The Monday Devotion: I am that I am

Friends, greetings in Jesus Name! Today, I will be sharing with you on what I title, “I Am That I Am”. One powerful attribute of God is that He is Always in Charge. Beside Him there is no other God. As a matter of fact, whatever thing that exist as god is under Him. For He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is greater than the greatest, higher than the highest – for He is the Most High God (Psalm 47:2). I have come to realize that if one can truly catch a glimpse of who God is, you will not be moved again about anything. Rather you will become daring and unshakable. You see, our view about who God is needs to be well adjusted so we can relate better with Him and enjoy Him as a father. Many believers are at the outer court of God’s presence. Instead of being close to their loving Father, they stay afar off like orphans. In Exodus 3, Moses had a one-on-one encounter with the Almighty God. It was a strange encounter to him because he never envisaged such experience. As a shepherd who was on a self-exile, Moses was just contented tending his flocks and raising a family. But suddenly, an unexpected visitation of God knocked at him while in the field. God called his attention through a burning bush, and made known to him that he has an assignment to go back to Egypt and see Pharaoh regarding the freedom of Israelites who were in bondage. Alas, Moses had a hard time coming to terms to this herculean task. Then he asked the Lord, when I come to the children of Israel, and say to them, the God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me: What is His name? What shall I say to them? Then God answered Moses, tell them that “I Am That I Am” has sent me to you (Exodus 3:1-14). The phrase I Am That I Am captures the totality of who God is. He is your deliverer, your protection, your covering, your provider, your comforter, your healer, just name it. As the I Am That I Am, He is whatever you want Him to be in your life. He is ever present. He does not change or shift in character. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. When the Lord declared His name to Moses, He was literally telling him that my name is enough for you to go back to Egypt and overcome any challenge. For the name of the Lord (I Am That I Am) is a strong tower, the righteous runs into it, and is safe (Proverbs 10:22). When David came face to face with Goliath, he said to him: I come against you in the name of the Lord (The I Am That I Am). Having a clear revelation of the name of the Lord was just enough for David to defeat Goliath. Do you really know your heavenly Father? Remember, you are a God carrier. He lives in you (1 Cor.3:16); and as He is so are you in this world (1 John 4:17). You’re Blessed! With love, Elvis!
