Who is God to you?

God is our creator, our redeemer, our everything!  We are nothing without Him.  What I want to do here is draw your attention to some of his characteristics that I've found in His word.

God is mercy, grace, compassion

Ps 86 v 15:  But You, O Lord, are a God full of COMPASSION and GRACIOUS, LONG-SUFFERING and adundant in MERCY and TRUTH.


Ps 84 v 11:  The Lord God is a SUN and SHIELD; the Lord will GIVE grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.


Ps 46 v1:  God is our REFUGE and STRENGTH, a very present HELP in trouble.


He is my rock, my strength, my help


Isa 9 v 6(b):  ...And His name will be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE of PEACE.
He is our Saviour, Redeemer


Isa 12 v 2:  Behold, God is my SALVATION, I will trust and not be afraid; for YAH, the Lord, is my STRENGTH and my SONG.  He also has become my SALVATION.


Matt 1 v 23:  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "GOD IS WITH US".


John 1 v 1:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and the WORD was God.


John 4 v 24:  God is SPIRIT, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.


1 Corinth 1 v 9(a):  God is FAITHFUL....
He is my Father, faithful and loving


1 Corinth 8 v 6(a): Yet for us there is only one God, the FATHER.....


Phil 4 v 19:  And my God shall SUPPLY all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.


1 John 4 v 8:  He who does not love does not know God, for God is LOVE.
Without Him I am nothing!

Who is God to you?
What other characteristics have you experienced?

I look forward to hearing from you.

God bless
Tracy

  12. Jesus is protector and provider....that is one way I have been praying lately for women I work with who are misused and don't have godly protection. I love the security in knowing He protects and provides when we can't . Thank you for this reminder to name who the Lord is to us. And yes, you can share a link to my last post...Thank you!
