A Short Study of Psalm 62:11
“God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.”
The power of God is that ability and strength, by which He can bring to pass whatsoever He pleases. It is His power that gives life and action to what He has purposed from the foundation of the world.
How vain would the will of God be without power to carry it out?
Without His power His mercy would be feeble pity, His promises empty words.
Gods power is like Himself – infinite, eternal, and incomprehensible,
“None can stay His hand.”
“God hath spoken once.”
Does He need to speak more than once?
What else is necessary?
In creation it says; “He spake and it was done, he commanded and it stood fast” (Psalm 33:9).
If we want to create something we have to get tools and materials and most of the time it doesn’t come out the way we would like, BUT NOT GOD!
He made the world out of nothing, and in saving us He made something out of nothing – To God be the glory – great things He has done.
As He spoke the world into existence and now upholds it by the power of His Word, it is by the power of His Word that He saves His people.
He said; “my sheep hear my voice”, “being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23).
This glorious God is worthy of our worship, adoration and trust.
Nothing is too hard for Him.
No prayer is too hard for Him to answer.
No need too great for Him to supply.
No passion too strong for Him to subdue.
No temptation too powerful for Him to deliver us from.
No misery to deep for him to relieve.
