Character of God


It Is Written, 1  John 4:16, and we have known and believed the love that God has for us.  God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
It is one thing to know about God, and it is quite another to know how He works, what to expect, and what He expects.  Praying and believing is very difficult, or almost impossible if you don't know how you fit in to God's picture, and what you can count on God to do.
For one thing,  His Word says that you can talk to Him at any time, and He will talk to you.  Another thing about God, is His faithfulness to those who love Him.  He showers His people with special favor, and as most people call them, blessings.  Do you have any idea how good and loving He is?
Many people don't know Him, so they like to think they can judge His idea of mercy and justice.  How foolish that is.  Because they don't really know Him, they are dupes of the devil.  The one who is created, cannot judge the creator.  His standards and reasons are His.
The promises of God are so many,  it would take an incredible amount of time to list even some of them.  God has unlimited power, and love, so that nothing is impossible for Him to do.  That makes His promises guaranteed.
When you put it all together, it is easy to see only one God, and only one that fits the bill.  When you know God in your heart, believing is not hard to do.  The secrets of God are in the Bible.  Even though the Bible spells it all out, I call them secrets, because if you don't read His Word, they are secrets to you.
If you spend some time reading the New Testament, you will see parables, and the love and compassion of Jesus.  It will give your prayer life a whole new, and productive meaning.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
