Then I said: “Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant
of love with those who love him and keep his commandments. Nehemiah 1:5 (NIV)
He is the first and the last, the Beginning and the End.
He is the Keeper of Creation and the Creator of all.
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be . . .
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated, and never undone!
He was bruised and brought healing.
He was pierced and eased pain.
He was persecuted and brought freedom.
He was dead and brought life.
He is risen and brings power.
And He reigns and brings peace.
The world can’t understand Him.
The armies can’t defeat Him.
The schools can’t explain Him.
The leaders can’t ignore Him.
Herod couldn’t kill Him.
The Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him.
The people couldn’t hold Him.
Nero couldn’t crush Him.
Hitler couldn’t silence Him.
The New Age can’t replace Him.
And Donahue can’t explain Him away!
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, kindness, gentleness, and God.
He is holy, righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right.
His Word is eternal.
His will is unchanging.
And His mind is on me.
He is my Redeemer.
He is my Saviour.
He is my Guide, my peace, my joy, my comfort.
He is my Lord.
He rules my life.
I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
The power of the powerful,
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers,
The leader of leaders, the overseer of the overcomers,
And the sovereign Lord of all that was and is and is to come.
If that seems impressive to you try this for size.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me.
Never forsake me.
Never mislead me.
Never forget me.
Never overlook me.
And never cancel my appointment in His appointment book.
When I fall, He lifts me up.
When I fail, He forgives.
When I am weak, He is strong.
When I am lost, He knows the way.
When I am afraid, He is my courage.
When I stumble, He steadies me.
When I am hurt, He heals me.
When I am broken, He mends me.
When I am blind, He leads me.
When I am hungry, He feeds me.
When I face trials, He is with me.
When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He comforts me.
When I face loss, He provides for me.
When I face death, He carries me home.
He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time, and every way.
He is God.
He is faithful.
I am His and He is mine.
So if you’re wondering why I feel so secure, understand this . . .
He said it and that settles it!
God is in control, and that means all is well with my soul.
Everyday is a blessing, for God is awesome!
