Getting the Picture One Frame at a Time

I hesitate when I begin talking about the different attributes of God. Why? Because every time I begin to look at one, I find that I have to look at another, and another, and another. You just can't pick and choose. You can't cut and paste those things you'll like and disregard those things you don't understand or aren't sure you like.


Think in terms of photography.


I have a few photographs of our visit to the Grand Canyon on January 1st, 2006. These pictures just don't do it justice. Let's admit it right now... a snapshot doesn't ever tell the full story. But, it does help us capture some of the essence and attributes of a place, person, or experience.


Together we are going to build a picture of God, one frame at a time as we consider attribute, after attribute, after attribute.

So, let's begin.

Rehearsing the attributes of God is a great way to allow us to be more aware of God's constant presence in our lives. As we pray and meditate on God, we will be reminded of Who we are in conversation with and we will find encouragement for our heart and mind as we come before Him.


Look at Revelation 21 verses 5-7. In these verses, we see a glimpse of the story of God's plan.

"It is finished! I am the Alpha and Omega--the beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children."


God is worthy of our praise and I believe when we give Him praise and honor something amazing and beyond this world happens.

"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty-- the one who always was, who is, and who is to come." Revelation 4:8


What verses do you tend to go to when you think of offering God "honor and praise"?
