The Power of God

We cannot have a right conception of God unless we think of Him as all-powerful, as well as allwise. He who cannot do what he will and perform all his pleasure cannot be God. As God hath a will to resolve what He deems good, so has He power to execute His will.

“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this, that power belongeth unto God” (Ps. 62:11). “God hath spoken once”: nothing more is necessary! Heaven and earth shall pass away, but His word abideth forever. God hath spoken once: how befitting His Divine majesty! We poor mortals may speak often and yet fail to be heard. He speaks but once and the thunder of His power is heard on a thousand hills. “The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave His voice; hailstones and coals of fire. Yea, He sent out His arrows, and scattered them; and He shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. Then the channels of waters were seen and the foundations of the world were discovered at Thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of Thy nostrils” (Ps. 18:13-15).

  1. Hi BW!
    Once again we are on the same wavelength in our posting! (I was reading quotes by A.W. Pink today and posting on God’s Sovereignty.) I love Psalm 62:11 and what you quoted, “God does not have to speak twice. He speaks but once and the thunder of His power is heard on a thousand hills.” His power, His faithfulness to His Word, How great He is!

    Funny how often we do that!

    That verse is so interesting. Reminds me of how often I need to speak more than once when giving instructions to my children. 🙁 Yet the Lord speaks and it is done. Everything and everyone listens to the Lord speaking.
