“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” – John 3:16


“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

God does not grow tired.
He does not grow weary.
He does not need a day off.
He does not need to call in sick.
He does not need a vacation.
He does not need to stop and rest.
He does not need a timeout.
He does not need to stop and catch His breath.
He does not need to sleep.
He does not give up.
He does not need a second chance to get it right.

He does not hope He can. He does not hope it may.
He does not hope He might; He is might.

He does not wish He could.
He does not wonder if He will;
It is His will.

He is not surprised. He is not caught unaware.
He sees all. He knows all. He is everywhere.

He is omniscient. He is omnipresent. He is omnipotent.
And He will judge all.

He doesn’t need to ask permission.
He doesn’t need to pay better attention.

He doesn’t need to take more classes.

He doesn’t need to learn anything new.
He doesn’t need to wait to see what will happen.
He doesn’t depend on mere man for His will to be done.

He is not ignored.
He is not disrespected.
He is not mocked.

He doesn’t lie. He doesn’t omit truth.
He doesn’t tell half-truths. He doesn’t change His mind.
He doesn’t break His promises.
He doesn’t forget you. He will not forsake you.
Ever, and forever.

He is patient. He is loving. He is kind.
He is slow to anger. He is merciful. He is righteous.
He is holy. He is glorious.
He is just. He just is.

He is who He always was.
He is who He is right now.
He is who He will be for all eternity.

He is not overcome.
He will prevail.
He has prevailed.
He is with you this very instant,

Right now, right where you are at.

For He is Creator of all, before all, for all, in all, through all,
upholds all, after all, above all, and all in all.

Rest in the eternal peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
today and forevermore. Amen.
