What is God like? Are there scriptures that have helped you to know? Have you felt impressions from the Spirit that have helped you discern His love? How can we come to know God as our Father?
Here are a few scriptures that can help us understand what God is like. Please read them and consider what they mean to you. When reading the scriptures, if there are words that prompt you to know more, look them up in a dictionary or in the Bible Dictionary. But don’t stop there; pray for answers. God will listen to your prayers and help you find answers to your questions.
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
12 And he answered: Yea, Lord, I know that thou speakest the truth, for thou art a God of truth, and canst not lie.
These are a few suggested scriptures in this month’s New Era, but there are so many more. Which are some of your favorites? How have they blessed you to have a greater understanding of who God is? How can developing an understanding of God enrich our lives?
