The Character of God

God is All Powerful
- He can help us with anything

"O Sovereign Lord! You have made the heavens and earth by Your great power. Nothing is too hard for You!" (Jeremiah 32:17).

God merely spoke the universe into being-a universe that astronomers estimate contains more than 100 billion galaxies. But all the power contained in this entire universe is but a small example of the unlimited power of God. The combined energy of all earth's storms, winds, ocean waves, and other forces of nature do not equal even a fraction of God's great power.

God's power is inherent in His nature. All power has always been His and will continue to be His for all eternity. We have no power on own; any power that we have is given to us by God and we need to give him all the glory for anything we accomplish! Without Him we are but dust!

Because God is all-powerful, He has the ability and strength to do whatever He pleases. His power is not restrained or inhibited by any of His created beings. People and nations are powerless when confronted by His might. One rather funny example to me is weather forecasters – they study the signs in the sky, they read, they project the weather, but God is God and only He controls the weather and the seasons. Just when they think they have a storm cell figured out, God often does something different and has them scrambling back to their calculations. And about nations and world leaders; when I begin to stress about the craziness and turmoil in our world today, this scripture reminds be that God is still in charge.

Our amazing God is capable of doing anything-as long as it does not violate any of His other attributes. No task is too big for Him. He never fails. And He is never tired, frustrated, or discouraged.

Yet our all-powerful Creator cares for us, and He longs to exhibit His power in our lives.

David writes, "When I look at the night sky and see the work of Your fingers-the moon and the stars You have set in place-what are mortals that You should think of us, mere humans that You should care for us?" (Psalm 8:3, 4).
Job 39:26-28
26 “Is it by your understanding that the hawk soars
    and spreads his wings toward the south?
27 Is it at your command that the eagle mounts up
    and makes his nest on high?
28 On the rock he dwells and makes his home,
    on the rocky crag and stronghold.

No matter what you might be facing, God can help you. Nothing is too hard for Him. No need is too great for Him to meet. No problem is too complicated for Him to solve. No foe is too strong for Him to conquer. No prayer is too difficult for Him to answer.
