Though God is infinitely above our finite ability to understand or comprehend, he has revealed himself to us in his Word. There are numerous attributes of God’s character expressed in the Bible. These attributes help us know what God is like so that we can have fellowship with him, worship him, and serve him rightly. We should study them, share them, sing about them, take comfort in them, and pray them.
The below compilation of God’s attributes is from the campus ministry I was a part of in college, The Navigators. I believe it is one of the best tools for studying and praying the attributes of God. I am reproducing it here for ease of access for those I recommend it to. My suggestion is to take a different attribute each day, read the accompanying verses, and praise God for that attribute. May God bless you in your pursuit of him!
