Devotional – The God of All Power

Is anything too hard for the LORD? Genesis 18:14 ESV

Ah, Lord GOD… Nothing is too hard for you. Jeremiah 32:17 ESV

In the Greek language omni means “all” and potent means “power.” This is where our English word omnipotence originates. So, when we speak of God’s attribute of omnipotence we are actually saying He possess “all power.”

In Genesis 18 the LORD gives Abraham the amazing news that his aged wife Sarah will give birth a child in about a year’s time. Overhearing this Sarah was incredulous – how could a woman well beyond her childbearing years possibly have a child?
Knowing her thoughts, God asked the rhetorical question “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” Many years later the prophet Jeremiah decisively declared, “Nothing is too hard for [God].”

Do you believe this? Do you really believe God possesses all power? Do you really believe nothing is too hard for God? Even in your life?

If you truly believe this… if you have truly placed your full, unconditional trust in Him, you have no reason to fear any challenge you may face. No matter how impossible it may seem. You can rest in the full confidence of knowing that nothing is too hard for God!

Father, You are omnipotent. There is nothing too hard for You, for You possess all power. Please help me to fully rest in you, while placing no confidence in the flesh.
