Spiritual wonders

He has declared and made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the heritage of the nations. – Psalm 111:6

They have seen what he is able to do and what force he is prepared to put forth on their behalf. This power Israel saw in physical works, and we in spiritual wonders, for we behold the matchless energy of the Holy Ghost and feel it in our own souls. In times of dire distress the Lord has put forth such energy of grace that we have been astonished at his power; and this was part of his intent in bringing us into such conditions that he might reveal to us the arm of his strength. Could we ever have known it so well if we had not been in pressing need of his help? We may well turn this verse into a prayer and ask to see more and more the power of the Lord at work among us in these latter days. O Lord, let us now see how mightily thou canst work in the saving of sinners and in preserving and delivering thine own people. That he may give them the heritage of the heathen. He put forth all his power to drive out the Canaanites and bring in his people. Even thus may it please his infinite wisdom to give to his church the heathen for her inheritance in the name of Jesus. Nothing but great power can effect this, but it will surely be accomplished in due season. – Spurgeon

“Koach” is derived from a root verb that means “to be firm!” It is “force,” here in a good sense, being used of God. In our Bible it is used as “strength, power, might, force, and ability.” This word is placed first in the verse in the Hebrew Bible. That means the Holy Spirit means it to be emphasized! A power verse indeed! – Dr. Mike Bagwell
