The Greatness of God

These posts resulted from my devotional thoughts based on my recent studies and reading of “The Knowledge of the Holy” by A.W. Tozer. I hope that by reading these posts you will rediscover the majesty of God, revive a spirit of worship, and develop an ability to withdraw inwardly to meet God in humble adoration.  Allow the…

The Knowledge of the Holy

Good theology ought to produce the realization of godliness in our life. When the Christian sees God for who He is then the Christian will see himself for who he really is and who he ought to be as a faithful child of God. Growing and maturing in the knowledge of the attributes of God…

The Sovereignty of God

God’s omniscience, omnipotence, and freedom combine to support the concept of God’s sovereignty, or God’s rule over all creation. In order to be the Ruler over everything, His sovereignty must be limitless, that is, there must be no boundaries to His authority. For there to be no boundaries to His authority, God must possess all…

The Holiness of God

The scene around the throne of God is punctuated by the resounding declaration of the angels who cry “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty!” The sight of the thrice holy God caused Isaiah to bow in humility and cry, “Woe is me!” (Isaiah 6:3, 5).  Moses and the Israelites sang praises to God that opined,…

The Love of God

Imagine a life that is free from fears, anxieties, and apprehensions. Perhaps one would picture such a life as only possible in heaven, but the Bible indicates that “there is no fear in love” and that “perfect love casteth out fear” (I John 4:18). Fear is the consuming emotion that wrestles in uncertainty and anxiety;…

The Grace of God

The sin of man has accumulated a spiritual debt that can never be repaid by human effort or merit. Prior to salvation, every person “walked according to the course of this world” (Ephesians 2:2). During that time, the walk of the unsaved sought to capitalize on the carnival of worldly lusts which yielded disobedience to…

The Mercy of God

With all the anguish and guilt that has sprung forth as a result of sin and evil, the world is in desperate need of the divine, healing balm of God’s mercy. Mercy is the “goodness of God confronting human suffering.” God’s mercy is compassionate though undeserved. What right do people, who have instigated such pain…

The Justice of God

The execution of God’s justice should be kept in the perspective of His goodness. God knows precisely what His children need, and in His goodness He extends grace to meet that need. In this case, His children need correction, and that is delivered in the form of justice. In equity He chastises and disciplines His…

The Goodness of God

The children’s prayer that declares “God is good” is a simple way to teach children about the attributes of God. Despite such simplicity, that phrase contains a great depth of glory that encourages one’s meditation upon the goodness of God. Upon reflection, God’s goodness is that attribute that God demonstrates that He is kind, caring,…

The Faithfulness of God

The glorious image of Christ’s return given by revelation to John should captivate our complete attention. The heaven opens and a brilliant white horse comes bounding toward the earth with an innumerable host of angels trailing behind the gallant Leader who sits upon that glowing steed. He that will sit upon that horse will be…
