God Is Omnipotent – All Powerful

Psalm 139: 12 - 17

12 Even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. 13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. 14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; 16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. 17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

When you think of God's greatness expressed in terms of His unlimited power, things like earthquakes, volcanos, or violent weather first come to mind. Big, dynamic demonstrations of destruction or reconstruction that only God could do.

However, our psalmist goes to the opposite extreme in looking for God's power in creation. He points out that God is in control of everything, even dark and light, they are one and the same to Him. Furthermore, God wove him in his mother's womb with an intricacy only He could employ. So many forms of science discover new details in medicine, geology, fossils, and countless other venues that all point to His omnipotence. Thanks and praise are the appropriate response to God's amazing works!

The very personal side of this is for you to accept and agree that God made you just like you are and He wrote out the details of your life day by day all according to His perfect plan. As you walk humbly before Him He will give you sufficient grace for each moment of each day. Resisting Him or rejecting how He made you or ordered your life is prideful and will interrupt the flow of grace in your life -- a most undesirable outcome.

Living in the grace of the Omnipotent God is the best.
