The Lord spoke to me with his strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people. He said…“Do not fear what they fear…The Lord Almighty is the one You are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear.”(Isaiah 8:11-13, NIV)
Father, You are Almighty God,
the sovereign Lord over all reality.
I need fear nothing else.
You are wisdom and love,
so I want only Your will.
You are truth.
Everything else is false and fading,
unworthy of my desire and trust
You are all-in-all.
Outside You is only emptiness and nothingness.
Outside You all will change and die.
You are forever.
You are unchanging.
You are complete, and
I am complete only in You.
Father, often I come to You so anxious that
I ignore the comforting truth I crave,
even as You sing and dance and paint it all around me.
It is the unchanging truth that
You are all power and beauty, wisdom and love, and
that I have absolutely nothing to fear.
