God is all around us. His power and majesty is infinite and it is one which we cannot deny. As good Christians, we must recognize the power of our Lord and ensure that we reflect our reverence for God’s amazing work in all we do on a daily basis.
This is why reflecting on some of the incredible verses from the Bible that reflect the power of God is necessary to ensure that we never take our astonishment of his work in vain.
This article will look at and analyse 19 amazing Bible verses about God’s power. By looking at these verses we can ensure that we never take his name in vain and also respect his divinity over us. Read on to see how these verses can inspire us and remind us that we should be aware of God’s true power over us all.
This passage from the book of Exodus is one of the greatest examples of how God’s glory and power can be linked to our own lives and how through him we are truly united in the power and joy of the lord.
The quotation from Exodus 15:6 goes as follow:
“Your right hand, O Lord glorious in power, your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.”
Here the good book is reminding God’s power is such that he can smite any enemy he finds with only his right hand, that he can inflight all of his heavenly power onto those who not only stray from the path of righteousness but worship the forces of evil.
Yet this passage also means something else – it is a reminder that through the Lord all of us have the power in our hands to do good and to make our lives better than they were before.
When we hold the Bible in our hands we are in direct communication with God. When we read the Bible and hear the words of God we are helping yourself have the strength to live a life that is not only fulfilled but follows the path that he has set out for us.
This passage truly is amazing because it not only represents the power of God to act in of himself but also his power to inspire us and to give us the strength to tackle those that would oppose his will and invite evil into their hearts.
God is not just the force that created us all but he is also the protector of us all. God ensures that we remain safe from being tempted into ways that not only corrupt our nature but corrupt our soul.
One amazing verse from the Bible that says just that is this version from Samuel:
““For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.”
This quotation from 2 Samuel 22:33 represents how the Lord not only sets a pathway for us but also how he protects us from that which would attack us both physically and mentally. As such we can feel truly blessed that we have the Lord’s example there for us.
The Lord also gives us comfort as well, a support that allows us to hold fast even when terrible things happen that make us question our faith.
As this verse rightly says, God is our rock. He is always there and always will be and through our belief in him we can embrace the best parts of our lives and do our best to work through the worst.
There are parts of our lives that we all find annoying – whether they are constantly having to take out the trash or whether they are simply the boredom we might experience whilst working, there are somethings that everyone finds frustrating.
Yet this verse from the Bible not only reminds us of God’s power but also that we have to accept certain things as part of our lives:
“Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”
This quotation from Romans 13:1 demonstrates that even those that we feel shouldn’t be in positions of authority are because our Lord has planned it to be so – we must respect that and understand we all have our place in the tapestry of life that has been set out by our Lord.
It means that if we didn’t get that job promotion we should not feel despondent – it happened for a reason and in the fullness of time we will realize that the Lord made it so it would happen as it did.
Some Bible quotes remind us that the power of the Lord is not just in his action but the way that he is present in all of us. One of the best Bible verses that reminds us how much the Lord’s power comes through us is Ephesians 6:10 which says:
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”
This quotation from Ephesians is important in demonstrating that by having a strong belief in the Lord we can ensure that we gain strength through our belief. The Lord’s strength is innumerable and by gaining our strength through him we can ensure that we are able to overcome any obstacles and have lives that are truly worth living.
1 Chronicles 29:11
The power of the Lord is not simply confined to Earth; the Lord’s true majesty is in the Kingdom of Heaven which exists both on this world and outside it. God’s power is of course most felt there in Heaven where, if we obey and respect his word, we will one day find him. One passage in particular from the Bible (1 Chronicles 29:11) demonstrates this clearly:
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.”
Here we are reminded that all things both divine and earthly are our Lord’s domain; that the kingdom of heaven does not just exist beyond our comprehension but that it exists here on Earth, in the hearts of those who have allowed the truth of God and Jesus into their hearts.
It is only through him, through his grace that we recognize the truth of our existence – that we are at one with the will of the Lord when we respect the power he has over Earth and Heaven and that we can draw strength from knowing the true extent and majesty of his power.
