In the world today many people has always underestimated the power of God. We underestimate the power of God because our hearts are hardened He reveals Himself in a new way to make our belief run true. Therefore, don’t underestimate the power of God He can do more than you think.
Now, God thought about you before you thought about Him. God says that He determined how He was going to use you for His glory before you even existed on earth. To underestimate is to guess that something is worth less or is smaller than it really is. God is all powerful, all knowing, all capable. There are no limits restricting God. Yet despite this, people tend to underestimate God’s unlimited power by erroneous thinking. You cannot underestimate God’s power to work out His purposes in your life. Some people see God as severe, stern and cold, sitting on His throne, waiting for us to mess up so that He can rap our knuckles with a trial or tribulation. This isn’t the God of the bible. However, scripture reveals a multifaceted God who loves righteousness, but also overflows with love, compassion and grace. God’s reputation is sometimes based on hearsay and tradition, not the truth found in His word.
If you come to know God through scripture and have a relationship with Him, you begin to see that He is so much more than you understood, or were taught by assuming unbelievers. When you underestimate the power of God, your expectations of Him are low. When you begin to see His true greatness, hope replaces resignation and rises. No matter how overwhelming things can seem at times, the enemy is not powerful than God. There is a battle raging for the souls of mankind, but God already has the declared victory. You must not be deceived that the enemy, created by God, can outwit God, even for a moment in time. God’s side is the safe side. He empowers His people and helps them, no matter how desperate things may appear. You may know that God is powerful and able, but may question if He will choose to use His power on your behalf. I want to encourage you that God is on your side, and that He is actively involved in your life.
Sometimes you underestimate His plans and direction for your life. God did not create you, then take a seat in Heaven, waiting to see what you will make out of life. God has given you intelligence and choices, but He will also help you with decisions when you ask. His plans for you are good. He wants you to live rich and satisfying life. John 10:10 says, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. Because of Christ, each of us has purpose, destiny and hope of abundant life.
We underestimate His desire to be with us. Some of us are so busy dutifully serving God that we don’t realize that He wants to be with us because of who we are more than for what we do. God desires to reveal Himself and His secrets to those who serve Him. You shouldn’t settle to be servant when God wants to bring you into His inner circle. Be rest assured that God is accessible any time, because He neither slumber nor sleep. He always wants to be with you. He actually seeks to draw you to Himself.
We underestimate His creativity. When you are in a hard situation and don’t see a way out, you can become seriously discouraged and hopeless. The good news is that God is all knowing and is not bound by time, so He has your situation figured out even before you realize you are in it. Your prayers invite Him to come into your situation and to work His miracles in your life. His orchestration of situations and answers to your prayers can blow you away. It is amazing that the God of ultimate power, creativity, originality and wisdom is the same God that loved you enough to come down to be with you on earth. Can God who longs to call you His friend be the same God that you struggle to believe, trust and worship.
