Mark 10:27 “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Extra Reading: Mark 10:17-31.
There are people who think that God is able to do certain things but not all things. But the Scriptures prove these types of people wrong. From the verse we have just read we find that the disciples understood Jesus’ deeper meaning. Jesus was saying that it is impossible to enter the kingdom of God by one’s own effort. No man can save himself; it is impossible. But God can save us; with Him all things are possible. Salvation is a gift of God (Ephesians 2:8). Modern people are chasing after miracles. They believe that miracles prove the power of God. Where there is no miracle there is no evidence of the power of God. God is all-powerful, that is omnipotent, and is able to do whatever He wills. His power is limited only by His character. Psalm 93:1 states, “The Lord reigns; he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed; he has put on strength as his belt…” This implies that the Lord is mightier than anything created. He is stable and can never be moved. This psalm focuses on the reign of God over the earth. Baal and other earthly gods shall never compare with our powerful God. God is King of all. He cannot be compared to any created being (Isaiah 40:25). There is no power on earth or in the universe that can wrench control of the earth from God. The living God is eternal and infinite in power; no force in the universe competes with Him. Baal, the Canaanite god was a recent “up-start” God is superior to Baal, for He is faithful to His Word. He is the gracious God who speaks to His people; He is the holy God of Scripture who is approached by His people; and He is the eternal God whom we worship.
God cannot be thwarted. That is why Job in Job 42:2 says, “I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.” Job simply says that no plan of God can be changed without His concern or permission. God’s names denote His power. We see the uniqueness of God’s power in Jeremiah 10:6 which reads, “No-one is like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is mighty in power” NIV Bible. He is the Almighty. “The Almighty” is Hebrew “El Shaddai” Genesis 28:3). He is the Lord Almighty and God Almighty. “Almighty” in Psalm 24:10 and Revelation 11:17 is usually Hebrew ‘Sabaoth”. He is the Mighty One. Psalm 50:1 states, “The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets.” God’s power is seen above all in His acts of redemption. God is powerful to save (Zephaniah 3:17). God shows His power in the exodus (Deut. 9:29). God shows His power through the work of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:24). God shows His power through the proclamation of the good news about Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16). God’s power is shown in Jesus Christ’s life (Luke 5:17). You need no convincing about God’s power. Just grab your Bible and read it every day. The Holy Spirit will reveal the power of God to you. May God bless you as you.
Prayer: Thank you, O God, that You are Almighty. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!
