Here we are, at the end of this #Write31Day challenge. Yesterday, I mentioned how my writing took a turn from what I planned. Originally? I thought about pointing to the things of God which we can believe in. Like His character, His goodness, His steadfastness, His grace and, you get the idea. I thought I’d share about who we are in light of who He is.
In a way, I did. Yet, in another way, God gave other words and different viewpoints to share. I’m so glad. It’s been an amazing journey and I wouldn’t change it. Thank you for being a part of it.
If you’d like to continue, I have this little Facebook Group where we can gather. It’s been quiet for awhile, but maybe we can liven it up and get to know each other.
We could meet up there and seek His face beyond today – together.
For today, Priscilla Shirer’s words from the Anointed, Transformed, Redeemed study quite powerfully underscore the sentiment which I wished to convey throughout October. She does such a great job, why try to do it over again.
Be challenged. Be encouraged. Be blessed. And Believe on my friend.
He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
He’s the keeper of creation and the Creator of all.
He’s the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all time.
He always was, always is, always will be.
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated, and never undone.
He was bruised, but brought healing.
He was pierced, but eased pain.
He was persecuted but brought freedom.
He was dead and brings life.
He is risen to bring power and raised to bring peace.
The world can’t understand Him.
Armies can’t defeat Him.
Schools can’t explain Him.
And leaders, they can’t ignore Him.
Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Nero couldn’t crush Him.
The new age cannot replace Him and Oprah cannot explain Him away.
You remind yourself that He is Light, He is Love, He is Longevity, and He is the Lord.
He is Goodness and Kindness and Faithfulness and He is God.
He is Holy and righteous and powerful and pure.
His ways are right. His word, eternal.
His will unchanging, and His mind is on us.
He’s our Savior, our Guide, our Peace, our Joy, our Comfort, our Lord.
And He rules our lives.
I serve Him because His bond is love, His yoke is easy, His burden is light, and His goal for us is abundant life.
I follow Him because He’s the Wisdom of the wise, the Power of the powerful, the Ancient of days, the Ruler of rulers, the Leader of all leaders.
His goal is a relationship with me.
He will never leave you, never forsake you, never mislead you, never forget you, never overlook you, and never cancel your appointment in His appointment book.
When you fall He’ll lift you up.
When you fail, He’ll forgive you.
When you are weak, He is strong.
When you’re lost, He is your Way.
When you’re afraid, He is your Courage.
When you stumble, He will steady you.
When you’re hurt, He’s going to heal you.
When you’re broken, He will mend you.
When you’re blind, He will lead you.
When you’re hungry, He will feed you.
When you face trials, He’s with you.
When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He will comfort me.
When I face loss, He will provide for me.
And when we face death, He will carry us all home to meet Him.
He is everything, for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way.
He is your God and THAT sisters, is Who you belong to.
