Acknowledging God’s Mighty Power

Golden imperor's throne made from gold and red velvetScripture: Psalm 62:11

God has spoken once, twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” (NKJV)

Power belongs to God. This is confirmed throughout Scripture. No wonder the Psalmist said, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him” (Psalm 62:5, NKJV).

The psalmist learned in his life experience with God, “By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation, You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of the far-off seas” (Psalm 65:5, NKJV).

Do we as believers have the same expectation as the Psalmist in our everyday living? The answer should be a resounding “YES!”

Where can we find the power of God? Scripture tells us, “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18, NKJV).

We find the power of God in the cross, which is manifested in the person of Jesus Christ: “…to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24, NKJV).

We also read in Ephesians that our source of power is God: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20, NKJV).

From Philippians we can see that it is God who works in us: “It is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13, NKJV).

The Scripture make it clear—power belongs to God. When we acknowledge God’s mighty power, he will answer us with awesome deeds. He is able to do more than we could ask, think, or imagine according to his power that is working inside of us. Such a prospect makes for a great and exciting life!

Ask for it, and expect to happen in God’s time and way.

Today, ask yourself:

Do I have a great sense of expectation and anticipation that God is at work in my life? Do I believe God can do more than I can ask, think, or imagine?
