The Undiminished Power of God

This is excerpted and paraphrased from a sermon by John Flavel, "The Righteous Man's Refuge"

The power of God is everlasting, always undiminished. It is set apart from all other beings in creation whose power waxes and wanes. "The Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not weaken or weary"(Isa 40:28). He has as much power now as ever. God's power exerted is not power depleted. Almighty power constantly delivers the people of God when things are looking desperate to men’s powers of perception. As recorded in 2 Corinthians 1:9,10 we find God’s choicest Christians of those times declaring themselves as lost and considering themselves dead men. But though they sentenced themselves to death, yet God’s power which was above all their thoughts and reasoned assumptions delivered them. As we speak, God’s omnipotent power is continually subduing all things to Himself in Christ. God’s sustaining Power guarantees that Light will all ways appear unexpectedly as men sulk around expecting circumstances to worsen. How wonderfully comprehensive is the power of God in all of its glorious operations! We can Trust and Adore His undiminished, everlasting Power.
