The Nature of God

So who is this new found friend of yours? What should I expect from God?

Three main components of God are these:

God is Spirit. God is not limited to a physical body nor to our understanding of space and time.

God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality).
John 4:24 AMP

God is perfect.

Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:48 KJV

God is personal. Your heavenly Father is concerned with your needs. He desires to make provision for His children.

Therefore humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
1 Peter 5:6-7 AMP

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Matthew 6:25-34 KJVR

Your God truly cares for you in a way that no human being has ever experienced apart from His love. Speaking from my own experience and walk with God: Give up ever trying to understand His love for you. It is incomprehensible. Just receive His love, regardless of whether or not you feel worthy of it. His sacrifice for you made you worthy. Now, just take it all in.

His nature is that of love.
