It is important for us to understand the power of God Almighty. Without the knowledge of His power our faith grows dim. Without the knowledge of His power our praise grows silent. We can but whisper faintly.

I love what Jehoshaphat said in 2 Chronicles 20:6 …“O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You.

I love Ezra 8:22  “The hand of our God is [c]favorably disposed to all those who seek Him, but His power and His anger are against all those who forsake Him.”

And Job said, 12:13 “With Him are wisdom and might;
To Him belong counsel and understanding.

Job 27:10 “Will he take delight in the Almighty?

Will he call on God at all times?
11 “I will instruct you in the [a]power of God;
What is with the Almighty I will not conceal.
12 “Behold, all of you have seen it;
Why then do you [b]act foolishly.

Daniel said:

19 Then the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven; 20 Daniel said,

“Let the name of God be blessed forever and ever,
For wisdom and power belong to Him.
21 “It is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and [a]establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to wise men
And knowledge to [b]men of understanding.

Jesus said:  69 But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.”

Jesus has power:  38 [a]You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, [b]and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.

The Gospel has power: 18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who [b]are perishing, but to us who [c]are being saved it is the power of God.

The Holy Spirit has power: Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Kingdom of God has power: 20 For the kingdom of God does not consist in [b]words but in power.

Faith has power: so that your faith would not [b]rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

This power is in us: But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves.

For God has not given us a spirit of [a]timidity, but of power and love and [b]discipline.

His power protects us: who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

By power we praise God for all things: 11 Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they [a]existed, and were created.”
