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.

Conclusion

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.

  • Another outstanding Classic!.
    I’ve often meditated on the bible verse of Proverbs 4: 7 and 8, pondering on the emphasis of getting Insight after Wisdom. I think it takes Insight to understand and appreciate Wisdom-yes?.
    I will tag you the ‘Intellectual Hercules’ henceforth for the Creative prowess behind this great post. Keep up the good work Ihagh.

  • Hi Ihagh, I really appreciate this article. But…And, I REALLY want to add something because I believe strongly in the principle of prudence.
    Ecclesiastes 1:
    16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
    17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
    18 For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
    Now, the Preacher Of Ecclesiastes was a kind of…downer. When I read it, I get the feeling he is greatly depressed. I believe strongly in encouragement and to uplift. But the fact that these two words exist and point to an implication: That there is fear and there is sorrow, too in the world. Much of our sorrow is gained by mistakes we make along the way to knowledge…and wisdom doesn’t always follow: war, pollution…out of control greed that indentures us in debt; all obtained from knowledge…and misguided wisdom.
    I’d advocate, too…for morals…ethics…and paying very close attention to wisdom gained also from woe…which is a mother’s hand that smack to hand of one[s] who would…cause harm.
    Prudence.

    • thanks for your unique contribution…inasmuch as nobody is flawless, I would like to observe that king Solomon, the writer of ecclesiastes in his old age, was a wise man who was drawn away by the gods of his innumerable wives, especially during his older ages…he is a man who, as wise as he was, made too many mistakes than others who were not as endowed in terms of wisdom, women, money, name it… most of what King Solomon said won’t be applicable to alot of wise biblical characters like Joshua, Daniel, Jesus, etc…even his father David, didn’t have so much wealth, many wives, and also didn’t go to Solomon’s extent in terms of worshipping other gods that didn’t even give him one piece of wisdom…how degrading that must have been

      The lessons I can draw from king Solomons words are that if we are not careful with wisdom and insight in the midst of abundance (wisdom mixed with women, money, etc.), we will leave the correct path… it makes me understand why Jesus said it will be easier for a Carmel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of GOD…even with GOD on our side, materialism, especially excess of it, could be a problem… I think this is much of the case about king Solomon

      in my humble opinion, physical abundance and attachment can misguide us, even when we have wisdom and insight.

      • OH YES!!! I totally agree with this summation you made!
        And there is NO Humble opinion about what you said. I believe it is completely accurate. Let it stand in esteem.
        Poor king Solomon. His “Prudence” came too late, and you’ve already pointed out the reason why. I think in reading the Ecclesiastes helps accelerate the reader to get to wisdom and prudence without having to go through all those consequences you and King Solomon mention. The part of wisdom I was trying to communicate is that part that is gained through mistakes…which take a lot of time to gain the “Why” the mistake was wrong and what makes it unwise to keep doing the same thing. This is Prudence. By sharing our Wisdom and how we come to it through woe, is lending prudence to others by proxy of our own mistakes and sharing them…so other’s don’ have to go through the lesson having already gained knowledge of the lesson to wisdom by proxy of other’s shared mistakes. This is also the means we gain humility. NOT humbleness.
        Prudence…is NOT making the same mistake, and it helps us move past vice more quickly if we pay attention…helps us avoid the same mistakes faster so that we can actually enjoy the benefit of wisdom before our lives end in regret.

  • I love this post particularly and reading this blog in general. I think I’m a bit of a heretic when it comes to the relationship between religion and science. I’ve never quite understood or agreed with the either/or dichotomy that says either God or science. My mind has always responded to that with the question “why one, why not both?” which makes me a bit of a heretic in both communities. To me, understanding the science behind how the universe, planets, and life come into being makes me appreciate all the more the genius of the God behind the work.

    • great comment, exemplary and enlightening…I believe that anybody who is really human (I mean both physical and spiritual, as it should be; not just completely spiritual alone) will gain broader and more convincing appreciation of creation if they understand it from both the scientific view and spiritual (GOD’s) view as the ending part of your comment expressed….GOD empowers everything…good enough his unseen power has an explanation in the natural/physical world, which science has been discovering—called the laws of nature: forces, gravity, magnetism, etc… I recommend the type of conviction you have; it gives both natural and spiritual understanding and conviction…

      • Thanks. An example to go with the above: the Bible tells us God made us with a desire to know Him, evolution tells us there’s a need to believe in something bigger than ourselves. Though the science explains the process, there’s still a requirement for a Prime Mover to start the process. Also, and I’m not sure of the accuracy of this, but I was once told by a theology student that ancient Hebrew does not have a word for millions or billions, thus the use of terms of thousands and hosts. If this is true, it adds a significant context to the part of the Bible where it says that a thousand years for us is like a day for God and creation took 7 days.

        • I believe that GOD created all beings to strive higher (what mankind calls “evolve”) physical and especially spiritually…for those of us who believe in GOD, and believe the universe is expanding as reported by science, we understand that GOD’s unseen works and achievements are increasing; in my opinion, this is one of the reasons why we all need to aim higher also…

          what the theology student told you regarding the use of the words/figures “thousands” and “hosts” for “millions” and “billions” could be true….information from the translated Bible tells us mankind is a few thousand years old, but science/archeological findings, and ancient manuscripts from ruins of lost worlds tell us that mankind is around 10 million years old…so if one doesn’t believe what the theology student said, then how does one marry scientific and biblical knowledge…the 2 can always be married for the purpose of enlightenment, as has happened certain times before

          in my opinion, science is a tool that makes the works of GOD more expressed and understandable, especially to those who are not too spiritually inclined… I appreciate science, because for me, in many instances it helps me see GOD greater than most spiritual chats about GOD would do
