The LORD is slow to anger and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet. (Nahum 1:3)

The Bible is replete with descriptions of God's power. In Psalm 74:16 we read, you established the sun and moon. In Matthew 5:45 Jesus said, He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. In Genesis 1:16 we read, He also made the stars, and of course Genesis 1:1 summarizes his unimaginable creative powers.

Why do men try to minimize God's infinite power? Do they not recognize his immense, loving grace demonstrated to all by his slowness to anger for ungodly thoughts and actions?

It seems to me that the bottom line for many is that they want to be their own god. This is seen in “self-made” men and in the secular humanism that dominates our culture.

Christians have no excuse since they should know the truth. No matter their gifts or calling, they must remember the reality of God's power over all things and not let human pride blind them as they live out their few remaining days here on earth. The days here are short, but the promise for the future is great!
