God’s attributes

God is wonderful in counsel

We know that God is the “Wonderful Counsellor” (Is 9:6), but we often take that to be a mere spiritual comfort rather than a practical call to listen and follow His instruction. Perhaps the most beautiful description of God’s wisdom and counsel is this: This also comes from the LORD of hosts;he is wonderful in […]

God’s common love

God’s love is often referred to as ‘common grace’. The nuances of the various terms are subtle, but important. Although very few resources can be found on God’s love for unbelievers, resources abound on common grace and providence. This does not mean, however, that God’s love is only limited to the elect and that His […]

Why we worship God

God is in control of absolutely everything. The simplest statement of it is Psalm 115:3 Our God is in the heavens;He does all that He pleases. […]

The sympathy of God’s empathy

Psalm 103:14 is perhaps one of the most direct statements on God’s empathy with us. For he knows our frame;he remembers that we are dust. Psalm 103:14 (ESV) God knows that we are not everything that He is. We are not perfectly holy. We are not almighty. We are not all-knowing. We are not perfectly […]
