Thinking About Who God Is

Yesterday during service I got super convicted about something. We were singing a song all about who God is and His attributes and it hit me. Lately, all I think about is myself. All I think about is how God can help me, and what is He doing to serve me. Wow, what a wrong way of thinking. God was not made to serve me, He created me to serve Him. I had things all kinds of mixed up. Lately all I an think about is myself and its so wrong. Instead of thinking about myself and how God can serve me, I need to be thinking about God and how I can live my life to serve Him. I wanted to spend some time thinking about who God is, and His attributes. I wanted to post some attributes for you to read. This list is not of my creation, though I did edit it some, but you can find it here.

God is Jehovah. This means "I am I AM"

God is Jehovah-M’Kaddesh. This name means “the God who sanctifies.”

God is infinite.

God is omnipotent. God has all power.

God is good.

God is love.

God is Jehovah-jireh. This name means “the God who provides.”

God is Jehovah-shalom. This name means “the God of peace.”

God is immutable. God cannot change.

God is transcendent.

God is just.

God is holy.

God is Jehovah-rophe. 

God is omniscient. God is all knowning.

God is omnipresent. God is everywhere.

God is merciful.

God is sovereign.

God is Jehovah-nissi. This name means “God our banner.” \

God is wise.

God is faithful. 

God is full of grace.

 God is our Comforter.

God is El-Shaddai. This name means “God Almighty.”

God is Adonai. This name means “Master” or “Lord.”

God is Elohim. This name means “Strength” or “Power.”

I wanted to post some songs about God and songs that have helped me think more about God, and not myself. They are all about God and who He is.
