When the Bible speaks of God, it speaks of Him as being all-powerful or omnipotent. I’ll explain, the word omnipotent comes from two Latin words, omnis, meaning all, and poetntia or potens which means power. Hence the God of the Bible is the God of all power. There are two sides to God’s omnipotence. First, He has the freedom to do all that is consistent with His nature. Second, He is able to carry out all that needs to be done. The omnipotence of God is illustrated in creation. By the His will God brought about the entire universe. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1:1)
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns (Revelation 19:6).
~ He appeared to Abraham as the Almighty God.
I am Almighty God; walk before me and be blameless (Genesis 17:1).
~ Nothing is too difficult for Him.
God said that nothing was too difficult for Him to do. Anything that can be done, God can do.
Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me? (Jeremiah 32:27).
~ The psalmist testified of His power.
Come and see the works of God; he is awesome in his doing toward the sons of men. He turned the sea into dry land; they went through the river on foot . . . he rules by his power forever; his eyes observe the nations; do not let the rebellious exalt themselves (Psalm 66:5-7).
When we speak of God being omnipotent or all-powerful we must understand exactly what that means. It means that God is able to do anything that is consistent with His holy character. He is not able to lie, do anything sinful, or do anything that is logically impossible. This does not limit His power. He can do everything that is holy and wise.
