For some time now (having been encouraged by a sister in the Lord in our church), I have been forming a "My God Is" list. The purpose of this list is to intentionally place the focus of my mind and heart upon that which is true, honorable, upright, etc (Philippians 4:8). This morning, I found myself in Psalm 25 and the qualities and attributes of God were jumping off the page left and right. Here are those I found in two readings.
MY GOD IS...
- trustworthy (v. 1)
- the rewarder of those who wait for Him (v. 3)
- faithful to guide His own (vv. 4-5, 10, 12)
- the God of my salvation (v. 5b)
- compassionate (v. 6)
- filled with lovingkindness (grace) (v. 6)
- forgiving...He remembers me, but not my sin!! (vv. 7, 11, 18)
- good (v. 8)
- upright (v. 8)
- the instructor of sinners (v. 8)
- provider of justice for the humble (v. 9)
- teacher of the humble (v. 9)
- companion of the lonely (v. 16)
- caretaker of the afflicted (v. 16)
- guardian and deliverer (v. 20)
- a refuge (v. 20)
- Redeemer (v. 22)
What an incredible Psalm! I encourage you to spend time meditating on the attributes of God revealed in Psalm 25 and begin your own "My God Is..." list.
