I AM

I AM


There is something we need to know. Without this information, we are terribly incapable of living in this world or the next. This truth changes everything and gives us all we need to see the way forward.

God IS.

Throughout God’s exchange with Moses at the burning bush and beyond, God reminds His servant that all He needs to accomplish the great deliverance of the Israelites from Egypt is the truth contained in these two words. “I AM,” God says over and over.

The Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst.” (Exodus 7:5)

Why is this sufficient? Just put anything you need and anything of great value behind that statement and you will see why it is all-encompassing and life changing.

  • I am STRENGTH
  • I am MIRACULOUS
  • I am ALL-POWERFUL
  • I am OMNIPRESENT
  • I am YOUR SAVIOR
  • I am THE LORD

… and on and on. If we don’t believe that He IS, we have lost the foundation for our faith. The writer of Hebrews says this clearly.

Without faith it is impossible to please God. And everyone who comes to God must believe that He IS and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).

What a man must come to is to realize that, as a man, he is NOT. We are not powerful, sufficient, capable, etc. on our own. But, GOD IS. When we realize that, we turn from our pathetic humanistic ability and step into the fullness of living by dependency upon Him.

And when we do, we discover that God is all we could dream of or need … and infinitely more.

Lord, thank You that You are. You are all I need and all this world needs. Help me to rely on You and live my life in total dependence upon You. And help me to live to help bring others to You.

Even in the church, thousands know Christ and perhaps have a personal relationship with Him but are not experiencing a daily, conscious sense of His presence. Who are not experiencing Him.

KEEPING OUR PREPOSITIONS IN ORDER, or, HOW MINISTRY WORKS

There is much that poses for spiritual ministry that is a shadow of what God intends. Tragically, we regularly hear of ministry leaders being exposed who have operated with selfish agendas, ulterior motives, and even horribly sinful habits. Satan loves to manipulate those who are not operating with God’s ways to try to discredit those who are.
