Blessed Be the Name of the Lord!

Blessed be the Name of God forever and ever! The Name of God is used synonymously with God Himself. May we always praise God with gratitude for His wisdom and power!

God is omniscient and omnipotent. He is wise and He is able. "To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are His." (Job 12:13) "Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit." (Psalm 147:5) God is infinite in wisdom and power. He uses His wisdom and power to govern the world and bring about His plans and purposes.

Wisdom

Nothing surprises God. He is all-knowing. He knows every detail of our lives and every detail of world events. He knows everything from eternity to eternity. Nothing is hidden from God. He knows what's best for us. We just need to trust and obey. He graciously gives wisdom to all who asks in faith. "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt." (James 1: 5-6a) "For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 2:6) "Be thankful that God's answers are wiser than your prayers." (William Culbertson) 

Power/Might/Strength

Nothing is too difficult for God. He is all-powerful. Nothing is impossible for God. The power that raised Christ from the dead is available to us. His power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9b). When we acknowledge our weakness and rely on Him, He empowers us and strengthens us. Are you just going through the motions and depending on your own strength? Or are you abiding in Christ and constantly connected to the Power Source?
