God's essence and perfections 

are infinite and beyond total 

human comprehension.

In terms of exhaustively defining God, we simply cannot. 

God cannot be completely defined. It is impossible to

 adequately and completely define 

God, Who is Infinite Spirit. 

How can the finite define 

the infinite?  

There is no way for man to make a statement that

encompasses everything that God is. Such a 

statement, would confine God; it would limit God, 

and God would cease to be God. 

As a way of articulating Who God is, we can only 

describe God in light of everything we have come 

to understand about God.

One thing is certain, without a doubt or hesitation: the

more we learn about God... the more we would like to

learn about God.

Necessity is laid upon us.

"We cannot help speaking about what 

we have seen and heard."

Acts 4:20

This commentary was not produced as an attempt 

to present ourselves as experts or flawless

 humans who are free of errors and failures. 

We are undeniably aware of our shortcomings. 

We recognize that we still have much more to 

learn, which is why... we humbly remain teachable

 spirits and useable channels for greater works.

We shall do everything we can to further 

God's purposes and correct our errors.

Far too many individuals nowadays devote little

 to no time at all reflecting on God's personal 

perfections. Surprisingly, some who regularly 

read the Scriptures are unaware of God's 

awe-inspiring magnificence.

Many individuals are allowing the world's chaos,

 ideological dysfunctions, and divisive issues

to dominate their lives. Some have abandoned 

God's glory in favor of profound divides and

 other things produced and altered by man's 

hardened hearts and corruptible hands.

We were created to know and revere God's 

majesty beyond all else.

In today's culture, there is a pervasive lack of 

reverence for God. Our society characterizes

 God as "Love," but we must remember that

God was also identified as "Holy" long before

His loving nature was revealed in the Scriptures. 

"The heavens reveal God's magnificence." 

Psalm 19:1

God is why everything in the universe exists.

"The Lord God Almighty, who was, is, and is to 

come, is holy, holy, holy." 

Revelations 4:8

God is termed Holy more than any other quality

 in the Bible. The most common epithet 

connected to God's name is "Holy," and 

recognizing His Holiness leads to reverential

fear or reverence for God.

We owe our very existence to God, for God

gave us life and breath. Our Creator is God and 

all of creation is awe-inspiring and wondrous. 

God created the universe with great precision 

and power.

So, what existed before creation?

People of all ages and stages have

 speculated about God's beginnings

 and how He came to be. Simply,

plainly, directly, without exception 

or doubt, God was the only entity 

that existed "Before" Creation.

Psalm 90:1-2 

You have been our dwelling 

place in all generations. 

The "Law of Cause and Effect" 

is one of nature's most powerful laws. It is 

stated that everything occurs as a result 

of something.

So, what was the catalyst 

for creation?

Only existing life has the potential to give 

birth to new life. Life can only begin from 

living things, not from spiritless, lifeless 


God does not need a cause.

God has eternal life in Himself. God has 

existed from all of eternity. Only the 

physical world has been shown to 

have cause and effect relationship.

God is eternal Spirit. God is 

the ultimate uncaused cause.

God is all-knowing and all-present. God is

 timeless and spaceless. God is over all, 

through all, and in all.

So, where does God originate?

 Where was God and what was He doing before

 the beginning of time as we know it? 

Was He created, or did He arrive out of nowhere?

Only God could declare, "I Am," before eternity, 

before time. We know from the entire book of 

Revelation that there is only one God, the one 

and only God Who inhabited eternity before time.

According to the Scriptures, God had no beginning! 

The "First cause" had no beginning... that is, 

God was created by no one because the 

"First cause" is everlasting. Not a single thing 

caused God to exist because the

 "First cause is eternal." 

God is the ultimate uncaused 

"First Cause."

According to Scripture, before anything was 

created...beyond time and space... 

God existed in eternity.

God will never cease to exist. God is always 

existing in eternity past, present, and eternity 

future. God was, is, and will always exist from 

everlasting to everlasting. 

God has no beginning and no end. God is the 

Originator of time, something else that has no

beginning and no end. 

Psalm 90:2 says, “From forever in the past to 

forever in the future, You are God.” 

The eternity of God concerns His existence 

beyond time. 

Drawing on verses such as Psalm 90:2, 

"God has no beginning, end, or succession of 

moments in His own being, and He sees all time

 equally distinctly; yet, God sees events in time and

 acts in time."

God is uncreated and eternal in His being. 

God is timeless, eternal, self-existent, One Who 

existed in eternity. God is all existence. God has

 existed for all eternity. God always existed and 

always will exist. God is the One Who always is, 

always has been, and will forever be. God is our

"Everlasting Father," our eternal God, Whose 

existence has neither a commencement or a period

 with time. This means, God already existed prior

 to the creation of time, space, and, matter.

God is infinite, Self-existing, and without origin. 

God was never created because God is infinite 

and eternal in His nature. God is eternal, outside 

of time, from everlasting to everlasting, without 

beginning of days or end of life. 

God is timeless. 

Scripture reveals that God transcends time. 

God is above and outside the sphere of time, 

as we know it. God was before all time and 

all worlds. God's existence extends endlessly

 in the past and in the future, and God sees

 all of eternity's past and eternity's future. 

Time is actually a created entity. 

The first verse of the Bible reads: 

In the beginning God created the heavens

 and the earth” 

Genesis 1:1

God is the Creator of time.

“In the beginning . . .” is when time began!

There was no time before time was created!

Time began when God created the universe.

God created time as a limited part of His

creation for accommodating the workings 

of His purpose.

You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,

“and My servant whom I have chosen,

so that You may know and believe Me

and understand that I am He. Before Me 

no god was formed, nor will there be one 

after Me.

Isaiah 43:10

There was no "Before" God. God existed in

eternity prior to the creation of time, space,

 and matter. God existed before the universe 

and time began. There was not a time when 

God did not exist. Before time, space, and 

matter were established, before the

universe was born... there was only God. 

"All things were made through Him, 

and without Him nothing was made 

that has been made."

John 1:3

"In the beginning, there was God." There was 

no heaven, earth, or universe. God existed

from everlasting to everlasting before creation.

Time was created with the universe by God. 

There was no time "Before" God created. God is 

timeless truth. God's creation of the universe 

was the commencement of time. “In the 

beginning...” is when time began! Before 

creation, there was God, the timeless, eternal, 

self-existent One Who existed in eternity.

There was a period, if you may call it that, when 

God, in the oneness of His nature resided entirely

alone. There was nothing but eternity before time 


God gained nothing by creating 

mankind at the time He did. 

God's free will was not constrained, obligated, 

or required to create. That He decided to do so 

was solely a sovereign act on His behalf, 

caused by nothing external to Himself and 

determined by nothing but His own will.

God is not an impersonal or random energy

 that influences the world. God is not 

some vague, pompous, pretentious 

"Man-in-the-sky" concept. Clearly, God 

created and cares for all of creation, beneath 

the earth, and in the heavens above; yet, God 

exists above and independent from them all.

John 4:24

Scripture teaches that we can have an honest

and personal understanding of God, but this does

 not imply we will ever completely comprehend 

God. God can never be fully known. God will 

always be a mystery to our finite understanding.

It is impossible for the finite to sufficiently 

or totally define God because...

God is Spirit...

Infinite Spirit!

God is the original Life Giver. 

God is the uncreated Creator of time, space, 

and matter. God is the Giver and Author of 

Life and Breath. God is the Source of all life... 

the ideal and timely Provider of all we could

possibly want or need.

God gave us life and breath, and we


owe our whole existence to Him.

We may know that there is a God because

 natural reason informs us that the universe

 we see around us could only have been created

 by a self-existing Being Who is all-knowing,

all-powerful and pure goodness. 

We can know God not just through natural

 reason, but also through supernatural revelation — 

that is, by the truths revealed to us by God 

Himself in the Scriptures. 

The more we know about God... the more we 

would like to know about God.

