Romans 16:25. Now to him that is able to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which has been kept secret since the world began,

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us who are saved it is the power of God. 24 But to them who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

But when he says all things are put under him, it is evident that he is excepted, who did put all things under him.

2 Corinthians 3:4 And such trust we have through Christ toward God: 5 Not that we are sufficient by ourselves to think any thing as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; 6. Who also has made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life.

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God, and not from us.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 13:3 Since you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me, who toward you is not weak, but is mighty in you. 4 For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. 10 Therefore I write these things being absent, lest being present I should use sharpness, according to the power which the Lord has given me to edification, and not to destruction.

Ephesians 1:19 And what [is] the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the heavenly [places], 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22 And put all [things] under his feet, and gave him [to be] the head over all [things] to the church, 23 Which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.

Ephesians 3:7 Of which I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given to me by the effectual working of his power. 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 20 Now to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Ephesians 6:10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of [his] good pleasure.

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable to his death; 21 Who shall change our lowly body, that it may be fashioned like his glorious body, according to the working by which he is able even to subdue all things to himself.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

God created all the power that there is in the universe. What a dynamo of power He must be. We can's possibly imagine how much power he has, but we can tap into that power by the Holy Spirit. Zec. 4 states that it is not by might, not by power but by My Spirit says the Lord. Let's look to Him to be the source of any power or strength we have need of. Is anything too hard for God? The verses above declare a resounding NO! Is anything too hard for God to do through us personally? That is the bottom line question that we must deal with daily.
