Title: How powerful is God?
Post by: Lori Bolinger on March 10, 2020, 09:28:33 am
The early church was a persecuted church.  It is little wonder that they needed a greater power then themselves to endure that persecution.  They submitted themselves to the gospel message which is the very power of God.  (Romans 1:16)  The gospel is the power of salvation, a power that is beyond what man is capable of without Godís intervention.  The power of God is the power to not be deceived by the lies and schemes of Satan and the world in which we live.  (Matthew 22:29; Mark 12:24)  It is the power of God that brought Jesus Christ into this world, (Luke 1:35)  for Christ Himself is the power of God. (Luke 22:69)  When we turn from the darkness of sin to the light of Christ, we are turning to the power of God. (Acts 26:18)  It is a power that was demonstrated by Jesus being raised from the dead. (Romans 1:4)  A power that is made known through His patience as He waits for us to come to Him. (Romans 9:22)
It is a power that is full of peace, joy, and hope even in the midst of great persecution. (Romans 15:13)
The power of God is a power given to those who are saved. (I Corinthians 1:18)  The power to proclaim the gospel message. (Romans 15:19)    The power to give us strength. (Romans 16:25)  Itís a power that allows us to live in His righteousness. (I Corinthians 4:20)  Godís power is the power to demolish arguments, (II Corinthians 10:4)  the power to be a servant of the Most High God.  (Ephesians 3:7)  Itís an equipping power that gives us everything we need to accomplish that which God asks of us.  (II Thessalonians 1:11; II Peter 1:3) Godís power is a power that destroys fears and strengthens us with courage and endurance. (II Timothy 1:8)  It is the power over the accuser, over satan, (Revelation 12:10) the power over plagues (Revelation 16:9) and over death.  (Revelation 20:6)   It is little wonder as we meditate on the power of God that the early believers submitted themselves to the Power of God.

Yes, God is in complete control of everything. Nothing escapes from His hand without Him knowing it.