All scripture is beneficial for teaching, rebuking,

 correcting, and instructing in righteousness

because it was inspired by God. 

Titus 3:16

When we say God the Supreme,

 we believe God is self-existent,

the Ultimate, Eternally Holy

Presence Who exists above 

and beyond all others.

When we state that God is self-existent, we are

 referring to the fact that God is not beholden

 to anyone. God's existence is not dependent 

on anything or anyone else.

Knowing to Whom we belong 

is the most important fact in

life. Everything originates with 

God, flows through God, and 

returns to God.

In God... everything within 

creation exists.

All things are upheld by God's mighty power 

(Hebrews 1:3), yet God is upheld by Himself 


In God we live and move and have our being

Acts 17:28

Heaven's greatest Treasure is God's only begotten 

Son, and God gave His only begotten Son to us 

with profound love. 

To speak about love means to speak about God. 

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, 

and God in them. 

I John, 4, 16

God's love is indescribable. While we 

should and must talk honestly about 

God's love, we will never be able to 

comprehend it because it is divine love, 

which is as distinct from our love as 

His being is from ours.

One of the most significant divine Names

for glorifying God is lover of mankind.


God is incomprehensible to humans. We 

will never be able to fully define God. We 

are unable to provide a complete picture of 

God. "God lives in unapproachable light," 

according to the Scriptures.

When we say that God is all-knowing, 

we understand that God is aware of 

everything that has happened, is 

happening, and will happen in the 

future, even our most private thoughts, 

words, and acts.

When we say God is all-present, we imply 

that God is present in all places.

Where can we escape from God's spirit?

 or where can we hide from God's gaze? 

138:7 (Psalm)

God is exceedingly lovely in Himself,

 and everything good we have originates 

from God's fatherly love.

There is nothing that can compare to God. 

God is all-powerful. God has the ability to 

do anything. 

God is all-knowing, all-holy, all-merciful, 

and all-just. In all of God's ways, God is 

righteous, and God's handiwork is

 immaculate. 144:17 (Psalm)

With God, nothing will 

be impossible. 

Luke 1:37

God is our greatest 


God is unchangeable, boundless, and eternal. 

All wisdom, power, holiness, justice, and 

goodness are part of God's essence. 


Everyone, whether good or evil, is under 

God's watchful care. God's eyes are all about

us, watching over both the good and the bad. 

Proverbs 15:3 

God not only desires to watch over us, 

but He also desires to teach us and 

counsel us on what we should do.

When we say that God is endlessly perfect,

 we mean that God is flawless in every way, 

without limits. God is eternally perfect. 

The attributes of God, which are revealed

 in the Scriptures, demonstrate how 

complete God is as our benevolent God.

 God's characteristics demonstrate the 

completeness of His divine being. God's 

perfections include being everlasting, 

all-good, all-knowing, all-present, and 


When we say God is everlasting, we mean

 that God has always been, will always be, 

and will always be the same. 

God declares, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, 

the beginning and the end." 

Revelation 1:8

God's boundless loving kindness, light, truth, 

justice, and grace are evident to us. God's

 eternal holiness, righteousness, power, and 

pure goodness are all evident to us. Divine 

Providence refers to God's loving care for us.

Cast all of your worries on Him,

 for He is concerned about you. 

I Peter 5:7; I Peter 5:8; I Peter 5:9

God's divine power has granted to us all things

 that pertain to life and godliness, through the

 knowledge of God Who called us to His own

 glory and excellence, by which He has granted 

to us His precious and very great promises, so 

that through them we may escape from the 

corruption that is in the world because of 

passion, and become partakers of the divine


2 Peter 1:3-4

Knowing God, being loved

by God, and becoming more 

Christlike is the goal of our

 soul's mission. 

According to Scripture, God is personally 

involved in the comings and goings of 

mankind and genuinely loves us and is

 completely individual, personal, caring, 

powerful, and willing to help us all.  

God created love and has the ability to 

flood our hearts with His unending love.

God desires to have a relationship with us 

and freely offers us the gift of His 

everlasting love.

When we know God loves us, it becomes 

reasonable, doable, feasible, and achievable 

to obey God and trust God with the outcome

 of things.

Scripture reminds us: No, in all these things 

we are more than conquerors through Him 

Who loved us. For I am convinced that neither

 death nor life, neither angels nor demons, 

neither the present nor the future, nor any 

powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything 

else in all creation, will be able to separate us 

from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus 

our Lord.

Romans 8:37-39

"All That We Are,

We Owe"

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our greatest quest and the most supremely rewarding

 treasure for the soul is our relationship with God.

"... God is Spirit, and all who worship God 

must do so in Spirit and in Truth."

John 4:24

Creation itself gives evidence that a Creator exists. 

Creation also demands that its Creator has 

always existed.

The invisible, incomprehensible essence, and 

unfathomable wisdom of God's existence is 

conspicuous throughout the infinite complexity, 

 amazing diversity, and splendor of creation. 

God's creation has left all sorts of visible evidence,

 provided by the universe, that bears witness and 

points right back to the reality of God. 

When we ponder the evidence throughout this 

vast universe... it establishes that divine energy... 

beyond human comprehension produced it.  Clearly, 

the created order and the universe's invisible 

attributes could not have arisen on their own. The

 divine knowledge and power of God are the only 

logical explanations for such enormity, grandeur, 

and precision.

God is the uncaused... nothing caused God.


God is the self-existent and eternal Creator of 

all things. God has always been present. God

 is the Source, the Center, the Creator of all that

 exists and all that is necessary for our continued 


The very first verse of the Bible does not begin 

with a demonstration of God's existence, but 

rather with a declaration of God's works.

"In the beginning, God created 

the heavens and the earth."

Genesis 1:1

The Scriptures also proclaims, 

"All things came into being through God,

 and apart from God not even one thing came

 into being that has come into being."

John 1:3

Since the creation of the world, God's 

invisible attributes, His handiwork, His 

eternal power and divine nature have been 

clearly seen through what God created. 

God's Omnipotence and Divinity are imprinted 

on Creation. We quickly discover that God 

created and established everything!

God is the "First Cause" of the universe's

 existence. The universe, not God, has a 


In the beginning, the earth was formless, void and 

empty. There was a formless mass of darkness 

upon the surface of the desolate deep waters. The 

Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 

Then God said, "Let there be light," 

and there was light."

In darkness, without any substance and order,

God caused the universe to exist. God spoke

this whole universe, life in all of its enormous 

variety, into existence, from nothing. 

For He spake, and it was done; 

He commanded, and it stood fast.”

Psalm 33:9

In his epistle to the Romans, the apostle Paul 

insists that God’s “Eternal power and divine 

nature” are clearly perceived from the created

 order itself. 

According to the Scriptures:

God established light and darkness. 

Only God can take light and darkness to its home. 

Only God can command the morning to appear and

 cause the dawn to rise in the east.

God made daylight spread to the ends of the earth 

and robed it in brilliant colors. God set the shorelines

 of the world by perpetual decrees, so that the oceans, 

though they toss and roar, can never pass those bounds.

God created everything visible and invisible, and 

nothing was created except through God.  

The beautiful statement from, Psalm 19 considers the

 glory of God in the many different aspects of creation. 

It moves to reflect upon the beauty, splendor and majesty 

of its Creator. 

Considering the immensity, the incomprehensible 

and endless creativity, the complexity and depths of 

mystery, the magnificent intricacies, the intelligence, 

the amazing diversity of life, the majesty and power

 of God throughout creation... protecting, providing, 

pervading and sustaining all of creation; to the 

contraryits humbling to know that our place in this 

vast universe is important to God. There is nothing 

about fragile human beings, so small compared to 

the universe, that God does not know. 

 God's intelligent design, great power and mighty 

strength, created this vast universe in all of its 

magnitude and creative details. God is infinitely 

exalted above all creation, but... be that as it may, 

God loves us, is concerned and involved in the 

minuscule details of our lives and makes it clear, 

in the Scriptures, that human beings are very 

important to Him.

