Power is important and it is classified into different areas, including political, technical, skillful, sexual, economic, and spiritual power.

What does the Bible say about God and power?

One of the key bible verses where the Bible talks about God and power is Psalm 62:11, where it clearly says that “all power belongs to God”.

Ps. 62:11
Exo 3:19-20
Acts 1:4,8

Christianity and Godliness doesn’t render a person useless and vulnerable to manipulation and victimization. That you are a Christian does not leave you defenseless and a victim of attacks. You can resist attempts on you and wield power over the enemies of your life.
