GOD’S POWER MANIFESTED IN VARYING DEGREES
God puts forth His power in VARYING degrees, proportioned to the work which He has before Him. Thus, Christ referred to His casting out of demons “with the FINGER of God” (Luke 11:20). Speaking to Israel, Moses said, “With a strong HAND hath the Lord brought thee out of Egypt” (Exodus 13:9). When referring to the amazing miracle of the Divine incarnation Mary said, “HE hath showed strength with His ARM” (Luke 1:51).
But when Paul prayed that God would enlighten His saints to apprehend His stupendous miracle of grace in salvation, it was that they might know “THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS of His power to us-ward”. [Eph 1:19]
