God said to Moses. I-AM-WHO-I-AM. Tell the people of Israel,'I-AM sent me to you.' "
EXODUS 3:13,14 (The Message)
I was in a grocery store several years ago and on their P.A. system they were playing a trivia radio show, and one of the D-Jays made the remark that the most complete sentence in the whole world consists of just two words and those two words are," I AM."
I had often wondered just why God would say His Name is I-AM.
I prayed and asked God, "Why did you tell Moses that your name is I-AM?"
The Holy Spirit began just pouring thoughts into my mind, it was like He had lifted the top off my head and just began pouring it into my brain.
Just think, I-AM, IS ALL SUFFICIENT, ALL KNOWING, ALWAYS PRESENT EVERYWHERE AT ONCE, THERE IS NO DEFICIENCY IN GOD, NO LACKING IN GOD, NO BLEMISH IN GOD, NOTHING IS BEYOND HIS DOING, NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD TO FIX OR TO ACCOMPLISH.
NO MATTER WHAT THE SITUATION, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, IS TOO HARD OR TOO MUCH FOR GOD, HE IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE I-AM. NOTHING CATCHES HIM BY SURPRISE OR IS HE EVER UNAWARE OF THE NEEDS OF HIS CHILDREN.
Not only was God The I-AM of the Old Testament, He is also the I-AM of the New Testament and He can and will be my and your I-AM, in fact He Wants To Be my and your I-AM today and for eternity.
How you ever asked yourself,"Can God be my I-AM? I am so glad you wanted to know. Dear Precious readers, before the world was formed God has a plan for you and me to know Him as our I-AM. That plan is Jesus Christ, Gods' only begotten Son. Before the foundation of the world was laid Jesus Christ was the chief corner stone.
"Jesus said unto them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures:'The stone which he builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the LORDS' doing. and it is marvelous in our eyes." (Matthew 21:42 JKJV) This was Jesus telling the people that He is the Chief Corner Stone of the world and the people rejected Him.
But in John 3:16 the Word of God tells us how God made a way before the world was formed for all people in every nation, every race, creed and tongue, every one, me and you also "praise the Lord.)
"For God so loved the world that HE gave His only begotten Son , that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16 NKJV) GOD loved us so much that He prepared a way for us to live forever with Him, by sending His only Son Jesus Christ to be born from a virgin girl as a baby on this earth, grow up and give His life and every drop of blood in His body to cover our sins. By accepting that blood to cover our sins and repenting to Him of our sins and living each day with the goal of pleasing Him and telling others of the saving grace of Jesus Christ we can and will live with Him forever.
Ephesians 2:19-22, (NKJV) "Now therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets. Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building being fitted together, grows in to a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you are are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit."
Precious readers please allow THE I-AM-THAT-I-AM, BE YOUR I-AM-THAT-I-AM, after all that is really the most important thing you can or will ever do.
I love you, Love Gloria
