“God- All Loving & Powerful”

“Love and Power” seem to be the top two characteristics of a great leader, a mighty savior. When we find our self in “dire straights” and are in need of being rescued, we need a  a savior who is loving and powerful…one without the other just doesn’t work out well for us. Think about it. If “Arnold” shows up to rescue us and he’s powerful, but doesn’t like us…better he doesn’t come. On the other hand if Don Knotts, the classic skinny kid at the beach, comes to rescue us and really likes us, still not good…. he can’t do much for us. We need a “Loving Terminator”. We need a loving and powerful savior. 

“God has raised up for us a mighty savior born of the house of his servant David… who would save us from our enemies, from the hand of all who hate us.” (Luke 1:68-72) God is all powerful and all loving. We need to keep these two truths always before us.

GOD IS ALL POWERFUL ….THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM … NOT EVEN CLOSE !

  • “Clouds hide him;/ he walks upon the vault of the heavens! “(cf. Job 22:14)
  • “Bless the Lord, my soul! Lord God, how great you are, clothed in majesty and glory, wrapped in light as in a robe! You stretch out the heavens like a tent. Above the rains you build your dwelling. You make the clouds your chariot, you walk on the wings of the wind, you make the winds your messengers and flashing fire your servants. You founded the earth on its base, to stand firm from age to age.”(Ps. 104: 1-35)
  • “I have built heaven, my upper chamber, and established my vault over the earth; I summon the waters of the sea/ and pour them out upon the surface of the earth, I the Lord by name.”(Amos 9:6) “He alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, and whom no human being has seen or can see.” (cf. 1 Tm 6:16)

The scripture goes on and on about the magnificence of God. The Book of Revelations touches on the overwhelming greatness of our Lord Jesus in his glory, …..  “his head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters…” (Rev. 1:14-5) Wow !!!

And the incredible powerful almighty God, LOVES US. He loved us so much that he gave his life for us on the cross.  “Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,  who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.” (Phil. 2: 5-8)

It’s important that we keep these two important truths always before us. If we forget even one of them, we can lose hope and become discouraged. Despite the evil in the world that seems as if it’s winning, God is not worried…truly he laughs at the feeble effort of evil. In his perfect time he will apply his wisdom and power and squash evil as an elephant squashes a bug. And in that perfect time he will also welcome home his children to heaven where every tear will be washed away and we will experience the peace and love and joy that our hearts have been longing for since we came into this world.

So, our great and powerful and loving God will have the last word, and that word is victory for the Lamb of God and his children. That is very good news and should put a smile on your face.
