This is my God...

Before this blog goes anywhere else, I feel that I should give credit in it to the one whom my heart loves above all: my Father and my God. You cannot know me fully without knowing my God. Now most of you reading this already know that and the same is true for you, so just take this as what it is, an encouragement to us and a shout-out to our Father.

This is my God:

Isaiah 6
"1 In the year of King Uzziah's death, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of his robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

   3 And one called out to another and said,
         "Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts,
         The whole earth is full of His glory."

   4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke."

This is my God:

Zephaniah 3
17"The LORD your God is in your midst,
         A victorious warrior
         He will exult over you with joy,
         He will be quiet in His love,
         He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy."

This is my God:

Psalm 23
"1The LORD is my shepherd,
         I shall not want.

      2He makes me lie down in green pastures;
         He leads me beside quiet waters.

      3He restores my soul;
         He guides me in the paths of righteousness
         For His name's sake.

      4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
         I fear no evil, for You are with me;
         Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

      5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
         You have anointed my head with oil;
         My cup overflows.

      6Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
         And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

This is my God:

Revelations 1
"12Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands;

   13and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash.

   14His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire.

   15His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.

   16In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.

   17When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man And He placed His right hand on me, saying, "Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last,

   18and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades."

This is my God:

Matthew 11
 27"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

   28"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

   29"Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.

   30"For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

This is my God:

John 15
13"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

   14"You are My friends if you do what I command you.

   15"No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.

And this, this is my God:

Romans 8
"14For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

15For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!""

And may Papa bless this blog.

Rock on. I can hang it above my humble computer when I get settled into my humble dorm room.
