Daily Readings — The Almighty!

Day 2176: Seek first the kingdom of God . . .

Scripture: “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8

Thoughts/questions: People will often start their prayers with ‘Dear God Almighty’ or ‘Almighty God’ yet do we believe it or even know what we’re saying? We should, since God described Himself that way!

Almighty is defined ‘as having complete power; omnipotent.‘ Think about it – Our God, The Almighty, has COMPLETE POWER!!!

Now all of the readers ‘know’ it, but do we believe it??? When we are in a challenging situation which appears overwhelming, do we believe it? When we observe the world situation, do we believe it? When we become aware of the plight of Christ followers who are being martyred and persecuted, do we believe it? When we watch the ‘change’ in culture in the United States, do we believe it?

I’ve heard this phrase used and recommend it to all when faced with any of the above – ‘He is the Almighty!’ No matter what things appear to be on the surface, speak this out loud – ‘He is the Almighty’ and keep saying it until you believe it!!!

Suggested prayer: Almighty God, may this not merely be a name I call You. May I mean it with all of my heart, soul, and mind . . .
