As a family we regularly praise God for Who He is, His Nature and Character during our prayer time. As we celebrate Thanksgiving we will again be praising Him for the many amazing and pure qualities that He is.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. Psalm 100:4
Here’s a list of 8 traits to get you started. I’m thankful God that you are:
Pure Knowledge. “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3)
Pure Presence. “Am I a God near at hand” says the Lord, “and not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, so I shall not see him?” says the Lord. “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.” (Jeremiah 23:24)
Pure Power. “God has spoken once, twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” (Psalm 62:11)
Pure Ability. “Then Job answered the Lord and said, “I know that You can do everything, and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from you.” (Job 42:2)
Pure Sovereignty. “The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.” (Psalms 24:3-4)
Pure Holiness. “For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God; therefore be holy, for I am holy.” (Leviticus 11:45)
Pure Justice. “The Lord is righteous in her midst [Israel and the rest of the world], He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, but the unjust knows no shame.” (Zephaniah 3:5)
Pure Truth. “He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)*
in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
