All-Powerful, Almighty God

Have you ever wondered how food is converted to blood, bone marrow, bone, energy etc. in our body? Have you ever wondered how a seed grows into a full blown tree? Have you ever wondered how Sun rises daily without fail & nourishes the whole creation, beings by its life giving energy? Have you ever wondered how so many species are born & survive in this world? Who is behind all these miracles of life? No human being is having all these powers to produce all these miracles. It just cannot happen on its own. Only a superhuman Godly being having supernatural powers can do all these miraculous acts.

Believers call this all-powerful, superhuman being that makes all this possible as GOD. He is omnipotent, who is having unlimited powers & ability. He is a supernatural being who can create worlds & all this unlimited, infinite creation. He is considered all-powerful & has created all these universes. So God is supreme & is having power over all the things.

Omnipotence is the attribute of God which describes his ability to do whatever He wills. No one or no force or happening can frustrate or prevent God from accomplishing his designs. God's power is sufficient to fulfill all his purposes and promises, including his promise of eternal life for all who obey Him.

The term Omnipotent has been used to connote a number of different positions in regard to God. These positions include, but are not limited to, the following:

• God is able to do anything that is logically possible for it to do.
• God is able to do anything that it chooses to do.
• God is able to do anything that is in accord with its own nature (thus, for instance, if it is a logical consequence of God's nature that what it speaks is truth, then it is not able to lie).
• Hold that it is part of God's nature to be consistent and that it would be inconsistent for God to go against its own laws unless there was a reason to do so.
• God is able to do anything that is with its world plan.
• God is able to do absolutely anything, even the logically impossible.

However, on all understandings of Omnipotence, it is generally held that God is able to intervene in the world by superseding the laws of physics, since they are not part of its nature, but the principles on which it has created the physical world.

Bhagwat Gita also talks about God to be Omnipotent. Below are some verses regarding that:

"namah purastad atha prsthatas te
namo ’stu te sarvata eva sarva
ananta-viryamita-vikramas tvam
sarvam samapnosi tato ’si sarvah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter 11- verse 40)

"Arjuna said to Lord Sri Krishna: Obeisance's to You from the front, from behind and from all sides! O All powerful, You are the master of Limitless might! You are all-pervading, and thus You are everything!"

"yad aditya-gatam tejo
jagad bhasayate ’khilam
yac chandramasi yac chagnau
tat tejo viddhi mamakam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fifteen verse 12)

"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, The splendor of the sun, which dissipates the darkness of this whole world, comes from Me. And the splendor of the moon and the splendor of fire are also comes from Me."

"bijam mam sarva-bhutanam
viddhi partha sanatanam
buddhir buddhimatam asmi
tejas tejasvinam aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Seven verse 10)

"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, know that I am the original seed of all existences, the intelligence of the intelligent, and the prowess of all powerful men."

"yo mam evam asammudho
janati purushottamam
sa sarva-vid bhajati mam
sarva-bhavena bharata" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fifteen verse 19)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Whoever knows Me as the All powerful Supreme God, without doubting, is the knower of everything. He therefore engages himself in full devotional service to Me."

So let’s worship that all-powerful, almighty God as by just having faith in Him only we can solve all the problems in our life. Why to beg in front of limited power humans? Let’s be directly in contact with that omnipotent God, who with His all unlimited powers shall solve all the problems of our life.

Jai Sri Krishna

Practically nobody believed that I will survive.However I saw GOD in form of SAIBABA and Swami Samartha talikng to me , removing the deadly infection in the body and tellling me that , I have to complete my Life Mission of writing Bhag vad Gita in English and marathi poetic form during balance Life span which was debited from next janma and credited now.I wonder whetehr any body can believe it.
