Think Of The Homeless

There are over 30 million Americans who live on the streets of our nation. Can you consider giving something to a shelter near you? Your fellow human beings need socks because they walk everywhere. Food and shelter are great too, if they will take them. So please give.

The Power Of God and Love

Through the Scriptures, the power of God and dynamic energy as the Maker of heaven and earth are repeatedly highlighted. We see evidence of the Almighty power in all physical creation, in the immense and countless stellar bodies as well as all earthly things. The Bible record pulsates with His express of power and His mighty acts toward mankind. Though at times He has kept quiet exercising self-control, whenever His due time came to act He has taken vigorous action with His full might. In every case, His varied expressions of power have been in harmony with righteousness. (Ps. 98:1-2, Isaiah. 5-16)

The fact of the existence of The power of God is proved by the order, power and complexity of creation, and through His dealings with His people throughout history. The true God is infinite and beyond the mind of man fully to fathom. A creature could never hope to become equal to its Creator or understand all the workings of His mind. Rom 11:34 says (For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?”)

The visible heavens and earth give clear proof of a superior Source of power that produced all these forces in an interrelated, coordinated arrangement, one giving undeniable evidence of intelligent purpose. To that Source the acclamation goes: “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Rev 4:11)

The power of God and knowledge extend everywhere, reaching every part of the universe. Amos 9:3 says ( Though they dig into hell, From there My hand shall take them; Though they climb up to heaven, From there I will bring them down; ) God is spirit, not flesh, though He sometimes likens His attributes of sight, power, and so forth, to human faculties. Thus, He speaks figuratively of His “arm” His “eyes” and “ears” and points out that, being the Creator of human eyes and ears, He certainly can see and hear. Ps 94:9 says ( He who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see? )

The power of God is not governed by or limited to celestial or earthly cycles. Nor are His expressions of power capricious, erratic or inconsistent. In each case they reveal something about His personality, His standards, and His purpose. His power is used for destruction sometimes as well and He does not have regrets because He has nothing to be ashamed of. As in Sodom and Gomorrah, the destruction of the city and it’s inhabitants was necessary.

Gods power and might are always used in strict accord with justice and righteousness, never in an uncontrolled, wanton, erratic or irresponsible manner. (Job 34:10-12) Hence, there is no just cause for man to contend or find fault with Him. (Job 40:2-5) Those practicing righteousness can confidently approach Him, and enjoy a personal relationship with Him. (Job 13:3; 29:4-5) He loves and delights in His creation but is not dependant on us. We, are dependant on Him for all of our needs which he freely and lovingly supplies. We already know that He is the giver of the perfect gift, He knows our needs before we even ask it of Him. James 1:17 says “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”
