Sometimes, we get so bugged down by life that we forget who our God is. This is a just a quick reminder.
Our God is a good God. He is merciful and gracious.
Our God is a Father. He is family driven. He called Abraham and created a family. Through Abraham, He gave an opportunity to the entire world to be His family. He longs for a close relationship with us.
He is a friend. He was a friend to Abraham. What a wonderful honour. He shares His secrets with His friends.
Our God invites us to reason with Him. He loves to engage us. “Bring forth your strong reasons,” He says. He promises to draw near to anyone who would draw near to Him.
He is a King. The King of all kings. He makes alive and He kills. He is the Most High God. He is able. He never fails. Nothing is impossible with Him. He is greatly to be praised. All things that were created are for His pleasure. He is so beautiful. Glorious in His majesty.
He is a Man of War. A Mighty Man in battle. He has no match. He is supreme in all things – wisdom, power, honour, majesty, glory. He is mighty. His wisdom knows no bounds. One with Him is majority. He is above all.
God is love. He is the perfect demonstration of love. He loves without ceasing. His love is so amazing, so warm, so encompassing.
He is Holy. He is pure. No evil or sin can be found in Him. Nothing evil can come from Him.
He is unchanging. He is no respecter of persons. He does not do eye service. Who does He have to please? He honours His Word more than His name. His name is a strong tower for the safety of the righteous. He is a reliable God. He doesn't sleep, He never slumbers. Nothing committed to Him sees corruption.
He is the Creator of the entire and expanding Universe. He is the beginning and the end and everything in between. There are no limits with Him. He is the Father of Light and Truth.
Jehovah is His covenant name. His first and begotten Son is Jesus Christ, Master of the Universe. Jesus is the Light and the Truth.
Isn’t it a great honour to be His child? To be created in His own image and likeness?
Think about what it means to be His child. The child of God is a god. You are a god. You have creative abilities. You have dominion on earth. You have unlimited potential to mirror Him. You are the apple of eye, a peculiar person, a unique person, a royal heir. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. There are no limits to what you can do and what you can be.
Child of the Most High God, get up and shine. Your Father is the light. Shine so bright, that the world will see Him in you.
