"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse" (Romans 1:20 NIV).
I do not understand how a human being cannot believe in God. I love this verse in Romans because it minces no words when it declares that God's power is visible all around us on earth. Paul seems quite indignant to those who seem to ignore all the tangible signs of His power.
Paul assures us of Jesus' power when he quotes Jesus, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong" (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV).
We, too, can take solace during the difficulties of our lives and claim Jesus' power as our own! Truly, even the worst times of our lives reveal that our weakness is transformed into strength through our faith in Jesus Christ, the Son who saves us with His power.
