The Great I Am

He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end. He is the Creator of all and keeper of Creation. 

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, but never undone.
He was bruised but brought healing. He was pierced but eases pain. He was bound but brought freedom. He was buried but raises us. He reigns and brings peace.
The world can’t understand Him, armies can’t defeat Him, schools can’t fully explain Him, and leaders can’t ignore Him.
Herod couldn’t kill him, the Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him, and the people couldn’t hold Him. Nero couldn’t crush Him, Hitler couldn’t silence Him, the New Age can’t replace Him, and talk show pundits 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 Savior. He is my guide. He is my peace. He is my joy. He is my comfort. He is my Lord. 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, and the sovereign Lord of all that was and is to come.
If that seems impressive to you, think of this. 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.
When I fall, He lifts me up. When I fail, He forgives. When I am weak, He is strong. When I am lost, He is 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!
