Anointed Transformed Redeemed

I'm currently studying Anointed Transformed Redeemed, written by Priscilla Shirer, Beth Moore and Kay Arthur following a Deeper Still conference.  It is based on the different stages of David's life.  It is a 6-week study, with each teacher spending 2 weeks on her topic.  I'm about to start Session 4 and I'm really enjoying it.  It's nice to have variety within one study.

Priscilla Shirer brought it when she talked about knowing who God is.  I really wanted a clip of that part of the DVD, but I don't think that's going to happen.  There's a woman, though, who posted the words and I'm going to share them here.  It's a powerful clip; these are some powerful words!

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, always will be.
Unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone.
He was bruised but brought healing. He was pierced but eased pain.
He was persecuted but brought freedom. He was dead and brings life.
He was risen to bring power. And he reins to bring peace.
The world can’t understand Him. Armies can’t defeat Him.
Schools can’t explain Him and leaders can’t ignore Him.
Herod couldn’t kill Him. Nero couldn’t crush Him.
The new age cannot replace Him and Oprah cannot explain Him away.
He is life. 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 yoke 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 and 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.
When you fall, He’ll lift you up.
When you fail, He’ll forgive you.
When you're weak, He is strong.
When you’re lost, He is 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 trials, He’s with you.
When I face persecution, He shields me.
When I face problems, He will comfort me.
When I face loss, He will provide for me.
When we face death, He will carry us all home to meet Him.
He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way.
He is your God, and that, Sisters, is who you belong to!

- Priscilla Shirer (Deeper Still Conference)
