The Attributes of God

Another possibility? List the attributes of God going through the alphabet, from A to Z.

    • Yes, Vera Faye Brown, that pretty much describes our great God!

  1. Wow…I love this. I was searching for something about God and who he is. I ran across this. This is more than what I expected to find. On my Facebook page I’m trying encourage people to pray and looking for something to write about the God we are praying to. This was perfect. Thank you. Grace and peace be unto you.

    • Praise God, Paulette, that you are using your Facebook page to encourage people to pray. We are more likely to pray as we get to know our great and awesome God who wants to be in a relationship with us. He is so worthy of our love and devotion. This is the kind of God we can trust with our deepest thoughts, and with our very life. This is the kind of God we should want to spend time with.

  2. Thank you for all of the attributes of God I know that they are too many to count. I love this for starters. I took time to write it all down and to meditate on all the scriptures along with it. You are a Blessing to me. Thank you for taking the time out to spread the word of God. God bless you. With Love your sister in Jesus Christ. Marlene 💕

    • You are welcome, Marlene. And, you are so right that there are many more attributes about God. May God use the time you spend meditating on who He is to bolster an even greater faith in the One who is not only able to “do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Eph. 3:20) but “is” so great our minds can only begin to comprehend the fullness of who He is.
