“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
(Daniel 2:20 (NIV))
God is all powerful. His power is eternal and never waivers. It does not change. It is constant and righteous.
Last night, I, like many, experienced power outages that left us without computers, television, lights or heat. We have grown accustom to man-made things being reliable even though we know that they are not. My family and I lit candles and found flashlights. We went to bed uncertain whether we would need extra blankets to keep warm.
Is this the type of power that humanity seeks?
Even the things that we take for granted as always being there are subject to failure.
We can’t even rely on what is supposed to keep us warm, fed and entertained.
Is this your idea of power?
God’s power is endless. There is no power above Him. There is no power stronger. God’s power is the only constant in this world if we will simply embrace it as it was meant to be.
Last night was a reminder that the only power in which we can trust is the power of God.
