“And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.”
This week I have been thinking a lot about all that God is to us. To some, God is simply a name. To others He is an all-powerful being that exists somewhere in space. Yet to others, He is simply a myth. If you are a Christian and you have a true relationship with God then you know that there is so much more to Him.
I love what God calls Himself in today’s verse: I Am That I Am.
Friends, this name covers so much. It should be an encouragement to us that no matter what we are facing, God will be what we need.
In life there are so many unknowns that we face each day, yet if you will listen closely to God’s voice you will hear him whisper, “I Am.”
When you are hurting, God whispers, “I am your healer.”- Psalm 147:3: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
When you are scared, God whispers, “I am comfort.”- 1 Peter 5:7: “Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
When you are lonely, God whispers, “I am near”- Deuteronomy 31:8: “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
When you are weary, God whispers, “I am your rest.”- Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
So often we search the world over looking for the answers to our problems, yet the entire time God is standing there saying, “I Am.” I pray today that no matter what you are needing you will seek God and all that He wants to be to you.
