God’s power is indescribable. It cannot fully be comprehended.
As D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones well articulated it: “Take all the dictionaries of the world, exhaust all the vocabularies, and when you have added them all together you have still not begun to describe the greatness of God’s power.”
Scripture is full of this concept …
- Psalm 62:11 – God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.
- Psalm 65:6 – [He] established the mountains by His strength, Being clothed with power; …
- Psalm 68:34-35 – Ascribe strength to God; His excellence is over Israel, And His strength is in the clouds. O God, You are more awesome than Your holy places. The God of Israel is He who gives strength and power to His people. Blessed be God!
- Psalm 106:8 – Nevertheless He saved them for His name’s sake, That He might make His mighty power known.
- Psalm 147:5 – Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.
And if the power of God is indescribable, how much more indescribable and unfathomable and great is our God behind that power?!
Before we begin our mini-series examining the first example Paul gives of God’s power (Ephesians 1:20-23), we step back and look at the global picture of how Paul talks about the power of God in the first three chapters of Ephesians and the four key examples Paul gives.
Using these four examples (or demonstrations of God’s power), Paul explains that no matter what you may be facing, God’s power is sufficient and able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than you could ever ask or imagine.
Join Nathan Johnson in this expositional study looking at the power of God demonstrated throughout the book of Ephesians.
