The Bible doesn’t waste time proving the existence of God. It assumes the obvious. “In the beginning God …” (Genesis 1:1). A five-star meal doesn’t cook itself. The Eifel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Gold Gate Bridge, and the other architectural wonders of our day, didn’t just leap into existence. Buildings demands a builder. Creation demands a Creator.


“The fool says in his heart, ‘There’s no God’ ” (Psalm 14:1).


God, Elohim in the Hebrew, isn’t a name. It’s a title. His name is Yahweh or Jehovah. That’s YHWH in the original texts, but usually translated Lord in our Bibles. “I am the Lord (Jehovah). That is my name” (Isaiah 42:8). “I am the Lord (Jehovah)”(Exodus 6:2).


God is! … But what or who? What does the Bible say?


He is “God Most High” (Genesis 14:18) and “God Almighty” (Genesis 28:3). He is “God of Heaven” (Genesis 24:3), “God of the Whole Earth” (Isaiah 54:5) and “God Over Every Creature” (Jeremiah 32:27).


The Bible describes God by displaying His attributes. He is “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3). He is “the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God” (1 Timothy 1:17). He is the “God of All Grace” (1 Peter 5:10), the “God of Justice” (Isaiah 30:18, NKJV), the “God of Glory”(Psalm 29:3), the “God of Knowledge” (1 Samuel 2:3), the “God of Love and Peace” (2 Corinthians 13:11), the “God of Mercy” (Psalm 59:10, NKJV), the “God of Hope” (Romans 15:13), the “God of Peace” (Romans 16:20), and the “God of Truth” (Deuteronomy 32:4, NKJV).


He is “Lord” (Genesis 15:2), “Light” (John 1:7), and “Love” (1 John 4:8).


David sang, “The Lord is my Shepherd” (Psalm 23:1). God wasn’t an unknown or impersonal Shepherd. He was David’s Shepherd. Likewise, Jehovah is the “God of My Salvation” (Psalm 51:14), “God My Savior” (Luke 1:47), “God of My Refuge” (Psalm 43:2), “God of My Righteousness” (Psalm 4:1, NKJV), “God of My Life” (Psalm 42:8), therefore the “God of My Praise” (Psalm 109:1).


Together, we can marvel at “God Our Savior” (1 Timothy 1:1), “God Our Father” (Romans 1:7), “God Our Strength” (Psalm 81:1), “God of Our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 1:17), “God of Our Salvation” (Psalm 85:4), and “God With Us” (Matthew 1:23, ESV).


He is the “God of Our Fathers” (Acts 3:13, ESV), the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” (Exodus 3:16), the “God of David” (2 Kings 20:5, NKJV), the “God of Elijah” (2 Kings 2:14), the

“God of Israel” (Genesis 33:20), the “God of Daniel” (Daniel 6:26), the “God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego” (Daniel 3:29), and the “God of the Holy Prophets” (Revelation 22:6, NKJV).


He is “God the King” (Psalm 145:1), “God of gods” (Deuteronomy 10:17), “God of Heaven’s Armies” (2 Samuel 5:10, NLT), “God the Lord” (Psalm 50:1), “the One Enthroned” (Psalm 55:19).


By grace alone, through faith alone, He can be “our God and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:1).
