THE ALMIGHTY GOD
Deuteronomy 10: 17 – 18, Revelation 1:8
In Hebrew language, the Almighty God means EL – SHADDAI: The Powerful God. He says in the book of Genesis 17:1 that He is the GOD ALMIGHTY. As Christians do we really understand the mightiness of God? We serve a MIGHTY GOD. He has given us the instruction to walk before Him and be blameless, we must be without sin and trust Him.
We cannot know His mightiness when we don’t have faith in Him. When we get worried and focus on our problems, we deny His majesty. Beloved, it is a great privilege to serve a MIGHTY GOD. No one can describe His mightiness, He works in a way that is beyond human imagination and understanding. He raises and pulls down (1 Samuel 2:7), He is the ALL in ALL.
In so many ways right from the point of creation, He has proven His mightiness. Therefore, we have the great privilege of constantly experiencing His mighty power. Through His mightiness, we get deliverance, healing, provision, protection guidance of the Holy Spirit amongst others. We have access to Him as the Jehovah Nissi, The Lion of Judah, The man of war, The Mighty One in battle.
In His mightiness, we also know Him as the Prince of Peace, the Comforter, full of love and compassion, the Great Judge and Ancient of days. He proved to Pharaoh that He is the “I AM THAT I AM”. The mightiness of God makes a way in a hopeless situation, He reveals deep secrets. He is the LIGHT, principalities and powers of darkness bow at His presence (Daniel 2:22). He has unlimited power and He is full of mercy.
He is full of beauty that is incomparable, thus He turns ashes to beauty, His creations show His beauty. He brings out something out of nothing. His words are MIGHTY; He is the voice of His true servants, Father of fatherless and husband to widows. In Him we gain the living water and breath of life, the giver of blessings and divine gifts. He rules over day and night, the sun and the moon obey Him.
His wisdom is so great. He is the Alpha and Omega. The water, air and wind listen and attend to His command. OH! WHAT A GREAT GOD. In the Bible, the proof of His greatness can be seen in the life of Lazarus, Moses, Abraham, David, Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego, Hannah, Mary and Joseph among others. His mightiness is everlasting; He was, He is and will forever more be.
The understanding of His mightiness is very vital in our Christian race. We need to surrender our totality to His mightiness as He instructed. By His grace, we are to walk before Him and be spotless. In trouble, He sees, He knows and He will deliver as we call on Him. We have the great privilege of being His. He has given us the weapon of His words.
Additionally, we have the great tool of His name. The blood of His Son Jesus is powerful to save and purify. His Mighty Spirit indwells us and gives us dominion over all the works of darkness. We overcome sin, trials, temptations and we live spotless in a dirty world only by His grace. In Him we live, move and have our being. He is the Father of ALL nations, the Lord over All. What a mighty God we serve!
May the Lord give us more insight into His mightiness and also assist us to tap into His greatness in all circumstances of life. AMEN!
