Last Sunday we noticed some qualities of God from the book The Everyday Guide to God. It lists hundreds of characteristics from A to Z. Let me share a few more for your reflection.
Dependable. “God is not a human being that he should lie, or a mortal, that he should change his mind. Has he promised, and will he not do it? Has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” —Numbers 23:19, NRSV
Eternal. “The eternal God is your Refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms.” —Deut. 33:27, TLB
Faithful. “The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he had made.” —Ps. 145:13, NIV
Good. “For the Lord is good, and his mercy is never-ending; his faith is unchanging through all generations.” —Ps. 110:5
Holy. “Exalt the Lord our God, And worship at His holy hill; For the Lord our God is holy.” —Ps. 99:9, NKJV
Impartial. “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right.” —Ac. 10:34-35, NIV
Just. “For I will proclaim the name of the Lord; ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock, His work is perfect, and all His ways are just. A faithful God, without deceit, just and upright is He.” —Deut. 32:3-4, NRSV
These seven qualities remind us what a great and glorious God we serve. May our worship today glorify Him. And may our faithful service acknowledge His daily presence in our lives.
