The universality of GOD’s power
Each time I think about any scientific explanation for each wonderful act in creation, like the one that states sun rays travel over long distances to plants which use them to produce food for humans and animals, my mind instantly goes to certain Bible verses in Matthew 6:26, 28 and 30:
- “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow, nor reap, nor gather anything into barns, and yet GOD feeds them…consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin…GOD clothes the grass of the field…”.
There are too many things and activities in creation that do not sow, reap, gather, or do anything. Yes, many things in creation don’t seem to do any work; yet GOD either supplies them with energy, or sponsors their activities consistently.
Without help from GOD’s universal power, natural and spiritual activities wouldn’t/won’t occur.
In reality, what work does the sun do to generate rays or sunlight? Or, what work does the Earth do to summon enormous quantities of sunrays from 150 million kilometers away from the sun?
What power does the sun use to make enormous quantities of light rays travel at a speed of 300,000 kilometers per second, and within 8 minutes from the sun to the Earth?
What, what and what? We may keep asking till we lose count.
GOD’s power is so universal; it can be found in the smallest and mightiest deeds in creation
Have you ever considered the birds, lilies, grass, sun, and other things or activities; and also the amount of intelligence involved in their activities?
Individually, how much intelligence do you think they have? Not much, right? Why? Probably, because they don’t know anything about chemistry, geology, physics, or science.
Can the birds, lilies, grass and sun figure out how water and carbon are gathered from the atmosphere and mixed with nutrients from the soil of the earth to produce sugarcane or starch?
Regardless, no scientist has been able to figure out the force behind such activities, or other related ones. How do you think bananas and oranges would know how they grow? Of course, it’s likely they won’t be able to.
According to human knowledge, bananas and oranges have no sense when compared with humans who are widely believed to have as many as five physical senses.
Yet, bananas, oranges, and many other plants receive starch into their cells, the cells of their roots, vines and leaves; and they continue to produce more and more.
The thing is this: GOD’s universal power brought everything into being; the foundations of not only the Earth, but all the countless number of physical worlds that science has been able to see (from afar) out there—and spiritual worlds too.
GOD’s universal power also placed distances between various lands and levels of atmosphere, and also between one star or galaxy, and another; moreover, the same power grows every animal and human being from infants to adults, or anywhere in between.
The universality of GOD’s power also reaches the deepest part of the human spirit
There is within each person a mighty, resistless, and indescribable life force that can help everyone perform tasks that could even dazzle people’s imagination.
Constantly residing within us is the power of the ever-living GOD which we use every day but don’t often recognize, probably because we’ve gotten so used to using it that we believe it belongs to us.
Yes it does. On the other hand, it belongs to, and is also answerable to someone far bigger than us. And there is no limit to what we can achieve if we use the universal power in harmony with GOD’s universal spiritual laws which are outside the scope of this article.
Any wish or desire that aligns with GOD’s laws and is patiently held in faith, would attract anything from the invisible and make it manifest physically.
The universality of GOD’s power makes it possible for GOD to be contacted from anywhere in the universe—anywhere!
The universality of GOD’s power makes it possible for us to realize our dreams after we contact it directly in our hearts through what many call “prayer” or “meditation”.
It doesn’t mean that whenever a prayer or wish is granted, GOD has been influenced by prayer. GOD cannot be bribed into doing things against his will.
However, when a person desires something and prays earnestly in line with GOD’s will, they form a mental image which the universal power of GOD would begin to align with in order to manifest it physically.
It might be hard to believe that despite GOD’s busy schedule of handling the greatest works of creation out there in the universe, our affairs are not too little, insignificant and trivial for his power to be with-held from us.
Probably, we are just one out of billions of other life forms that he created and ushered into existence.
If it doesn’t take anything for GOD’s power to encompass his angels in the divine or spiritual world, it won’t take him anything to consistently encompass us with his power in this physical world.
GOD’s power is so universal and much available at each person’s disposal, as much as the sunshine, rain and wind are. Only a few people take advantage of it, while many others don’t know that the same power reinvigorates the very air we breathe.
Remember the wise words of King Solomon: “The beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight; prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her”—Proverbs 4: 7 and 8.
A lot of power is available to those who have done a good job at getting wisdom, understanding and insight.
