God Is…

I set out to define who God is, by looking for all the “God is” statements in The Bible and low and behold; I found a total of 50 short phrases that nicely define Him.  
Here’s what the doctor prescribes:
  • For a quick pick-me-up read 40-50 because it’s bound to help
  • If you are just curious, read #1 and it will invite you to read more
  • If you want to be surprised, read numbers 13, 18, 21 and 28
  • If you are feeling scared, insecure, confused, alone or in need, read 12, 13, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31, 37, 40, 41 and 47
  • If you’re having a bad day read 25-50, then say thanks to God.
  • If your world is crumbling before your teary eyes, read 1-50, then say a prayer.

  1. Steve,

    Would I be able to share this list with our Sunday school parents through our parent newsletter for July? I think it’d be a great resource for them for simple summer devotions! Thanks much.
