In the book, God is a Brown Girl Too, the Father speaks in and as the Brown Girl.
Listen as God speaks through a black woman:
The Psalmist says, “the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” How many times have you read that passage from the 23rd Psalm and never paid attention to its meaning? This single line is one of the most powerful affirmations that there is. It means that I am your Shepherd. It means that the divine vibrations that I express as you, the indwelling Christ consciousness in which you are reborn, the Holy Spirit — which lives in you, guides you, comforts you, and teaches you, is your Shepherd. It means that I am always present, always constant, always watching over you, always making sure that you are protected, that you are fed, that no danger or harm comes near you. But most importantly, it means that because you live and move and have your being in infinite source, you have everything that you need. It means that there is no limit to my good.
I am always blessing you, always watching over you, always embracing you, always empowering you. You need to learn to see beyond your physical eyes. I am the substance, the catalyst, the creativity from which all life springs and all ideas evolve. You cannot even begin to imagine my greatness and the abundance of my Kingdom that is always available to you.
I am greater than miracles. I am greater than desire. Your difficulties arise when you believe that you are separate from the power that I give you. Pray with me. Meditate with me. Sit with me. And I will bless you with the opportunities that you need, the people who will help you, and the divine ideas that will bless you.
I am your Shepherd, providing you with the ability to create good for not only yourself but to be a constant blessing, inspiration, and resource to others. Spirit is always leading you to the pasture of opportunity. . . if you listen.
If you need a teacher, I am there. If you need a client, I will send them. If you need an answer, I will give it. If you need discernment, I will shepherd you through what you need to do. No matter what you are up against, no matter what the appearances look like, no matter what the threat — it better beware because I am with you: the Good Shepherd, the Infinite Power, the Almighty, the One who says that the battle is mine, the One who says touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm, the One who teaches that all you have to do is believe.
Your weapon is your faith. I have a rod and a staff that you can lean on: the right person who just shows up and says, I will do this for you, the closed sign doors that just open, the towering wall that is removed, the difficult passage that opens a way out of no way.
I will bless you from the top of your heads to the bottom of your feet. The good will flow to you from so many different directions that you cannot even begin to imagine what will be in store for you.
The highways and the byways will just pour, rain down blessings on you because — as the song goes — your “God is a good God!”
When we realize that the Father is in us, we know that we have everything we need.
