I love the word ‘all’ because it leaves no wiggle room. All have sinned. That means everyone without exception. For God so loved the world and whoever (everyone without exception) believes in Him will have everlasting life.
Today I want to look at how God is All Powerful. I continually rejoice in the truth that He has ALL power. That means no one else, nor anything has any because He has it all. Psalm 2 is very clear. Verse 9 was speaking about the nations. It says, “You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
Of course there is pseudo power, but that is all it is–a facade. In Luke 4 the devil dared to lure Jesus to give up His power. The dare fell flat because the Lord’s sword hacked it to pieces.
Let us take note. It is God’s word that defeats the enemy of our soul. His word is His wielding weapon. Isaiah 59:19 says, “…when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.” It is ours as well. Psalm 149:5-9 in part says, “…a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance…and punishments…to bind…”
Remember the Rabshekeh’s words of threat? I want to remind you of what happened. 2 Kings 19:35 says, “And it came to pass on a certain night that the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five (185!) thousand…” In verse 37 two sons of the king of Assyria killed their father with the sword.
As we pray and add in the Lord attributes, our words would come straight from Scripture. I love to use Job 42:2 to remind myself that He is All Powerful. It says, “I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.”
2 Peter 1:4 says, “By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakes of the divine nature…” As we pray with His attributes in mind, we are entering into the truth of who He is at ALL times.
