What Im trying to learn from God

Hello lovely readers!

I wanted to do a quick post about what I am currently studying out in my times with my Creator.

All of last semester I was studying out God's character. I really struggle with viewing Him as someone He is not. I struggle with grace. I struggle with fearing God more than loving Him. I ever struggle with believing that He loves me.

I really focused in my studies on His grace and love. I seem to still waver back and forth but I'm slowly memorizing scripture to defeat Satan's lies.

This semester I am extending that study to God's commands, which are an extension of His character, because He wants us to be like His Son, who is like Him.

I sat down one day and wrote everywhere I could find in the Bible (with the internet's help) that God said "Command...." and what the word or phrase was after it.

I came up with a list of 42 things.

This semester that is what I will be studying out.

Pray that God reveals my heart and that I will draw closer to Him and He will reveal more of Himself to me.

What are you all studying out in your times with God?


  1. Thanks for this post. I feel like I need something new to study out! I'm open for fresh ideas...so I'm totally going to be praying about that today.

  2. This was a good website I found when I started doing that recently. It doesn't just list when God says "command", but all the things that are asked of us. It is a long extensive list, but a good thorough list. Just like God does not want Father's to exasperate their children (Eph. 6), I am sure that God does not want to exasperate us with a huge list of commands that we need to follow out either. Where would the grace be in that.

    Ephesians 6
    1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— 3 “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” 4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
