Who God Is

Last night I spent some time with friends and other believers and prayer and intercession for a friend. Much of the prayer time and scripture reading was focused on the nature and character of God. Essentially, who He is. I was meditating on that last night and this morning and remembered a beautiful song that worships who he is.

He Is

In Genesis, He's the Breath of Life
In Exodus, the Passover Lamb
In Leviticus, He's our High Priest
Numbers, the Fire by night
Deuteronomy, He's Moses' voice
In Joshua, He is salvation's choice

Judges, Law-Giver
In Ruth, the Kinsman-Redeemer
First and Second Samuel, our Trusted Prophet
In Kings and Chronicles, He's Sovereign
Ezra, true and faithful Scribe
Nehemiah, He's the rebuilder of broken walls and lives

In Esther, He's Mordecai's courage
In Job, the timeless Redeemer
In Psalms, He is our Morning Song
In Proverbs, Wisdom's cry
Ecclesiastes, the Time and Season
In the Song of Solomon, He is the lover's dream

He Is! He Is! He Is!

In Isaiah, He's the Prince of Peace
Jeremiah, the Weeping Prophet
In Lamentations, the cry for Israel
Ezekial, He's the call from sin
In Daniel, the Stranger in the fire
In Hosea, He is forever faithful

In Joel, He's the Spirit's power
In Amos, the arms that carry us
In Obadiah, He is the Lord our Savior
In Jonah, He's the great Missionary
In Micah, the promise of peace
In Nahum, He is our strength and our shield

In Habakkuk and Zephaniah, He's pleading for revival
In Haggai, He restores a lost heritage
In Zachariah, our Fountain
In Malachi, He's the Son of righteousness rising with healing in His wings

He Is! He Is! He Is!

In Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, He is God, Man, Messiah
In the book of Acts, He is fire from heaven
In Romans, He's the grace of God
In Corinthians, the power of love
In Galatians, He is freedom from the curse of sin
Ephesians, our glorious treasure

Philippians, the Servant's heart
In Colossians, He's the Godhead Trinity
Thessalonians, our coming King
In Timothy, Titus, Philemon, He's our Mediator and our faithful Pastor
In Hebrews, the everlasting Covenant
In James, the One who heals the sick

In First and Second Peter, He is our Shepherd
In John and in Jude, He's the Lover coming for His bride
In the Revelation, He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

The Prince of Peace
The Son of Man
The Lamb of God
The Great I AM!
He's the Alpha and Omega
Our God and our Savior
He is Jesus Christ the Lord and when time is no more
He Is!
