Our God is Omnipotent

Our God is Omnipotent

The most powerful bomb ever detonated on earth was the Tsar Bomba in 1961. The test was carried out on October 30, 1961. According to Britannica.com, “…it was modified to yield 50 megatons…about 3,800 times the strength of the U.S. bomb dropped on Hiroshima during World War II. It exploded about 2.5 miles (4 km) above the ground, producing a mushroom cloud more than 37 miles (60 km) high.” The Hiroshima bomb alone was devastating, killing 135,000 Japanese people. It could only be imagined what a bomb of this magnitude would do to a population.

Man has become exceedingly powerful over the last 150 years. As we look at the destruction occurring around the world today, it may cause us to worry. But we must never forget that none of the weapons of mass destruction man has developed can compare to the creative power of God. While the Lord could destroy the universe in an instant, what is even more awe-inspiring is that He created the universe with all of its beauty and complexity in six days.

Destruction has always been easier than creating something new. What is more impressive: the child who kicks over the sandcastle, or the child who built it? Not only did God create our world, He created everything in it, everything sustaining it, and everything surrounding it. God, the Almighty created it all.

Our God is omnipotent. This means that He holds an infinite amount of power. There is nothing our God cannot do that is in accordance with His nature. All things exist and persist by His mighty hand.

The prophet Jeremiah said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You” (Jer. 32:17). This is an amazing statement. In physics, the Law of Conservation of Mass states that matter cannot be created or destroyed. The creation of matter is outside the laws of physics. God is far and above these laws because He wrote the laws themselves. And we know He is the author because our universe demands a creator. The universe had a beginning, so there must be a beginner.

God is that beginner. His power is beyond our imagination. He is the one who crafted the atoms that were fused in the Tsar Bomba. Without God, there is no existence. Our God is omnipotent. He is all powerful. Nothing is too hard for Him. He alone is worthy of our praise and devotion. If we have given our lives to Him, then nothing of this world should cause us to fear. Have you devoted your life to God Almighty?
