Scripture Reading: Philippians 3:17-4:1

“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself.” (Philippians 3:20,21)

What enables Jesus Christ to transform our lowly bodies to be like His glorious body? The answer is — “by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself.” Jesus Christ is omnipotent,that is, all powerful. His power enables Him to subject ALL THINGS to Himself. Nothing is more powerful than the power of Jesus.

It was the power of Christ that brought about creation — “For by Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities — all things were created through Him and for Him” (Colossians 1:16). It is the power of Christ that holds all things together in the universe — “And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17).

It is the power of Christ that has disarmed Satan and his evil forces — “He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in Him” (Colossians 2:15). It is the power of Christ that will defeat all the enemies of Christ, including the last enemy, death — “For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death” (I Corinthians 15:25,26).

Let us never underestimate the power of Jesus Christ. His power is available to us, especially in our weakness — “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness” (II Corinthians 12:9). When we are weak, He is strong. He comes to our aid. We have nothing to fear for the all powerful Lord Jesus Christ is with us always.

Lord Jesus, omnipotent God, how comforting to know that You are all powerful. Nothing and no one can stand up against Your power. You subject all things to Yourself. I have nothing to fear, for You are with me. You will protect me, defend me, and deliver me. I rest in Your all powerful hands.
