Quotes about God
The Bible teaches us a great deal about God. From Scripture we learn that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. We also learn that God is love, caring, holy, eternal, full of justice and mercy.
One of the most extraordinary things about God is that He wants to be found and He desires for us to experience Him. Through His Son He has made a way for us to have fellowship with Him, to grow in our relationship with Him, and to grow in our intimacy with Him. Let’s learn more with these awesome Christian quotes about God.
Who is God quotes

Quotes about God’s love
Love is powerful and fascinating. Having the ability to love and just the idea of knowing that I am loved by others is amazing. However, where does love come from? How are we able to experience love from our parents? How are we able to grow more in love with our spouses daily?
We see love everywhere in all types of relationships. Have you ever asked yourself, why does love happen? The origin of love is God. The words of 1 John 4:19 are so profound. “We love because He first loved us.” God is the only reason that love is even possible. Our greatest attempts at loving our loved ones is feeble compared to the love that God has for us. His love is relentless and unceasing and it was proven on the cross.
He made a way for sinners to be reconciled to Him through the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. He pursued us while we were still sinners. He poured out grace, love, and mercy and His Spirit has made us new. His very presence is living inside of us. Even the most mature believer will never be able to comprehend the depth of God’s love for him.
11. “God’s love for us is proclaimed by each sunrise.”
12. “God’s love is like an ocean. You can see its beginning, but not its end.”

Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely. … He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken.” ― Dieter F. Uchtdorf
16. “Though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.” C.S. Lewis
17. “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us” – Augustine
18. “God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, “I love you.” – Billy Graham
19. “There’s no place too dark for God’s light to penetrate and no heart too difficult to be set aflame by His love.” Sammy Tippit

21. “The beautiful thing about God is that even though we cannot fully comprehend His love, His love fully comprehends us.”
22. “Legalism says God will love us if we change. The gospel says God will change us because He loves us.”
23. “The shape of true love isn’t a diamond. It’s a cross.”
24. “You can look anywhere and everywhere, but you will never find love that is purer and encompassing of everything that God’s love.”
25. “If you have never known the power of God’s love, then maybe it is because you have never asked to know it – I mean really asked, expecting an answer.”
Grace is the unmerited favor of God and it’s an essential part of His character. We deserve nothing less than God’s wrath. In the story of Jesus and Barabbas, we are Barabbas. We are the clear criminals, guilty of punishment. However, instead of us being punished, Jesus the innocent and righteous God-Man took our place and we were set free. That is undeserved favor!
Grace is God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense. Romans 3:24 teaches us that believers are justified by grace. We didn’t make a way for ourselves nor would it be possible for sinners to get right with God on our own. We can’t merit for ourselves salvation. By God’s grace we can trust in the merit and righteousness of Jesus Christ. Grace brings us to God, Grace saves us, Grace changes us, and grace works in us to conform us into the image of God.
26. “God’s grace is the oil that fills the lamp of love.”
27. “I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am” – John Newton
28. “There is nothing but God’s grace. We walk upon it; we breathe it; we live and die by it; it makes the nails and axles of the universe.”
29. “Once more, Never think that you can live to God by your own power or strength; but always look to and rely on him for assistance, yea, for all strength and grace.” – David Brainerd
30. “God’s grace, quite simply, is God’s mercy and goodness toward us.” – Billy Graham

I love what William Tyndale said about God’s goodness. “God’s goodness is the root of all goodness.” God is the source of everything that is good and apart from Him there is no goodness. We’ve all experienced the goodness of God, but we haven’t even come close to truly understanding His goodness.
34. “God is waiting to satisfy us, yet His goodness will not satisfy us if we are already full of other things.” — John Bevere
35. “There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.” – C. S. Lewis
36. “God’s grace and forgiveness, while free to the recipient, are always costly for the giver. From the earliest parts of the Bible, it was understood that God could not forgive without sacrifice. No one who is seriously wronged can “just forgive” the perpetrator.” Timothy Keller
37. “True faith rests upon the character of God and asks no further proof than the moral perfections of the One who cannot lie.” – A.W. Tozer
38. “The foundation of moral life as God’s truthfulness.” – John Piper
39. “Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you cannot understand at the time.” Oswald Chambers

Praying to God
What is your prayer life? Have you come to know the Lord in prayer? Do you desire to spend time with Him? I encourage you to reflect on this question and be honest. If the answer is no, it’s not to shame you. Humbly bring this to the Lord. Be open and talk to Him about your spiritual struggles.
This is relying upon God and trusting in His strength to reignite your prayer life. I encourage you to rest in His love and confess your sins daily. Set a familiar time every day and seek the face of God. I encourage you to start making war in your prayer life.

57. “If you have so much business to attend to that you have no time to pray, depend upon it, you have more business on hand than God ever intended you should have.” – D. L. Moody
Let us continually cry out for the presence of the living God. There is much of Himself that God wants us to experience. Andrew Murray said, “it is in a life lived according to the flesh and not according to the Spirit that we find the origin of the prayerlessness of which we complain.”
We have to continually confess sin and live according to the Spirit so we will not quench the Spirit. Let us remove the things that are hindering us from truly knowing and experiencing Him. There are many things in this life that make us happy for a moment, but leave us empty desiring more. Resting in God’s presence and having a greater sense of Him is the only thing that gives true joy.

66. “Some people complain they don’t feel God’s presence in their lives. The truth is, God manifests Himself to us everyday; we just fail to recognize Him.”
67. “Trying to be happy without a sense of God’s presence is like trying to have a bright day without the sun.” Aiden Wilson Tozer
Trusting and depending on the Lord
I must confess that I struggle to depend on the Lord. I can be so dependent on myself at times. God is so trustworthy and He has proven that time and time again. Let’s continually grow in our dependence on God. Use every situation as an opportunity to pray and rely upon the Lord. Trust in Him knowing that in all situations He is good, He is sovereign, and He loves you. Let’s learn to be still before Him in worship and grow in our appreciation of Him.
