Attributes of God
I am always wanting to understand more and more about my Heavenly Father. I know the more I learn more about him, the more I will walk in his light, and the more I walk in his light, the more I will look like him.
Naturally, we can learn a lot about God just from nature. Just by taking a glance outside, we can see what an amazing God he is. But when we dive into God’s Word, we learn more about who he is on a deeper level.
Below I have listed some of the attributes of who he is. I know this doesn’t cover them all, as the list could go on and on. I also picked one verse to go with each one, even though the list of verses could go on and on as well. If you want to print this out, you can do so here: Attributes of God
