Getting To Know God
His name is...
The Creator - The Light - The Glory - Aseity
God Does It All
I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these [things].
Life can seem like it’s out of control. The Bible teaches this is impossible. When we understand the nature of God as Creator and recognize the extent of His glory, we can’t conclude that things are beyond His control. God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. So where did darkness come from? God created it! As a potter has charge over clay, so too is God in control of ALL things that He has made, including darkness and calamity. Things might seem chaotic from our perspective, but this is never true from God’s. Since He has charge over all things, He is able to produce any outcome according to His goodness and righteousness.
