Behold, Our God

By: Larry Shaffer

He is the God of the city!

Behold, Our God! 1 

This week, let’s take a break from Genesis and reflect upon the amazing attributes of God through this compilation of attributes & scriptures. They describe, from God’s Word, the attributes of God that He directs toward those He loves.  

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God. I John 3:1 

Great is Your Goodness 

  • Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalms 34.8 
  • You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees. Psalms. 119.68 
  • Every good and perfect gift comes from above… James 1.17 
  • And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purposes. Roman 8.28 
  • Father, Your good goes way beyond what we understand as ‘good’. Your ‘good’ covers everything that intersects our lives with Your mind-boggling Providence that takes us to heaven with a heart ready for eternity. Regardless of the temporary circumstances of this world, You have changed our hearts and there is nothing is better! 

Great is Your Love 

  • Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches the skies…How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Psalms 36:5-7 
  • For You Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon you. Psalms 86:5 
  • But in all these things, we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37 
  • In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son… I John 4:10 
  • Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. I John 4.7 
  • ….the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5.5 
  • Father, You made the first move toward us in love. You loved us first. You not only made us the object of Your love but You gave us Your love that we might love others with Your love. You loved, now we can love. You gave, now we can give. May we be your hands and feet on this earth so that all will know that You are a God of love, mighty to save.
