There is but one only,living, and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts,or passions; immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise,(Of God, and of the Holy Trinity -WCF Chapter II -I)

When the Bible declares that God is Almighty, it simply mean that God is all powerful and  unlimited in power and He  has absolute power over all. He is not limited in any way.  He alone has unlimited authority and influence, He is omnipotent.  In all of creation, there is no power like His for He alone is The Creator. No other  power, seen and unseen, able to or can withstand Him. No power, before or now or that to come, can oppose Him. He is not weary and He does not fail for nothing can thwart what  He purposes to do. God is the supreme power,  He is LORD and there is no other: For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. (Ps 95:3).

It is  interesting to note that the word Almighty, with reference to God, occurs no less than fifty seven times in the Bible. An Almighty God revealed to Abraham and declared to  him  in Genesis 17:1, “the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty;..”

The Apostle John  saw and heard and recorded for us : “And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”” Rev 4:8

In the book of Job, the reference to God as Almighty occurs 32 times,  Job was humbled and  learned anew that God is God and He is The Almighty God:  Job 37:23-38:1-2,4  The Almighty–we cannot find him; he is great in power; justice and abundant righteousness he will not violate. Therefore men fear him; he does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.  Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? ”…… “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding.

"Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? ''...... "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Job 37-38

Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: "Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? ''...... "Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Job 37-38

As we enter a new year of where many storms of  uncertainties are still brewing in the horizon, lets always  keep in view, our faith is in the  God of the Bible  who is ALMIGHTY and He is also Good, Faithful and Unchangeable.
