Read Matthew 19:16-30
We can see the power of God in many areas:
I. WE SEE HIS POWER IN HIS CREATION Job 9:4-13, 19; Jeremiah 10:6, 12-13.
- He spreadeth out the heavens in Job 9:8 and Jeremiah 10:12.
- He treadeth upon the waves of the sea Job 9:8.
- He maketh the constellations Job 9:9.
II. WE SEE HIS POWER IN THE CONVERSION OF SINNERS Isaiah 26:4, Psalm 77:14-18; 106:8; Matthew 19:26.
- This will give us an encouragement to trust Proverbs 3; 5-6.
- An example of redemption Psalm 77:14-18.
- An explanation of God’s ability Matthew 19:26.
III. WE CAN SEE HIS POWER IN THE CALLING OF HIS SERVANTS.
- Servants from all walks of life 1 Samuel 2:6-8.
- Servants who are willing to follow Him Matthew 4:18-22.
IV. WE SEE HIS POWER IN CONCQUORING SATAN.
- God can be a God of wrath Exodus 15:3, 6-7, 11-12; Revelation 20:10.
- God will cast the devil in the lake of fire Revelation 20:10.
- God will condemn the devil to suffer for eternity.
We need to recognize the power of God! He was the all-powerful One in the Old and New Testaments and He is still the all-powerful One today. The problem with most Christians is that they have difficulty understanding or believing the greatness of His power. Practical lessons:
- He has power to change us from lost to saved.
- He has power to change us from ignorant to informed.
- He has power to change our stony heart to a heart filled with the Spirit.
- He has power to change us from non-caring to compassionate Christians.
- He has power to change our destiny from hell to heaven.
One would have to be foolish to reject the power of God. We need His power today
