God Words: Power
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen (Matthew 6:13).
God has power. Absolute power. He has mighty power and authoritative power. He can do anything, at anytime, anywhere, as He wills. That kind of power, if it belonged to someone evil, would be terrifying. Thankfully, because God is love, He always uses His power in a good and loving way. Because God is also holy, He will always demonstrate His power in a righteous and just way.
God’s loving, good, holy, righteous, just power will always be against pride, will overcome evil, and righteously judge sin. Even though the world is filled with pride, with evil, and with sin, hope still remains. God’s judgments are being restrained by His patience, long-suffering, mercies and grace. Every repentant heart can still confess their sins and find forgiveness through the saving atonement of Jesus Christ, God’s Son, upon the cross.
How grateful everyone should be who has received forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. It means that there is no power who can cancel what God’s power will do in your life! No one has the power to stop God from loving you, being kind to you, blessing you, or extending His favor toward you.
God’s will and God’s power are always in agreement. How sad it would be if God willed to bless you, care for you, provide for you, or to work all things together for the good in your life, but didn’t have the power to actually cause His will to be done.
Nothing is more powerful than-
The power of the gospel to save.
The power of the blood to cleanse.
The power of the cross to deliver.
The power of the truth to free.
The power of the Lord to transform.
The power of the Spirit to equip.
The power of the Christ to reign.
