We serve an omnipotent God who is all powerful. God was in the beginning before time began and he spoke the world into existence. God is the creator of everything and he breathed his life into mankind. “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). God created the heavens and the earth and everything that exists comes from God. God spoke and it was so and his words gave life to dead things.
“It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in” (Isaiah 40:22). God is all knowing and he is omnipresent, which means that he is present everywhere at all times. We cannot run or hide from God and there is nothing that we do that God does not see. God is our ever present help in times of trouble and his hands are not too short to save us.
God is loving, faithful and kind and he longs to meet our needs. He sent his only son into the world to die for our sins in order that we can be saved through him. He is a good father who takes care of his children and he keeps his covenant of mercy to us. God will never leave us or forsake us and there is nothing that can separate us from his love. “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there” (Psalm 139:7-8).
God created us in his image and likeness to be in relationship with him. We are nothing without a relationship with God and it is through him that we find our purpose and existence. We are safe when we are close to God so that he can keep us in the shelter of his arms. As we learn more about God and his character, we are able to emulate who God is.
“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men” (John 1:3-4).
