Understanding God’s Character

Presented by: Pastor Vickie on June 24, 2015.

Pastor Vickie begins this series with various examples of how we benefit from an understanding of God’s character.

God’s character is multifaceted. He wants us to have an intimate relationship with him.  God wants to share, he wants an intimate relationship and an intimate friendship with his children. And it’s a loving friendship, a merciful friendship.

By the time we complete this study, we’ll realize the real true character of God as much as is humanly possible.  Our faith will be increased.

 

Referencing Isaiah 55:89 Pastor Vickie continues to show us that God is unlike any of us.

Isaiah 55:8-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

 

And then in the New Testament, we read from Third John 1:2 that God want’s us to prosper and be in health.

3 John 1:2 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.

 

 

Understanding God’s word will take away any weapon Satan can wield against you.  Fear is going to be totally cast out if we understand the perfect love God has for us.
