1) Power over quantity.
As the evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and but themselves some food." Jesus replied, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat." "We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish," they answered. "Bring them here to me," he said. And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and we're satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
2) Power over nature.
Mark 4:35-39. That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "let us go over to the other side." Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern sleeping on a cushion. The disciples wake him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?" He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quite! Be still!" Then the wind died down and it was completely down.
3) Power over death.
When Lazarus died, his sisters' Mary and Martha hopes died with him. However, God transformed their impossibility into the perfect opportunity to glorify God by bringing Lazarus back to life.
