God is Sovereign – What That Means & Why We Care

God is Sovereign - What That Means & Why We Care (via www.JeanWilund.com)

God is Sovereign


If God isn’t sovereign over all, He isn’t sovereign at all.

I’m clearly not God because no matter how I try, I’m not sovereign over anything. At all.

I might determine to simply walk across the room, but any number of scenarios could stop me.

I could trip and knock myself out.

I could get distracted on my side of the room by a slice of blueberry lemon cake and a cup of coffee. The cup of coffee by itself would do it.

A tornado could rip through my house and send me into my neighbor’s kitchen.

I should be able to walk across the room unimpeded, but I can’t guarantee it because I’m not sovereign, but God is.

What Does Sovereign Mean?

God is Eternal (From the Never-Ending, Ever-Growing List of the Character Traits of God)

They say,” Nothing lasts forever.” 

They are wrong. 

Three things last forever:

God,

His Word, 

and People.

These three live forever, but one of these things is not like the other, as in eternal from eternity past into eternity future.

Let’s take a look. [Read more…]

God is Love

God is love, but that doesn’t mean it’s all rainbows, butterflies, and cotton candy all the time.

Actually, now that I think about it, a rainbow comes after a rain, a butterfly is born out of a struggle, and cotton candy is sugar that’s been melted down and spun wildly.

So maybe God’s love is rainbows, butterflies, and cotton candy — worth every storm, struggle, or meltdown we experience. [Read more…]

God is Supreme (from The Never-Ending, Ever-Growing List of the Character Traits of God)

 God is Supreme (From The Never-Ending, Ever-Growing List of the Character Traits of God) via www.JeanWilund.comWho’s Supreme This Week?

The College Football Playoff Committee deliberated for hours. Last night they presented their decision on who’s supreme on November 1, 2016.

Alabama is the supreme college football team in the nation. This week.

Next week it could be Clemson (Yay!) or Michigan. Or an unexpected sleeper school. It just depends on how the teams perform and the committee looks at their performance and talent.

Thankfully that’s not the way God works. There’s no committee to determine who’s supreme in the universe this week.

God alone is supreme forever.

GOD IS SUPREME

To say that God is supreme means no one and nothing is greater than God. No one even matches Him.

He’s it — The Supreme One.

Could Be A Problem For Us

“Once upon an always there was God.”

   ~ Brittany Wilund, age 12

That, my friends, is probably the best way to introduce this never-ending, ever-growing list of the character traits of God: From eternity to eternity God was, is, and always will be.

And we need to know Him.

And we all will. But the sooner the better. Much better.

Since we never really know someone apart from knowing their character, we need to know God’s character.

In fact, we need to train ourselves to intentionally remember God’s character if we’re going to trust Him before the moment we desperately need to trust Him crashes down on us. 

But we can’t remember what we don’t know. 

I learned that in school. My test grades proved the theory.

How would you like THE complete, exhaustive list of every single character trait of God? I would, but who could do that?

If God were small enough to be fully known,

He wouldn’t be big enough to be God.

I can’t publish THE complete list, so I’m doing the next best thing. I’m sharing The Never-Ending, Ever-Growing List of the Character Traits of God. 

Let’s get started with our first character trait — the first of many more to come in future blog posts:
