Indescribable: The power of God

Job 37-5The Verse of the Day for November 10, 2015 comes from the Book of Job which speaks of the awesome power of God:

Job 37:5-6 (NLT):

God’s voice is glorious in the thunder. We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power. “He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down.

The Psalmist describes the unimaginable, powerful impact of “the voice of the Lord”:

Psalm 29:3-9 (NLT):

The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.
The God of glory thunders.
The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord splits the mighty cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon’s mountains skip like a calf;
he makes Mount Hermon leap like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord strikes
with bolts of lightning.
The voice of the Lord makes the barren wilderness quake;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists mighty oaks
and strips the forests bare.
In his Temple everyone shouts, “Glory!”

The words from the Book of Job and the Psalms remind us of the vastness of God’s power. We must remain aware of who God is and the extent to which He looks for opportunities to demonstrate His matchless power in our lives. With this awareness of who God is in mind, we acknowledge that there is “no searching of His power.” No matter how challenging and insurmountable any situation may appear to be, we should recall that nothing is too hard for God. He asks, “I am the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?” In truth, the old gospel song also reminds us,

“Got any rivers you think are uncrossable?

Got any mountains you cannot tunnel through?

God specializes in things called impossible,

And He will do what no other power (Holy Ghost power) can do.
