Who is My God? Who am I in Relation to God?

A few verses I have appreciated using recently for reflecting on the character of God and what that means for me.

Psalm 135:5-7 “For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the Lord pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses.”

2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”

Psalm 30:2 “O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.”

Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”

Psalm 119:11 “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”

Jeremiah 23:23-24 “Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away? Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.”

1 Peter 24:24-25 “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass whithers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever. And this word was the good news that was preached to you.”

Psalm 73:28 “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works.”

Isaiah 50:7 “But the Lord God helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.”

1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.”

Lamentations 3:22-23 “The steadfast love of our Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
