– Psalm 62:11-God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power, O God, belongs to you; unfailing love, O Lord is yours.
There is no power – past or present, spiritual or physical, heavenly or earthly – that does not come from God. The only autonomous, self-sufficient being is God himself. All power belongs to him, so he is omnipotent, all-powerful.
This is a great comfort to you who recognize your own frailty and face countless daily challenges that are above your own ability or strength to overcome. However, it is also convicting to every one of you that has entertained the notion that you can thrive, or even survive, without God’s strength.(News Flash, You Can’t)
Every other source of renewal, every other aid to which you might turn, will eventually fail you. But in the all-powerful God is everlasting strength (Isaiah 26:4). How wise is the one who therefore puts their “trust in the Lord forever.” How foolish is the fist that is shaken at this God, or the restless one who wanders away from Omnipotence!
It is this very attribute of God’s omnipotence which is given to us believers as inspiration to disciple and minister to the nations in the name of Christ. Jesus declares, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18) and so commands “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (19).
Rest in the everlasting strength of the one true God today. Go in the power of Jesus Christ today.