As we reflect, in awe, on what we know about God 

and Who God is... we cannot help but experience an

 utterly humbling gratitude. We are forever grateful 

for Who God is and What God is. 

God is not just transcendent; God is also immanent. 

God is naturally present in every aspect of the natural 

order of things, in every manner, time and place... 

still our place in the universe is very significant to 


It is awe-inspiring how God can be infinite and 

intimate. What a blessing it is to know... despite how 

small and sinful we are, God is involved with and 

present within creation. God is universally present 

in person, in understanding, and in power of all times, 

and God, the Father of all, is over all, through all, 

and lives in us all.

"God is not far from any one of us."

Acts 17:27

God’s presence is continuous throughout all of 

creation. God is not limited to any time or space. 

God is everywhere and in every now. 

The heavens declare the glory of God, 

and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. 

Day after day they continue to speak;

night after night they make Him known.

They speak without a sound or word;

their voice is never heard.

Yet their message has gone throughout the

earth, and their words to all the world.

God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.

It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after 

his wedding.

It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run

 the race.

The sun rises at one end of the heavens

and follows its course to the other end.

Nothing can hide from its heat.

The instructions of the Lord are perfect,

reviving the soul.

The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,

making wise the simple.

The commandments of the Lord are right,

bringing joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are clear,

giving insight for living.

Psalm 19

God created, sustains, and upholds everything 

in existence. God created everything that is... 

and will be. God was... what God is today.

When we contemplate all this which God created, 

it brings to mind Psalm 8:3-4: 

“When I consider your heavens, the work of your 

fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have 

set in place, what is man that you are mindful of

 him, the son of man that you care for him?" 

 Deuteronomy 32:4, shows us that:

“God's work is perfect.” 

He is the Rock; His deeds are perfect. 

Everything He does is just and fair. He is 

a faithful God who does no wrong; how just

 and upright He is!

In 1 Corinthians 14:33 Paul tells us that: 

“God is not the author of confusion.” 

For God is not a God of disorder but of peace,

as in all the meetings of God’s holy people.

In 1 John 1:5 John reveals that:


This is the message we heard from Jesus and 

now declare to you:

“God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”

God Himself declares that He is the eternal Creator.  

This is reiterated by the Apostle John and 

by Jesus of Nazareth, Son of God and the 

brotherhood of man:

You laid the foundation of the earth,

and the heavens are the work of Your hands.

They will perish, but You will remain;

they will all wear out like a garment.

You will change them like a robe, and they 

will pass away, but You are the same, and 

Your years have no end.

Psalm 102:25-27

Perfection and a complete lack of confusion 

and darkness define God and everything that 

God directly creates.

The principles of the laws of nature, 

the beginning of time, and the first existence

 of this world all are the result of God, the

 Creator who possesses never-ending 

wisdom and power. 

God and God alone brings out the starry host

 one by one. 

🤔 Think about it, 

we inhabit a galaxy comprised of billions of stars, 

and we can only see a fraction of them; yet, 

according to Psalms 147:4; and Isaiah 40:26, 

God has given each one a name.

God is the Infinite intelligence that guides the 

moon and the stars.

The book of Genesis tells us, before time, 

space and matter were brought into being, 

before the universe came into existence… 

there was only God.

God is and has always been and will be 

forever and ever. 

The Psalmist seeks to place this concept, in 

Psalm 90:2, that is inconceivable to the mind 

of man into perspective, with the words... 

"from everlasting to everlasting You are God."

Before the mountains were born or You 

brought forth the earth and the world,

 from everlasting to everlasting 

You are God.

Psalm 90:2

God possesses attributes that

 we can know. 

We are able to cite God's attributes as 

God has revealed to us... as found in 

the Scriptures.

When we talk about the attributes of God, we 

are trying to answer questions like, Who is God, 

What is God like, and What kind of God is He?

Attributes of God are truths about Him. 

God makes Himself known in a variety 

of ways, yet, it is impossible for us, as 

limited beings, to fully comprehend Who 

God is. 

What God would have us to know about 

Himself has been revealed in His Word and 

in His creation. 

God is the Creator and life Giver. 

All of life comes from God. 

God, in His loving-kindness, gives life to everything.

From everlasting to everlasting God is God.

God is Supreme Perfection, Sustainer and Ruler 

of the universe and all things in it. God is Father 

of all mankind, the Intelligent Guide of all, divine 

intelligence and power, the entirety of the universe. 

God is Reality itself. God is beyond compare. 

God is unsurpassed. God is Sovereign, all-powerful, 

all-knowing, and without equal. God exists outside

 the realm of time and space and is clearly independent 

from His creation. 

God does not suppress the truth about Himself. 

God reveals more truth when we respond rightly,

 in faith, to what He has already revealed. 

The whole Bible is a record of God revealing 

Himself to us. He gives us enough information 

without forcing it upon us. God wants a willing 

response of faith from us; He doesn’t manipulate 

us into a relationship against our will.

God reveals truth to those who humbly seek truth. 

God’s goal is not “to satisfy our curiosity, but to

change us according to His will. Thus, obedience

is the purpose of God’s revelation to us. 

We see this principle in Jesus’ ministry. When

 the Jewish leaders began actively rejecting and

resisting Jesus, He began preaching in parables

 so that only those who were really seeking the

 truth would find it in what Jesus was teaching. 

As He would famously say, 

“Whoever has ears, 

let them hear.” 

Matthew 13:9

In other words, only those who were actively 

listening for and seeking the truth would find it.

The tension we experience in the unknown leads

 us to remain dependent upon God, as well as to

 remain humble in our own finite knowledge.

 Humility is at the heart of being like Christ... 

which, by the way, is the main purpose God has

 for our lives.

If we could understand everything there is to know 

about God... then God would cease to be God to us.

If we had all the answers, we would have no need 

to learn from others. The desire to learn more and 

seek truth leads us to connect with other kindreds. 

It prompts great discussions, and those conversations 

become the environment in which something even 

more important than knowledge can flourish. 

It is "Love" that strengthens and edifies people. 

1 Corinthians 8:1

When God does not reveal it, let us consider it not our 

season to know it. God’s Word tells us that... 

God's abounding love withholds no good thing

 from those who walk uprightly. 

Psalm 84:11

God is completely self-sufficient, 

having within Himself the sufficient 

reason for His own existence. 

God exists in and of Himself, from Himself. 

God was created by no one and has always 

existed. God contains within Himself the cause 

of Himself. 

God is the uncaused, uncreated Creator depending 

on no other being for the source of His existence. 

God never had a beginning and will never have 

an end.

God and God alone is self-sufficient. 

God is absolute independence and self-existence.

 God is not served by human hands. God 

is not subject to anything outside of Himself. 

God exists independent of the world.

God is greater than any human we would 

consider to be great. God created everything

 and He does not need the created. 

When we give something to God... we give God 

only what He has first given us. God has no needs. 

God has endless resources and unimaginable



“God Who made the world and everything in it, 

being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live 

in temples made by man, nor is He served by 

human hands, as though He needed anything,

 since He himself gives to all mankind life 

and breath and everything.” 

Acts 17:24-25

The longing for God resides within each of 

our hearts. Within all of humanity exists a 

strong desire to know their Creator, even if 

they are not professed believers in God.

As we, personally, encounter God's tender, personal,

and incomprehensible way, as a totally loving Father,

we come to realize voids being filled with all the love we 

could ever need.

In light of God's unfathomable greatness... 

those of us who seek to know God... should be

profoundly humbled and unafraid to explore and

 learn more.

In the process we will come to realize... the more

 we learn about God... the more we have to learn...

and the more we desire to seek God. 

God makes Himself known to the humble heart 

that longs to know Him.

For ever since the creation of the world God's

 invisible attributes, His eternal power and 

divine nature, have been clearly seen, being 

understood through His workmanship (all 

His creation, the wonderful things that He

 has made), so that they (who fail to believe

 and trust in Him) are without excuse and 

without defense. 

