30 Attributes of God: The Character of God in the Bible

The attributes of God empower us to face the year with security and confidence, no matter what comes. In this article, we will outline 30 attributes of God you can rely on in difficult and unknown times.

It’s a new year. And with it comes new opportunities, possibilities, and anticipation. What does this year hold for us? What new adventures lie ahead? Will there be new challenges to face? Will life be better this year than it was last year?

Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.  John 17:3

For some, the unexpected is frightening. For others, new possibilities are exciting. Whatever this year holds for us, one thing never changes. There is one thing that is constant, dependable, and sure. There is one thing we can count on as we journey through deep valleys and grope in the darkness of uncertainty. And even when life is smooth, and we stand on the heights of happiness, there is one thing beneath us, a firm and steady foundation.

The Purpose of Doing a Bible Study on the Character of God

As we embark on a new journey this year, carrying bags packed with hope and expectation, let’s also begin our course with the knowledge of who God is. Knowing the character of God and His attributes empowers us to face the year with security and confidence. The more we know about our Creator and Savior, the more we grow in our love and faith in Him. This increased faith carries us through challenging terrain and reminds us of His firm and unshakable grace for us. No matter what lies ahead, knowing who God is will give us strength to persevere as we enter into all the unknowns of a new year.
