I’m always a bit confused when I hear someone say something like, "I believe in God, but I don’t believe in the miracles of the Bible, and I don’t think He could have created the world. It just happened." It makes my head spin.
If that’s what you believe, then what kind of a god is it that you believe in? Is it a god that has limitations on its power, or is its power limited to the laws of nature? That’s a pretty small god.
By definition, God is "supernatural." That means He is not limited by nature. He’s above and beyond nature. In fact, He created nature itself and all the so-called immutable laws of the universe.
I thought that Pastor Mark Jeske hit it right on the head in his Grace Moments of Friday, June 13, 2008.
God Is Omnipotent
tell me, how strong are you? How much can you lift? Can you bench press
250 lbs.? Could you lift a mountain? How much of your world can you
control? Can you change the weather? Well, of course you can’t. But your
God is omnipotent—there is no limit to his power. When God came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ, his disciples watched in awe as he showed total mastery over all creation. Once, when he silenced a violent storm that had threatened to swamp their boat, the disciples were amazed: "Who is this, that even the wind and the waves obey him?" And so, wherever you go today, rejoice that your Savior, Jesus Christ, has absolutely no limits on his power.
