God’s Character 


For those who do not know the Lord in their heart, Scripture reveals God’s character to us. In fact God’s character is revealed to us, through us. A lot of how we act and feel is from God. He created us in his image and his likeness. Understanding God will help us to understand how we were made to be.


 Psalm 68:5

5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of the widow, is God in his holy dwelling.

(Those whom are weak, or have less in the world, are openhearted toward God. It is because those who have less in the world have plenty of room in their heart for God. If you lust after and live for treasures of this world, and you will have no room for God. Your love will be for your possessions.)

 


Psalm 68:19-20

19 Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. 20 Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.

(True faith has trust. If you have faith in the Lord, you do not need to worry about the burdens of this world. If you follow all his commands and keep him first in your heart then you are in his grace, and nothing can snatch you out of his hand.)

 


Psalm 75:2-52

You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly. 3 When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. 4 To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns. 5 Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.’”

(God must judge and punish justly. To withhold punishment would be unjust. Just like a father punishes his children, so God deals with the world.)

 


Psalm 86:5-10

5 You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you. 6 Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy. 7 In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me. 8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. 9 All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name, 10 For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.

(God is forgiving, good, abounding in love, merciful, and forever hearing. He hears you, even when you think he is not listening.)

 


Psalm 86:15

15 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.


 

Psalm 89:14

14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.

 


Psalm 89:30-33

30 “If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes, 31 if they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands, 32 I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging; 33 but I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness.

(Do not despise the Lord if he punishes you. He does it to teach you, to turn you from your ways.)

 


Joel 2:13

13 Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.

(God gives much time to us. He gave over 400 years for the Canaanites to repent, while the Israelites were in Egypt. Then he brought judgment upon them. Turn quickly when you are punished because God does not want to have to punish you.)

 


Micah 5:15

15 “I will take vengeance in anger and wrath upon the nations that have not obeyed me.”

(In the end if you fail to repent, and deliberately disobey the Lord, He will bring his wrath upon you. The Lord may be slow to anger, but when he is angered, it will be just as a parent who has had all they could stand of a rebellious child. All of his punishment will be poured out at once.)

 


Nahum 1:2-32

The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord takes vengeance and is filled with wrath. The Lord takes vengeance on his foes and maintains his wrath against his enemies. 3 The Lord is slow to anger and great in power; the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.

 


Nahum 1:7

7 The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.

 


Malachi 3:6

6 “I the Lord do not change.-

(Many think that the Lord has changed his means of punishment because Jesus Christ has died for us. But he is still the same today that he was in the old testament days. Even then he was a forgiving, merciful, faithful, and righteous God. Now we have fellowship with him through Jesus Christ.)
