Our Omnipotent (All Powerful) God



Our Omnipotent (All Powerful) God

"And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, And  as the voice of many waters and as the voice of many thunderings,  Say hallelujah for The Lord our God omnipotent reigns.  Let this be glad and rejoice and get honor to Him..."  (Revelation 19:6-7).

The word omnipotent  refers to the fact that God’s power is infinite and unlimited.  The word omnipotent is defined by the biblical word, “Almighty,” which occurs 345 times in the Bible, and is never used of anyone but God. He alone is Almighty as Psalm 89:8 says, “O Lord God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you.”

By the omnipotence of God we mean that He is able to do whatever He wills; but He limits HImself by His nature, There are some things which God will not do such as deny Himself (2 Timothy. 2:13), lie (Hebrews. 6:18), or commit sin (James. 1:13). 

No power or will can ultimately hinder His purposes. No power in the universe can stop God or impede His plans. No natural catastrophes. No airplane crashes. Not fate or luck or chance. Nothing.

Nothing is too hard for God.   "Then the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: ‘I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”  (Jeremiah 32: 26-27).

Job recognized the truth of God’s omnipotence. After God asked Job a series of questions about creation Job could not answer, Job said to God: "I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be prevented from happening." Job 42:2

Some may have a view of God as a friend whom you can turn to at any time or in any situation and is there to walk through that situation with you, but that will never tell you when you are wrong or hold you accountable for your actions or words. No matter what your view of God is, it will affect how you live your life.  For instance, if you just think of God as just a good buddy, you might think that God doesn’t care so much about your sin, just what is going to make you happy, and therefore you just do what makes you feel good in the moment. This is an incorrect view.  God is concerned about your behavior because He knows that sin will hurt and even destroy you.

God has infinitely more power than all of what he has created.  God is more powerful than Satan.  We may never understand this side of heaven, why God allows Satan to cause things to happen.  We can remind ourselves of His promise: “All things work together for good to them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

One thing we do need to understand as a Christian, is that we have the power of God indwelling us in the Holy Spirit, so we do not need to fear Satan.  “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4). 


How does knowing God is omnipotent affect my life?  It means that I can trust God to keep His Word.   God said:   “What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.” (Isaiah 46:11)  God will do what He says. He has the power to keep His word.  Because He is omnipotent, He can accomplish everything He says.

God is infinitely more powerful than our circumstances because He is the author of all time!  It does not matter what others try to do to us. We serve a God that is in full control of every circumstance that anyone can place us in.  When we start to worry about the circumstances we find ourselves in that are out of our control, remember that God is omnipotent.

Not only is God powerful enough to control the circumstances people place us in, but God is able to overcome any circumstance due to the normal workings of the laws of nature that He has designed.   There is no circumstance, no attitude, and no person outside of God’s power.

That is very good news, because God has given us many great and precious promises.
So, if God says…  “Believe and Be saved”  You can believe Him. That is what He tells us in Romans 10:9  “If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”  That means that our salvation is totally dependent upon God and His word and His power.

What God starts, He always finishes. When God starts to do something, He stays with the job until it is completed.   God won’t stop halfway through His work in our lives: “Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6  You don’t have to be strong to get this power.  “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power my rest on me.” 
(2 Corinthians 12:9)

Our eternal security rests on the truth of God’s omnipotence."To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy ­ to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power, and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.”  (Jude 24-25)

Not only can you trust God to give you salvation when you believe, but  God says…”I will provide for your needs as you seek My Kingdom”  You can believe Him. “So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”  (Matthew 6:31-33).

God is Powerful and Omnipotent and He loves you.  You are important to Him.  He wants to show Himself powerful in your life if you will allow Him to work for and in you.
