unlimited authority or influence. The Bible did not use the exact word omnipotent to describe God, but the word “almighty” can be found all throughout out of the Old Testament. The phrase “El Shaddai” also describes God’s all-sufficiency. It was first used in Genesis 17:1 (NLT) when God told to Abraham, “I am El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty.’ Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.”
God’s power is obvious in our daily life. The rising and setting of the sun, and the rotation and revolution of the planets around the sun are just some of the many evidences of God’s power over His creation. God’s power is beyond what we can think of. He is more powerful than the enemy. He is way more powerful than any illness and virus. He is omnipotent even over death. The Holy Spirit that dwells in us has the same power as God’s. This means God’s power is also in us. We can believe that God can use us, through His power in us, to bring healing and speak blessing to other people.
Are you now doubtful where to anchor your hope? Put your hope in God who is all sufficient, almighty, all powerful. What are you praying for? Nothing is too hard for our Lord!
Praise thou the Lord, El Shaddai!
