Know Him

I was so encouraged by all the attributes of God that I could find yesterday in just a short period of time while reading the Psalms that I was challenged to look for even more.

I don't know about you but I sometimes fall into the trap of allowing my thinking to be too greatly influenced by this world.  This world sometimes characterizes our God by completely different characteristics - angry, harsh, unfair, etc.  I know I sometimes find myself thinking 'Do they have a point?', especially at times in reading the Old Testament.  And, I question myself, 'Who is God really?'.

But, God wants to be known.  And, there is so much He has told us about Who He Is.  I've read the Psalms hundreds of times, but when I read them with the purpose of understanding God's character, I really have been blown away.

You can read the first part of my list in yesterday's post.  Like I said, it only scratched the surface.  Here is more I found today.  This didn't take hours to compile.  I found all this in a short period of time....about 15 minutes or so.

He Is....

The One Who Established Fairness
The One Who Administers Justice
The One Who Answers
Clothed in Splendor
Enthroned Forever
Slow to Anger
Doer of Miraculous Signs
Abundantly Compassionate
Fair Judge
One Whose Fame Endures to All Generations
Doer of Wonderful Works
God of Hosts
Full of Faithful Love
Establisher of The Earth

"When the earth and all it's inhabitants shake, I am the One who steadies its pillars."  Psalm 75:2

  1. Amen! And to think...one day we'll get to actually see Him, meet Him and live with Him forever. It gives me the chills!:-)
