God’s Character…Do You Know Who I AM?


On April 29, we begin our study of Angela Thomas’ book Do You Know Who I Am? And Other Brave Questions Women Ask. I’ve begun preparing for this study and I’m so excited about this book! I thought it would be good (or I wouldn’t have chosen it for the study) but I didn’t anticipate the emotion I would feel in each chapter.

Having said that, I’d like to share with you just a tiny glimpse into the book.

In each chapter, author Angela Thomas asks God a question most women can relate to. “Do you know I am…invisible…a sinner…lonely?” In answer to each question, we learn more about God—about His character—as He asks us, “Do you know who I AM?

We can never know enough about God’s character. There is always more for Him to reveal to us, both through the study of His Word and the trials we go through in life. God wants to spend time with us. And as we spend time with Him, we will grow to know Him better.

Angela writes, “These chapters are just a beginning—a human effort to know the eternal God of the universe, a God who is not too big to know you and me.” -Do You Know Who I Am, Angela Thomas pg. 3

…a God who is not too big to know you and me.

Think about that for a moment…our God—the God of all creation—is not too big to know you and me. He’s not too busy to spend time with us. And he’s not too big to want to walk through each and every day with us. I find that incredible!

And what’s more—He already knows everything about me. And about you. We don’t have to fear that God will learn something about us that will change His mind in wanting to spend time with us. It won’t happen. God knows each of us better than we know ourselves. He knows us and loves us so much He sent His Son Jesus to the cross. For us.

There is nothing that will change His love for us. Nothing. (Romans 8:38-39)

In Christ,
Laura

  4. Hi Laura - so glad God knows everything about me and still He loves me. So glad that my relationship with Him is not dependent on what I know about Him because He is unfathomable. Great post

  5. It really is an awesome thought - He's not too big to know you and me. The Word says that even the very hairs of our head are numbered. I just cannot comprehend how He can keep track of us all!
