Step Towards Transformation
God is far too great for us to fully understand. He has no beginning and He has no end. There is no place where His presence is not felt. The Bible asks in Job 11:7:
• Can you fathom the mysteries of God?
• “Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?”
• God lives in Heaven and He rules over the whole earth. The Bible tells us:
• This is what the Lord says: ‘Heaven is my throne and the earth is my foot stool..” (Isa 66:1).
• “God reigns over the nations: God is seated on his holy throne” (Ps 47:8).
In this study we are going to be looking at special truths about God. These are facts about God’s unchanging character. Through these you will understand more of what God is like. You will come to understand god and how He cares for you personally.
A.WHAT IS GOD LIKE?
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb”(Ps 139:13).
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all” (1 Chr 29:11).
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, accordingly to his power that is at work within us” (Eph 3:20).
“..God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything” (1 Jn.3:20).
“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth”. (Ps 145:18).
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are…” (1 Jn 3:1).
B.GOD IS TOO GREAT TO LIVE IN TEMPLES
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earthy and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else…¶’For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring’”. (Acts 17:24,25,28).
D.MAKE A DECISION
Jesus said, “Love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matt 22:37).
The Bible tells us about a man called Joshua. He was a great leader of the nation of Israel.
The people had been wandering for forty years in the wilderness, without a land of their own. Joshua, under God’s direction, led them in victory against the evil nations living in Canaan, and possessed their land for the homeless nation of Israel.
Joshua then challenged all the people to make a decision:
“Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSEHOLD, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD”(Josh 24:15).
The same challenge comes to each of us. Will you make the same commitment as Joshua this day?
This day I give my worship to the only true God of heaven and earth, and surrender my will, my life and possessions to Him. From this day I determine never to worship any other gods.
My worship is for Him only, and I will teach others the truths about God.
