Deuteronomy 7:9 (erv)
Yesterday, we talked about all the reasons that God’s given us to put our faith in Him instead of allowing our fears to take over. Today, I wanted to spend some time looking at all the reasons why we can choose that faith – it all focuses around who He is. His character, His qualities; those are the reasons we’re able to lean into Him and trust Him.
Looking at what the Word says about Him and meditating on those things is how we’ll begin to build and maintain that faith. So right now, let’s do just that.
Psalm 86:15 – My Lord, you are a kind and merciful God. You are patient, loyal, and full of love.
Psalm 103:6-10 – The Lord does what is fair. He brings justice to all who have been hurt by others. He taught his laws to Moses. He let Israel see the powerful things he can do. The Lord is kind and merciful. He is patient and full of love. He does not always criticize. He does not stay angry with us forever. We sinned against him, but he didn’t give us the punishment we deserved.
Psalm 139:12 – Even the darkness is not dark to you. The night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are the same.
Isaiah 40:14 – Did the Lord ask for anyone’s help? Did anyone teach him to be fair? Did anyone teach him knowledge? Did anyone teach him to be wise?
Revelation 4:11 – Our Lord and God! You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power. You made all things. Everything existed and was made because you wanted it.
In your journal, write down some of your favorite traits and qualities of God.
Meditate on the good qualities you wrote about the Lord, and spend time thanking Him for being who He is.