The might of the Lord’s power can be felt whether or not we openly speak in his name or not; the sheer force of the Lord’s will is so strong that he can protect us even when we do not directly invoke his name. This is most clearly shown in a verse from Exodus 14:14
“The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
This verse shows that the Lord can act for us without us having to speak his name or directly pray to him; he knows who his true followers are, and he knows how to ensure that we are kept safe from damnation. Only through our belief in the Lord can we be truly whole and at peace; this peace comes to us through knowing that even in our silence the Lord protects us.
We may feel at times as if we are remote from the Lord – that because of how much he knows and sees, we feel as if we must be insignificant; that we are not registering on his field of perception.
This of course isn’t true – the fact that the Lord can see everything means that he is constantly aware of all that we do and how we feel at all times. He is with us always, whether we realise that he is there or not.
Psalm 147:4-5 illustrates this point well:
“He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.”
What this verse means is that the Lord is able to understand both the vastness of the world and the universe but also, in his true and unlimited power, us as well.
That is the true heart of the glory and the joy of the Lord; he can both control and ensure our world is right and determine the name and shape of the heavens whilst also knowing our hearts at all times.
The Lord’s power is eternal and all encompassing, which is why when his power is felt on Earth and Heaven, it is truly astonishing. His will is felt throughout Earth and Heaven which is why, as this verse reminds us, what is bound to us in heaven can be bound to us on earth:
“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven”
What this excerpt from Mathew 16:19 means is that God’s power is such that he can allow whatever is bound to you on Earth can only be bound in heaven if you wish it so: by embracing God’s love you can be unbound for any ill feeling or any darkness that is part of this world when your journey to the next.
We must remember that God’s power is such that he can vanquish any evil that comes near us; he has the power to ensure our lives are fulfilled through him and not through baser, Earthly motivations. This is made clear in James 4:7
“Submit yourselves there for God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
In this verse, it is clear that by embracing God and keeping him close to your heart that you will not only ensure your own protection by making the Devil flee but also ensure that his power is weakened; for more people who are true of heart and convinced of Christ’s governance on Earth, the more people that will be able to cast evil aside and ensure that our Lord has true dominion and can protect all of us.
God’s power and love can be seen in all things; his divine power is without limit and can be seen in all of his creations. This is why the Lord’s words cannot be simply cast aside – they are integral to us all ensuring that we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven and be united with the Lord. This passage from Romans 1:20 sets out the reason why well
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So, they are without excuse”
What this verse means is that God’s work can be seen all around us – his hand is clearly there in everything that is living or has lived on this Earth. It is why it is important that not only do we recognize his glory in ourselves but that we see it in all that lives around us – the Lord’s power can be seen there, and it is truly magnificent.
The Lord can heal us through his divine power. If we are feeling hurt and alone, by placing ourselves in the hands of God we can ensure that we are no longer hurt nor alone; that we are with the Lord and that we are embracing his word and his truth. That is especially clear in Luke 6:19
“And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.”
Whilst this verse deals with the Lord being able to cure physical ailments, the spiritual ills that we all feel can be cured by his power. The Lord’s embrace of all of us that make a convent with him ensures that we can fulfil our lives without the hurt or pain of spiritual indecision; that we can be truly one with him and feel healed.
Romans 15: 13
Hope is a truly powerful emotion and through hoping for things we can ensure that we do not lose heart with our journey through life; even in our darkest moments the power of hope can ensure that we go on to great things and that we use our love of the Lord to do that. Romans 15:13 perfectly illustrates that
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
The hope that is mentioned in this verse is not simply our own individual hope but the hope we feel for the whole of the human race. All of humanity should feel hope when they embrace the beauty and truth of the Lord, and we can feel ourselves filled with true joy and peace by believing in him and his word.
The Lord can comfort us in our old age – no matter how long we have believed in him and no matter how much time we have on Earth, his power protects us always from the moment that we accept him into our hearts and give ourselves up for salvation. This is particularly apparent in Psalm 74:18
“Now that I am old and grey, do not abandon me, O God. Let me proclaim your power to this new generation, your mighty miracles to all who come after me.”
What this verse makes clear is that the Lord God will not abandon you no matter your age – his power is eternal, and his will is done through us. It is through us that his message can and should be passed onto future generations; that is the power of the Lord – giving us a purpose to pass on his word.
