The Hebrew name for â€œGodâ€ was considered so holy in scripture that the people wouldnâ€™t even say it. Instead they used names that describe His character and attributes. In the same way that a â€œmanâ€ might also be called â€œfatherâ€ or â€œhusbandâ€ or â€œthe boss,â€ God has names that describe Him and His relationship to His people.
When God appeared to Moses in a burning bush, and sent him to lead the Israelites out of captivity, Moses asked God, â€œwho should I say sent me?â€ After all, he couldnâ€™t breathe the name of God in public. God replied by saying, â€œMoses, My name is I Am.â€ In other words, â€œI am anything and everything you need. I am your joy. I am your peace. I am your strength. I am your victory. I am your way of escape. I am whatever you need.â€
Today, God is saying to you! What is it that you need? I Am everything you need – Water when youâ€™re thirsty; Bread when youâ€™re hungry and your Lover when your lonely. The Great I Am, the Almighty God is ready to supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory. Open your heart of faith to Him right now, and receive all of the blessings He has in store for you!
“God replied to Moses, â€˜I Am Who I Amâ€¦â€™”(Exodus 3:14, NLT)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, today I call on You, the Great I Am. I totally surrender myself to You – body, mind and spirit. Father, I ask that You direct my steps, and please God, supply every one of my needs as I move forward in obedience to Your Word, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
