Read Psalm 135.

Power or omnipotence means that God has the ability to do whatever it takes to accomplish his will. He is capable of doing all that He decides to do.

I have heard people argue about whether God could create a rock so big that He couldn’t lift it. This paradox probably seemed very clever to the person who originated it, but it also misses the point entirely.

When we talk about the power or omnipotence of God, we never talk about it as a thing that exists separate from Him. Nor do we discuss it as a thing that has a limit.

The key to any discussion about the power of God is found here:

Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and all deeps.

— Psalm 135:6

God is capable of doing anything that he pleases. Anything that is His will to do, God can do and does do.

God’s will is central to the display of His power. Sometimes we look at the miracles of the Old Testament and the work of the apostles and wonder why Goed doesn’t answer our prayers as amazingly or quickly. To that, I would say those praying knew the will of God in those situations, and when they prayed, they prayed boldly in agreement with God’s will in that person’s life.

The same is true for us today. As we grow in our relationship with God, understand His will and mission in the world and choose to agree with that, we should expect those same miracles.

Today, as you go through your prayer time, ask God what His will is in a situation instead of just working through your prayer list. Spend time thinking about it. Let Go of your desires or what you hope the outcome will be. Submit to that answer, and pray in agreement with it. Then watch what happens.
