What is God like?

What is God like? Is it His nature to release favor, abundance and blessing to His people? Or does He like to put them through difficult test over and over again just to see how much they can stand? We need to look at what says about Himself to know the answer.

Ephesians 1:3 says “Blessed be the  God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ.”

This verse tells us that we are in Christ so every blessing He has we have available to us.

Luke 12:32 “Do not be afraid little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.” So we need to know what is in God’s Kingdom, but we also need to know what is not allowed in His Kingdom, like sickness, hatred, poverty and death.

Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” These verses are just as much for you and I as they were for the ones who wrote them down!

These thoughts are from a class I have been teaching for the past six weeks called Momentum – what God starts never stops; based on the book by Bill and Eric Johnson.
