God is…

If you were to ask yourself who God is, what would come to mind? Who would you say that God is? Of course the first things that we think are things like God is good, loving, and powerful. But what else is our God? Here is what I learned as I went through the Bible looking for the answer to this question.

  • God is gracious (2 Chronicles 30:9)
  • God is mine helper (Psalm 54:4)
  • God is my defence (Psalm 59:9,17)
  • God is merciful (2 Chronicles 30:9)
  • God is the strength of my heart (Psalm 73:26)
  • God is my salvation (Psalm 62:7)
  • God is faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9)
  • God is light (1 John 1:5)
  • God is great (Job 36:26)
  • God is my strength and power (2 Samuel 22:33)
  • God is thy refuge (Deuteronomy 33:27)
  • God is love (1 John 4:16)
  • God is in you (1 Corinthians 14:25)
  • God is true (John 3:33)
  • God is a spirit (John 4:24)

Those are the ones that we typically think of, but here are some others:

  • God is mighty in strength & wisdom (Job 36:5)
  • God is angry with the wicked (Psalm 7:11)
  • God is holy (Psalm 99:9)
  • God is the King of all the earth (Psalm 47:7)
  • God is Judge (Psalm 50:6)
  • God is righteous (Daniel 9:14)
  • God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34)
  • God is jealous (Deuteronomy 4:31)
  • God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7)
  • God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29)

Truly our God is to be feared.

Psalm 89:7, 8 – God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O LORD God of hosts, who is a strong LORD like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

A few more:

  • God is one (Galatians 3:20)
  • God is our witness (Romans 1:9)
  • God is a sun and shield (Psalm 84:11)
  • God is not a man that he should lie (Numbers 23:19)
  • God is greater than man (Job 33:12)
  • God is God of gods and Lord of lords (Deuteronomy 10:17)
  • God is in the generation of the righteous (Psalm 14:5)
  • God is gone up with a shout (Psalm 47:5)
  • God is our God forever (Psalm 48:14)
