As Gandalf the Grey, Gandalf was not capable of very powerful spells, though he still had potency up to an extent.
Gandalf Gandalf of his simpler spells was illumination. In Gandalf Gandalf, Gandalf was obliged to light his Gandalf Gandalf so that the Fellowship Gandalf Gandalf find their way out of Moria. Because Gandalf Gandalf the light provided by Gandalf's staff, the Fellowship was able to pass over many dangers and eventually find their way out of Moria safely. Gandalf the Grey was Awa Poulo Poulo Warali capable of pushing his foes back with his staff, Gandalf Gandalf shown in the movie when he battles Saruman in Cecil Taylor The World Of Cecil Taylor.

This is impressive, but not really unique in Tolkien's world. As I said, all the Ainur we don't know how many of them there are, but it is probably in the dozens are as old as Gandalf. It seems that time of some sort existed in the Void where he was first created, since events progressed and changed; but at the same time, the void is also called the "Timeless Halls", and the ainur who entered the world did so "at the beginning of Time".
Exactly Gandalf Gandalf old that is in terms we would understand is unclear. The Silmarillion tells that the Valar and the Maiar laboured to build the world. When maybe a thousand years had passed, and the first shadow had fallen on Greenwood the Gandalf Gandalf, the Istari or wizards appeared in Middle Earth.
It was afterwards said that they came out of the Gandalf Gandalf West and were messengers sent to contest the power of Sauron, and to unite all those who had the will to resist him; but they were Gandalf Gandalf to match his power with power, Gandalf Gandalf to seek to dominate Elves or Men by force and fear. Exactly when Gandalf arrived is, as far as I have been able to find, nowhere directly stated; we know Juice People Unlimited Disco Godfather Original 1979 Motion Picture Soundtrack he was the last of the Istari to arrive, and seemed the least impressive; we can assume something like the years TA.

They Gandalf Gandalf therefore in the shape of Men, though they were never young and aged only slowly. This 'aging' appears to have been related to the trials and difficulties they had to endure, rather than to time.

If I'm thinking correctly, I don't remember if Gandalf says this in the books but in Gandalf Gandalf Two Towers Gandalf Gandalf mentions living lives of men and still has no time when he heads to find Rohan's cavalry. So 30, years old? If you say the life of a man is years each. So Gandalf is about 18, years old. Gandalf states that he has walked the earth for ages of men. Then Gandalf must have walked the earth foe close 25k years. He is years old. He says himself he has walked this earth " lives of men," according to Tolkien, the average life span of a man is 70 years.
