God is: ALL SEEING, ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL and EVERYWHERE PRESENT.
In other words, God is omnipresent!
God knows us, God is with us, and His greatest gift is to allow us to know Him.
(Most of the notes are taken from the Application Bible)
Psalm 139:13-14 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
If you ask the Lord to search your heart and your thoughts and to reveal your sin, you will be continuing in God`s everlasting way. And steadily as you continue to obey God's Word, His Holy Spirit will help you to love as He loves.
The Way of Love
1 Corinthians 13:1-13 'If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.'
The greatest gift “love” v5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, and thinks no evil.
Those who are easily irritated need to remember that perfection exists only in God.
This kind of love goes against our natural inclinations. It is impossible to have this love unless God helps us set aside our own natural desires so that we can love and not expect anything in return.
Thus, the more we become like Jesus, the more love we will show to others.
1 John 4:8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Love is an attribute of God Himself. Love involves unselfish service to others.
