Rant for Jesus – That Is Who You Are – December, 2018

 Lord, You are the living God, holy, holy, holy. You are the great I Am shining like the sun. No one is like You. That is who You are.

 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. His Word is meat for men and milk for children. God says, call upon Me I am Elohim the mighty God of Israel. I will make a way where there seems to be no way. I will open doors for you that no man may close. I will make your crooked path straight. You are Christ, that is who You are.

 You are rich in love, slow to anger, Your Name is great and Your heart is kind. Your love, grace and mercy cover all who love You. How deep and how wide is Your love? It never stops. It is unfailing and continues on. Your love is like a fire that lights my way and a lamp to my feet. Although we don’t deserve Your love, it goes on forever. You are good Lord Jesus. That is who You are.

 You are the Red sea parter, miracle worker, great physician, promise keeper and light in the darkness. You are the King of my heart, the anchor in the storm and the fire inside my spirit. You will never let go of me. That is who You are.

 You are mighty to save, the author of Salvation. You conquered death, hell and the grave. Oh great are You Lord. You are the risen King. You are the Perfect Savior, the King of eternity, and the Lion of Juda. You are my lifeline with unfailing love. You are my God. That is who You are.

 You are my Lord, Teacher, Shield, Deliverer, Shepherd, and Comforter. In the days of my troubles You are my shield. Your Word is my sword. I hold the shield of faith in one hand and the sword of the Spirit in the other. You are the water that flows from a rock in a dry and thirsty land and the living water that flows like a river inside me. That is who You are.

 He refreshes and restores my soul as He leads me beside still waters. He is the Great I am, a mighty, mighty, mighty Great God who delivers me from Satan my enemy. He heals my broken heart and binds up all my wounds. He is the Great Physician who sent His Word and healed me. He is the Shepherd who leads all who will follow. He knows me by name and knows the numbers of hairs in my head as well as the length of my days on the earth. He knows my faults and weaknesses and loves me anyway. You are an Amazing God. That is who You are.

 He is my Savior and Redeemer. He lay His life down for me and the world, on that cross. He stained it with His blood. He took all the sin of mine and the world on His shoulders. He healed me by His stripes. By doing this He has washed the sin away from me and anyone who will believe and follow Him. He is Faithful and True, El Shaddai, God Almighty, the One who was and is and is still to come. That is who You are Lord.

 I’m amazed when I think about where I’ve been, all the wrong roads I traveled on and how Jesus still held His hand out to me. I ran away from Him and He waited for me. It humbles me to think on it. His longsuffering with me is overwhelming. It brings tears to my eyes to realize the vast goodness in Him. He could have given up on me a long time ago, but He didn’t. He is full of love, compassion and mercy. He has proven His love for me. I have tasted and seen it. He is our Maker, our God and Lord. That is who You are Lord.

 He is good. There is no other like Him. He’s been waiting on you too. Accept Him as your Savior today.

 Ephesians 1:11-12 It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.

 God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
