God’s Everlasting Power

In recent days we have seen the weakness of man once again. With the current situation, we must again face the fact that the answer to the problems of humanity is not possessed by man. There is only One that possesses the power to correct man’s problems. The Bible says in Psalm 62:11 ”that power belongeth unto God.”

There is no power that does not come from God. There is no power, whether past, present, physical, or spiritual, that does not come from God. He is the only autonomous One. He is the only self-existent One. He is the only self-sufficient One. All power belongs to Him.  He is omnipotent, all-powerful.

So the question has been asked many times over, if God has the power to stop the problems of our day, why are they still so prevalent in our time? God gives us the solution in His Word. II Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

This is something that only God has the power to do. Isaiah 26:4 says, “…for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.” This is a great comfort to those who recognize their own frailty and face countless challenges that are above their own ability and strength to overcome. However, it is also very convicting to all of us that have ever entertained the idea that we can thrive without God’s power. Jesus Christ Himself proclaimed, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Matthew 28:18  As Christians, we must realize how truly powerless we are and should strive to live in the power of God.
