Knowing God

The Bible is very specific as to who and what God is and what He is not.

In Psalm 145, King David beautifully lays out who and what God is.

Verse 8 – The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and of great mercy.

You may be going through a tough time right now, but if you turn to the Lord, know that He will see you through. God uses the hard times to get our attention and turn us back to Him. He IS full of compassion and is tenderhearted toward those who love Him.

Verse 9 – The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.

Romans 8:28 says that “ALL things work together for good. . .” The Lord has a bigger plan and He sees our future.

Verse 17 – The Lord is righteous in ALL His ways, and holy in ALL His Truth.

Trust and obedience are the way to God’s heart.  Trusting Him in everything and walking obediently in His statutes.

Verse 18 – The Lord is near unto ALL those who call upon Him, to ALL who call upon Him in Truth.

If you have lost your way, or cannot find happiness in anything you have tried – drugs, homosexuality, alcohol, transgenderism, religion – anything to fill the void in your life – call upon the Lord. He will not disappoint. God made us for a relationship with Him.

Verse 19 – He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry, and will save them.

His Truth is found only in His Word – the Bible. The Bible was written for man “by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine [set of beliefs], for reproof [disapproval], for correction [process of correcting], for instruction [directions] in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect [complete], thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” II Timothy 3:16-17

2 Peter 3:9 – “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise . . . but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance.”

If you do not know Him, cry out to Him, He will hear you!

I John 5:13 – “These things have I [Apostle John] written until you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that you may KNOW that you have eternal life, and that you may believe on the name of the Son of God.”

He is a good, good God, full of mercy and loving kindness, and He wants you to know Him.
