MATTHEW 6:13_and the power…
God is the power! Power is authority. The weaker submit to the stronger.
God has great power in His voice. Genesis chapter 1 states “and God said” ten times. Each time involved creation. With the exception of humans, all creation came forth from the power of God’s voice.
Psalm 29 (KJV) gives the best description of the power in God’s voice, “3The voice of the LORD is upon the waters… 4The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is full of majesty. 5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars… 7The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of fire. 8The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness… 9The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth the forests…”
That’s some kind of power!
God spoke His control over creation, giving the sun power to control day, and the moon power to control night and the ebb and flow of the ocean’s tide. If you are not impressed by God’s power in creation, just try to rope a tornado, or hurricane, or tsunami. Try to stop an earthquake.
This is the God of the Bible, of Creation, and of Power!
Powerful God, I praise Your incredible power. I know You can speak Your power into my life. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ can speak power—I want His power in my life!
