Everything in life was created with potential and possesses the potential principle. Creation abounds with potential because the Creator Himself is the potential principle. When we describe God, we often say He is omnipotent. Omnipotent means that God is always potent. Made up of two words: omni, meaning "always," and potent, meaning "full of power," omnipotent means that God is potentially everything. He has within Him the potential for all that is, was, or ever will be. He is omnipotent or omnipotent. Everything that was, and everything that is, was in God. That's a very important concept. Everything that was and is, was in God. We have to start with God. Before God made anything, before He created things there was only god. So before anything was, God is. God is the root, or source, of all life. Before there was time, time was, but it was in God. Before God created a galaxy or the Milky Way, they existed. Before there was a universe or a planetary system with the third planet called earth revolving around the sun before any of that was, they were. I wonder what it must have been like when God was just by Himself. Let's try to imagine that for a bit. Here's God. He steps out on nothing to view nothing, for there was nothing except God. And so God is standing on top of nothing, looking at nothing because everything was in Him.
