Does God Have a Love Language? | “The Universe” Has a Name Part 2

What is a person really like? 

God is a person

Mind, Will, Emotions 

If God stopped thinking of me, I would cease to exist. – Angelus Silesus

Psalm 25:4 Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.

To know God’s ways refers to knowing the principles by which he does things. God’s ways are the ways in which he deals with us. – Watchman Nee 

God loves faith

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God

Romans 10:2-4 I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.

God loves faith 

Colossians 2:8 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him

2 Corinthians 5:7 We live by faith, not by sight

Biblical faith is not about a thing; it’s about a Person 

Trust 

“Faith” within the biblical context is “trust”.Elias Ayala

“I trust you” One of the most beautiful and difficult things to say 

This is a generation that lives with their guards always up

Trust is a precious gift 

Matthew 8:10 Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.

Matthew 8:25-26 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”

When we trust in God often he doesn’t send a helicopter to remove us, but he parachutes down in our midst to be with us. – Dr. Lee Warren 

They couldn’t figure out the how, but they knew the who 

God doesn’t want your situation to be THE thing 

Exodus 20:3 You must not have any other god but me.

He is calling us to a trust that stoutly refuses to regard self-interest as the highest good in life… that God is truly the heart and centre of all things – Brannan Manning 

I surrendered my will and all my life to you without any reservation and with boundless confidence for you are my loving father – Brannan Manning 

Who is God? The person who loves to be unequivocally trusted in 

What you’re doing, you’re getting better at 

Philippians 4:8-9 Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.

What you’re doing, you’re getting better at 

Let God’s presence become THE thing in your life. 

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full, in his wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace
