Omniscient (omnipresent/ubiquitous  & omnipotent) One & Only Mt 6:8 Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. Ps 139

Isa 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.  Ps 139:23  Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties 24 lead me

He knows us, our needs, our past/present/future failures and successes and is always with us as we open ourselves to Him. Mt 28:20


Patient Power & Glory   Nahum 1:3 The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.

Jer 32:17…made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. 18 You show hesed to thousands, and  repay…Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the LORD of hosts. 27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?

Since God has infinite power, He can do or make anything He chooses (which would include anything we need)  {What’s best-When best}


Quixotically Quintessential (5th element) Ac 17:27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28  for in Him we live and move and have our being, Eph 4:10…that He might fill all

Rm 11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! Job 9:10  He does great things past finding out, Yes, wonders without number. Eph 5:10  finding out what is acceptable to the Lord

Sometimes we don’t see God’s purpose so we learn to trust Him. If He hasn’t revealed what we want to know, it’s for a beneficial purpose.


Revealed Righteous and Relational Redeemer Isa 43:1, who created…formed you: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. 48:17 LORD, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go. 54:5 For your Maker is your husband, The LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. Ps 48:10; 97:2; 119:137; 145:17

God reveals Himself as we walk with Him, and Him with us, but He doesn’t drag us on a leash.  Jn 14:21

Transcendent Timeless Truth  Jn 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. Nu 23:19 

Dt 32:4 He is the Rock, His work perfect; For all His ways justice, a God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.

God is the ultimate expression of reality, beyond time or any human/material limits;


Understanding Ps 103:13…the LORD pities those who fear Him 14 For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.

Ps 86:15  But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.

1Ch 29:11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power and the glory, the victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is yours; yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and You are exalted as head over all. 12  Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In your hand is power and might; In your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.13 thank & praise

God always chooses the right objectives and right means of obtaining them, and is always open to reasonable discussion.


X-ray vision (sees hearts) Jer 17:10  I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. Ps 139:1 LORD, You have searched me and known me.   We can run, but we can’t hide or get lost.


Yahweh YHWH 7000x Ex 6:3 I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name LORD I was not known to them.


Zealous Ex 34:14 you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God

Isa 63:14…So You lead your people, to make yourself a glorious name. 15 Look down from heaven, and see from your habitation, holy and glorious. Where are your zeal and your strength, The yearning of your heart and your mercies toward me?

We experience God’s zeal to bless us as we are zealous for Him. (Ps 69:9) Hos 6:3 Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD
