What Manner of Man is This?

First off, I’m sorry for neglecting this blog so much lately. There’s been a lot going on (I know that’s my excuse every time, but… just believe me), and I haven’t had much to write about. However, I found something to share today. It’s just a little something, but hopefully it will encourage you as it does me.

I was flipping through the Psalms this afternoon and writing down attributes and characteristics, I suppose would be the right words, of God. We as Christians hear that we serve a God like no other, but we don’t completely understand what that means, especially if you’ve grown up in the same circles as me. Our God is truly unlike any other god of any other religion. These things are just from the few Psalms I read through, and this is only a small list; there is so much more we could say about our God, but hopefully this is enough to put us in awe of who He is.

What kind of God do we serve, who:

  • Pardons sins
  • Forgives transgressions
  • Does not stay angry
  • Delights in showing mercy
  • Is forgiving
  • Is good
  • Is abounding in love to all who call to Him
  • Answers when we call
  • Is great
  • Is God alone
  • Is faithful
  • Delivers us from the depths
  • Is compassionate
  • Is gracious
  • Is slow to anger
  • Helps and comforts me
  • Redeems our lives
  • Crowns us with love and compassion
  • Satisfies our desires with good things
  • Works righteousness and justice for the oppressed
  • Does not always accuse
  • Does not treat us as our sins deserve
  • Loves those who fear Him as high as the heavens are from the earth
  • Removes our transgressions as far from us as the east is from the west
  • Is clothed with splendor and majesty
  • Covers us with His wings
  • Gives salvation
  • Is strength
  • Is with us
  • Is our refuge and ever-present help in trouble
  • Is our shield
  • Delivers us from all our fears
  • Is close to the brokenhearted
  • Saves those who are crushed in spirit
  • Turns our wailing into dancing and clothes us in joy
  • Comforts us as we walk through the valley of the shadow of death
  • Is the King of glory
  • Gives victory
  • Rescues us because He delights in us
  • Never forgets the needy
  • Encourages the afflicted and listens to their cry
  • Defends the fatherless and the oppressed

 

Now, tell me about another god who is anything like this. You can’t. We serve an amazing Father; He is God alone.