Romans 1:20

So, according to Romans 1:20, 

God's invisible attributes, namely, His eternal

 power and divine nature, have been clearly 

perceived, ever since the creation of the world, 

in the things that have been made.

God is not an old man in the sky.

God is not distant or hidden from us. 

God is Eternal Spirit.

God is high above all nations and His eyes 

are in every place. God is watching the evil

and the good, and near to the broken-hearted.

The power of God is ever-present and is 

within the innermost heart of all. 

God is Eternal Spirit.

The kingdom is within us. 

God resides within us all.

Luke 17:21

The power of God is ever-present 

and is within the innermost

 heart of all. 

God is both transcendent and immanent.

We are not alone. 

God is near, and God can be known.

God is Infinite, Incomprehensible, knowable, 

and Intimately aware of all of creation... 


God pervades and sustains the universe; yet,

 He has intimate knowledge of our soul, emotions,

 and thoughts.

God is everywhere, is all-knowing, and is 

all powerful. God is without any limits. God is 

endless, vast, immeasurable, and universally 


We are never far from God's presence.

We are inseparable from God; God is 

everywhere present... closer than 

the air we breathe.

God is all-knowing, all-wise and all-powerful. 

God is able to take those things that Satan tried 

to use to destroy us and turns it so that it actually 

works for our good, instead. Even in the midst 

of any disturbance in the atmosphere, God is 

perfectly able to bless us with His amazing 

and timely gifts of grace. 

Jesus teaches that God knows and cares 

about our needs... and He will give us peace, 

which surpasses all understanding. 

God knows everything. 

God has personal knowledge of each of us. 

All of our thoughts, words, secrets, and deeds 

are an open book before God. Nothing is 

hidden from God. God knows our hearts. 

Our hearts are laid bare before God. 

We cannot flee from God's all seeing eye nor

experience anything that God is not aware of.

God knows all about our secret sins; yet, God 

is forgiving and will forgive us from the moment 

we begin a loving, intimate relationship with Him.

From eternity past to eternity future, everything

we think, do and say... God knows those things. 

God has personal knowledge of each of us 

and all things.

God knew us before the time of our 

conception. Before we were formed in our

 mother's womb, God knew us. 

God knows each and every one of us intimately.

God is all knowing, all-powerful, all-loving. The 

most minutest details about each of us are known

completely... and are on full display before God. 

God's knowledge of us is so vast that there is

 nothing we can do or imagine that God does 

not already know about. God knows all and sees 

all. God knows all our days... their beginning, 

their number, and their end.  

God has known every subtle intricacy of our 

entire existence. God even knows the number of 

hairs on our heads. God knows us better than we 

know ourselves. There is nothing about us that 

God does not know. 

God is always near everything and everyone. 

There is no language or speech where our 

voices are not heard or understood by God.

God is high above all nations and His eyes are

in every place. God is watching the evil and the

 good, and near to the broken-hearted.

We are never far from God's 


There is no place where God is not. 

God is the infinite Creator, Designer and Sustainer

of the universe.

God is Eternal Spirit, 


God has no beginning and will have no end.


God has no limitations. God is above and 

before all of the past, present, and future.

God is the Greatest Being conceivable and is

 not dependent on human beings. Unlike humans,

 who change from one day to the next, God is 

immutable and unchanging in His love and 

justice. This means, that even in the midst of 

life's storms, God's nature is love, and God's 

love is perfect, Holy, and unchanging.

When I consider Your heavens, the work 

of Your fingers, the moon and the stars,

which You have set in place, what is mankind 

that You are mindful of them, human beings 

that You care for them?

You have made them a little lower than 

the angels and crowned them with glory and

 honor. You made them rulers over the works

 of Your hands; You put everything under their

feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals 

of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish

 in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your Name

 in all the earth!

Psalm 8:3-9

God is majestic, perfectly good, 

faithful, incomparably righteous, 

just and upright.

God is the Highest Authority, and all things 

are under God's control. God is sovereign

over all men.

God is our Supreme strength. 

"God is our refuge and strength."

Almighty God is unconquerable. God is 

incapable of being vanquished, subdued, 

or defeated. God cannot be overcome.

God is trustworthy, dependable, and reliable. 

God is always true to His word. 

God is our Promise-Keeper. 

God is absolutely reliable and 


Every promise God makes to us can be fully 

counted on. 

God is worthy of our trust.

God is Master of the wind 

and waves.

God is our Chain-breaker, Way-maker, and the 

Source of all Goodness. God is King, Master, 

Judge, Shepherd, Light, and Father. 

God is the Father of all mankind, the Intelligent

 Guide of all, the entirety of the universe. 

God is reality itself. 

God is boundless, unparalleled, incomparable, matchless,

 unequalled, Absolute, unrivaled, excellence, the greatest. 

God is Divine Nature.

God is the same, yesterday, today,


and forevermore.

God is worthy to be praised!

God is exceedingly and abundantly


God is able to do far beyond all 

that we ask or imagine.

The power of God is ever-present

and is within the innermost heart

of all. 

God is God of all flesh, Father of mercies, 

and God of all comfort. God is full of compassion. 

It is part of God's nature, and one of His attributes

 that makes Him Who He is. 

God is unsurpassed... beyond compare. God is 

subject to nothing and answers to no one. God

 is Omniscient and all-wise. 

God has complete and unlimited infinite  

knowledge, awareness, and understanding. 

God is all-knowing. 

God always does what is right and fair, and

 God does it consistently without partiality or 


God is faithful to His promises.

God is allness. God is all-inclusive... 

everywhere present throughout His universe.

God's allness leaves no space or location

 where anything unlike God or opposite

 to His presence can appear as fact or 


God is King and Lord over all.

God is Ever Present. God is Truth. God is immutable.

God is Pure Spirit. God is Indescribable. God is our 

Shepherd. God is Forgiving. God is always Giving.

 God is Worthy. God is Awesome. God is Mighty. 

God is our Rock of Ages. God is our Strong Tower. 

God is our Hiding place. God is our Refuge. God is our 

Father and Creator. God is Peace. God is our Great 

Physician and Healer. God is our Comforter. God is our 

Master. God is our Teacher, God is Rich in Mercy. God is 

our all Sufficiency. God is dwelling within us. God is our 

sure Foundation. God is No Respecter of persons. God is 

Almighty. God is infinitely exalted above and beyond all 

creation. Our Sovereign God is All-knowing, All-wise, 

and All-powerful. God is aware of the past, present, and 


God's knowledge is total. 

God is the one and only Ultimate 

and necessary Being.

It is imperative to understand that mankind, on 

our own, are incapable of truly knowing God because

 of our sinfulness. We will perish and suffer spiritual death 

eternally, without God. 

Nothing is of greater importance than receiving 

God into our lives, seeking to understand God's truths, 

and embarking upon a special, deep, personal, and 

eternal relationship with God.

We carry the responsibility to live out our faith in 

God. Not only must we read and understand God’s 

Word, we must apply it, and faithfully run with 

patience the race that is set before us, looking to God, 

the Author and Finisher of our faith. 

Hebrews 12:1-3

Jesus Himself placed the greatest importance on...

Loving God with all our heart, with all our soul, 

with all our mind and with all our strength.

God's pure and infinite love is 

within each of us. 

God gives pure love, life, breath, and spirit to 

everyone. All of creation depends on God. 

God pervades and sustains the universe; yet,

 He has intimate knowledge of our soul, 

emotions, and thoughts.

One of God's primary 

attributes is love.

God's character is the very 

personification of love.

God is love.

God's love is very different from the

natural man's love.

God's love permeates His essence


in all He is and all He does.

 Everything God has ever done 

has been out of love.

Love starts with God and ends with God because God is love. 

God loved us enough to die for us.

God’s love for us Is personal.

God is compassionate and loving.

God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son 

into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him.

God’s love should not stop with Him loving us, it should overflow into 

the lives of the people around us.

God’s love grows in us.

God freely offers His love to us.
God's love changes lives.
God's love is everything beautiful.

God loves us as we are, but He also loves us enough to not let us stay 

how we are. 

God wants to see us grow and change for the better. 

God’s love helps us grow and improve.

God’s love is too great to fully understand.

God’s love surrounds ua and keeps us safe.

God will not let us down because His love cannot fail.

We do not deserve God’s love. No one does. But He loves us anyway.

God wants us to be filled with His love.

God loves us and disciplines us to help us learn. He wants to teach us 

valuable lessons. 

God cares about our sadness and hardships. 

He is always there to comfort us with His unfailing love. 

God's faithful love never ends.

God's love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. 

God is the only One Who can love us perfectly. 

Nothing can separate us from God’s love.

God's love is Infinite and unfailing.

God loves us regardless of our station in life.

Each new day is another opportunity to receive God's grace, mercy and 


Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Ephesians 4:32

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

1 Timothy 6:6-7

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.

James 4:16

As it is, you boast in your arrogant schemes. All such boasting is evil.

Philippians 2:3

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart,

 all your soul, all your strength, and all of your mind…”

Luke 10:37 

Thinking rightly about God is of absolute importance

 because a bogus idea about God is idolatry. The 

idolatrous heart assumes and concludes that God is 

other than Who He is.

To fall in love with God means, 

replacing idols and misplaced 

affections with God. 

We are to love God above all else.

God's love is better than the 

best this life can ever be.

We know that God will never 

leave us, fail or abandon us.

Even at our weakest, darkest and worst... 

we can find God. 

God will not abandon His people.

Our Father is the only true God of Scripture, 

and God has no equals. God has no contenders. 

God is matchless. There is no one like God. No 

one can compare to God...God never changes. 

God knows no limitations. God is not limited to the 

dimensional restrictions of created things. God 

is absolutely unrestricted to time and place. 

In Genesis, God reveals Himself as our great 

Creator. He unveils His perfect judgment and

 mighty works. His unlimited power and eternal 

knowledge are shown as God leads and blesses. 

Psalm 90:2 says, “From forever in the past

 to forever in the future, You are God.” 

Great is the Lord, and highly to be

 praised, And His greatness is unsearchable.

Psalm 145:3

There is none like You, O Lord; You are

 great, and great is Your Name in might.

Jeremiah 10:6

The Scriptures are overflowing with 

statements about 

God's greatness! 

God alone is the Most High over all the earth.

There is no one higher than God.

Psalm 83:18

God is the All-Powerful Creator of the universe

The almighty and ever-present power of God created,

 sustains, and governs all of creation. God is our only 

Source of comfort, truth, power and the fulfillment 

of the longings of the heart.

God is God... the King of all ages, the only God, and 

there is none greater. 

The greatness of God and the mind of God 

is beyond our capacity to understand or 

explain exhaustively. 

God's majesty, supreme perfection, and splendor 

far exceeds anything we can comprehend. The 

power, magnificence, and invisible essence of 

God is Infinitely above anything and everything 

we can attempt to discern or express. 

God is unsearchable and 


God possesses unknowable attributes beyond 

human understanding. God's invisible attributes, 

His eternal power and divine nature is beyond 

human logic, reason, imagination and 


The essence of God is Supernatural, 

 and incomprehensible to the human 

mind, for the finite understanding cannot

 be applied to God's infinite mystery. 

God encompasses all: 

God cannot be encompassed.

Yes, we are limited in our understanding of God.


God is the One and only; the Eternal and Absolute.

All that God is and all that God does is 

beyond our finite knowledge. The finite reach 

of our human mind will never comprehend the

 infinite nature of God. God's greatness is beyond

 anything our limited faculties are qualified of 

defining or fathoming. 

We can never fully comprehend God's whole

 being because God is, by nature, Holy, 

which means,

 set apart. 

God has many characteristics and attributes 

which distinguishes Himself from His creation.

The very nature of God is that He is eternal 

and infinite. God existed before time existed.

Based on God's nature and attributes, God's

greatness is in a different category from all of 

His creation.

Unlike God's creation God is not bound by

 the laws of time, space, or matter. Instead 

God is actually the Creator of time, space 

and matter. This, in and of itself puts God

 in a category of His own. 


Genesis 1:1 says: 

In the beginning, God created the heavens 

and the earth. The earth was without form 

and void, and darkness was over the face

 of the deep. And the Spirit of God was

 hovering over the face of the waters. 

And God said, 

“Let there be light,” and there was light.

We read in Genesis, the first book of the 

Bible, that God created everything... light, 

earth, water, air, plants, animals, and humans. 

God created the entire world out of nothing 

and everything that God created, God called 


On the last day of creation; God created man 

and woman. In the beginning, everyone and 

everything was created good. All of it was

 created to reflect the glory of God. This has 

not changed. All of creation is still meant to 

reflect God’s glory.

There are some important facts we can learn

 from Genesis 1:1-3 which are the following:

This passage reveals that God existed before 

anything was ever created.

The Scriptures also reveals that time, space 

and matter began with God. In this passage, 

time is represented by the words 

“In the beginning”, then space is 

“The heavens” and matter is “The earth”.

Who else, but God would have the ability to

 operate and create outside the boundaries or 

parameters of time, space and matter?

God already existed prior to creation of time, 

space and matter. Genesis 1:4-31, also reveals 

that God is the Source of all things as He spoke 

everything into existence. So everything we 

observe in life and the universe has a beginning

 because everything began with God.

God is the entirety of the universe. God is 

reality itself. Everything in creation is subject

 to natural or physical laws of which God is 

the Source of those laws.

God, the Creator of everything that exists, is both 

gloriously incomprehensible and Knowable.

 The nature of God is so vast and complex

 that no human being can fully know everything

 there is to know about God. But life is about

 continually seeking God, learning more about

 God, and enjoying His fellowship. 

You will seek Me and find Me when you 

seek Me with all your heart. 

Jeremiah 29:13

What is more, I consider everything a loss

 because of the surpassing worth of knowing 

Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have 

lost all things. I consider them garbage, that 

I may gain Christ. 

Philippians 3:8

God declares: 

“Let not the wise boast in their wisdom

or the strong boast in their strength or the rich 

boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts 

boast about this: that they have the understanding 

to know Me, that I am God, Who exercises 

kindness, justice, and righteousness on earth. 

For in these things I delight."

Jeremiah 9:23-24

Simply knowing and having an intellectual 

understanding about God is theoretical 

knowledge of a theological sort or speculative

 thought concerning God. This is not adequate

 for life with God. Human beliefs often limit

and misinterpret God's character. 

Intellect is an amazing gift from God, but it can 

become damaged by sinfulness. One can quickly 

become puffed up and have an exalted feeling 

because they have an intellectual understanding 

of the gospel, yet, in spiritual things, they are

 unaware of their shallowness of Who God is 

and knowing God, personally. Many are 

relationally distant from God. They have not 

gotten to the place where God wants them to 

be. There is no spiritual oneness. 

We cheat ourselves if we communicate with 

God only on a surface level.The real blessing

 is growing to know God intimately, more 

deeply. We awaken from a state of Spiritual 

death. We come alive to God by willingly 

surrendering ourselves to God, in grateful

 love. We decrease so that God may increase. 

This opens the floodgates so that we may 

enjoy the blessings of God's faithful love, 

justice, and righteousness.

To come alive to God means... Being 

interested in God, to know Who God is, 

to believe in God, to be close and have 

experiential knowledge of God. 

To be intimately aware of God is a blessing. 

We can be vulnerable with God. We become 

empowered by listening to God, truthfully

 talking to God, intentionally and willingly 

spending quality time uniting in close 

communion with God, getting to know what 

God desires of us, obeying, praying, serving,

praising and witnessing. This means prioritizing 

our relationship with God... as the most important 

factor in our life.

Experiencing Almighty God, personally, 

enriches our lives greatly. Our understanding 

can be purified, transformed, and humbled. 

