Bible Story:

Exodus 14

God is the creator of all things and all things are under His power and rule. He has total and complete authority over everything and everyone. This power is displayed when God parts the Red Sea and rescues the Israelites from the Egyptians. The sea obeyed God’s command, just as Moses obeyed God’s command. All of creation is under God’s rule and power. He is more powerful than the sea, the wind, or anything else in creation.


God Is Powerful – God Gives Strength

God is more powerful than anyone or anything else in the universe. His power is the ability to do what He desires to do. God has a purpose, will accomplish it, and His purposes always bring Him glory. Since God is the source of all power, it means that He gives us strength. We need to do the things He calls us to do. Paul says in Philippians 4:13 that he can “do all things through Christ who gives him strength.” That means that we can do anything and endure anything that God calls us to because it is God Himself who is giving us His strength to do it.
