Who is God?

If someone were to ask you “Who is God” what would you tell them who is God?

Here’s what I would say. God is the Creator and Ruler of all things. God is eternal. God is the Supreme Being. God is limitless. He is an infinite being. We can’t limit God by our finite understanding. He is infinite. We may never understand it.

God is omnipotent. He is a strong tower. He has all power (Jeremiah 10:12). God is omniscient. He has infinite knowledge and wisdom (Psalm 147:5). God is omnipresent. His presence is everywhere (Psalm 139:7-12). We can find him when we seek him in the midst of our struggles and when in despair. He is a present help anywhere and everywhere. God is one but exists in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is spirit.

If someone were to ask you “Why do you love God” what would you say about your love of God? You don’t have to answer right away, but here is what I would say. I love God because he first loved me. He gave his one and only Son Jesus. He sent his only begotten Son to die for me. Jesus died that I may have eternal life. God loves me unconditionally no matter the strife. God is love. I love him because he is God. God loves each and every one of us. “How could you not love God?”

If someone were to ask, “How do you know all these things of a being you cannot see? Is there any evidence you can show me of what you cannot see that I may see?” I believe this answer is easy. By faith, I know and believe in what I cannot see. By faith, I accept that God does exist even though I cannot see. I can sense his presence every day.  I believe, by faith.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things unseen (Heb 11:1). Faith is not based on proof of what we visualize when looking at material things. It is belief in what we cannot see that is not proof. Evidence of God cannot be proven or disproved.  It is our belief in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit that we believe. What more proof do you need?

We may not physically see God, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world” (Psalm 19:1-4). God is Almighty God.

God is the Creator of the world. He is the giver and sustainer of all life. Without God, we’re nothing. There is no life.

If someone were to ask you about God, what would you say? If someone asked, “Who is God” what would you say? As a believer, I would simply tell them “God is infinite. God exists. Have faith in God’s existence.

Be blessed! –JD

Psalm 139:7-12 “Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! 9 If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, 10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” 12 even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as day, for darkness is as light with you.”

Random Thoughts….

Good morning God. I’m awake at 4:00 am finding that I can’t sleep even though I know I must, given the day I have ahead.

random-thoughtsIn a few days the events of my life that have been a constant fixture for the past seven years will come full circle and believe it or not, I’m having anxiety and panic filled emotions about it. Even though I am confident of the results because of my faith and belief in God, as I sit here wondering what next. My mind is going 60 miles a minute thinking before my time.

I am a very strong person, a faithful believer in Jesus Christ, and in most cases, can handle whatever comes my way but honestly, speaking from my heart, I’m a little scared. I really don’t know what to expect when I reach my destination and face the enemy once again, but I know what God has already confirmed in my spirit. “No need to worry or fret. Be not afraid, for I am with you.” He has already worked this out. This is going to pass. I will have victory. Great will be my reward.

Now, I know all of this sounds strange because one can ask the question, “If you believe and have faith, why you’re scared and having anxiety and panic filled emotions?” And my answer to that is you got to remember, these are only emotions of what I’m feeling right now. It doesn’t mean this is who I am. Only what I’m feeling. Simply put, I’m human.

And in essence, it’s normal. But it’s not where I will stay. These feelings and emotions will change. I already know what this is since I already know what happens when you find yourself coming to the end of a journey and the enemy does all he can to trick you into believing what you’re seeing is what will be. He becomes your greatest adversary. He wants you to not believe in what he knows God already said will be. He wants to create negativity.

He wants to convince you that God has left you and is no longer with you. That you will fail. That you are weak and out of your vulnerability, you will lose your faith as he works to put fear in your heart.

But I’m not having it. I recognize when the enemy comes in like a flood in his attempt to kill, steal, and destroy, I must wage war against him. “The Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

God has allowed me to come too far by faith, to get over too many hills, too many mountains, and too many obstacles to leave me now. He has brought me through too many trials, too many tribulations, and too many circumstances for me not to believe just as he said, “this too shall pass.” That he is with me, right beside me, in front, and behind me. He won’t fail. Neither will I; with the Lord by my side.

But as I said, these are human emotions and simply what I’m feeling right now as of this moment at 4:00 am. And it’s normal.

Thank you, God for listening. Now I must find my way back to sleep at least for a little while.

Psalm 23  “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
