God's Power Illustrations

  • God's Power

    storm cloudsA boy was helping his mother bring the clothes in off the line as a storm threatened.

    As they brought in the last armload and closed the door, the boy waved his hand at the heavens and said, "Okay God! Let'er go!"

  • Our Greatest Need

    cross“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist.

    If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician.

    If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor.

    But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death;

    ... and he sent us a Savior. ”

    ― D.A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and His Prayers

  • Sovereignty and Wisdom of God

    storm cloudsA passenger jet was suffering through a severe thunderstorm.

    As the passengers were being bounced around by the turbulence a young woman turned to a minister sitting next to her and with a nervous laugh asked,

    "Reverend, you're a man of God. Can't you do something about this storm?"

    To this he replied, "Lady, I'm in sales, not management."

  • Squeezed

    tree with vineWalking through a park, I passed a massive oak tree. A vine had grown up along its trunk. The vine started small - nothing to bother about. But over the years the vine had gotten taller and taller. By the time I passed, the entire lower half of the tree was covered by the vine's creepers. The mass of tiny feelers was so thick that the tree looked as though it had innumerable birds' nests in it.

    Now the tree was in danger. This huge, solid oak was quite literally being taken over; the life was being squeezed from it. But the gardeners in that park had seen the danger.

  • The Weight of Prayer

    scales balanceThe Weight of Prayer (Author Unknown)

    Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

    John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store. Visualizing the family needs, she said: "Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can." John told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account at his store.

  • Where God Ain't

    dandylionHe was just a little boy, on a week's first day.
    He was wandering home from Sunday School, and dawdling on the way.

    He scuffed his shoes into the grass; he found a caterpillar.
    He found a fluffy milkweed pod, and blew out all the "filler."

    A bird's nest in a tree overhead, so wisely placed on high.
    Was just another wonder that caught his eager eye.
