Power comes from God, plain and simple. He alone is autonomous, self-sufficient. That’s what theologians call omnipotence — all powerful.
I can’t begin to tell you the comfort that is to me because I face countless challenges that are far above my ability to overcome. I have come to realize that I cannot thrive, much less survive, without God’s great strength. And, frankly, when I’ve tried other sources of renewal, they have eventually failed. But not God’s. His strength is everlasting [Isaiah 26.4]. How great is His omnipotence!
This very source of power is given to each of us to disciple the nations. “All power is given to Me,” Jesus said, “Go, therefore and make disciples, baptize them, teach them all I have commanded you” [Matthew 28.18-20].
Don’t hesitate. Rest in the mighty strength of God. GO!
God has spoken plainly, and I have heard it many times: Power belongs to God. Psalm 62.11
