God’s Power Friday, Dec 15 2017 

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.”

God’s Protection Thursday, May 29 2014 

Looks like stormy weather…forever.

God is with you. He walks with you in the cool of the morning. He knows every intimate detail of your individual situation. He cares for you.

The rain falls on the righteous and the wicked.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.

He leads me on. I am not afraid. He is there.

For all those days you feel all alone, remember that He is with you. The right hand of his righteousness shall lead you into the way everlasting. He numbers every hair on your head. He makes the sun and stars to shine for your benefit. He made the world for you. All that He has is yours. His angels stand guard over you to protect you lest you strike your foot against a stone.

Choirs of angels rejoice at just one sinner who repents. He loves you.

All creation sings that He alone is God. But most of all, He is your Father. He is faithful and true. There is no one like Him. He is Holy.

Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is God.

We can’t even fathom God’s grace and mercy. How full and rich are His mercies. They are new every morning. Nothing can separate us from His love.

Romans 8:38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
