Have you had your JOY JUICE today? ”O, taste and see that the Lord is good.”
There are several words that begin with the letter “O” that have caught my attention lately. One is “omnipresent”…referring to God. He is everywhere.
Today let’s look at the word “omnipotent”. Revelation 19:6 of the King James Version uses this very word: “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!” The Greek word translated as “Omnipotent” here means “All-ruling” or “Almighty.” When we say God is “Almighty,” we are stating our belief in His authority and rulership over all creation; the Bible is firm in declaring this fact.
The NIV version of the same verse says it like this: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!” The following verse says: “Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!”
When we have the assurance that God is reigning over our lives, we can relax and rest in His love! Nothing that comes our way has not first gone before God. And though He may not remove a tough situation from our lives, He WILL be with us through the difficult times and make us stronger for having gone through it. We may not be happy in our circumstances, but we can have the JOY of the Lord which gives us strength!
Let’s thank the Lord for His omnipotence and rest in the JOY that comes from our Almighty God.
