Psalm 86:10 For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.
Colossians 1:16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.
It really isn’t possible for God to be arrogant. But furthermore – He wouldn’t want to be, or need to be. God doesn’t have anything to prove. He just IS.
Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
When we are arrogant, when we puff ourselves up, what we’re really doing is acting out of insecurity. We are acting out of our fear of not being enough. But God is love.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.
