The power of God

Every day gives us the opportunity to discover more about the power of God and His Christ. To those engaged in Christian healing, an ever expanding sense of divine power is essential. The world's limited appreciation of the magnitude of God's might subjects mankind to difficulties that would never occur if people knew that God was actually all-power, the only power and cause there ever was or ever will be.

There are many who believe that God is powerful, but they also tend to believe that He exercises His power on man's behalf very rarely. A recent popular song declared that "God is watching us—from a distance." It is this sense of distance that is troubling rather than comforting. It evokes uncertainty. Is God impassively watching us struggle and suffer, waiting to see if we'll make it? Is He willing to help? Can He reach across that distance and come to our aid? Does His power work here?
