He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

Who’s your Daddy? by Pricilla Shirer



Do you ever need to remind yourself on who your God is?  Praying this list by Priscilla Shirer will encourage and strengthen your heart.  

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 has risen to bring power
and He reigns 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

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’ll never leave you
Never forsake you
Never mislead you
Never forget you
Never overlook you
and never cancel your appointment in His appointment book, never!

When you fall He’ll lift you up
When you fail He’ll forgive you
When you are weak He’s strong
When you are lost He’s your Way
When you are afraid He’s your Courage
When you stumble He will steady you

When you are hurt He is going to heal you
When you are broken He will mend you
When you are blind He will lead you
When you are hungry He will feed you
When you face trials He is 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 (and brothers) is Who you belong to
