Who is God?

Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. Micah 7:18

Think for a few minutes, Who is God? It is breath taking, when you really think about who God is. We tend to take God for granted, treating Him like He is “one of the guys”. He is not one of the guys but the Great and wonderful God who made YOU. I sometimes wonder how people think. God is not in the “game” business, playing the game of I’ll do this for you God if you answer this prayer, _______ fill in the blank.

He does not do things our way. Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. He knows what is best. He knows the whole story. He is the all knowing God.

It is mind boggling when you think of the great universe and the Great Creator of the universe. Spending a few minutes at lunch time, I came up with a few descriptions of God.

Alpha and Omega
Beginning and End
Great I AM
Not a man
The self existing eternal One
He is never ending
He is never changing
The same yesterday, today and forever
He is always there
Personal God
The Only God

The list goes on and on. God loves me and has done more than I could ever imagine. What can I do for Him?

Fear God
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Ecclesiastes 12:13

Obey God
Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29

Reverence God
Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: Hebrews 12:28

Love God
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. Mark 12:30

Have a blessed day,
