A few things I know about God but sometimes forget.

January 1, 2012

Okay, the following is not original.  It comes from Matthew Henry’s Exposition of the Old and New Testaments.  I think you might like the reminder.  I did.

So here are a few thoughts about God that might help us with our thoughts about ourselves.  And our prayers.  The bold type is Matthew Henry’s commentary.   I have added a minor thought or two.

 God is infinitely strong and can do all that he pleases,     Anything he wants to do he can do.  And he does do.

God is infinitely righteous so that he only does what is right,    Everything he does is the right thing to do.  As a reminder to us…the right thing to do is always the right thing to do.  Always.

 God is  infinitely good so that everything he does is perfectly good,     Not just sometimes good, infinitely, perfectly good.

God is infinitely wise so that he always knows perfectly what is right and good,     And he helps me make the wise choice.

God is infinitely loving so that in all his strength and righteousness and goodness and wisdom he raises the eternal joy of his loved ones as high as it can be raised.

I can trust him no matter what.
