“Power In The Word” ( Job 37: 5-6, ESV ) by Carley Evans

“God thunders wondrously with His voice; He does great things that we cannot comprehend. For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’ likewise to the downpour, His mighty downpour.”

God’s Word is the power behind His creative force; He speaks “wondrously with His voice” and things come into being. Snow forms, falls on the earth. Clouds roll up out of nothing and drop their rain in “His mighty downpour.” Science explains both snow and rain, but without God’s Word, His creative force, nothing would exist that exists, says Paul.

“For by Him all things are created: things in heaven and in earth, visible and invisible. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16,17; NIV)

“In putting everything under [Christ, who is the Word], God leaves nothing that in not subject to Him.” (Hebrews 2:8)

The great things that God does through the power of His voice are “things that we cannot comprehend.” Imagine Jesus as His physical body is dying on the cross. Recall what He speaks right before the end. Yes, He says, “It is accomplished.” Remember the power within the Word of God. Remember also how He turns to the thief, who begs Jesus to remember him.

“Today, you will be with Me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)

Remember the power in the Word of God.

    Last night in our “lifehouse” group, the leader asked us to contemplate an attribute of God briefly before we started praying out loud. That was the one that I chose to contemplate: The mighty power of God. It’s staggering.
