Yesterday afternoon I pulled out my Bible and a highlighter and sat down with a plan in mind. I’ve been reading through the Old Testament this year – I’m in Ezekiel right now. But back when I was in the book of Isaiah, I began to specifically notice many descriptions of the God give throughout the book. And so my plan yesterday was to highlight each of those descriptions of His character and attributes. It was a really amazing sort of study to do, that left completely amazed at the greatness and awesomeness of God! I wanted to share with you all some of the descriptions I came across.
“To whom then will you liken Me that I would be his equal?” says the Holy One. Lift your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of His might and the strength of His power, not one of them is missing.” (40:25-26)
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable.” (40:28)
“I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” (43:3)
“Before me, there was no God formed , and there will be none after me. I, even I, am the Lord, and there is no savior besides Me.” (43:10-11)
“I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all my good pleasure’. ” (46:9-10)
” ‘ My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.’ ” (55:8-9)
“But now O Lord, You are our Father, we are the clay and You our potter; and all of us are the work of Your hands.” (64:8)
