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.’ Exodus 3:14
The other day in my quiet time. I was crying. I was crying out pleading with the Lord on many subjects!
Before I could just sit and intentionally listen for His response to my never ending questions... I immediately heard this resounding voice speak to me, "I AM"!
It was straight to the point!
It was firm and yet tender.
It was commanding but gentle.
It was simple but yet profound.
It was kind and yet convicting.
Most of all, it was EFFECTIVE!
An excerpt taken from www.chicagobible.org -
The Hebrew words in Exodus 3:14 for “I AM THAT I AM” are ehyeh asher ehyeh which should more accurately be translated “I will be what I will be” or as Rotherham translates it, “I will become whatsoever I may become.” This expression in Exodus 3:14 is an idiom, an expression that has a meaning that cannot be understood by the individual words. So, what does “I AM THAT I AM” mean?By using the translation “I will become whatsoever I may become,” we see the relationship of this phrase to Yahweh – “He who becometh.” They both use the word “become.” The use of ehyeh asher ehyeh in Exodus 3:14 was God’s way of assuring and pledging to Moses and Israel that God would become whatever they needed Him to become.
This promise found in the name of God can be extended to the world of mankind. God will become what they need Him to become – an architect for the plan of salvation that will bring them back into harmony with Him. In the case of the heavenly church, God will be all we need to make our calling and election sure.
Well, that sums it up for me, how about you? What do you need God to become for you?
Healer - Deliverer - Provider - Restorer - Father - Husband - Spouse - Comforter - Counselor - Leader - Life Source - You pick!
That answer "I AM" is all encompassing - all sufficient and all that is needed!
There are so many beautiful souls that are hurting, lost and broken. Some fellow believers who have been through an intense season of long suffering in one way or another. There are those that don't know the Lord (even some that do) that are being led further and further from the Truth. It's time for the Church to come out of it's slumber and BECOME who God designed us to be. And yet, there are hinderances or things keeping us from that. We need God to be the Great I AM and release us from all that keeps us from this!
What do you need God to become for YOU?
What will it take for YOU to step fully into His call on your life?
