Who is God to you?

Have you ever considered ‘who is God to you?’

It’s a question I’ve considered a number of times in my life – sometimes when I’ve been at my lowest, feeling like everyone including God has deserted me, but also at other times when my faith has been strong.

So who is God to me? Well, as I’ve said on a number of occasions I’m not the best at finding the right words to explain my feelings and emotions, however I did come across a song by Chris Tomlin called ‘Who You Are To Me’ which I feel puts into words just who God is to me. Here’s the lyrics and the music video of this song.

Some people think Your distant just some words on a page
That You're nothing more than fables handed down along the way
But I’ve seen You part the waters when no one else could pull me from the deep
That’s who You are to me
Some people think You just live in cathedrals made of stone
But I know You live inside my heart, I know that it's Your home
And I’ve seen You in a sunset and in the eyes of a stranger on the street
That's who You are to me

You're amazing, faithful, love’s open door
When I'm empty You fill me with hunger for more
Of Your mercy, Your goodness
Lord You’re the air that I breathe
That's who You are to me
Who You are to me

Sometimes I have my doubts I'm sure that everybody does
And I wonder when I stumble am I still worthy of Your love
But I know that I get stronger when I'm talking to You down on my knees
You're everything I need

You're amazing, faithful, love’s open door
When I'm empty You fill me with hunger for more
Of Your mercy, Your goodness
Lord You’re the air that I breathe
That's who You are to me
Who You are to me

You're forever Holy
You're the Lamb who is worthy
My forgiveness, my healer
The Messiah, my Redeemer

You're amazing, faithful, love’s open door
When I'm empty You fill me with hunger for more
Of Your mercy, Your goodness
Lord You’re the air that I breathe
That's who You are -

You are greater, higher over it all
In Your presence, Jesus, I stand in awe
Of Your mercy, Your goodness
Lord You’re the air that I breathe
That's who You are to me
That’s who You are to me
That’s who You are to me

To me, God is amazing and is always faithful. Who is God to you?
