When we take a look at the word might in the Bible we can find many different things that are said about it. Who has that effective power? Who does not, and how can we get it? These are all questions that we can ask and find the answers for in the Bible.
First of all, let’s take a look at the first question; Who has that effective power, who has that might? Well the Bible tells us that God is the only one with true power, He is the Only One. "And said, O Lord God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? And rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee." II Chronicles 20:6
Here we can see the irresistible might and power of the Lord our God, we can see that not only is He God in heaven but also the Lord rules over all the kingdoms and that there is power and might in his hand, nobody is able to stand up against Him. What is funny is how so many people try and fail, so many people take a stand that there is no God and other such nonsense, but when the Day of Judgment comes I am sure that they will begin to think differently. God is the only one here that has any real power and it is about time that people start to recognize that fact….the power of God is so great and so far above everything that we can even imagine that it seems strange at times that we fail to recognize it, even us Christians.
Another aspect of the words power and might that we find in the Bible is how we humans have power and what it can do to us. Turn to Deuteronomy 8:17
"And thou shalt say in thine heart, mine power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: or it is he that giveth power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto his fathers, as it is this day."
How many poor people in this world are considered powerful? How many beggars are respected and treated as if the world was in their hands? None. Generally the people that are considered powerful are the ones that have the money to back it up, and then there are the people that just think that they are powerful. Here we can find in the above verses a very clear warning to all those that begin to take God out of the equation and think that they have reached that place that they are in, no matter how high or low, a place that they have gotten to without God…or in other words, through their own power.
