As in most days of my life, I’ve got too much going on so I needed to take a little break from writing. Not that my brain totally shut off from it but simply the effort it took to put those thoughts on paper has been too much for me. Hence why I am 2 weeks behind in my Five Minute Friday writing. But then when I saw the word for this past Friday my mind told me, “this was by no accident”, God had me take a break for a reason.
So all that to say, this may be longer than five minutes of thinking/typing time.
When I thought of Who, I immediately went to who is God and who is He is to me.
Well first I had to understand that………
God is Sovereign – He is the #1 ruler of the universe.
The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
God is Eternal – He has no beginning and no end.
“This is what the Lord says— Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.
God is Omniscient – He possesses all knowledge.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
God is Omnipresent – He is infinite and everywhere present through all time and space.
Who can hide in secret places so that I cannot see them?” declares the Lord. “Do not I fill heaven and earth?” declares the Lord.
God is Omnipotent – He is all powerful having more than enough strength to do all things.
But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ
God is Immutable – He is never changing in His nature.
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
God is Righteous – He would never cause or do anything wrong. In fact it is impossible.
Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.
God is Just – He will never do anything that is unfair to Himself or to others.
2 Timothy 4:8
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
God is Love – He loves freely and without any thought to the loveliness or merit of the object.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Who is God? He is my Everything! What moment did I realize this? Not soon enough!
The first decade of my christian-hood (if there is such a word) was riding on the tail of my husband and his family. I truly didn’t know I was supposed to have a personal relationship with HIM.
The second decade of my christian-hood was spent figuring out who God was to this newly divorced, new married and newly becoming me moments.
The third decade of my christian-hood was when that moment found me and showed me Who God is in my life. And since that moment there have been more and more of those moments.
I have seen how He has been sovereign, eternal, omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, immutable, righteous, just and oh so much love. I am seeing more clearly how He was working in my life way before I even knew that He knew who I was. It was actually before I knew Who He was. He has been preparing me for this MOMENT!
Lord I’m amazed with each and every new day! Thank you God. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Holy Spirit for guiding me. Amen
