My last two posts were titled “What’s Love Got To Do With It” and in those posts I referenced the fact that knowing God’s character helps us to know and understand love. There are many people in the world who are angry with God for the struggles, abuse or tragedies in their lives. Little do they know that God is not responsible for evil acts done to them or their loved ones. Satan does a good job of hiding behind the scenes encouraging people (in their minds) to blame God for all bad that has happened in their lives or speaking lies to them that God doesn’t exist.
To know God’s character and love, we need to read the Bible. From the Book of Genesis to Revelation, God’s character and love is revealed to the reader in many ways through His testimonies of His tender love, mercy, grace; and judgment against evil.
Today we will explore a few of God’s awesome character of love and I pray that the reader will continue to investigate the Bible to discovery even more characteristics of God and His love for mankind.
The people that are angry with God don’t understand that God has given mankind the wonderful gift of “free-will!” With this gift, we can choose to serve God or to choose not to serve God. There are many people and religious organizations in this world today that choose to live their lives separate from God. God will not force anyone to serve Him! A good example of this is found in the Bible with the account of the Tower of Babel. The men of that generation didn’t want God as their Leader. They chose another God!
In the area of struggles, abuse, or tragedies. Once again, mankind is given “free-will” to manage their lives with or without God’s wisdom or help. We make choices with our finances that will one day cause us financial ruin! We are hurt or disappointed over an occurrence in our lives and take out our frustrations on our loved ones, causing them to be abused. God didn’t create us to be puppets, He created us with a sound mind to make godly choices, but because of our own lust, greed or temptations, we choose the wrong path. Should we blame God for our wrong choices in life? No! The person to blame is self and satan and his demons.
