Meditation on God’s Character

You are slow to anger and great in steadfast love. 
You are perfectly loving.
You are love.
You are good to all and you desire all to be saved.
You give your only begotten Son so that all who believe in him have everlasting life.
You do not delight in the death of the wicked, but in their repentance. 
You give Your life as a ransom for many.

You are almighty.
Nothing is too hard for You.
Nothing is impossible for You.

You know everything.
You see everything.
Everything is naked and exposed before You.
Everything is revealed to You.

You are everywhere.
There is no place I can escape from Your presence.
There is no place where You do not reign.

You are the provider.
You provide for all my needs.
You give me everything I need and much more to spare.
My cup overflows.
Every good thing comes from You and there is nothing that is good that doesn’t come from You. 

When we are faithless You remain faithful.
Great is your faithfulness.
You convict the world of sin and righteousness.
You are merciful.
A broken and contrite heart You will not despise.
You show mercy for Your own sake.
You delight to show mercy.
You give your only begotten Son so that anyone who believes in Him would have everlasting life.
You gave your life for the sake of our forgiveness. 
You welcome back the faithless with open arms.
You seek after the lost and gather them to Yourself. 
You rejoice more over the returned lost than over the many righteous.

The rich, the powerful and the intelligent fall before You.
You lift up the poor, the stupid and the weak. 
No one can boast before you. 
You preach good news to the poor. 
You cast out demons and heal all who ask you.
A Father to the fatherless and a protector of widows are You in Your holy dwelling.
You settle the solitary in a home and lead the prisoners out to prosperity.
You set the captives free. 
You comfort those who mourn. 
You are close to the brokenhearted. 
You invite the weary and heavy laden to take up Your easy yoke and Your light burden. 
Those who wait on You will soar like eagles. 

You are our protector.
If a thousand fall on my side, and ten thousand at my right hand, it will not come near me.
Your angels will bear me up so that I will not strike my foot against a stone. 
You deliver me from danger for the glory of Your name. 
If God is with me, who can be against me? 
You are my refuge.
You are my rock.
You are my fortress.
You are my deliverer and my salvation.

You are perfectly just.
Your wrath is terrible to your enemies.
You hate robbery and wrong.
You will by no means leave the guilty unpunished.
You do not show partiality but judge with perfect fairness.
You sentence the faithless to the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
You are slow to anger and great in steadfast love. 

You are patient.
All day long you hold out Your hands to a stubborn and stiff-necked people.
You relent from disaster and grow weary from so much relenting.
You are patient because You don’t want any to perish but all to come to repentance.
You give your only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in Him has everlasting life. 
You are slow to anger and great in steadfast love.
