“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I am has sent me to you.’” Exodus 3:14
“I AM with you.” We are not alone.
“I AM your GOD.” You are our sovereign God.
“I AM the Alpha and the Omega” (Revelation 1:8) You are the beginning and the end.
“I AM the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:28) You are LORD of all.
“I AM your shield.” Genesis 15:1 You are our protection.
I AM. I AM. The list goes on. These are just a few examples.
GOD did NOT call Himself I “was.” He did NOT say I “was” with you.
He didn’t say I “might be or “used to be.” He said I AM!
GOD said, I AM.
I am—Present tense. (I am doing/I do) with a future meaning.
NOW. Today, right this minute and always. Always in the present time where we exist. That is so, so very important to understand and hold onto!
Do you see the significance? I know it hit me like a flood of healing water over my parched soul.
I AM means to me that He sees my tears. He hears my prayers. He is actively working on my behalf. He is my shield. He is my protector. He is guarding my heart.
I AM means to me that He understands my struggles, my trials, my doubt. I AM is concerned about everything that concerns me.
I AM is among us. I AM is the beginning and the end. He is at the beginning of all and He will be until the end. He is timeless. He is present now. He is everywhere and we are in His Presence right now. He is with each of His children. He is with me and He is with you.
I AM is ready for us to come to Him. I AM is available. We don’t have to wait to make an appointment to talk with Him. That is pretty cool considering He IS the Creator of all.
I AM is enough. God is whatever He wants to be and He is everything that we need Him to be.
I AM loves you & me so much He gave His Son JESUS to die in our place. I encourage you to open your Bible and find out just how amazing our Father, the Great I AM is! Share your favorite verse with me!
