God Is…

When we understand and know who someone is, it makes it much more inspiring to attach, connect and communicate with that person. This is all the more true when it comes to growing in our knowledge, appreciation and love for God. It is difficult to draw close to God, when we are unclear or uncertain of who God truly is. Quiet Times are the daily opportunity to get to know God better and more intimately each day. Here are Scriptures that show us who “God Is”:
