The Attributes of God: All-Powerful

Jeremiah 10:12–13 (ESV)
12 It is he who made the earth by his power, who established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding stretched out the heavens.
13 When he utters his voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, and he makes the mist rise from the ends of the earth. He makes lightning for the rain, and he brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

God is all-powerful, or omnipotent. There is nothing that he cannot do. He is the One who created and sustains all things. As we read in Genesis 18:14, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” The answer is “No!”

God’s power is displayed in many ways throughout the Bible. We see it in the account of creation where God makes all things from nothing just by speaking them into existence. We see it as he parts the waters for the Hebrew people to escape from the Egyptians. We see it when he opens the womb of the barren woman and gives her a child. And we see it on display in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the God whom we worship and serve. He stands with us as we live our lives in his will and to accomplish his desires. We may sometimes feel ill-equipped for the tasks we have been given, but we must ask ourselves, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?”
