Start giving 86 seconds of undivided attention to Jesus today.
Do we truly believe that God sees and knows everything, including our hidden pains and even our deepest thoughts? Because he has complete knowledge of his whole creation, he plans its path with intimate care. This knowledge should be a great comfort to us because nothing we think, say or do can surprise God.
God is all powerful. No barriers exist between what he wills and it being accomplished. Believers may easily agree with this view, but few understand the true significance of it for their relationship with God. Understanding his power gives us security in God's plans and purposes for the our lives and the world.
What do we mean when we claim that God is sovereign? Gary Wilkerson contends that many believers say that God is sovereign but live as if God and Satan are equally powerfully forces or as if they are partially sovereign with God. This mentality is not biblical, and our spiritual lives will be much healthier with a correct view of God's sovereignty.
God is perfect. He has no shortcomings or failings. That is why he calls us to put him before everything else in life. He is the highest good that we can pursue. Our corrupt, sinful nature made a relationship with God impossible, but Jesus' impeccability allowed him to pay the price for our sin and paved a way for us to know the Lord.
God is infinite. This means that all of his attributes are as well. We share some of his attributes, but we are limited. Our love, holiness and kindness fall short all too often. God is the only being without measurable proportions, and his grandeur calls us to search his depths, knowing that there is no end to his goodness.
God is immutable. He never changes. As relationships with others shift because of life’s changes, we can be certain that God never does.
God is big enough to meet our every need. That’s one attribute in which all believers should rejoice.
The ‘simplicity’ of God doesn’t mean that God is easy to understand or isn’t complex. Far from it, actually. This week in 86 Seconds, Gary Wilkerson unpacks God’s simplicity and how this should impact our lives.
God needs nothing and no one. He is fulfilled in himself. Understanding this principle is key to knowing God and importantly, knowing ourselves. More on God’s self-fulfillment on this week’s 86 seconds with Gary Wilkerson.
