Power of God

The Power of God The power of God is that ability and strength whereby He can bring to pass whatever He pleases, whatsoever His infinite wisdom may direct. Whatever His infinite purity of will brings to fruition. As holiness is the beauty of all God's attributes, so power is that which gives life and action to all the perfections of the divine nature. His charity would be a feeble pity without power, His promises a hollow voice, and His threats a flimsy scarecrow. God's power is limitless, eternal, and incomprehensible, and it cannot be restrained, frustrated, or checked by the creature (Stephen Charnock).

God has infinite power since all of His characteristics are endless. The power of God is that ability and strength, whereby he can bring to pass whatever he pleases. So, impose whatever his infinite wisdom and limitless purity of purpose can settle.

WE CANNOT get a proper conception of God unless we consider Him to be both all-powerful and all-knowing.

Anyone who does not have God's power cannot enter the kingdom of God. The development of God's sovereign intentions cannot be hampered by any individual or earthly force. No one can stop Him from carrying out every detail of His eternal plan.

The power of God moves forward His providence in history with unstoppable success. This divine power is available to every believer as we press on in our Christian lives. With the strength that God provides, we can accomplish anything He sets before us.

The supernatural power of the Word of God, when appropriated by faith into our lives, energizes us to do His work. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit's presence within us provides us with the strength we need to carry out His will. We are divinely equipped to be more than conquerors in Christ Jesus through this immense power, no matter what hurdles we face in life. God will provide all-sufficient power for you to follow Him in whatever He has called you to do out of His abundance.

We must trust in His power as we carry out what God has asked us to accomplish. God's strength is most completely manifested in our lives when we are at our weakest. When we look to Him for strength, He uses His power to overcome our weaknesses.

His strength flashes through everything and extends far beyond it. His nature contains an infinite amount of power that he has yet to exhibit. Though his impact may be seen in all of his works, he possesses a power that extends beyond them. It is a consolation of a believer and the splendor of his nature. His ability to act is his strength.

His will, commands, wisdom leads, and power effects are all directed by his knowledge. Reference books:

"Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You" (Jer. 32: 17).

"Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, 'Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!'

"Twice have I heard this, that power belongs unto God." The heavens are yours; the earth also is yours; the world and all that is in it, you have founded them; The north and the south, you have created them;. Before a man can work, he must have both tools and materials, but God began with nothing, and by His word alone, out of nothing, made all things. The intellect cannot grasp it. God "spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast" (Psa 33:9). 

Primeval matter heard His voice. "God said, Let there be...and it was so" (Gen 1). Well, may we exclaim, "Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand" (Psa 89:13).
