Thank you all for your comments and words of encouragement. I’ve been on a little spiritual retreat, resting in the promises and presence of the Lord! God is good and worthy to be praised! With that said, on to today’s devotional…
Exodus 3:14 “Then 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.”
Revelation: 1:8 “I Am the Alpha and Omega, says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Today, we are looking at two scriptures from God’s word, one from the Old Testament and the other from the New Testament. In both, God makes a declaration of who he is. I Am Who I Am is God’s way of explaining to Moses and the Israelites, that whatever you need me to be in your life, I AM that! In the Hebrew language, this simple phrase means, I am an ever-present God, I am presently present and I am more than enough to satisfy your needs. If we dive deeper for clarification, in the book of Psalms God has said, I AM a present help in times of trouble, I Am your peace, I Am your shield, I Am your deliverer, I Am your healer and much more! Whatever need or challenge that we may face, it has not caught God by surprise and he is more than capable of handling the situation.
Our scripture from Revelation reveals the true essence of who God is. “I Am the Alpha and Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” God is saying, I was there in the beginning and I will be there in the end! Nothing that we will ever face, will be too big for God to handle. By definition the word means unlimited power and great influence! We serve a God who has unlimited power to demolish any stronghold that may try to take root in our life. Rest in the fact that God has it all covered and trust in his ability to take care of it instead of you worrying about how you are going to take care of it.
My Prayer: Dear Lord, as we begin a new week, we ask you to do a mighty work in us. Lord, anything that trys to set itself up against your word, we call it under submission to the blood of Jesus. Your word is true and it is right. We trust you and have full confidence in your ability to work on our behalf. Thank you for being a present help in our time of need and thank you so much for giving us your peace that surpasses anything that we will ever understand! We love you today and always, In Jesus Name! Amen!
