God’s Divine Nature

Standard

Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,

Your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,

Your justice like the ocean depths…

Psalm 36:5-6b (NIV)

Take a moment and meditate on the glorious attributes of our Heavenly Father.  Let the truth of God’s character sink into the crevasses of your mind and penetrate the depths of your heart.  Press the “pause button” on the busyness of your day, and simply reflect on His divine nature.

  • God’s unfailing love for you is everlasting; it is as vast as the heavens.  He has loved you before the beginning of time, and will love you into eternity.  He is the God of all Comfort who is kind and compassionate.
  • The Lord’s perfect faithfulness is forever; He is trustworthy, and His Word is reliable and true.  He always keeps His promises.
  • God’s righteousness is as majestic as the highest mountain peaks.  He is holy and pure.
  • The expanse of the Lord’s justice and fairness is comparable to the deepest depths of the ocean.

Even though we could never come close in comparison to the divine nature of our Heavenly Father, God has bridged the gap between our imperfection and His holy perfection.   Because of His grace, mercy and eternal love for us, He gave us His Son as an unblemished sacrifice for our wrongdoings, so that we may live with Him forever in Heaven.  Jesus is the Righteousness of God.  If we simply believe in Jesus, we are covered in His righteousness and adopted into His kingdom as children of God.  The Lord longs for you to spend eternity with Him, and He offers you the free gift of everlasting life through His son Jesus Christ. That’s a promise that you can hold onto for all of eternity.

 …“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.  Jeremiah 31:3a

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”  John 3:16

“And He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The Lord, The Lord, compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands and forgiving wickedness and rebellion and sin.'”  Exodus 34: 6 – 7
