Friday March 3 God is almighty, all powerful, omnipotent

And human hands can’t serve his needs—for he has no needs. He himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satisfies every need. Acts of the Apostles 17:25

I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
Perhaps one of the first ideas we need to leave behind is that God needs us to do His work. God has no need of us whatsoever. He can accomplish anything he wants without the tiniest bit of assistance. In fact, God can accomplish in the blink of an eye, more than strongest, smartest or most talented among us can accomplish in a lifetime. No, God did not create us because he needed us but rather because he chose to. We are told in scripture that we are His masterpiece, made in His very image and that He exults over His image bearers with joy and loud singing. Not only that, but this same God who can so easily accomplish anything He pleases, chooses to partner with us here on the earth, to help build His kingdom and to help answer the prayers of His children. May we never forget this awesome privilege He has granted us through Christ, our savior!

Almighty Father, You who spoke the word and called all of creation into being; God who made the mighty oceans and sprinkles dew on the fragile silk of a spider's web we bow before You in awe of Your creative genius and in thanksgiving that one such as You would choose us to bear Your very image. Remind us this day of who we are and what You have made us to be. We ask in the name of the One You sent to save and lead your wandering children back home to You, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN !

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish exceedingly, abundantly more than we might ask, think or imagine. Ephesians 3:20

So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Psalm 90:12
