I hope we will consider this truth until it is burned into our soul; where we want to worship our wonderful Lord and Savior until we are consumed with the truth that God is All Powerful and Omnipotent. And this All Powerful God offers Himself to work and live in your and my hearts.
It is almost beyond our ability to imagine that by simply asking, believing and putting aside all barriers we can be linked with Omnipotence. We can be linked to an almighty Omnipotent God, and rest easy in His all powerful hands. It has been my practice to read a Psalm every morning for the last 15 or 20 years and I love it when David speaks about God being our God, our Fortress, our Refuge, our Strong Tower, our Strength and Salvation. David had so fallen in love with his God that He was his hiding place when his life seemed to be falling apart. He speaks of being in the hollow of God's hand, in the secret of His pavilion, under the shadow of His wings, under His very feathers. That is where David lived.
It is exciting to realize that we as children of a crucified and risen Savior, have the privilege of living in the presence of the Holy Spirit sent down from Heaven. There is no reason for us to go trembling step by step through life when we have an Almighty God who holds us in the palm of His hand.
This passage from Absolute Surrender touched my heart and inspired these thoughts,
"Have your ever thought that in every action of grace in your heart you have the whole omnipotence of God engaged to bless you? When I come
to a man and he bestows upon me a gift of money, I get it and go away with it. He has given me something of his; the rest he keeps for himself. But that is not the way with the power of God. God can part with nothing of His own power, and therefore I can experience the power and goodness of God only so far as I am in contact and fellowship with Himself; and when I come into contact and fellowship with Himself, I come into contact and fellowship with the whole omnipotence of God, and have the omnipotence of God to help me every day."

Suppose you are starting a business and you have a very wealthy dad. He comes to you and says: "You can have as much money as you need to make your business work." All your father has is yours to be used in assuring that you are successful. And that is the way it is with our Almighty God, Savior and Friend. Honestly I can hardly accept this it is so wonderful and awesome. To think what a poor and unfaithful son I have been and yet He promises to keep me in the same hands that rule the universe. Our generous loving Father and Savior Jesus send a part of Themselves in the Holy Spirit to keep us safe from the power of sin.
Friends, if we want to continue to grow in our walk with Jesus we can begin right here. In all our thoughts and prayers. In all our time that we spend with Jesus every day, we can learn to be kept by an Almighty God. There is nothing that our Almighty God will not do for us if we can trust Him. What does the Bible say: "Above all that we can ask or think." A godly life is one that learns to know an Omnipotent God and through the experiences of life learns to trust Him with every detail of it. It is then that we understand that for us to truly walk with Jesus, we have to be full of Jesus. This is a life that asks for the filling of the Holy Spirit and waits for that blessing to come. A life that trust Him to give us the rich blessing that is promised even if we haven't seen it yet. We cannot do the will of God unless we are filled by His Holy Spirit every signal day.
My prayer is that each of us can come to the point where we long to experience His power and learn to trust our Almighty God in every step of our lives. That is what He longs to give us!
