Do verses in the Bible say God is omnipotent?

Reasons given for answering "Yes"
  • Jesus & Paul said “with God all is possible”

      That “with God all things are possible” is something affirmed by both Jesus and Paul.1, 2 This is relevant because omnipotence is frequently understood the ability to do anything, or anything logically/metaphysically possible, or as supreme power (of a supremely excellent and worship-worthy being).

      1. See:

        Mark 10:27 -- Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
        Matthew 19:26 -- Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
        Luke 1:37 -- For nothing will be impossible with God.”

      2. See:

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

  • Jeremiah 32:27 says nothing is “too hard” for God

      It says in Jeremiah 32:27 -- “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me? 1, 2 This is relevant because omnipotence is frequently understood the ability to do anything, or anything logically/metaphysically possible, or as supreme power (of a supremely excellent and worship-worthy being).

  • Job 42:2 & Isa. 46:10 says God's will is absolute

      Both Job 42 and Isaiah 46 say that no purpose of God's can be thwarted.1 This is relevant because omnipotence is frequently understood the ability to do anything, or anything logically/metaphysically possible, or as supreme power (of a supremely excellent and worship-worthy being).

      1. See:

        Job 42:2 -- “I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted.

        Isaiah 46:10 -- Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;

      2. Relatedly, God creates at will:

        Psalm 33:6 -- By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And by the breath of His mouth all their host.

        Romans 4:17 -- even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist.

        John 1:3 -- All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

  • The Bible says God is supremely worthy of praise

      Verses in the Bible say that God is supremely worthy of praise. This is relevant because a great-making property is the ability to do whatever a supremely powerful being could do.
