Holman Bible Dictionary
(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
