Do you long to grow in the knowledge of God?
To know more about His character. Who He is and what He does commences when we invite the Spirit of Revelation and Wisdom to help us understand and gain knowledge. Of how we can encounter and know the important characteristics of God.
There are numerous qualities of God’s character, but these are two important characteristics that make God unlike any other.
1| A God who is Holy
God is supremely holy. He is the God Most High. Because His holiness is unsurpassable. He is separate from sin and incorruptible. No one or nothing can be as holy as God.The only way we can become more like God is if we plug into His power source. We will never attain the level of God’s holiness in our lifetime. Because His holiness is infinite and incomparable. But we can understand this and aspire to be more like God.
For the Lord Most High is to be feared. A great King over all the earth. Psalm 47:2
2| A God who is Most High
El Elyon is the name which states that God is the highest of all gods. This is the ultimate fingerprint of God. He is the highest in every realm. Although there may not be alot written on this intrinsic characteristic of God. The bible is filled with verses that describe God as Most High.
Lord you are the Most High God. You rule over the whole earth. You are honoured much more than all gods. Psalm 97:9
He longs for me to know Him
That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lod, are the Most High over all the earth. Psalm 83:13
He wants me to be a carrier of His presence
The Presence of God. Just as the Ark was sacred and holy and carried the Presence of God, that when the Philistines captured the Ark of God and placed it in the temple of the Philistine god, Dagon – the Philistine god Dagon could not stand in the Presence of God and eventually fell before the Ark broken and destroyed. 1 Samuel 5
Because no god, no idol, nothing could be set beside the Ark of the Lord, which contained the Presence of God. There is no match. Nothing can stand next to the Holy One.
If we are carriers of God’s presence, then we know the unconditional love of God that He loved us while we were sinners. Romans 5:8-10 We will be reshaped by God’s love. And carriers of His love and wisdom in all our expectations, actions and reactions.
They remembered that God was their rock, and the Most High God their redeemer. Psalm 78:35
