The Attributes of God - Introduction, part 2

Should you decide to go through this study on the attributes of God, you may want to keep a journal on what you are learning. Pay attention to any truths you learn from God's word that reveals a wrong view of God you may have. How will this understanding change the way you think and live?
For example, do you believe God desires for a Godly man to become president but there are not enough Christians voting to elect one into office? Do you believe Satan wins the battle when an ungodly man becomes president? Consider these verses:

Daniel 2:21
"And it is He who changes the times and the epochs;
He removes kings and establishes kings;
He gives wisdom to the wise men,
And knowledge to men of understanding

What we learn here is that God removes presidents and establishes presidents!

Daniel 4:35
"And all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing,
But He does according to His will in the host of heaven
And among the inhabitants of earth;
And no one can ward off His hand
Or say to Him, What hast Thou done?"

No one, including Satan, the liberal media... can thwart God's will!

Read Daniel 3:8-30
What knowledge of God did these three men have that enabled them to do what they did?

In each of the following verses, write down as many truths as you can about God.

Deuteronomy 7:9
Lamentations 3:22-23
1 Chronicles 29:11-12
Psalm 62:11
Psalm 90:2
Deuteronomy 33:27
Psalm 136:1
psalm 139:2-4
John 21:17
Psalm 139:7
Daniel 4:35
2 Chronicles 20:6
Malachi 3:6
Hebrews 13:8
1 John 4:16

Lastly, think of an important issue that is now confronting you in your life. Now, reflect back on what you found to be true of God and apply that truth to your circumstance or trial. If keeping a journal, be sure to record what you are learning.

What's coming next week?
