“Regimes planted by bayonets do not take root… Our military strength is a prerequisite to peace, but let it be clear we maintain this strength in the hope it will never be used, for the ultimate determinant in the struggle that’s now going on in the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas, a trial of spiritual resolve, the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish, the ideals to which we are dedicated.”― Ronald Reagan, The Quest for Peace, the Cause of Freedom
The power of God is not in His destructive ability, although He can tear down mountains, crumble great walls and crack the earth wide open.
The power of God isn’t even in the fact that He can create worlds, bring life to plants and animals, part seas or even raise the dead.
The power of God is best seen in His ability to hold back His wrath from all who have sinned. In His relentless pursuit of a wayward and fallen mankind and in His ability to transform a worthless soul into His beloved bride.
The strongest resolve is not in conquest, success or discovery, but in love, for the power of love is an indomitable force, stronger than life itself.
