when you feel like you can’t handle the task at hand and you ask yourself, “girl, who’s your daddy?”. because i remember when Jerry said that to me and i got a good look at him. i felt secure, i felt taken care of not because of me but because of who i belonged to. and what if you got a good look at your God, remembering who he is and that you belong to him. listen, i think until the Lord stops me from taking platforms and ministering to women, I will say this until the day that I die. reminding myself as I do when i am quietly alone and i look myself in the mirror and say “girl, who is your daddy”. you know what i tell myself. i’ll say girl:
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 and always will be. unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone. He was bruised but brought healing. He was peirced but eased pain. He was persecuted but brought freedom. He was dead and brings life. He was 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 couldnt crush him. the new age can not replace him and oprah cant explain him away. she can’t. she can’t do it.
You remind yourself that 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 yolk is easy, his burden is light and his goal for us is abundant life. I follow him because he is 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 will lift you up. when you fail, he’ll forgive you. when you’re weak, he’s strong. when you’re lost, he’s your way. when you’re afraid, he’s your courage. when you stumble, he will steady you. when you’re hurt, he’s going to heal you. when you’re broken, he will mend you. when you’re blind, he will lead you. when you’re hungry, he will feed you. when you face trails, he’s with you. when i face persecution, he sheilds 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, everytime and in every way. He is your God. and that sisters is who you belong to.
