Under the Old Covenant God always showed Himself as the Mighty One, who no one could fight against.

Those had to me such mighty works that they could not be denied coming from God Himself, through Christ.
Will we acknowledge The Mighty and Mighty Works He has done in us through Christ? He says that we would be strengthened with all “might” according to His glorious power. We are commanded, to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His Might.

Father, help us to remember that nothing is impossible to those who believe. We pray that the eyes of our hearts are flooded with light that we can know you, the Mighty One who never leaves us nor forsakes us and is working in us according to your glorious power to believe and walk in all that you have for us as your children!
Remember, you are Loved, you are Righteous, and you are His!
