The deep inner workings of a beggar's mind

Here Is Your God

Brothers and sisters, “Here is your God!”

The matchless, faithful Redeemer.

The One Who calms the seas,
Yet shakes the heavens.

The One Who gently leads His flock like a Shepherd,
Yet, in holy anger, destroys the wicked and their schemes.

The One Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
Marked off the heavens by the span,
Calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
And knows each hair on every head.

The One Who catches both the falling sparrow and the falling man.

The One Who has created the stars,
Leads forth their host by number,
And calls them all by name.

The One Who stoops to view the earth,
Yet grew up as a Man upon it.

The impossibly amazing, overabundantly providing, ever-near Father.

The incredibly merciful, overarchingly protective, ever-vigilant Defender.

The infinitely wise, overwhelmingly powerful, everywhere present God.

The righteous Judge,

The mighty King of Kings,

The wonderful Savior,

The Comforter, Guide, and Truth-Bearer,

The Alpha and Omega,

The Bright and Morning Star,

The almighty, unshakable, victorious One.

The Holy One of Israel,

The Anchor in our roughest seas,
Provider in our greatest need,
Hearer of our honest pleas,
And Bearer of our darkest deeds.

Our Hope of Glory,
And our glorious Hope.

The Resurrection and the Life,

The Bread of Life,

The Vine.

The Lamb,

The acceptable Sacrifice,

The One punished for our sins.

The risen and now reigning Lord.

The ultimate Peacemaker,

The final Adam,

The perfect Man, and perfect Deity,

One God, three Persons.

Father, Son, Spirit.

He strengthens the weary, revives the dead, heals the sick, exalts the humble, brings low the proud, destroys the wicked, and feeds the hungry.

He was not created by human hands, nor dwells in temples made by them.

Rather, He is the Creator and Sustainer of Life,

The Author and Finisher of Our Faith,

The One and only I AM,

Mighty to save, slow to anger, quick to forgive, good to all.

He endures with patience those vessels destined for destruction,
To manifest the depths of His neverending mercies to those being redeemed.

He brings tears to my eyes,
Only to immediately wipe them away.

In Him and in Him alone are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, for He IS all of these things.

Everything about Him blows my mind and leaves me speechless.

In Him, I am complete.

In Him, I am at peace.

In Him, I am ever-joyful.

In Him, I am ever-loved.

Brothers and sisters, “Here is your God!”
