Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional comes from “Hope for Each Day” by Billy Graham.
God is All Powerful
Revelation 19:6 New International Version (NIV)
6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:
For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
Many people question the fact of God’s omnipotence. What they are missing is the fact that God being all powerful means that He can do everything that is possible, everything that makes sense. Some examples are:
He can’t make good, evil.
He can’t make mistakes.
God did not create evil, he provides the possibility of evil. Human beings actualize that possibility.
God also gave us free-will so that we can either choose to love and obey Him, or disobey Him and cause pain and evil in the world.
