And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”
This verse is really wonderful! The God I AM is really The Alpha and The Omega. God revealed himself here as The Great I AM. And, notice a few verses from The Book of John.
I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”
And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.
Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
Now, notice the words I am from all those verses. The Great I AM God really is Jesus Himself. He wants to tell us that the answer to our problems is Jesus. No matter how insurmountable the odds are, no matter what disease you have, no matter the circumstances are, Jesus is whatever you need Him to be! He is The Great I AM. I AM everything you need!
The key to your trust is not who you are or the attempt to improve yourself. But it’s who He really is; and who Jesus really is is everything you need Him to be. He is your redemption, He is your salvation, He is your answer to everything, He is your partner, He is your Life, He is your dad, He is your mother, He is your brother, He is your best friend, He is your Healer, He is your comforter, He is Immanuel – God who lives within us! So, whenever you are confused and all worked up with all your problems and odds, you can apply this I AM principle and be refreshed 🙂
