Bible Passage:The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
* * *
That is, I renounce all evil spirits, idolatries, magic arts, and everything that arises out of unbelief. I set my hope and trust in no man; not even in myself, my power, my learning, my wisdom, my righteousness, my fortune, nor anything that belongs to me. I trust in no creature either in heaven or in earth. I commit myself unto, and I believe in, the One invisible God only, the Maker of heaven and earth, and the Lord of all creatures. And I do not fear the arts and deceptions of all the evil spirits together; for my God is greater than them all, and they are all under His command. And though all men should forsake and even persecute me, nevertheless I have all my hope and confidence set in God. Nor shall my poverty, nor my ignorance, nor any want of righteousness, nor even the contempt of all, hinder me from believing. Nor shall my sins turn aside my faith, For my faith is far above all these things. Nor will I ask any signs of God, nor at all tempt Him by so doing. I trust steadily in Him, however long it may be before He fulfills all my desires. Nor will I set Him any limits, measure, or time. As He is the Creator and Lord of heaven, earth, and all things, who can hurt me or take anything from me? Moreover, as He is God, He knows how, and is able, to deal with me in that way which shall be best and the most to my profit. And as He is Father, His will is that my good should always be considered by Him. And as I rest all my hope and trust in Him, I am persuaded that I am His son and His servant, and that the inheritance shall come unto me. In a word, as I believe, so is it done unto me.
We all believe in one true God,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Present Helper in all need,
Praised by all the heavenly host,
By whose mighty power alone
All is made, and wrought, and done.
aka Pastor Robin Fish
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight.
