What was the largest amphibious assault of all time?

What do you think of when you think of power? I generally think of something
that demonstrates power or force, such as Niagara Falls or an Atomic Bomb.
Sometimes we think of power in the form of people or armies, maybe political
power or maybe the power to influence or persuade others (such as he or she
is a powerful speaker).

Of course we know that God is the ultimate power, but being human we
sometimes forget how he works in our world. We think of him only on a
spiritual being that doesn't interfere with the world in which we live.

This concept was brought into focus for me by the following true story:
A teacher writes, "I had been teaching my seventh-graders about World War
II, and a test question was, "What was the largest amphibious assault of all
time?" Expecting to see "the D-Day invasion" as the answer, I found instead
on one paper, "Moses and the plague of frogs."
How would you have answered? Do you think God still has an interest in our
Paul reminds the church in Rome of this fact in Romans 13:1 where he writes:
"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no
authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist
have been established by God."

I like another illustration of God's power in Romans 1:16 where Paul writes:
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God
unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to
the Greek."

The word "power" in the Greek is the word dunamis (doo'-nam-is) and is the
same root word from which we get the words Dynamo or Dynamite. So, when
things get difficult in your life or you are facing some crises, don't
forget the greatest power. Don't forget we have a connection to the creator
and sustainer of the universe, Our God!
