God never fails3

GOD NEVER FAILS

GOD is Omnipotent

  • This term refers to the all powerful nature of God. Looking at Webster again, this is defined as “almighty power; unlimited or infinite power; a word in strictness applicable only to God.” He is the all-powerful Lord who has created all things and sustains them by His Word


God never fails4

GOD NEVER FAILS

God is Omnipresent

  • Present everywhere at the same time

  • He is present everywhere in the universe. No one can hide from Him and nothing escapes His notice."

GOD NEVER FAILS

GOD is Omniscient:

  • This term refers to the all knowing nature of God. Webster defines it as “the quality of knowing all things at once; universal knowledge; knowledge unbounded or infinite.” He knows our very thoughts, our feelings, our desires and our needs. He knows our words before we say them and he knows our thoughts before we think them. He knows all of our ways.


God never fails6

GOD NEVER FAILS

Love

  • "He who does not love does not know God, for God is love." 1 John 4:8 (NKJV) God is concerned for his creatures, and especially his people. He is tender toward them, and does not take pleasure in their suffering or condemnation. He seeks the best for us, and he offers up his Son in love as a substitution for sin. God loves us so much that He gave His Son for us.

GOD NEVER FAILS

Sovereign

  • To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that God is God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, doing according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, so that none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doest Thou? (Dan. 4:35).

  • To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in Heaven and earth, so that none can defeat His counsels, defeat His purpose, or resist His will (Psa. 115:3).

GOD NEVER FAILS

Sovereign

The Sovereignty of God is the biblical teaching that all things are under God's rule and control, and that nothing happens without His direction or permission. God works not just some things but all things according to the counsel of His own will (see Eph. 1:11). His purposes are all-inclusive and never defeated (see Isa. 46:11); nothing takes Him by surprise.


God never fails9

GOD NEVER FAILS

  • All moments of your life, He has appointed in His sovereignty so that He may be glorified and so that you can experience His goodness.

GOD NEVER FAILS

  • Some other Characteristics of God


God never fails11

GOD NEVER FAILS

Eternal

  • God exists forever, meaning he has no beginning or end (cf. Psalm 90:2; 1 Tim. 1:17). He has always existed in the same way: fully and completely as God. "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!" (Revelation 4:8)

    True

  • God is the true God whose knowledge & words are both true and the final standard of truth.


God never fails12

GOD NEVER FAILS

Holiness

  • "To say that God is holy is to say that He is eternally separate and distinct from all impurity. The term holiness in Hebrew, qodesh, has the notion of separation, of uniqueness, of one-of-a-kindness." -Bruce Ware

    Unchanging

  • Also called immutability, this means that God never changes in his being (who he is) or promises (cf. Mal.3:6; James 1:17; Heb. 6:17).


God never fails13

GOD NEVER FAILS

Compassionate

  • He is not overwhelmed by any emotion, he is not incapacitated or weakened or stifled by any event or any amount of grief or love. Rather, God is totally self-controlled. While God does grieve, and does passionately love, he does so completely on purpose.

  • Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They as renewed every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. Lam. 3:23-24


God never fails14

GOD NEVER FAILS

All-wise

  • God has all wisdom. He works everything out for the good of his people, and for the display and enjoyment of his glory. This involves countless factors and people and events and decisions and all sorts of things that would drown any strategist. But not God.


God never fails15

GOD NEVER FAILS

  • Even when things look the worst, God is carrying out his perfect wisdom. He never fails, never lacks any foresight, and never estimates. He knows all, and plans all, and He loves to display the glory and beauty of His wisdom by accomplishing the seemingly impossible.


God never fails16

GOD NEVER FAILS

Self-existent

  • God's self-existence means that he does not need us or the rest of creation for anything. While everything other than God depends on God for everything, God depends on no one for existence. He is absolute reality, with whom we have to reckon. St. John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”


God never fails17

GOD NEVER FAILS

Self-sufficient

  • "The Scriptures speak to the fact that God does not need anything that we humans need to survive. He requires no water, air, food, sleep or money. Counselors, supervisors, and advisors of any kind are of no need to Him.

  • He is self sufficient in all capacities this is hard for the human brain to consider, that someone does not need what we do to survive but He doesn’t" Ps. 121-He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.


God never fails18

GOD NEVER FAILS

Immaterial

  • God is not fundamentally composed of matter, for he is spirit, and he created all matter (and all spirit other than himself). This does not mean that God is absolutely nothing ("immateriality" as a word can sometimes mean this), rather it means that God is nothing physical. "The true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:23-24)


God never fails19

GOD NEVER FAILS

Gracious

  • God loves to give us what we don't deserve. He loves to pardon sin and lavish us with his goodness. He takes pleasure in giving gifts to people to display the glory of his resourcefulness, patience, and mercy. Eph. 1:7 (NKJV)- In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the good pleasure of His will.


God never fails20

GOD NEVER FAILS

Merciful

  • God shows his mercy by not giving us the punishment we deserve. Mercy as used in the Bible frequently has a much wider sense which may be translated "loyal love". Ps. 100:5 For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.

    Just

  • God is deeply concerned with making wrongs right. He lets no sinner off the hook without a fitting punishment, or a fitting substitutionary atonement. I John 1:9-If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
