The character of God

There is simply no one like our God. God is completely perfect and unchangeable in His ways. Be encouraged by these attributes that define the character of God and be assured that whatever circumstance you are facing – God is in control!

Compiled from my latest book ‘Worship God in Spirit & in Truth – A Study Guide.’

God Is Infinite – He is Self-Existing, Without Origin

Psalm 90:2 Before the mountains were born Or before You had given birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are the eternal God.

God Is Immutable – He Never Changes

Malachi 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I do not change but remain faithful to My covenant with you; that is why you, O sons of Jacob, have not come to an end.

God Is Self-Sufficient – He Has No Needs

John 5:26 For just as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent, even so He has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent.

God is Omnipotent – He Is All Powerful

Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him that is, by His activity and for Him.

God Is Omniscient – He Is All-Knowing

Isaiah 46:9-10 “Remember carefully the former things which I did from ages past; For I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, And from ancient times the things which have not yet been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will do all that pleases Me and fulfils My purpose,’

God Is Omnipresent – He Is Always Everywhere

Jeremiah 23:24 “Can anyone hide himself in secret places So that I cannot see him?” says the Lord. “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.

God Is Wise – He Is Full of Perfect, Unchanging Wisdom

Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives skilful and godly wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

God Is Faithful – He Is Infinitely, Unchangingly True

Deuteronomy 7:9 Therefore know without any doubt and understand that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who is keeping His covenant and His steadfast lovingkindness to a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.

God Is Good – He Is Infinitely, Unchangingly Kind and Full of Good Will

Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the Lord our God is good; How blessed, fortunate, prosperous, and favoured by God is the man who takes refuge in Him.

God Is Just – He Is Infinitely, Unchangeably Right and Perfect in All He Does

Luke 18:7 And will not our just God defend and avenge His elect His chosen ones who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay in providing justice on their behalf?

God Is Merciful – He is Infinitely, Unchangeably Compassionate and Kind

Deuteronomy 4:31 For the Lord your God is a merciful and compassionate God; He will not fail you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant with your fathers which He swore to them.

God Is Gracious – God Is Infinitely Inclined to Spare the Guilty

Psalm 145:8 The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.

God Is Loving – God Infinitely, Unchangingly Loves Us

1 John 4:8 The one who does not love has not become acquainted with God does not and never did know Him, for God is love. He is the originator of love, and it is an enduring attribute of His nature.

God Is Holy – He is Infinitely, Unchangingly Perfect

Isaiah 6:3 And one called out to another, saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is filled with His glory.”

God Is Glorious – He is Infinitely Beautiful and Great

Psalm 72:19 Blessed be His glorious name forever; And may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen.

      1. That’s great! Yes I’m doing good. God is doing some amazing things right now in my life and those around me. It’s an amazing privilege to be walking in the fullness of God.
        Much love ❤️

  1. God Is Good

    Can you actually defend that claim given the historical reality?

    For example, could a designer of extraordinary compassion and unlimited means oversee a world where the very mechanisms necessary to physically experience something beginning to resemble ‘happiness’ (enkephalin and opioid receptors) would not even exist in the world before some 3.5 billion years of terrestrial evolution had passed and untold billions of generations of living things had suffered enormously without as much as the hope of corporeal relief?

    I’m curious as to how you square that physical reality with your belief?

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post and also for your comment.

      In answer to your question,

      “Can you defend the claim ‘God is good’ given the historical reality?”

      Unfortunately, I’m not really into history or science I’m afraid and I can only speak from a viewpoint of having a personal relationship with Jesus and discovering peace and freedom in my life since becoming a Christian.

      I don’t really feel the need to defend anything I’ve written because that would kind of be like me defending God and I believe that God is my defender and not the other way round!

      Much love,
      Hayley 😊
