God is a mystery I haven’t even begun to understand. I don’t know where He came from or why He exists. The Bible is my only insight into the profound entity that is God. But based on what I’ve read from His words… There are a few of His characteristics that I really like.
1. He is a creator. It’s one thing to create something from something. It’s another to create something from nothing. Countless Bible stories show God’s most impressive creations come from nothing. He built the world from nothing. He turned slaves into powerful tribes. Shepherds into kings. Harlots into heroines. And so much more.
2. He keeps His promises. This Divine trait, I have a love/hate relationship with. On the one hand, I love that my Lord is committed to His Word and His Promises. On the other hand, He doesn’t always fulfill them on my time table. #impatient 😥
3. He is a mystery. Even though I listed it last, this is probably my favorite feature. Bible scholars who dedicate their lives to unraveling the mysteries of God can’t even come close to explaining Him and His ways. No one knows the mind of God. No one knows the full extent of His power and wisdom. Anyone who claims otherwise, overestimate their limited knowledge. That infinite, abstract aspect of God titillates my mind.
