Attributes of God--W


Exodus 15:11
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?

Job 9:10
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 17:7
Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes.

Psalm 65:8
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.

Psalm 107:15
Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

Isaiah 9:6
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

God is WORTHY-- The meaning of the word "worthy" is tied to the meaning of the word "worth." God's merit and character are so great, He is worth our praise and devotion. He deserves highest honors.

1 Chronicles 16:25
For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.

Revelation 4:11
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

Revelation 5:12
In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

God is WISE  -- He knows everything and is absolutely perfect in how He implements His knowledge.  This attribute combines the qualities of His omniscience, perfection, and righteousness.

Romans 11:33
"Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God.  How unsearchable His judgments, and His paths beyond tracing out!"

Romans 16:27
"All glory to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, forever.  Amen."

1 Corinthians 1:25
"For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength."
