GOD IS POWERFUL!
“Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us” (Daniel 3:17).
God is good and powerful towards you. He gives you certain experiences repeatedly in your life to affirm how strong He is. Lives of so many saints are found in the Scripture and in every one of them, we can find how powerful God is.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego knew that God is powerful. They very well knew that the Heavenly Kingdom was more powerful than the kingdom of Babylon where they were residing, God was more powerful than Nebuchadnezzar and God was greater than the image of gold made by him.
Nebuchadnezzar was a rude and rough king who had won over many nations and so all men feared him. But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego were not afraid of him and they said, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and He will deliver us from your hand, O king” (Daniel 3:16, 17).
This made Nebuchadnezzar furious and thus the furnaces were made seven times more hot than normal. But God was powerful to defuse the wrath of the fire, dwell with his children in the furnace and save them.
There is no amazing thing which God cannot do. He is powerful to save you from all problems, however big they may be. He is powerful to heal any sickness which the doctors could not. He is powerful to extend your lifespan.
John the Baptist said, “He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry” (Mathew 3:11) about Christ. One who holds your hands is able to save to the uttermost (Hebrews 7:25). He is able to aid those who are tempted (Hebrews 2:18). He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20).
Dear children of God, taste in your life that God is mighty. David proved in his life that God is mighty. With the power of God, he helped the lamb to escape from the bear. He tore the mouth of the lion and saved the sheep. He was able to win over Goliath easily. Yes, God is powerful. He will also reveal His power in your life.
To meditate: “For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (II Timothy 1:12).
