“Indeed before the day was, I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand; I work, and who will reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:13, NKJV)
This “power verse” paints a picture of how Son Power is the ultimate power. No one can deliver anything out of the hand of God. He is all-powerful. All things are subject to him.
God makes it very clear that when he works, or declares that something is to be done, it will be done! He asks a redundant question, “Who will reverse it?”
Obviously, no one can reverse the work of God. When he chooses to bless, blessings will come. When he chooses to have his judgment fall on an individual or a nation, no can do anything about it.
This truth provides an incentive for us to want to be recipients of Son Power. We want God to do imperishable works in us and through us. We want him to grant us the power, capacity, and opportunity to accomplish great things for him. His plan and purpose is marching on, and we want to be part of that plan as his power flows in and through us under the control of his Holy Spirit.
Opportunity can show up at any time. Doors can be opened that were once closed. Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can trust in his plan for us.
Talk to God
Oh, God, help me to see you as the God of the possible, with power to accomplish any goal in accordance with your will. Help me to see the opportunities you present to me as I work in my assigned place in your world. Amen.
