THE GOODNESS OF GOD’S POWER
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power.
God’s power, one of His primary attributes, is often on display for our good. It supports us in our troubles and strengthens our spiritual life. Near the end of his life, Moses told God’s people, “‘The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms’” (Deut. 33:27).
In His parting words to the disciples, just prior to His ascension, Jesus promised, “‘But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth’” (Acts 1:8).
Whether our outward circumstances are favorable or unfavorable, these and other divine promises about God’s power are there for us to claim.
