Know God’s Character

O taste and see that the Lord[Our God] is good! Blessed(happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who trusts and takes refuge in Him. –Psalm 34:8

It’s important that we know God’s character. Why? It gives us discernment. If we don’t know the character of God, how can we ever know who is from God and who is not from God? Here are three characters traits of God that help me stay in tune with how He is and what He is doing:

  1. Justice: God is a God of justice. That word “justice” is so awesome because it means that He will always make anything that’s wrong right. This helps me not to worry when I am mistreated because I know God will bring justice. It’s who He is.
  2. Goodness: God is good–this fact never changes. And He’s good all the time, not just once in a while or when things go your way. Psalm 34:8 says, Taste and see that the Lord is good(NIV). When things are bad, I find great encouragement in God’s goodness.
  3. Holiness: God is holy and righteous, and He desires to makes us holy, pure and clean, free from the defilements of sin. To be honest, it has helped me in my walk with God to realize that whatever He does is right, whether I like it or not. This helps me to stay in sync with Him.

These 3 traits are not the only characteristic of God, but they are some of the most significant and powerful ones to me.

I encourage you to spend some time looking up these traits, and other traits go God that are important to you. When you study who He is, the Holy Spirit will help you incorporate His traits into your own personality. Begin to practice them in your daily life, and see what God does… “Taste and see” how good He is!
