Char·ac·ter: the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.
Character makes up a person’s core. One’s thoughts and intentions–why we do the things we do. There’s nothing more shocking than discovering someone was not who she/he claimed to be. We don’t always get a chance to know the truth up front.
But you know what’s comforting? God intends to reveal His true character to you.
He does not want to be a mystery to you. He wants to come near you. He wants you to identify His traits, to understand His thoughts towards you. You, the individual. You.
The basis of God’s character is that He wants the best for you. He has the best for you. And He’s on your side. He’s not an enemy, not a tyrant. You don’t need to be scared of Him. He’s not here to manipulate you or lead you on a path of confusion. He’s actually your biggest support-system.
His intentions are to provide good for you. He wants you to live a good life you can’t imagine.
His character, or His mental and moral qualities, are good. He’s the Creator of good things.
When struggles arise, remember this: Evil is the devil’s job. God’s not the author of the struggle, but the solution to it.
If you’re looking for God, know that He’s here–whether you believe in Him or not or are unsure. He wants to reveal Himself. Just ask. Psalm 86:5 states we will know of His steadfast love when we call upon Him.
God’s love is free-for-all. And He’s reaching out for you. Are you ready to grab a hold of His goodness?
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you. (Psalm 86:5 ESV)
