God Is Our Father, and Governs Himself Accordingly


God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. He is all-powerful and invincible.

~ Lisa Blair

God is omnipotent. He is all-powerful and invincible. He created us and gave us life. He imparted free-will, empowering us to make our own decisions, and as humans, we regularly make decisions that are not in harmony with God’s nature. But our loving God does not retaliate. God cannot make decrees that exist outside of His nature.

We lie to protect ourselves and others, to hide truths, or to convince the world that we are something that we are not. God cannot lie, because to do so is in opposition to His nature. God is truth.

Even when we are unfaithful to ourselves, others, and most importantly to Him, God remains faithful. God is not human. He does not have a sin nature like we do and cannot be unfaithful to us. He is God.

During times such as these, we cannot become doubtful about who God is to us.  God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. Now is not the time to question His authority because the world is wrought with a global pandemic. God is present in the midst of it all – where there is wickedness, God is present and prevails; where there are famine and homelessness, God is present and prevails; where there are illnesses, disease, and death, God is present and prevails.

God can do anything He pleases as long as it is in harmony with His nature.

God cannot lie. He cannot do anything that is in opposition to His nature.

When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself. Hebrews 6:13 NIV

God cannot approve of or overlook evil left unchecked. He cannot look at wickedness and allow it to exist in the universe in its original form. 

Your eyes are too pure to approve evil, And You cannot look on wickedness with favor.  Habakkuk 1:13 NASB

God cannot be unfaithful. He cannot deny Himself.

If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself. 2 Timothy 2:13 NIV

God can do anything that is in His nature. God cannot lie. God cannot overlook evil and wickedness. He cannot be unfaithful, and He cannot deny Himself. God commands us to be strong and courageous. He does not want us to be afraid or panic. For the Lord, our God will personally go ahead of us. He will neither fail us nor abandon us. He is present and will see us through all circumstances in life. He cannot forsake us; it is outside the harmony of His nature. (Paraphrased, Deuteronomy 31:6 NLT)
