"All That We Are,



We Owe"



Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We owe our very existence to God, 



Who gave us life and breath. 


For in God we live and move and 


have our being


Acts 17:28 

One of the most important realities of life 


is knowing to Whom we belong.


Our relationship with God is our 


greatest pursuit and the most supremely


satisfying treasure for the soul.

We understand the uneasiness


associated with speaking out 


about the beauty of knowing 


God, but we also understand the detriments of not 


talking about the rewards at all. We do ourselves 


and this hurting world, that's in critical need, a 


great disservice if we resist or neglect to make 


an effort to share, to the best of our ability, the 


Good News of what we have observed through 


blessings and life lessons, what we have come


to understand about God's love and plan for our


lives, and our experiences of discovering real


contentment in knowing God personally. 


If people continually hear only about what is 


wrong, they may cease to notice all that is good. 


Over and over again Scripture points us to share


God with others. God's grace and existence is


not only for us to claim... it is for us to proclaim. 


Even if God never did another good thing in our 


lives, we could spend the rest of our lives... 


glorifying and praising God for what He has 


already done.



Necessity is laid upon us.


"We cannot help speaking about what we


have seen and heard."


Acts 4:20


This commentary was not written in an effort, by any means, to place or present

 ourselves as the experts or as flawless individuals without faults or failures. We 

realize we are flawed and imperfect. 


God delights intaking what the eyes of the world may see as unaccomplished, 

unskilled, unimportant and inexperienced to do extraordinary thins. 


We know we have much more to learn, this is why, with great intentionality... 

we humbly remain teachable spirits and usable channels for greater works.

We will do our best to work toward God's purposes and getting things right. 

According to Scripture, before anything was created...

God existed and is Eternal, beyond time and space, 

without beginning or end, from everlasting to everlasting. 

God is all-existence. 


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


God is the center of everything that exists. 


God is infinite, Self-existing, 


and without origin. 

God is the uncreated Creator, 


the Giver and Author of life 


and breath.


God is the Creator and the One Who created 


all that we can see. All of creation belongs


 to God. 


The soul of every living thing is in the hand 


of God, and the breath of all mankind. 


Job 12:10



So what was “before” creation?


Before time began there was only eternity. Before 


creation, God was existing from everlasting to 


everlasting. Before earth and time began, God 


existed. There was not a time when God did not 


exist. 


God is the Creator. Before time and space and matter 


were brought into being, before the universe came 


into existence… there was only God. God already 


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



God created time. There was no time "before" 


God created. Time only began with His creation of 


the universe. Before creation, there was God, the 


timeless, eternal self-existent One, existing in eternity.


According to the Scriptures, God had no beginning! 


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


not a single thing caused it to exist because the


 "First cause is eternal." 



God is the uncaused "First Cause."

God has neither a beginning or end. 


God is without beginning of days, or end of 


life, or change of time. God is outside of time.


 God is uncreated and is eternal in His being.


God always existed and always will exist.


God was never made because God 


is infinite and eternal in His nature.




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.


"All things were made through Him, 


and without Him nothing was made 


that has been made."


John 1:3



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


"... God is Spirit; and those who worship God 


must worship in Spirit and truth." 


John 4:24


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. 


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 invisible qualities of the 


universe could not have come into existence on its 


own. The only reasonable explanation for such 


magnitude, majesty, and precision is the divine 


intelligence and power of God.


God is the uncaused... nothing caused God. 


God, the Creator of everything, is 


self-existent and eternal. God has always 


existed. God is the cause of everything that 


exists and all things necessary for the 


continuance of our existence. 



The very first verse of the Bible opens not 


with a proof of God's existence, but with a 


pronouncement 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. Creation bears the 


stamp of God's Omnipotence and Divinity.



We learn right away that God created and 


established everything!


God is the "First cause" that 


brought the universe into 


existence. 



God has no beginning, 


but the universe does.

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 


God.


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


 power.


 

“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... 


simultaneously!


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 


Omnipresent.


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 


presence. 


There is no place where God is not. 


God is the infinite Creator, Designer and Sustainer

of the universe.

God is Eternal Spirit, 


meaning... 


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 


trustworthy. 


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


awe-inspiring. 



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 


prejudice. 



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 


actuality.

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 


future. 


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.

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 

unfathomable. 

God possesses unknowable attributes beyond 


human understanding. God's invisible attributes, 


His eternal power and divine nature is beyond 


human logic, reason, imagination and 


comprehension.


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 


“good.” 



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 


humanity. 

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 

better.


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 


Spirit. 



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.

 All Mighty, Supreme and Infinite in power, 


Absolute, unlimited, present everywhere at the

By God all things were created, in heaven

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 


Supplier.

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 


women.



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 


boundless. 



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 


Omnipresent.


"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 


perception.


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 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. 



"God alone 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 knowledge is limitless and can never be exhausted.

God is the Solution to any problems or concerns we 

could ever have.

When God speaks...

 it shall be done.

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 

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. 

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...



Praise.
