These words came in my quiet time on June 18, 2010 as I was contemplating my son Ken’s battle with a recurring brain tumor.


It is written that you shall serve no other gods, and many other gods there are, but none like Me. None who is all in all. None who is before the beginning and after the end of the age of man.

It is Me, the great I AM, Who is your strength. The very Rock you stand on. The very Rock upon which to place your feet. I am God. I am your God. I am the One whom you have chosen and Whom you have served.

Do not be weak in the face of present circumstances. Do not faint before the trials to come. Do not fail to call me Lord, for Lord is My name.

Do not fail to seek Me for comfort. And for healing of every kind, for I am God your Healer. I am the One who gives life for I am life itself.

You will walk through no shadow that is unknown to Me
You will walk through no darkness that catches me by surprise
You will know no presence of evil which can overcome My presence of light
I am your light
I am your path
I am your stronghold
I am the Creator God who spoke the world into being by My Word
