Devotionals on God’s Attributes

The Attributes of God I & IIDo you ever wonder what God is really like? I certainly do. Reading A.W. Tozer’s writings on the attributes of God has stretched my thinking and helped me begin to grasp the greatness and the majesty of God.

For the past 2 ½ years, I have written monthly blog posts covering each chapter of Tozer’s books on The Attributes of God. I have written about God’s familiar characteristics of love, grace, mercy, holiness and faithfulness. As Christian nurses, we desire to reflect these virtues to those in our care.

But I have also been challenged to explore some of God’s qualities that aren’t commonly discussed, such as God’s immanence, immutability, omniscience, or omnipotence. These attributes that are so different from any human qualities, are very important in developing a well-rounded view of God’s true nature and how he relates to us.

Tozer wrote, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” A right concept of God is essential if we are to develop trust and faith in Him and have real purpose in living. Tozer was very concerned that most people don’t see God as he really is, so his preaching and writing was devoted to God’s attributes as revealed in the Bible.

I encourage you to read Tozer’s books to enhance your devotional life. Or, take a look at my reflections in these two collections now available from NCF:

Tozer chose the following sub-titles for his two books on God’s attributes: A Journey into the Father’s Heart and Deeper into the Father’s Heart.

This is my prayer for your journey of knowing the Father’s heart and being transformed into his likeness. It is a worthwhile pilgrimage.

This is the final post in a series by NCF Director Jane Hall on God’s attributes. She is inspired by the writings of A.W. Tozer in The Attributes of God, Volume 1 and The Attributes of God, Volume 2.
