“I am God Almighty.” Genesis 17:1
When Abraham heard these words he fell on his face and God spoke to him. God filled his heart with faith in what He would do for him. O Christian, have you bowed in deep humility before God until you felt that you were in living contact with the Almighty?
Read in the Psalms how the saints of old gloried in God and in His strength.
“The Lord protect me from danger” (Psalm 27:1)
“God remains the strength of my heart.” (Psalm 73:26).
Take time to appropriate these words and to adore God as the Almighty One, your strength.
Christ taught us that salvation is the work of God and quite impossible to humans. When the disciples asked: “Then who in the world can be saved?” His answer was:
“Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:26-27).
If we firmly believe this, we will have courage to believe that God is working in us all that is well-pleasing in His sight.
Think how Paul prays for the Ephesians, that through the enlightening of the Spirit, they might “begin to understand the incredible greatness of His power for us who believe Him.” (Ephesians 1:19). When we fully believe that the mighty power of God is working within us, we can joyfully say, ‘God is the strength of my life.”