Often, we forget the sheer power of the Lord’s will; he can do anything and ensure that we are protected. He created this world through the sheer power of his will, and we must not forget that. This truly stunning series of verses from Job remind of how truly incredible our Lord is:
“God stretches the northern sky over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing. He wraps the rain in his thick clouds, and the clouds don’t burst with the weight.
He covers the face of the moon, shrouding it with his clouds. He created the horizon when he separated the waters: he set the boundary between day and night. The foundations of heaven tremble; they shudder at his rebuke.
By his power the sea grew calm. By his skill he crushed the great sea monster. His Spirit made the heavens beautiful, and his power pierced the gliding serpent.
These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?”
This extended set of verses from Job highlight the sheer amazing power of our Lord – he has been able to create the sky from his will and defeated all those who stood in his power like the great evil serpents. He has given us the light that we see everyday and the moon that we see every night.
He has given us the water that we drink every day and the land which we live and sleep on every night. His power truly is unquestionable, and this set of verses makes that clear; the Lord’s power is always and forever, and we should embrace it.
1 Corinthians 1:18
The life of Jesus is one which should inspire us all and ensure that we all lead a better life, a life which is reflected in the words and deeds of the Lord. Therefore, this passage from 1 Corinthians 1:18 is important because it illustrates the difference between those who worship the Lord’s name and those who do not:
“The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.”
This verse gives a clear illustration of the difference between those who sin against the Lord and those who follow his word and believe in him. Whilst, for those who sin, the message of Jesus and our Lord is foolish for they know not what they do and sin against our Lord, for those that have been saved by the Lord we know that it the truth and that through the power of his love we are truly blessed and saved.
1 Corinthians 4:20
The Lord’s power is not simply either constrained to texts or thoughts or conversation – it is all around us an ever present. This is particularly well defined in Corinthians 4:20
“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.”
This excerpt shows quite clearly that the Kingdom of Heaven is not simply contained within the Bible or within our thoughts – it is all around us and ever present. We can all truly feel as if we live in the Kingdom of Heaven by living through the words of the Lord and embracing them; that is how we embrace the Lord’s power.
2 Timothy 1:7
Through loving the Lord, we can improve not just our spiritual selves but also our worldly selves as this excerpt from 2 Timothy 1:7 makes plain:
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self – discipline.”
By allowing us to have the power of love and self-discipline the Lord allows us to be truly free from feelings not only of doubt but also of temptation. Through the Lord’s love and power, we can ensure that we are truly free of any feelings of doubt or of weakness in staying true to his path.
2 Peter 1:13
Through the Lord’s power we can be thankful for not just our lives but the world around us as this verse from 2 Peter 1:13 makes clear
“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one how called us to himself by means of his marvellous glory and excellence.”
Through God we have all that we need to ensure that our lives not only follow his will but that they also are fair to others. We know how powerful his word is and how we must respect what is set out in the Bible, but we must also ensure that we can bring others who do not know the virtues of a Godly life onto the path of truth and justice.
Many people find the Book of Revelation to be a work of fear, that the end of life as we know it on Earth is something to concern us. They mistake what happens in Revelation to be an end rather than a true new beginning for us all
“And they said, “We give thanks to you, Lord God, the Almighty, the one who is and who always was for now you have assumed your great power and have begun to reign.”
As this excerpt from it demonstrates, the Lord’s power is everlasting and it is clear that when he returns, we will all know the truth of his power and be raised in joy for his return to personally rule over us all.
We must know that the Book of Revelation is not to be feared for those who embrace the truth of the word of the Lord and accept him truly and fully into our lives for we will not suffer during this time. That is the true power of God.
Why It Is Important To Know About Verses That Demonstrate God’s Power
The power of the Lord is important to us all because only through understanding his power can we truly feel that we have been accepted into his church.
The lord is with us always and it is vital that we know that – that we know how his word is imbued in all of us and that majesty and power is there in everything that we do and everything that we see.
We should always ensure that we are not only aware of these facts but that we are also able to embrace them as true and permanent parts of our lives.
Once we fully realize God’s power, we can then ensure that we know how to spread his word . It is all well knowing his power but we must all ensure that everyone knows it. Only through spreading that word of God can we truly ensure salvation for all the people of this beautiful world.
