The Supreme God—Loving, Eternal, Caring
The Supreme Being, whom we call God, is in evidence the whole universe over. He is the creator of all things. His Word, the Bible, tells us, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalms 19:1). Day and night, the sun and the stars show us God’s greatness.
God was not created. He is eternal. “Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God” (Psalm 90:2). This Infinite Being has no bounds. “His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation” (Daniel 4:3).

This Supreme Being Is God Almighty
God is all-powerful. He spoke in the beginning, and the world came into existence as we read in the first chapter of Genesis. He will speak again, and this world will be dissolved (2 Peter 3:10-12). He rules in natural and supernatural occurrences. He is recognized in small things as well as in great things.
God is all-wise. “Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18). He is aware of men’s works as well. He knows his own and is known by those who are his own. (John 10:3-4) “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” (Hebrews 4:13).
God is omnipresent (everywhere at all times). There is no hiding from God. King David acknowledged this when he said, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee” (Psalm 139:7-12).
The True God or Idols
The Bible has told us that God is all-powerful, all-wise, and is everywhere at all times. Then why doesn’t man worship him? The Bible says in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” In Colossians 3:2 we read, “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” When man is unwilling to accept the truth of God’s word, he then turns to other things, which can become idols. Anything that replaces our love or devotion that we need to give to God is an idol.
In the Old Testament many people worshiped images or idols. Some of the idols today may not be so easily recognized or noticed. These could include sports, pleasure, power, fame, wealth, or other things that are highly esteemed in the minds of men (Luke 16:15). Are you worshipping and serving the true God?
From Romans 1:18-21 we can learn that the wrath of God is against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of man. The power of God is seen from creation and we have no excuse not to believe. The ungodly are unthankful at times, many of their thoughts are impure, and they do not believe in the truth. The Bible tells us man is not capable of serving two masters (Matthew 6:24). God wants our whole heart and not just a part of it (Mark 12:30).
Is It Possible for Us to Find God?
The Bible tells us, “Ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13). We must reach out for God with our whole heart. Even if we only have a small faith in Him, we can pray as the disciples did, “Lord increase our faith.” God will then increase our faith in Him and give strength and victory to find Him.
It is necessary to have faith in God: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
To believe that God created all things takes faith in an all-powerful God. The more we understand about the great universe and how it all works together to provide a place for mankind to live, the more we know that there truly is a supreme God.
To believe that the universe has come about by evolution presents questions concerning origin and order. The person who believes the Bible finds many proofs of the existence of God. No wonder David said in Psalms 14:1, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.”
God Desires That All People Are Saved
God is loving and He cares for his creatures—for all people. He gives everyone a chance to believe in Him and to be saved. God sent Jesus to come to earth to give his life and shed his blood as a sacrifice so that men could be free from the guilt of sin. All men are sinners and need a Savior (Romans 3:23). Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
The Lord God invites, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6). The Bible, in Acts 16:31, tells us, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” Do you hear his call?
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20). Do you hear his gentle knock at your heart’s door? Do you hear his voice asking to come in?
