Some characteristics of God

some characteristics of God 
Some characteristics of God. God isn't in a hurry. The earth, and the universe, are very old. God put up with the unfaithfulness of the Israelites for centuries and generations. He is said to be coming back soon, but that has been said for nearly two millenia. God has His own time scale.

God can be trusted. He is faithful to keep His promises. His laws hold up -- gravity is going to work tomorrow.

God is in control. God the son holds all things together. See Colossians 1, quoted above.

God is extravagant! There are many organisms that we haven't even found, many galaxies that we haven't even seen.

Thanks for looking and reading. The graphic should serve as a link to a larger image.

Thank you, it's good to see these attributes all together.

Puts me in mind of 2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."

Thanks. I thought about putting that verse in the poster, but there wasn't room for much more.
