In the Bible there are many references to the power of God. For example we read in Psalms (62: 11), "Power belongeth unto God;" and in Revelation (19:6), "The Lord God omnipotent reigneth."

In both the Old and the New Testament there are many instances of people being healed, protected. and delivered by recognizing God as the only power. Daniel in the lions' den is an example. Daniel had always prayed to God and must have acknowledged Him as the only God. When in the den of lions he expressed neither fear nor doubt. Understanding God to be omnipotent, he knew that evil had no power to injure him. and so he emerged unharmed. There is also the experience of Paul and Silas in prison, with their feet in the stocks. They acknowledged God and sang praises unto Him. Thus recognizing His power to save them, could they fail to be delivered? No! They were freed by the power of God. the power of good.

And yet, in spite of all this, for centuries mankind has been taught that there are two powers: good and evil. Mary Baker Eddy reveals for all time the great spiritual fact that there is one real power. She states in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 228): "There is no power apart from God. Omnipotence has all-power, and to acknowledge any other power is to dishonor God."
