"When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? 8:3-4

There are three primary ways God reveals His love to the world. First, is His creation! Sort of hard to miss that unless you REALLY aren’t paying attention! If He DOES get your attention through His amazing creation then you will want to learn more about Him!
One of the ways that God reveals His love through creation is that He created His best! When it was done and He looked at it all he loved it, too, saying, “That’s good!”
And then, He created the earth to be a home for us. On that earth He created a beautiful garden just for man. He put people in families so they could share their homes and enjoy their homes. When Jesus told His disciples He was leaving earth to go back to His Father He reassured them by promising He would go and build a home for them in Heaven. Homes are important to God because that is where love is shared! Homes are what you build for people you love!
Second, God reveals His love through His nature. We already get a few glimpses into His nature through His creation, but we learn a lot more about Who He is through the study of His Word!

He Is Holy

Isaiah saw God "high and lifted up" in Isaiah 6 and John saw a revelation of a holy God is Revelation 4!

He Is All-Powerful
Moses saw the power of God for Israel when He opened the Red Sea and He saw the power of God against the enemy when the sea closed over the Egyptian army.

Joshua saw the power of God when the walls of Jericho crumbled.

He Is All-Knowing

Job 37:16 - "Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who is perfect in knowledge?"

Psalm 147:9 - "Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit."

He Is Everlasting

Psalm 106:48 - “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting!"

I Timothy 1:17 - “Glory and honor to God forever and ever. He is the eternal King, the unseen one who never dies; he alone is God”

He Is Just
Numbers 14:18- "The LORD is slow to anger & abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity & transgression but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generations."

Wow! What a God!

Because He is perfect and holy and eternal you can trust His love! And you can be sure that His love will always be available to you and exactly what you need!

Will you trust Him love?

Will you receive it?