Ultimately, it is to our benefit, when we can have 

a new perspective on ourselves and God's 

masterful plan. 

To know God is to be troubled by sin. To know

 God is to have God's provision, protection, 

comfort, faithful guidance, and Power of His 

Holy Spirit in our daily lives. 

The most fundamental thing to a believer

 is a living and vital relationship with God. 

When we know God personally... we 

automatically seek Him, and we know that 

intimacy with God has no contenders. 

We truly desire fellowship with God. Some 

things with God are so personal, they can 

only be felt with the heart. No one else 

would ever understand.

A personal relationship with God is the 

most loving, faithfully honest, righteous, 

caring relationship we could ever hope for. 

God is our daily Bread. 

God is a perfect Friend.

When we encounter God, 

we encounter grace and mercy.

When one only has intellectual understanding 

of facts about God, Jesus, and the Bible without

 realizing their need for God.. knowing God 

could seem like an obscure pursuit. This leaves 

the intellectual unfulfilled... realizing emptiness

 and inescapable voids. 

To know God is more than knowing about 

Him, committing Bible verses to memory and

attending church. To know God is to allow

 our facts about God to become our personal

 reality. One can hold knowledge in their heads,

 but God's truth needs to penetrate the heart. 

To know God is to enter into a relationship. It's 

hard to love someone you don't know.

Our society believes the most important 

question to answer is: 

Who are we?

The question is not: Who am I? 

The question is: 

Who is God? 

Knowing Who God is can change our perspective. 

Once we find out who God is, then we can 

understand who we are.

Who is God? 

This is a question many have asked throughout 

history and across cultures. 

It is paramount to understand

 who and Whose we are.

In these uncertain times, there is no better time 

to examine why God is worthy of our praise.

God is unlike anything or anyone we could ever

 know or imagine. God is one of a kind, unique and 

without comparison. 

Even describing God with mere words truly falls 

short of capturing Who God is. Our words simply 

cannot do justice to describour holy God.

God desires that we come to know Him intimately... 

surrendering ourselves, obeying what God has 

commanded, fellowshipping with God, and 

communicating with God in total love, gratefulness, 

and transparency.

In keeping with Scripture, God is interested in 

humanity and has a purpose that applies to all 


We believe it is impossible for the finite to

 adequately and completely define God... because 

Almighty God is Infinite Spirit... not restricted by

 time or space.

The treasury of Scripture teaches that we can 

have an honest and personal knowledge of God, 

but this does not mean we will ever completely

figure God out.

Our human knowledge of God cannot encompass

 the infinite dimensions of His greatness. 

Psalm 145:3 

In order to understand God's love, power, 

knowledge, and other attributes, we are 

constrained to use the same words we use 

with regard to human beings. 

While we can comprehend some attributes 

of God, God's nature is incomprehensible to 

our limited minds. We are incapable of grasping 

the Infinite. 

God transcends the bounds of time and space.

God can never be fully known.

God's greatness is unsearchable.

It has been said, 

"In our limitedness, grasping 

the nature of our limit-less God 

is like holding onto water as it 

rages down a river." 

God will remain God always to our human 

understanding, but He reveals Himself in so many 

ways to those who believe in Him that no matter 

how limited we are in our knowledge... we can 

still have an understanding about Him. 

No human mind can fully understand God, but to 

those who are open to enter into His mystery 

He will reveal Himself enough to give us the 

certitude conviction that He is real.

God will always be an inexplicable mystery

 to our finite and limited understanding.

The Scriptures are clear and certain that 

God is the only Supreme, Infinite, eternally

 self-aware Being, and God is ultimately...

 incomprehensible to us.

God can never be fully explained, 

but we can certainly 

experience God.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, 

neither are your ways My ways,”

declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher

 than the earth, so are My ways higher than 

your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9

The Word of God Is Living and Active. 

The Word is a mysterious and powerful force.

 It refers to the will of God (Galatians 1:4), 

the truth of God (John 17:17)

The Word is eternal. 

 The study of God’s Word is 

paramount to knowing God 


Hebrews 4:12 reminds us, 

“For the Word of God is alive and active. 

Sharper than any double-edged sword,

 it penetrates even to dividing soul and 

spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the

 thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

Prayer is also an important part of knowing

 God better. As we pray, we praise God for 

His character and for what He has done. 

We spend time with God, relying on His

 power and allowing the Spirit to intercede 

for us through groanings that cannot be 

expressed in words. 

Romans 8:26


Also consider that one can get to know God 

better by fellowshipping with other believers

 who are walking with God. 

Those who are diligently seeking, in faith, to 

learn more about God will find Him. 

Proverbs 8:17

Joy is found in giving God the keys to our heart.

Sitting in God's presence revives our soul, gives 

light to our understanding, and overflows our 

hearts with joy, unspeakable.

It's been said that if we read the Word of God

 with faith, then it begins to read us. Nothing 

is hidden from God.

While we can comprehend some attributes 

of God, God possesses unknowable attributes 

beyond human understanding... His infinite 

nature is incomprehensible for our limited 

finite minds. 

God has provided us with a fuller understanding

 of His character through His God-breathed 

revelation to us... His Word. 

God has a way of revealing Himself also 

through nature. Nature has a way of telling us

 how great our God is.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies

 proclaim the work of His hands."

Psalm 19:1.

What we do know about God, we primarily know

through the Bible. God identifies Himself as the 

God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the Old 

Testament (Exodus 3:15; Acts 7:32). He also 

describes himself as, 

“I am.”

The whole Bible "is the story of God's involvement

 with His creation", but highlights verses such as 

Acts 17:28,

For in Him we live and move and have our being.

’ As some poets have said, ‘We are God's offspring.’

The Bible is God's communication to us. It was 

inspired by God Himself. It speaks of God Who has

 been changing and guiding people's lives for thousands 

of years. Scripture speaks of things beyond our seeing. 

God shows His nature and character, His love, His 

justice, forgiveness, truth and faithfulness to us as 

He walks with us through His Word. 

God's Word is God's revelation 

of Himself.

God's Word helps us to know God more deeply 

and intimately. Within the covers of God's Word 

we can discover instructions, guidance, 

solutions and answers to the most profound

 questions and perplexing problems we could 

ever have.  

The Scriptures help us to know God, spend 

time with God, hear from God, pursue God's 

work and God's ways. 

To know God is to know Light, Life, and 

Love in all its fullness and glory.

 God's Word is the most relevant Source that 

answers the call and speaks of things beyond 

our hearing. The best way to know the Father

 is to read about Him. God's Word gives us 

the Master Key to knowing God.

 Among the first in those revelations describes

for us... 

Who God is.

God is spirit.

First, Jesus says, 

“God is spirit, and those who worship Him

 must worship in Spirit and Truth.” 

John 4:24

Holy reflects God's eternal nature.

Holy and Divine reflects Who God is.

We must have Spiritual eyes to "See" 

God, yet we as human beings have difficulty 

attempting to fit an infinite concept into our 

finite minds.

In accordance with Scripture, God does not 

seek to be worshipped in a physical temple or 

through rituals and rules, but in Spirit. 

The things of God are spiritually discerned, 

i.e., spoken by God Who is Spirit to the spirit 

within us.

That is what the Scriptures mean when

 they say,

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,

    and no mind has imagined what God has 

prepared for those who love Him.”

The Spirit searches all things, even the 

deep things of God. For who knows a 

person’s thoughts except their own spirit 

within them? In the same way no one 

knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit 

of God.

 What we have received is not the spirit of the

 world, but the Spirit who is from God, so 

that we may understand what God has freely 

given us. This is what we speak, not in words 

taught us by human wisdom but in words taught 

by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with 

Spirit-taught words. 

The person without the Spirit does not accept

 the things that come from the Spirit of God but

 considers them foolishness, and cannot understand 

them because they are discerned only through the 


The person with the Spirit makes judgments 

about all things, but such a person is not 

subject to merely human judgments. 

“Who has known the mind of God?

