Who is GOD?

So many times as we walk through life with all it's many ups and downs -- all the problems we face -- we tend to not elevate ourselves towards God but instead bring HIM down to our level.  

We start believing that God feels the same way about people that we do and vice versa... In our minds, God becomes judgmental, erratic, unloving, only interested in a list of DO's and DON'Ts.  We think God is vindictive, mean, withholding good from us.  Or worse, we see HIM as totally ignoring us as if we don't exist.  We see HIM confined and restricted by the same faults that humanity is confined and restricted by.

BUT GOD is GOD.

HE is SUPREME.

There is NO ONE who is EQUAL to GOD.

There is NONE OTHER like HIM.

GOD is PERFECTION.
That means that HE can become NO BETTER than he already is.

GOD is ALL KNOWING.
That means that HE ALREADY knows everything.
If at anytime HE needed to know something more it would mean HE COULD NOT BE GOD.
HE would CEASE TO EXIST because HE would not be PERFECTION.

HE is present EVERYWHERE.
If there is anywhere where GOD is not present then HE CANNOT BE GOD.
GOD IS NOT LIMITED BY TIME AND SPACE!

GOD is ALL POWERFUL.
BUT HE CANNOT do EVERYTHING.
GOD CAN ONLY DO WHAT "IS IN HARMONY WITH HIS NATURE AND PERFECTION."1
This means that ALL the POWER that GOD wields 
HE holds in check.

HE cannot sin, or lie, or change HIS nature.
HE cannot do absurdities.
HE cannot be unjust or unrighteous or unholy.
HE cannot make laws that are unjust, unrighteous or unholy.
Therefore HIS judgments and actions are just, righteous and holy.

HE cannot stop loving because GOD IS LOVE.
HE CANNOT CHANGE!


When we can begin to get a true grasp of WHO GOD IS, when we can wrap our hearts, our minds around what we know of HIM -- oh the peace and security!
