Who Is God?

Who is God? ⁠

I’m not talking about who you think He is, but who He really is. What does Scripture say about Him?⁠

There are so many descriptions of God in the Bible we could look at, but I read one recently that I don’t think has ever stood out to me before. ⁠

Isaiah 33:22 says, “For the Lord is our Judge, our lawgiver, and our king. He will care for us and save us.” ⁠

What a great description of God. And you need all of that verse together for it to mean the most.⁠

If you just have God as a judge, that’s not very comforting. In fact, it’s terrifying. ⁠

If He’s only a lawgiver, what good is that? Then God just becomes a glorified hall monitor, politician, or speed trap. ⁠

If He’s a King, but not a caring King, well that’s no good. ⁠

But He’s all those things AND He will care for us and save us. WOW! Let that sink in. ⁠

God is our judge and we should fear Him. ⁠

He is our lawgiver and we should obey Him.⁠

He is our King and we should respect Him. ⁠

But as Judge, lawgiver, and King, He is also caring and will save us, therefore we love Him! ⁠

He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry, and filled with unfailing love! (That’s from the Bible by the way!) ⁠

Don’t view God as ONLY judge, ONLY lawgiver, or ONLY King. That leads to a distorted view of God. He is all those things but He always operates from a mode of caring and saving. Always! It’s who He is! ⁠

Who is God? He is a caring and saving Judge, Lawgiver, and King! That’s why we can trust Him. ⁠
