That's His Heart

What is the heart of God like?

* He leaves the ninety-nine to go find the one that's lost.

* He runs to the weary, wayward child who wants to come home.

* He bottles every tear we cry and writes them down in His book.

* He gives no condemnation in exchange for the confession of the blackest sin.

* He is the Way Maker when there seems to be no way.

* He is the Father continually looking out for His own.

* He is not willing that any should perish without knowing His salvation.

* He rises to show compassion and longs to be gracious to us.

* He is unimpressed by fame, fortune, education, and worldly titles.

* He is incapable of prejudice, racism, or unfair judgment.

* He can do no evil.

* He is a disciplinarian for the ultimate welfare of His children.

* His love can never be quenched or diminished based on the behavior or deeds of those He loves.

* He is self-sufficient, all-mighty, all knowing, ever-present, all wise.

* He has no darkness in His person, nothing malicious, and all of His decisions are just.

* He is faithful and true and will never betray.

* He cannot lie nor can He fail to keep His promises.

* He is a covenant keeper.

* He is the redeemer of harm and abuse.

* He is lavish in His generosity.

* He delights in His own and sings over them.

* He hates sin.

* He is eternal.

* He will never leave or forsake us.

* He knows our every thought, every word, and every action and loves us in spite of them.

* He saves us by the power of the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ, and not by our own goodness or strength.

* He is the conqueror of death and the grave.

I constantly need to be reminded of who He is. I have such limited knowledge of Him, but one day I will know Him fully even as I am fully known.
