As I stated in a previous blog, I am reading Christian Beliefs: 20 Basics every Christian Should know by Wayne and Elliot Grudem. Here of are some of main points of Chapter 2 titled “What is God Like.”
God has Freedom
Nothing hinders God’s will, He is not constrained by anything outside of Himself. He is not under any authority or constraint, there is no person or force that can dictate what He should do.
Although we can imitate God’s freedom when we exercise our will, and make choices , all those choices are ultimately up to God’s will.
- The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)
- The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD ; He turns it wherever He wishes. (Proverbs 21:1)
