OMNIPOTENCE AND MY DAILY LIFE

Perhaps you think of "omnipotence" as a theological word that relates to God, but has little to do with your daily life.  Sadly, this way of thinking tends to dominate most people.  Why are we fearful, worrisome, angry, anxious and depressed?  The more our society promotes the autonomous self, the worse our lives have become because we are actually extremely needy people who can never fully live until we recognize God is all powerful (omnipotent) and He lovingly cares for every detail of our lives.  A very limited illustration of this situation would be a one year old child worried about food, clothing, and shelter when he has a loving parent caring for all of those things.  We find this ridiculous, but even more absurd are lives lived supposedly in human strength alone.

Is it because we have an inflated view of ourselves, or because we have a small view of the omnipotent God that we live fretful and discouraged lives?  God's omnipotence should have a marked impact on our daily lives bringing peace, joy and security.  To God be the glory!

This Thursday we will be studying Chapter 4 in our books concerning God's omnipotence.  Let's encourage one another to be conscious of God's great power in our daily lives.
