Power to begin with, is simply the ability, strength and capacity to do, control or influence something, people or their actions. Power, in the strict sense of this discourse, is the dynamic ability to cause changes, perform tasks, utilize opportunities, and handle challenges. It is also the faculty to create. Man is a being in who have been invested, different kinds of powers. To say then that man is a powerful being would be correct –especially if one takes into consideration the fact that at creation, Man was made the Governor of the whole earth.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat” (Gen.1:28 – 29)
