“Kept by the power of God”, what is the power of God?

God once spoke and said, let there be light, and their was light.
Lets look at this verse. We have to first make the assumption that the word of God interprets itself. If the word mentions a thing or concept then somewhere in the word it tells you the definition . Lets look at this verse.

King James Bible Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

So we see in this verse the “power of God” = “the gospel of Christ” “To those that believe”
We also see from genesis that God exercise his power by his words.

Gods action in us is limited by Gods power. God is not limited but he will show his power in us in direct relationship to certain things.
Those things are our belief. The object of our belief is God’s word.
Jesus said he gave us the keys to the kingdom of heaven and whatever we unlocked on earth was unlocked in heaven or whatever we locked on earth is locked in heaven. He said this another way. “as your faith is so it be done unto you.”
The object of his power is his word. His word is limited in your existence by your faith. You can see this relationship between God’s unlimited power (contained in his word) being limited to our belief in the “object of his power” in this verse.
King James Bible Ephesians 3:20
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
So Gods word + your belief= God working on your behalf.
This is the power that guards a Christian. You can see that in this verse.
King James Bible 1 Peter 1:5
Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

So the power of God is at work in us that believe and inoperative in those that do not believe. The power of God is at work in Christians in direct relationship to their belief in Gods word. Jesus said, If you believe and don’t doubt than you will have whatever you ask for.

Having scriptures to place our faith in gives us a firm foundation. It says that God has ALL READY given us everything we need. The provision is in his word ready to be unlocked by whosoever will believe.

King James Bible
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue

Everything God has already given us is ready to be unlocked or locked up by you who has the keys. His word is his keys, your faith is the power to use them. If you need something find the promise in the bible that says God has granted it to you. Stand on that. Stand on it until you see it in this natural world. Heaven is a higher existence than this one and faith and patience (the power twins) work with God’s word to bring you what you need. This natural world and even your own reasoning will argue with God’s word. But if you stand on the word you won’t be disappointed. (he that believes in him will not be disappointed) The word says we will reap if we faint not. It also says that every promise is yea and amen in him. You are in him by faith. All the promises are yours. Your the key master. Your faith the gate keeper.
