God Jireh Character Analysis

Decent Essays
Although The character of God is autonomously far beyond our ability to comprehend entirely who He is, through the Word of God and one’s experiences we come to know unambiguous facts about Him that make know His character in a distinct and personal way. There are many attributes of God that reveal His character in special ways. For instance, God is Jehovah, the name of the independent, and a self-complete being. God is Jehovah-M’Kaddesh “the God who sanctifies.” God is infinite, which means that God is beyond measurement. God is love and God’s love is so great that He gave His Only Son. God is Jehovah-jireh, “the God who provides.” God is Jehovah-shalom, “the God of peace.” God is immutable, meaning God is ever perfect and unchanging. God …show more content…
I am forever grateful that Jesus found me, saved me, and set me free; and during life’s ups and downs that same sovereignty and goodness has sustained me. Sovereignty is “the attribute by which He rules His entire creation.” It is the application of His other attributes of being all-knowing and all-powerful. God is in control of everything that happens, and it makes Him free to do what He knows to be best. When we experience life’s ups and downs we can’t see or understand the purpose for what God allows, but God is God and He knows what is best for us even when it looks horrible. Romans 8:28 says, “and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” One can depend on this scripture because God is a God who is good. God is the embodiment of perfect goodness, and is kind, benevolent, and full of good will toward all creation. I have come to experience God’s goodness, and I can testify to it. Today, I love God with my whole heart. I m whole and my past doesn’t define my present or my future. I am a mother to two of the most adorable, intelligent, kind, and loving girls that a mother could have asked for. My oldest name is Kayla, and she is seven years old. Sky my youngest who we affectionately called Baby, and she is five years old. I am also a wife to a wonderful man who loves God, his wife and his …show more content…
I lived amidst situations that people wouldn’t be able to recover from, and I endured pain that could have taken me off course, and at times it did, intending to destroy my future. I could write pages and pages of heartbreak, disappointment, devastation and loss that I have endured in life, I 'm sure most people could say the same thing. However, it is my belief that there is purpose in pain and God orchestrates it all. All my trails are a testimony to God’s Character and attributes. Without those personal experiences, I wouldn’t have a story, but the important part is not only the story but the testimonies of my many victories through Christ. Now I can boast of God as father, God as a healer, His sovereignty and goodness. I now live my life created from a statement that neurosurgeon Dr. Leaf said in her book, Who Switched Off My Brain. She said, “God has given each individual gift but our gifts aren’t a talent or a skill like singing, dancing, preaching, acting, and anything else that we do well, that is a manifestation of a gift. The true gift is how you uniquely think to manifest that gift.” I know there are people in this world trying to cope with life; people who are broken, hurting, angry, and letting life prevail instead of allowing God to reign over their life. There is purpose that is produced from pain,

    All three persons come from the same essence of God equally. For example, all three persons are love and no person loves more than another person. When one speaks of one of God’s qualities, he speaks of God Himself. All three persons are their quality and of their quality. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the light.” And again, Holy Scriptures say Christ is called “the power of God, and the wisdom of God.” The Son is wisdom of wisdom in the same way he is light of light, God of God.…

    God promises in John 3:16 eternal life, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (NIV). The Christian worldview teaches us that God is love and that we must be the same way. Christians are given the hope by leaning on God for his strength instead of our own. God promises to never leave us. The most confusing thing about Christianity is that one is to have faith in someone that cannot be seen.…

    The Bible defines God as good when it states “For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations” (Psalm 100:5). The essential question of Theodicy, or divine justice, requires a deity that is wholly good and just. The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy puts forth a few different reasons for why a just God would allow suffering (Theodicy. 1999). It states that a good God might allow suffering because some evils may be logically necessary for greater goods.…
