Out my back windows, I have a glorious view of Pike’s Peak. This time of year, the peak glistens with white snow. Standing in contrast to the vivid blue Colorado sky, it’s an absolutely breathtaking view. It reminds me daily of Almighty God who formed the mountains with His hand, who threw the stars in space, and who breathed life into every living creature on the planet. All of creation exalts Him and sings His glory! As I gaze through my window at the wonders of creation, I am reminded that with God Almighty nothing is impossible!
When the angel Gabriel visited Mary and said she would give birth to a son though she was still a virgin, he stated emphatically, “With God nothing is impossible!” (Luke 1:37). Those words are as powerful today as they were back then.
Living in a world gone wonky with school shootings, a global pandemic that continues to morph, and rising numbers of anxiety, fear, and depression, we need to be reminded of Almighty God. The Prophet Isaiah foretold the birth of Jesus, describing Him as Wonderful Counselor, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). The Psalmist wrote, “Who is like you LORD God Almighty?” He goes on to write, “Your arm is endowed with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted” (Psalm 89:8,13). What a beautiful, prophetic picture of Jesus. Don’t be deceived, though – He came as an infant, He came as Almighty God.
My fellow Moody author, Asheritah Ciuciu writes so eloquently, “We do not rifle with a weakling, nor do we worship an incompetent wannabe rock star. We worship the King of kings who deserves all the honor and glory, and continually receives it from the heavens, creation, angels, and the chorus of the redeemed.”
We need the reminder, don’t we? In worshipping Jesus, we worship Almighty God. Nothing can thwart His sovereign plans; nothing catches Him by surprise nor trips Him up. He is the absolute Almighty One.
What does this mean for you and me?
Life-Changing Truths about Jesus as Almighty God
As Almighty God, Jesus Provides Exceedingly and Abundantly Beyond All You Ask or Think. His provision is perfect. He provided the solution to every one of your needs on the cross. Not only that, but He continues to provide abundantly. He provides a shield around our thinking. He provides food and clothing. He provides His continual presence to heal our loneliness. His provision is perfect. All that you need He will provide. 2 Peter 1:3 assures us that, “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”
As Almighty God, He Transforms Us by His Spirit. Jesus not only provides for us beyond what we are able to imagine, He also transforms us by His Spirit. Friend, at different times in your spiritual journey you may become discouraged, wondering, “Am I changing at all?” Rest assured, as you yield yourself to Almighty God, He is changing you. He is transforming you by the power of His Spirit (Philippians 2:13).
As Almighty God, He Resurrects Our Broken Dreams. All of us have had broken dreams. In those moments we feel hopeless. But Jesus, as Almighty God, is able to bring resurrection. He is the one who said, “I Am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25). When your dreams die, it’s time for a resurrection! As Almighty God, Jesus is able to take our broken dreams and resurrection wholeness and beauty and renewed vision. Friend, if you have broken dreams this Christmas, may I encourage you? Yield those broken dreams to Almighty God. He is able to take the pieces and resurrect something so beautiful that it will leave you stunned!
As you celebrate this Advent season, worship Jesus Christ as Almighty God; the One who provides beyond what we can imagine, the One who transforms us by His Spirit, and the One who resurrects our broken dreams.
