My basic thoughts on God are that God created me and wants what is best for me. At times, that may mean discipline, my favorite, so that I do not get off track. At other times it may mean protection or provision.
At the end of the day, I have a firm conviction that God is for me, and I must respond in faith to that fact. It challenges how I see the world. It gives me clear perspective on what happens to me and around me. It changes how I relate to others.
Most of us have a description of God and we don’t even know it. We have kind of fallen into what we think about God. This can be dangerous. When stuff starts flying around us, we better know what we think about God. What is your description?
