Make sure of your commitment to Jesus Christ, and seek to follow Him every day. Don’t be swayed by the false values and goals of this world, but put Christ and His will first in everything you do. Billy Graham
I Am Who I Am
Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is His name?’ Then what shall I tell them?” God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
We are all given names when we are born and in the Bible, names often reflect the person’s character. Barnabus means ‘son of encouragement’ and true to his name, he was a great encourager to Paul. Today, Biblical names are chosen by parents because they want their children to have the qualities and attributes of that character.
Many names are given to God in the Bible: He is the Bread of Life (John 6:48); the Good Shepherd (John 10:11); the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). So when we are hungry, He will feed us; when we go astray, He will find us; when we are lost, He will show us the way.
However, when the Lord gave Moses His personal, divine name of “I AM”, He was emphasizing His authority as the eternal and unchangeable God, the Creator who existed before time began. Moses could approach both the Israelites and the Pharaoh, with confidence that the everlasting God of the universe was with Him.
So let us proclaim this promise over our lives this morning, “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Joshua 1:5
I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. Thank You that I have the assurance that You will help me when I call upon You in the day of trouble. Amen.
God bless you,
