My God is a God of power. He spoke, and the Heavens and Earth came into being. He spoke and formed the majestic firmament over the Earth. He formed man from the clay. All the wonders of the creation, the creatures, the plants, the waters...He made them all.
My God is a God of mercy. God gave man every thing he needed for life and happiness, but mankind rebelled against God. So God made a plan to redeem mankind. They had earned death through rebellion, but God sent His only begotten Son to take mankind’s death penalty.
My God is full of lovingkindness. He showed us His love by saving us from our death and damnation in that while we were still in rebellion against Him, He gave up the life of His beloved Son to save us.
My God is a good shepherd. We are like sheep prone to wander. But God tenderly brings us back to Him and to Life when we go astray. He guides around the dangers of this world. He carefully helps us to grow and prosper. He provided in this Earth all that we need to sustain us.
My God is a God of Justice. When we repeatedly go astray so far, He lets us go our own way, and suffer the consequences of our rebellion. The punishment is death and damnation. If we so choose to reject His son Jesus, who was willing to take all our punishment in our place, The Just God will allow it to happen. He will not let evildoers prosper forever. He sends rain and sunshine on the just and unjust alike, but their end will be very different in the long run. Those who turn to God and trust in Him, will find eternal life. Those who refuse will be separated from God, life and every good thing forever.
Hebrews 3:7 Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says,
“Today if you hear His voice,
8 Do not harden your hearts as when they provoked Me,
As on the day of trial in the wilderness,
9 Where your fathers put Me to the test,
And saw My works for forty years.
10 Therefore I was angry with this generation,
And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart,
And they did not know My ways’;
11 As I swore in My anger,
‘They certainly shall not enter My rest.’”
