The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Love

Attributes

"God is love" (1 John 4:8, 16). This is the best-known of all of God's attributes, and arguably the most misunderstood. Too many people think that God's love is a "one size fits all" matter; that God loves everyone equally. God's love, however, is nuanced, and as we look more and more into it we can better grasp its depths. "The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over ...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Good

Attributes

God Is Good.We learn this truth from Scripture passages such as: Psalm 34:8, "Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!" and Psalm 136:1, "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever." The problem is that we use the word "good" to describe a number of things, and so when we think about it as on...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Patient

Attributes

The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,And the Lord will by no means clear the guilt.His way is in the whirlwind and storm,And the clouds are the dust of his feet. (Nahum 1:3) God is patient and that is a wonderful truth for all creatures who dwell on earth. When we say that God is patient we mean that God forebears, delays, and tempers the punishment all sinners de...

The Attributes of God Devotional - Introduction

Attributes

"O LORD God of hosts, who is like You, O Mighty LORD?" (Psalm 89:8) God reigns sovereign and supreme, even in strange times such as these. When anxiety and fear tempt us to set our faith on the shelf in favor of more "practical" approaches to life, Christians should be reminded that nothing is more "practical" than believing what the Triune God has revealed about Himself ...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Blessed

Attributes

Many people may not think of God being blessed as an attribute. Many systematic theologies do not even speak of the blessedness of God as a divine attribute. I can argue, however, that "God is blessed" is the perfect three-word summation as to who God is. All of God's attributes unite perfectly, with the result that he has in himself an infinite eternal fullness, delight,...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God Is Triune

Attributes

The word going out these days is keep your social distance and by all means do not congregate! That's easy to say but difficult for us to do. As Christians we have a God-given desire to congregate. That's why the church is called a congregation, both in the Old and New Covenant. We congregate! The word congregate comes from the Latin wordscommeaning "together" andgregare...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Independent

Attributes

Our Triune God is independent. He does not depend on anyone or anything for his existence and continuance. You and I, as his creatures, depend on him for our existence and continuance, but he, as the uncreated Creator, is self-existent and self-sustaining. God declares in Job 41:11, "Who has first given to me, that I should repay him? Whatever is under the whole heaven is...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God Is Simple

Attributes

To say that God is simple might sound incorrect at first. How could a sovereign, holy, and glorious being be simple? Wouldn't it be more accurate and flattering to say that God is infinitely complex? The answer we find in Scripture is that God is simple. James Dolezal explains that "the principal claim of divine simplicity is that God is not composed of parts. A part is a...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God Is Eternal

Attributes

Our prayers are imperfect, yet God hears and understands them perfectly and completely. "do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day." 2 Peter 3:8 What do these statements have to do with each other? We creatures are bound, contained, and limited in time. Yet we pray to God who spoke ti...

In 701 BC, the Kingdom of Judah was facing a crisis. Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, was invading Judah. He had conquered other kingdoms, most recently the Northern Kingdom of Israel, and he and his forces seemed to be invincible. People were frightened. Some were suggesting that Judah make an alliance with Egypt. King Hezekiah took measures. He stopped the water that f...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God Is Infinite

Attributes

Sheltering in place for the past few weeks has allowed us all to experience a new sense of material and personal limitations. We've seen the store shelves limited in their stock of bottled water and bread, and we have all been limited from congregating, recreating, and entertaining in the many ways that were familiar to us just weeks ago. In glaring ways, we are now seeing...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Unchangeable

Attributes

This year has brought many changes in almost every area of life: economic, health, social even our own church community meetings. Stability is what gives meaning to currencies, stocks, laws, morals, customs, and cultures. The list goes on and on. The Good News is that we have One who doesn't change; who is immutable. Therefore, He gives ultimate meaning to our existence. ...

Attributes

"Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence?" (Psalm 139:7) It's what everyone's talking about. It's on everyone's mind. It's everywhere you go: the grocery store, the beach, at home, sporting events, concerts, the news; even the church is affected. All of life is engulfed by it. It seems as though it's omnipresent. But, of course, COVID-...

The Attributes of God Devotional - God is Omnipotent

Attributes

God's omnipotence is the first attribute in this devotional series that we have not learned about in Sunday school because we had to suspend our corporate gatherings due to the pandemic. "Omnipotence" is derived from Latin and means all-powerful. When used of God, it reveals the fact that God can do anything he pleases and that is consistent with his nature. This is clear...

Someday in the near future I envision us gathering again to share with one another how we made use of our time in quarantine. People all over the world will do the same. Some stories will be of joy in uncertain times and some stories will be of the fear and anxiety of the unknown. After 9/11, the collective mood in our country was a desire to feel secure again; now there s...
