Fundamental Truths About God

Going through some old papers, I came across some notes I took somewhere at some distance time in the past called “Fundamental Truths About God”.  I am not certain where they originated, but I thought I would share them because they are so helpful in thinking about Who God is.  So here are 15 fundamental truths about God:

  1. God knows everything (Hebrews 4:13; John 2:24; Romans 1:20; Matthew 12:25; I John 3:20; Job 26:6, 34:21; Psalm 139; Proverbs 15:3; Isaiah 44:7; Ezekiel 11:5).
  2. God is unchanging (Numbers 23, 19; Isaiah 1:17, 15:29, 45:19; Psalm 33:11, 119:89; Malachi 3:6; Acts 4:28; Ephesians 1:4; Hebrews 1:12, 6:17, 13:8).
  3. God created everything (Genesis 1:1-31; Psalm 100:3; Revelation 4:11).
  4. God loved me and sent His Son to die for me (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:4-10; I Timothy 1:15-17).
  5. God hates sin (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12; Romans 1:18, 6:23).
  6. God is merciful and just (2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Titus 3:4-5; James 5:11).
  7. God is powerful (Ephesians 1:19-21; Hebrews 1:1-3; 2 Peter 1:3; Revelation 15:8; Romans 1:20).
  8. Through Christ I can approach God (I Timothy 1:5-7; Hebrews 4:14-16, 10:19-25; I Peter 1:17-21).
  9. God desires a relationship with me (I John 1:5-7, 3:1-3; Ephesians 2:19-22; Philippians 2:14-16).
  10. God has a plan for my life…to do His will (I Thessalonians 5:16-18; James 4:15; Hebrews 10:36; Romans 8:28; Ephesians 1:18, 2:10; Philippians 2:13, 3:10-14).
  11. God is patient (Exodus 34:6; Numbers 14:18; Psalm 78:38, 86:15, 103:8, 145:8; I Peter 3:20; Isaiah 42:14; Romans 2:4, 3:15, 9:22-24; 2 Peter 3:9).
  12. God chose me. I didn’t choose God (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5; Romans 3:10-12, 8:28-30; Colossians 1:19-23, 2:13-15, 3:12; Titus 3:4-7).
  13. God is holy (I Peter 1:15-16; Leviticus 11:44-45, 19:2, 20:7; Revelation 15:4).
  14. God will meet my needs (Philippians 4:19; Isaiah 55:1-3, 54:5; 2 Corinthians 12:9).
  15. God is light and in Him is no darkness (I John 1:5).

This list is by no means comprehensive, but hopefully it inspires you to explore a little more about the nature of God as He discloses more about Himself in His Word.
