Omnipotent, all-powerful. God is the creator of the universe contrary to popular beliefs. As described in Psalm 74:13-17, He is the master of all. There is nothing that God cannot do. Yet, as powerful as He is, He won’t force Himself into our lives. We must let Him in and give Him the control. He asks us to give Him our hearts. We tend to forget that He gives life and it is His anyway. But more than anything, He gave us free will. What a powerful thing. And, though He gave it to us, He allows us the choice on whether to give it back to Him for His purpose and glory. And, yes there is always more with God, He loves us regardless. So much so that He gave His only Son, Jesus, that we would have the means to reconcile with Him.
Psalm 74:13-17 – 13 “It was You who split open the sea by your power; You broke the heads of the monster in the waters. 14 It was You who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave it as food to the creatures of the desert. 15 The day is Yours, and Yours also the night; You established the sun and moon. 16 It was you who opened up springs and streams; You dried up the ever-flowing rivers. 17 It was You who set all the boundaries of the earth; You made both summer and winter.”
God is…Omniscient, all-knowing. If you want to know something, ask the Lord. James (1:5) states that if any man lacks wisdom, let him ask God. Many times, when we think of asking God, we feel like we can’t or won’t wait for the answer. However, with God, there is always an answer. It is “yes”, “no”, or “wait.” Now, let’s say that God does answer you, are ready for the answer. If yes, are you prepared for whatever comes along with that yes? If no, are we prepared to trust that God knows what’s best for us? We may think we need what we want right now, however, since God is the omniscient one, He knows the future and may see something attached to that thing which is harmful to us. Remember His love for us. He is good to us whether we always see it or not. Can you “wait” on God when you need to?
Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
God is…Omnipresent, present everywhere. We see evidence of God all around us, from the neighbor or person next to us – man created in God’s image – to the beauty and wonderment of nature. However, God is also present in the spirit. The Word states that God is spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
John 4:23-24 – 23 “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
God is just that awesome that He would give us a deposit of His Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us. He is present everywhere. Let us exalt Him daily and give Him the praise, honor and glory due His name. This post is a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the awesomeness of God, and then some more fractions. He is an all-consuming fire within us when we let Him be. Won’t you join me in worshiping the one, true God?
