God Has The Power Not Man

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Pastor Ron had gotten a book of quotes. Another one that I found very interesting was by Orville Thompson.

"Who are "they" that hold so much power over our lives?

I think back to a message that Bruce Johnson gave a while back when Pastor Ron was out of town. The main point was that we need to be seeking the approval of God not man. A man only has power when other men give it to him. One of the ways we give power to men is by seeking their approval. But God's power does not hinge on man seeking His approval. God is powerful regardless if man acknowledges that power.

The people Thompson refers to ("they") look rather insignificant when compared to our God of infinite power.
