Do you know that God is omnipotent? Well He is, which means that he has ALL POWER. Jeremiah 32:27 says, "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?" (NASB)

One way God's power can be seen is that the forces of nature are at his command. The control that God has over nature can be seen at various times in both the Old and New Testaments. Once God sent a flood to destroy most of mankind. On another occasion, He prepared a great fish to swallow a man by the name of Jonah. We can also read of the power that Jesus had over nature. On one occasion, He calmed a raging sea (Mt. 8).

God's power is also seen as he created all things. Psalms 19:1 says, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork." Observing creation, should cause a person to conclude that things did not come into existence by accident but by the power of God. God had the power to speak things into existence.

On one occasion, Jesus said, "...with men it is impossible, for with God all things are possible." This emphasizes the point: GOD IS OMNIPOTENT!
