Isaiah 40:28 says, “Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.”

God can be described in many ways: our Abba Father, the Father of Lights, the All Consuming Fire, The Beginning and the End, The Almighty, and the list goes on and on.  Ultimately, God is our creator and our Heavenly Father.  Genesis 1:1 tells us, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  Later in the Book of Genesis, we’re told God created Adam, and then later created Eve.  These were the first two people He created.

Next, one must understand the magnitude of God and His capacity of love for each one of us.  He created us to be in relationship and communion with Him.  However, sin separates us from Him.  Therefore, God sent his Son Jesus to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, so that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” we’re told in John 3:16.

Ultimately, for believers, God desires what is best for us, even if it’s not the thing that gives us the most pleasure.  He trains us to do the same thing – to love others the way He loves us.  Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
