Characteristics of God

from Psalm 145

Who God is, What God is, What God does

The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in love (verse 8)

The Lord is good to all, he has compassion on all he has made (verse 9)

The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving towards all he has made (verse 13)

The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down (verse 14)

The Lord is righteous in all his ways (verse 17)

The Lord is near to all who call on him (verse 18)

The Lord watches over all who love him (verse 20)

He gives food at the proper time (verse 15)

Satisfies the desires of every living thing (verse 16)

Fulfills desires of those who fear him (verse 19)

Hears our cry and saves us (verse 19)

Who God is
Slow to anger
Rich in love
Faithful to his promises
Righteous in all his ways

What God does
Good to all
Has compassion on all he made
Loving to all he made
Upholds those who fall
Lifts those bowed down
Near to those that call on him
Watches over those that love him
Provides needs
Satisfies/fulfills our desires

He is our all; he is our everything

We just need to meditate on his greatness, penetrate our hearts with his word and trust him explicitly and completely.

He is more than enough.


  1. Great post, and comforting verses that I needed to see today. Thank you.

  2. I've been singing, "more than all I want, more than all I need. You are more than enough for me," since reading this earlier today.

  3. I have a question for you that has nothing to do with today's post. I'd just like your opinion. Why do people say that Satan is always working among us? Satan was defeated by Christ. Does he still have some power I don't understand? I've never been able to find anyone who would address this question. Maybe it's because nobody knows or because people like saying that Satan is among us or because it's a stupid question. I don't know.
