I Will Have No Other

As many of you know, I'm headed out of town for a few days, and I don't know how often I'll be able to post, but I'd like to be able to share this with you all before I leave.

Awhile back ago I was meditating on the attributes of God and was struck by the vastly different facets of his character.

The Rock of my Salvation spoke the mountains into place and carved the vast depths of the ocean with a word.

The Ancient of Days has written the number of my days and knows when I lie down and when I rise up.

The Holy Judge of the nations has declared me perfect, clothed in the righteousness of His one only son.

The Great Shepherd leads me beside still waters, and even in the valley of death I will fear no evil.

He is the heir of all things, yet He is the one that grants the air I breath.

He is the Firstborn of all creation, yet He fashioned me in my mother's womb.

He is the radiance of the glory of God, yet He is the light to my path and a lamp unto my feet

He is the creator of our solar system and beyond, yet He holds a sparrow in his hand and clothes the lilies of the field.

He has created the angels and all of heaven, yet He has revealed things to me into which they long to look.

HE, the perfect high priest of all humanity, sacrificed himself as
a spotless lamb

The Author of History is writing my story with love and care.

The Sovereign of the Cosmos who has named each of the stars, knows the number of hairs on my head.

He is my God, He is my life.
I will have no other.
