Is He a Loving God?

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 12:50 AM

Seems people believe God does not like them very much. I’ve heard them say when a loved one dies, “It’s God’s will.” Or when a tragedy happens, “Why did God do that?” or “Why did God allow that?” or “I don’t believe in a loving God, because there is so much pain in the world.”


It saddens my heart, because I know God as a loving Father; He protects me and teaches me and walks with me when I go through difficult times. He is the Author of goodness and beauty, but is often accused of authoring ugliness and pain. it’s just not so!


Jesus came to teach us about the Father. He taught us God is good, loving, patient, kind, merciful, and just. In studying His Word, I have found it to be so. When I chose to give my life to Jesus, the truth was revealed and life became much more joy-filled. Do I have challenges? YES! Of course! How can you grow without challenges? But my God always leads the way through them. Can we question God? Yes, by all means! Just wait for and trust in His answer. It eases life and lessens pain; truth may be difficult, but it is oh so freeing.


The devil’s mission is to steal, kill, and destroy. He perverts truth, he lies, and tries every way he can to take us down, and to cause a breach between us and God. Stand in defense of yourself by becoming familiar with the Word and what the Holy Spirit wants to say to you personally. The book Cast Up A Highway is full of Scripture lessons on constructing your own inner spiritual strength. Hold fast to the truth! Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. Begin to reinforce this truth in yourself!!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