    Who knows enough to teach Him?”

1Corinthians 2:9-16.

More of God's attributes

 All Mighty, Supreme and Infinite in power, 

Absolute, unlimited, present everywhere at the

 same time, and the Most High.

God is boundless, unparalleled, incomparable, 

matchless, unequalled, unrivaled, Excellence, 

the Greatest. 

God is Divine Nature.

God is the Ultimate Authority over man and 

all creation. God alone is worthy of our worship.

God is the entirety of the universe.

God is the Creator, Sustainer and Ruler of the

 universe and all things in it. 

By God all things were created, in heaven 

and on earth, visible and invisible.

God is perfect in all His ways in eternity

 past, present, and future.

Holy reflects God's eternal nature.

Holy and Divine reflects Who God is.

The Bible contains around 170 instances where 

God is referred to as the Father. Fathers are

 traditionally the protectors of the family, and

 historically the bread-winners. God is 

proclaiming Himself as our Protector and 


It is clear in the Bible that God chose 

masculine pronouns and responsibilities to 

reveal Himself to us. By using the male titles, 

God made it easier for us to understand Him.

According to our research, the term "Man" 

is used to refer to the whole of humankind... 

both men and women. Men and women are 

only patterned after the image of God-not 

identical replicas. This fact does not require 

God to have a body like a man or a woman. 

Being made in the image of God has 

nothing to do with physical characteristics.

God is never described with sexual 

characteristics in the Scriptures, but He does

 consistently describe Himself in the masculine 

gender. This is in no way meant to minimize 


While God contains all the qualities of both

 male and female genders, He has chosen to 

present Himself with an emphasis on masculine 

qualities of fatherhood, protection, direction, 

strength, etc. Metaphors used to describe Him 

in the Bible include: King, Father, Judge, 

Husband, Master, and the God and Father 

of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

C. S. Lewis, has suggested that gender is far 

deeper than our human distinctions reveal. 

He suggests that God is so masculine that 

we all are feminine in relation to Him.

Even though the term "Him" is frequently 

used when speaking about or referring to God... 

God is Spirit. God is also a living, personal being 

Whom we can know personally and walk in 

personal fellowship with. 

 God chose us to be sons and daughters before 

the foundation of the world. God's extreme pleasure 

and supreme delight is for us to experience, as a

 reality in our lives, His Fatherhood.

The love of God, the Father, is not only to be felt, 

but heard as well. God speaks. God spoke the world 

into existence. God’s voice formed and shaped 

creation. That same voice can form and shape 

our souls.

As we spend time alone in God's presence, let us 

worship God with open and sincere hearts...

allowing the peace of God to rule in our minds and 

hearts. May we submit all we are to God, and may 

God's stillness refresh our souls.  

The Bible says that God is the uncontained One. 

God cannot be contained within the universe. 

1 Kings 8:27

God is limitless in power and ability and is not 

confined, defined or limited to the parameters of 

our imagination.

God is beyond limitations. God is limitless 

in every quality He possesses. We cannot 

confine God or put God in a box. God is 


The Bible says that God is the uncontained One. 

God cannot be contained within the universe. 

1 Kings 8:27

The highest heavens cannot contain God.

God is endless, boundless, immeasurable, 

universally vast, immense, forever, and 

Omnipresent. We can never be out of the 

sight of God.

The fact that no one place can be said to contain

God should help us to better understand that 

there is no one special place that gives people

special access to God.

God cannot be contained.


Nothing can contain or restrain God. God is so 

unlimited in power that time and space cannot 

bind Him or define Him. 

God is endless, boundless, immeasurable, 

universally vast, immense, forever, and 


"With God, all things are possible.” 
Matthew 19:26

In God's infinite wisdom, He has chosen to 

be God of compassion, mercy and love. God 

has willed Himself not to do things that are not 

in accordance with His nature or contrary to 

His Word. 

It is because God either has not, cannot, will not 

do these things, that we can do all things

 through Christ.

 So, for our own edification let us examine

a few of the many restrictions God has 

imposed upon Himself.

We would do well to observe and

 emulate them.

God cannot cease to exist.  

God always was, always is, and 

always will be.

God cannot be second.“Thou shalt have no other gods before 

Me.” Exodus 20:3 

No one is holy like the Lord, For there is none other than You,

nor is there any rock like our God.” 1 Samuel 2:2

God cannot be contained.  The heavens and earth cannot contain 

God. Some may try to explain God with plausible reasons. They are 

limiting the magnificence and greatness of God to their limited 

understanding. Job 11:7-9 reminds us "God is beyond our understanding! 

The number of His years is past finding out."God is Infinite, God is 

immeasurably great, limitless, exceedingly awesomeGod has no 

boundaries in time or space. "Bless the Lord your God from everlasting 

to everlasting." Nehemiah 9:5 

God cannot go unnoticed“The heavens declare the glory of God; 

and the firmaments hows His handy-work.”  Psalm 19:1

God cannot be worshipped too much for Who and What 

He is. We breathe by God's grace. When we consider Who Almighty God 

is... God's greatness, power and holiness... one cannot help but humbly bow 

before God and worship Him. God is worthy of such praise. “… Holy, holy, 

holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” 

Revelation 4:8  Far too many worshipers are equating sincere worship 

with creating an emotional experience... the pursuit of a feeling.

It is not in God’s nature to deceive anyone. 

God cannot become a false god - God does not need to become 

like anyone. False gods might try to imitate God; however, God is God. 

God says “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none 

like Me. A false god is worthless, a work of delusion. Jeremiah 10:14-15

God cannot be mocked. God cannot be ridiculed. He cannot feel 

mocked because God is all knowing and all sufficient and He lacks 

nothing. There is nothing that anyone can say about God that will make

God feel mocked or inadequate. "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; 

for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." Galatians 6-7

God cannot be deceived. Nobody can deceive God, because God 

is all knowing, omniscient and almighty. He is the Alpha and the Omega, 

the Beginning and the End. "Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's 

sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to 

whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:13 

God’s intent and power cannot be stopped. - God will 

accomplish His purpose’ God is absolutely committed and resolute 

about His plan for man. 

God cannot sin. It is not in God’s nature to sin, lie or perform any

kind of wickedness. God is holy, pure and sinless. God is not corrupt 

nor can He be tempted to become corrupt or to sin. His thoughts, His 

motives, His actions are always good and righteous and just. God is 

righteous... sinless in all His ways, including in His nature.

God cannot increase or diminish in knowledge -

God is Omniscient (all knowing).  God fully knows Himself and all things 

actual and possible. “God is fully aware of everything.” “He knows 

all things at once.”

God’s Word cannot be broken. God's Word is pure and sure...

forever. John 10:35 “… the Scriptures cannot be broken.” 

God cannot be silenced. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but My words shall not pass away.”  Matthew 24:35

“For I am the Lord, I do not change." Malachi 3:6 

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8

God cannot be pleased without faith. “But without faith it is 

impossible to please God; for he that comes to God must believe that He is, 

and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6 

God cannot leave work unfinished.- God will complete the 

good work He began, and He will be faithful to complete it. “Being 

confident of this very thing, that He which begun a good work in  you 

will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” – Philippians 1:6

"God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, "

1Corinthians 14:33 God is not confused nor can anybody confuse God. 

God’s word, the Bible does not contradict itself nor can 

God behave in any way that is contradictory to His nature.

God does not have favorites. He loves us the same. Then Peter 

opened his mouth and said: ”In truth I perceive that God shows no 

partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness 

is accepted by Him." Acts 10:34-35

God does not judge anybody unjustly or unfairly. God is 

not unjust. - Hebrews 6:10

God cannot break a promise. I will not break my covenant; I will 

not take back a single word I said. I will not violate my covenant or alter 

the word that went forth from my lips. Psalm 89:34. God keeps His 

promises. He will not break His covenant with us. Leviticus 26:44,

 Jeremiah 14:21.

God will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding 

no one can fathom. Isaiah 40:28

God cannot get tired. “The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator 

of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary…” – Isaiah 40:28 

“He neither slumber nor sleep.” - Psalm 121:4

God cannot be divided.“I and My Father are One.” John 10:30

God cannot be destroyed. - God cannot be thwarted, deceived, 

or overthrown.“Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy 

dominion endureth throughout all generations.”  Psalm 145:13

God cannot be tempted with evil, and He Himself tempts 

no one. James 1:13

God does not cause people to commit sinful acts

God is not the author of wickedness nor does He make 

people commit wicked acts. Numbers 23:19. 

"God is not a man, that He should lie."  God’s truthfulness 

is shown and repeated throughout all of Scripture. If he could lie, then 

He would cease to be a good God, since lying is not worthy of approval. 

When it seems that God isn’t trustworthy or truthful, it’s not God who 

lies, but those of us who misunderstand.

God cannot deny Himself. If we are faithless, God remains 

faithful. 2 Timothy 2:13

God cannot be imperfect.“Be ye therefore perfect, even as

your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48

God cannot be defeated. God has never lost a battle. No one 

can match God’s power and might. There is nobody like God, and 

therefore He has no equal. God is triumphant, and it is not in His 

nature to lose. "Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His 

understanding is infinite." Psalm 147:5

God cannot contradict Himself. God cannot change His 

mind when it comes to issues that are consistent with His very nature 

and His word.

God cannot change" I am the Lord. I do not change." - “For I 

am the Lord, I change not Malachi 3:6 

God cannot be selfish. “He that spareth not His own Son, but 

delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give

 us all things?” Romans 8:32

Cannot leave nor forsake. “I will never leave you, nor forsake

 you." Hebrews 13:5

God cannot forget us. “Can a woman forget her suckling child, 

that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, 

they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” Isaiah 49:15  Knowing 

the nature of God is very important. God will not ignore us if we call

 to Him, and if we have a genuine desire to know Him and have a 

relationship with Him. 

2 Timothy 1:7 - "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but 

of power and of love and of a sound mind."

God cannot make losers.“Now thanks be unto God, which 

always causes us to triumph in Christ.- 2 Corinthians 2:14

God cannot despise a broken and contrite heart. "A 

broken and contrite heart, O God thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:17  

No matter what we have done, we can return to God through repentance 

and His saving grace.

God cannot hate us. God cannot hate His creation. When He 

made all that He created in Genesis, God saw that what He had made 

was good. God loves us even when we are at our very worst. This is 

why He sent His begotten Son Jesus to die for us. Romans 5:8 

eminds us,"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that 

while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 

"God is Love." 1 John 4:7

God’s church cannot be destroyed. “And I say also unto 

thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My church; and

the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” Matthew 16:18

Because God is all powerful (omnipotent) and 

all knowing (omniscient), He is also able to be 

present at all places at all times (omnipresent).

God is Complete, Divine, Mighty, Faultless, 

Majestic, Holy, Glorious in His perfections, in 

control, Awesome in glory, Sovereign, and rich

 in mercy. God is Faithful, Infinite, Self-existent,

 Supreme, Righteous, Compassionate, Just, 

Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient, 

Transcendent, and Immanent. 

God is exceedingly and abundantly awe-inspiring. 

God is beyond compare. God is Supreme 

perfection, Sustainer and Ruler of the universe 

and all things in it.

Everything that God does is intentional, and 

nothing He does is contrary to His perfect being.

God is perfect in all His ways in

eternity past, present, and future.


God is completely good and completely sovereign. 

God is Supreme in power and authority. There is 

absolutely nothing that happens in the universe 

that is outside of God's influence, authority, 

and/or control. 

God's power over creation 

is absolute. 

God controls matter, energy, space, and time at 

will. God is all powerful and all knowing. God 

has knowledge of all things that are possible to 

be known and able to accomplish any possible 

task He wills to do.

According to Scripture, God has no beginning, nor 

will God cease to exist. God's greatness, power, grace, 

holiness, thoughts, ways, justice, wisdom, and God's past, 

present, and future judgments are perfect and beyond our 


God is the Ultimate Authority over 

man and all creation, and God alone 

is worthy of our worship.

May we keep our minds attention

 and our hearts affection 

centered on... 

God and God alone.

Many passages of Scripture affirm God as Eternal. For 

example, Psalm 90:2 notes, "Before the mountains 

were born or You brought forth the whole world, 

from everlasting to everlasting 

You are God." 

Deuteronomy 33:27 refers to -

the Lord as the "Eternal God." 

Romans 1:20 speaks of God's -

"Eternal power and 

Divine nature." 

Ephesians 3:11 speaks of God's - 

"Eternal purpose." 

1Timothy 6:16 notes God's -

"Eternal dominion" or rule. 

We are all dying creatures, and all of our earthly 

pleasures are passing comforts, but God is 

immortal and lives in unapproachable light

Whom no one has seen or can see.

Isaiah 9:6 refers to God as an 

"Everlasting Father." 

Isaiah 26:4 calls Him an 

"Everlasting Rock." 

The Lord Himself is... 

the Rock eternal.

God has all the answers.

God's wisdom is infinite and will never be 

exhausted. God is the answer to any and 

all challenges or troubles we could ever have.

When God speaks...

 it shall be done.

God is Ever Present. God is always with us.

God is the Source of all Truth. God is Infinite,

Unchanging, Unalterable, Steadfast, Absolute.

God is Spirit in its purest form

God is Indescribable. God is our Shepherd. 

God is Merciful. God is always Giving.

 God is Worthy to be praised. God is Awesome. 

God is Holy. God is our Rock of Ages. 

God is our Strong Tower. God is our Hiding place. 

God is our Refuge. God is our Father and Creator. 

God is Peace. God is our Great Physician and 

Healer. God is our Comforter. God is our Master. 

God is our Teacher. God is Rich in Mercy. God is 

More Than Enough. God is dwelling within us. 

God is our Sure Foundation. God is No Respecter

 of persons. God is Almighty. God is infinitely 

exalted above and beyond all creation. Our 

Sovereign God is All-knowing, All-wise, 

and All-powerful. God is aware of the past, 

present, and future. God's knowledge is total. 

God is over all, through all, and in all. God is 

the center of everything that exists. God is

 Self-contained and unbound. 

God is the

 Epicenter of all


The fear of God is an awe and 

reverence of God. It is joined 

with love, trust, a desire to 

serve and worship God, Who 

is holy, just and almighty.

A Reverent Fear of God, is

 the foundation of wisdom. 

It is the wisdom that 

withdraws, escapes, 

abandons and flees from 

evil. Wisdom avoids evil or 

anything that lures us to do 

evil or wickedness. 

A "reverential fear" of God brings us to 

intimate acquaintance with God. It is a 

response to God's greatness, God's power, 

God'holiness and God's mercy. We desire 

to live in harmony with God and honor 

God in all that we do.


A reverential fear of God is foundational to a

 life lived in the absoluteness of God's blessings. 

It is a life that brings our hearts deep fulfillment.

 It teaches us how to communicate with God

rightly... by true worship and submissiveness, 

and how to come to live with God for ever.

Reverential fear” of God, is not a mere‘fear’ 

of God's power, righteous justice and 

judgement, but a wholesome care and

concern of not offending or displeasing God. 

A "reverential fear" 

does not spring from being frightful or 

paralyzed into inaction. Holy fear 

motivates us to act correctly and live in 

a righteous manner... knowing that God 

holds us accountable for our motives, 

thoughts, words and actions.

A reverential fear of God is a

 deep, abiding holy fear. It is a 

state of the mind and heart that 

results in a respectful reverential 

fear and awe of God.

A reverential fear of God is 

breathless adoration, and 

genuine wonder for the majesty

 and holiness of God.

God is perfect in power, love,


 and holiness. 

To glorify God means to give God the

 dignity, honor, respect, praise, and worship 

due Him as the gracious gift He is to us.

Our response to God's greatness 

should be...
