Isaiah 14:24, 27
The Lord of hosts has sworn: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand”. . . For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back?
God’s omnipotence means that he is able to do all that he desires to do. When he plans something…it will come to be. If he purposes something…it will happen. Nothing can prevent his plan. Omnipotence comes from two Latin words: omni—“all”, and potens—“powerful.” God’s decisions are always in line with his character and he has all the power to do whatever he decides to do.
Scripture is clear that God is strong and mighty (Ps. 24:8). Nothing is too hard for him to accomplish (Gen. 18:14; Jer. 32:17, 27; Luke 1:37). Often God is called “Almighty” describing him as the One who possesses all power and authority (2 Cor. 6:18; Rev. 1:8; et. al.). In fact, Paul says that God is “able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think…” (Eph. 3:20).
Reflect on this attribute of God. When God plans something for your life, he is not dependent on circumstances, your strength, your network, or the economy. He is not wringing his hands hoping that you are in the right place at the right time. God’s will is not reliant on what you know or who you know. God has great plans for you and he’ll get them done. Watch and enjoy seeing God at work!
Talking to God
Father, I acknowledge you alone as all-powerful. Nothing can derail your plans or thwart your purposes. Help me to trust that you—the Omnipotent One—are working all things out for my good. Help me demonstrate my trust in your omnipotence to my children. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
