The Character Of God Revealed In The Bible

More than anything else, God longs for each and every one of us to Know Him. These passages of Scripture are some of the ones that I have found that reveal the character of God.

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” ~ A.W. Tozer

Here, listed in no particular order, are Scriptures revealing the Character of God.

These are things God wanted us to know about Himself. Every one of these passages contain thoughts formed in the Mind of God in eternity past. He put these thoughts into the minds of various writers of Scripture for our benefit, so that we could come to know Him.

15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. (Psalm 86:15)

What The Scripture Above Says About The Character of God:

  • God is a God of mercy
  • He is also gracious toward you
  • Even when you make a mess of things, God’s anger doesn’t go instantly to full boil as people do
  • God loves you more than you can even imagine. And why not? After all, He created you. You are His masterpiece.
  • And His love is “steadfast”; it never wavers. He is faithful to you.

9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations, (Deuteronomy 7:9)

What The Scripture Above Says About The Character of God:

  • He is the one and only God
  • He is faithful toward you
  • A contract can be broken; a covenant cannot be broken.
  • Here again, His love love is “steadfast”; it never wavers.
  • But there is a condition: those who keep His commandments
  • And look at the outcome: a thousand generations

21 But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
26 It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
(Lamentations 3:21~26)

9 remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ”˜My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
11 calling a bird of prey from the east,the man of my counsel from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I will do it. (Isaiah 46:9~11)

4 From of old no one has heard or perceived by the ear, no eye has seen a God besides you, who acts for those who wait for him. (Isaiah 64:4)

28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

28 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:32)

11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16:11)

4 Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4)

12 Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12)

17 So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. (James 4:17)

8 but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. 9  With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. 10  From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. (James 3:8~10)

Do you see what I mean? Every one of those Scriptures reveal something of the character of God.

These are just a few. I will be adding many more to this list.

      Hi, Mark. I’m delight to see that you got home safely, and I’m pleased that you took the time to go online and look me up. It would have been easy to forget all about it. But you didn’t let the devil disrupt your thoughts.
      I enjoyed meeting you, even as I helped you got your trailer back on the road. Good thing I had a wrench that fit your need.

    Dear Michael, You mentioned that you have been in the valley for six years now. I hope that I am not intruding by asking what you mean by this. You see, my church says that we are, from birth, in the valley. I am just seeking out your perspective. Respectfully, Catherine

    Dear Jan, I have been meaning to comment. It seems to me that everything you write gathers us back in to seek more. I love your vast knowledge of the Bible. I love that you share favorite Scriptures with us. I think you are such a wondrous teacher and a great friend to the —not quite sure what to do —- Christians, such as myself. I can’t wait for you to share more of your list. God Bless and Keep You Always !
