God’s Self-Portrait

steadfast-love

The Lord says: Let not the wise man bask in his wisdom, nor the mighty man in his might, nor the rich man in his riches. Let them boast in this alone: That they truly know me, and understand that I am the Lord of justice and of righteousness whose love is steadfast, and that I love to be this way.
Jeremiah 9:23,24 tlb

JUSTICE: fair

RIGHTEOUSNESS: good

STEADFAST LOVE: loyal, faithful, enduring, firm

God has given me a picture of Himself. These characteristics motivate Him, and they are always His underlying purpose.

I allowed this or I did that because I am always just and righteous and because I love you

Therefore:
If what is happening in my life or in the lives of my loved ones does not fit into one of these categories, then I am not viewing it correctly — from the proper perspective. God does not lie, and I must keep this in mind constantly.

A. W. Tozer said, “It is most important to our spiritual welfare that we hold in our minds always a right conception of God. Nothing twists and deforms the soul more than a low or unworthy conception of God.”*

*The Best of Tozer (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House, 1978), p.120.
