Just How Much “God” Is Your God?

The answer to this question will greatly affect your daily life. That God is God seems so basic enough that it goes without saying; but over and over in Scripture God reasserts His Godhood. The reason? There are those who would teach of a “god” who is somehow something less than “God.”

Just how much “God” is God?

He is all God!

I am God (Genesis 35:11; 46:3; Psalm 46:10; 50:7; Isaiah 43:12; 45:22; 46:9; Ezekiel 28:9; Hosea 11:9).

We learn a lot about God from His name. The basic Hebrew word used for God is El. The word means “Placer, Subjector.” God is the El of Scripture. He is the Supreme Placer, the Supreme Subjector.

EL is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and omniparous. That is, He is able to do all; He knows all; He is present everywhere at the same time; and He is the producer of all.

He is the Creator, the Owner and the Proprietor. He is Planner and Executor. He is Supplier and Sustainer. He wills all, He orders all, He directs all. He is God!

Sadly, there are some who would teach of “a god” who somehow is less than The God. That “he” can’t seem to manage to do exactly what “he” wants to do, and that “he” is somehow actually subject to “his” own creatures. This may be “a god” of religion, but it is not The God of Scripture.

Purely and simply, regardless of what His creatures may assert to the contrary, the true and living God of Scripture is 100% absolute God and Sovereign of His Own universe.

Regardless of what man says about God to the contrary, God is God! Period.

Rest in that.
