The Bible is full of Scriptures to support the power in the word of God. Light came into existence through the power of Gods spoken word (Genesis 1:3), also the entire universe was made by the Word of God.
Our God is the creator of heaven and earth, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, the One who knows all things and specializes in bringing to pass the impossible. All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him – that is why He is called the Almighty God.
While it is impossible for anyone to fully understand the might and majesty of God, a better understanding of His creative power, wisdom, and authority could be made visible by considering the works of His hands, according to Psalms 8:3-4 Considering the almightiness of God therefore, whenever He says yes, one cannot help but wonder why anybody would want to oppose Him.
Since the fall of man, mankind has been found in opposition to the Almighty God, to their own detriment. Humanity is used to striving with God from the very beginning.
Striving with God is the fruitless opposition of the ungodly to the will of God. It is also the struggle of the righteous with Gods commandments as they seek to obey it.
However, the striving of the wicked with God is usually the result of a guilty conscience. To this end, Genesis 4:9 says, And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
Many Christians today are equally striving with God by holding a view that is contrary to the word of God. Anybody striving against God can never succeed. God says in Isaiah 46:10, My counsel shall stand, And I will do all my pleasure.
Also Proverbs 19:21 says, There are many devices in a man’s heart; Nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand. Do not resist the Holy Spirit or be found arguing with God. Don’t ever try to attack Gods people or practice unbelief, lest you be found guilty of striving with God.
The creative power of our Sovereign God is as potent as ever, and our God still rules the affairs of the universe today. He is the ultimate controller of everything in heaven, on earth, and under the earth. Forever, His word is settled in heaven (Psalms 119:89).

HYMN: JESUS MY LORD MY GOD MY ALL
1. Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,
hear me, blest Savior, when I call;
hear me, and from thy dwelling place
pour down the riches of thy grace.
Refrain: Jesus, my Lord, I thee adore;
O make me love thee more and more.
2. Jesus, too late I thee have sought;
how can I love thee as I ought?
And how extol thy matchless fame,
the glorious beauty of thy name?
3. Jesus, what didst thou find in me
that thou hast dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that thou hast brought,
so far exceeding hope or thought!
4. Jesus, of thee shall be my song;
to thee my heart and soul belong;
all that I have or am is thine,
and thou, blest Savior, thou art mine.
