What is God? Is he a concept or a new idea? Is he a tree or a flower in a field? Is he some mysterious being in the vast expanse of a timeless world?
Some think he is Allah or Buddha? But he is the only True and Living God. Buddha has ears and can’t hear. He has eyes and he can’t see. He has a mouth and can’t talk. Yet some call him God.
God is Alive and he can see, he can hear and he can speak.

He is the first and the last
The Beginning and the end
He is the keeper of Creation and the creator of all!
He is the architect of the universe and the Manager of all time.
He always was, He always is and He will always be. Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated and never undone
He was bruised and brought healing
He was pierced and eased pain
He was persecuted and brought freedom
He is risen and brings power
He reigns and brings peace
The world can’t understand him
The armies of hell can’t defeat Him
The schools can’t explain him
And the 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 Oprah 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
He is always right
His word is eternal
His will unchanging
And His mind is on me.
God is my savior
God is my guide and
God is my joy
He is my comfort
He is my Lord
He rules my life
I serve Him because
His bond is love
His burden is light
And His goal for me is abundant life
I follow him because
GOD is the wisdom of the wise
The power of the powerful
The ancient of days
The ruler of rulers
The leader of leaders
The overseer of the over comers
And GOD is coming soon
And if that wasn’t enough
God is my redeemer, He’s rescuer, rewarder,
And my rock
He is a re-builder, and revealer of mysteries,
Restorer to my soul, and the reallllllll thing
When I fall he lifts me
When I fail he forgives me
When I am weak He is strong
When I am lost He is the way
When I am afraid, GODDDDDD Is my courage
When I stumble He steadies me
When I am hurt GOd 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 GODDDD is with me
When I am persecuted 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 in every way. He is Goddddd. He is faithful. I am his and He is mine. My father in heaven can whip the father of this world. So, if you are wondering why I feel so secure
God is magnificent, merciful and mighty
God is my strong tower, shelter and shield.
He is exalted. He is on my side.
He is working behind the scenes.
And He is my God.
God is God and he is God for good!
