Omnipotence

Additional Links
(ahm nih' poh tihnce) The state of being all-powerful which theology ascribes to God. Scripture often affirms that all power belongs to God (Psalm 147:5 ), that all things are possible for God (Luke 1:37; Luke 19:26 ), and that God's power exceeds what humans can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20 ). For Scripture, God's omnipotence is not a matter of abstract speculation but a force to be reckoned with. God's power is revealed in God's creating and sustaining the universe (Psalm 65:6; Jeremiah 32:17; Hebrews 1:3 ), in God's deliverance of Israel from Pharaoh's forces (Exodus 15:1-18 ), in the conquest of Canaan (Deuteronomy 3:21-24 ), in the incarnation (Luke 1:35 ), in Christ's death on the cross (1 Corinthians 1:17-18 , 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 ), and in the ongoing ministry of the church (1 Corinthians 2:5; Ephesians 3:20 ).
