He is my GOD

“This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety: He is my God and I trust Him.” Psalm 91:2

“This I declare”, some definitions are “to say in a solemn and emphatic manner, to state without hesitation, to swear. My favorite definition is “to broadcast.”

This I broadcast

“about the LORD”: The LORD —Master or Ruler

He alone is my refuge.” Refuge—a condition of being safe & sheltered from danger. The place that I run to when the storm or trial is hitting. The place I can go for shelter from pursuit, danger or trouble. A place of security.

“my place of safety.” safety—the condition of being protected from risk, injury or harm. A place where I am protected from harm. A place I can be at ease because I trust where I am.

“He is my GOD.” GOD—The Creator & Ruler of the universe. The Supreme Being. He is worthy to be worshiped. There is no one above Him. my GOD—I am claiming Him as my GOD, belonging to me. I have a personal relationship with Him.

“And I trust Him.” Trust—firm belief in the reliability, truth, strength or ability of someone or something. To be certain, assured, and convinced. To know that He can be relied upon. That He is my protector and I am His charge. He keeps me & cares for me. He has full custody and I know I can depend on Him.

So my version of Psalm 91:2 is:

I broadcast this about the LORD: He alone is my security and my place where I am protected from harm. Where I can go to cry and laugh, to be myself. I will run to no one else. He is my GOD, The Creator of all & is above all things. He has sole custody of me. He lovingly cares for & protects me as His charge, as His child. I have firm belief that He is not only able but He is willing and is always in the process of caring for me. I rely on Him. I am certain that my hope & trust is in the right place. In my GOD.

He is your GOD too when you believe in His Son Jesus. Some helpful verses to learn more—John 3:16, Romans 3:23, 6:23-24, 5:8, Romans 10:9-13, Acts 16:30-31

I AM…Present Tense

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.’” Exodus 3:14

I AM with you.” We are not alone.

I AM your GOD.” You are our sovereign God.

“I AM the Alpha and the Omega” (Revelation 1:8) You are the beginning and the end.

“I AM the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:28) You are LORD of all.

“I AM your shield.” Genesis 15:1 You are our protection.

I AM. I AM. The list goes on. These are just a few examples.

GOD did NOT call Himself I “was.” He did NOT say I “was” with you.

He didn’t say I “might be or “used to be.” He said I AM!

GOD said, I AM.

I am—Present tense. (I am doing/I do) with a future meaning.

NOW. Today, right this minute and always. Always in the present time where we exist. That is so, so very important to understand and hold onto!

Do you see the significance? I know it hit me like a flood of healing water over my parched soul.

I AM means to me that He sees my tears. He hears my prayers. He is actively working on my behalf. He is my shield. He is my protector. He is guarding my heart.

I AM means to me that He understands my struggles, my trials, my doubt. I AM is concerned about everything that concerns me.

I AM is among us. I AM is the beginning and the end. He is at the beginning of all and He will be until the end. He is timeless. He is present now. He is everywhere and we are in His Presence right now. He is with each of His children. He is with me and He is with you.

I AM is ready for us to come to Him. I AM is available. We don’t have to wait to make an appointment to talk with Him. That is pretty cool considering He IS the Creator of all.

I AM is enough. God is whatever He wants to be and He is everything that we need Him to be.

I AM loves you & me so much He gave His Son JESUS to die in our place. I encourage you to open your Bible and find out just how amazing our Father, the Great I AM is! Share your favorite verse with me!

Giving Thanks

YOU MATTER.  YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU ARE A BLESSING. THANK YOU!

 Thank you for your kind words, your support and your likes.  Yesterdays post was a soul baring moment for me…One I have never shared publicly…I was not sure how I would get through it.  God knew and He gave me YOU! Many times He brings friends into our live to help.

Whether you knew it or not…You helped to give me HOPE.  Many have walked this very road I travel and I want to encourage you to find HOPE and HEALING through TRUST & FAITH in GOD. Each person & situation is unique and we all heal in our own way and our own time.  Our Creator and Author of our life is HERE. Here for us to cry to, to listen to us yell and question…AND to COMFORT, CONSOLE, EMBRACE and GIVE HOPE.

I love the Kings James version of Psalm 91:2

“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.”

God encourages us to Make HIM our Refuge by pouring out our hearts to HIM, TRUSTING HIM AT ALL TIMES…at ALL times.  Not just when things are going smooth or right or good.

When things seem to go wrong, maybe it is NOT a punishment…maybe I am growing…maybe BETTER things are coming…I don’t know…But I do know that good or bad, I am learning to TRUST HIM.
