Nothing in this world can compare with God’s love for us and his power in our lives. Some days we may not feel it. Other days we might even think we’ve been left on our own in difficult situations. But the Bible speaks of God’s many attributes, and verse after verse remind us of his commitment and promises to his people. The attributes of God are those characteristics that help us understand who God is - both eternally and for us personally.
Often our view of God might get distorted by current media opinion or even a hard relationship with our dad or authority figures. We start thinking God must be the same. We may view him as some far away presence up in the sky, just waiting to zap us for doing something wrong. Many people think God is angry or distant. Others view him as disinterested in their lives, too busy, or feel like they could never measure up.
These are lies straight from the enemy and couldn’t be further from the truth. What’s true is found in his word. And when life circumstances shake us to the core through struggles or hard times, there is nothing that can hold us secure except the One who created us. If you find yourself facing uncertain times right now, go to God. Run to Him. He is never far away, He waits for you even today. Meditate on his truth over you. Pray His words back to Him. It is a life-changing work that takes place when we recognize the authority and Sovereignty of God over our lives, when we look back and see how He’s pursued us and has never let go.
And in that very place comes the deepest peace and security we can ever know, through Christ His only Son.
