I AM

MosesMoses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law and he lead the flock to the far side of the wildness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in the flames of fire from within. Moses saw that through the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought I will go over and see this strange sight–why the bush does not burn up. When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush. Moses! Moses! and Moses said “Here I am” Do not come any closer God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. Then he said ” I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God. (Exodus 3:1-6) The Lord said to Moses I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. God wanted Moses to go and free his people from the Egyptian, and like so many of us today when God is calling us to do a job, what do we say not me Lord, send someone else. But in the time of Moses God had intending choosing him for this job.

Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they ask me, “What is his name? Then what shall I tell them? 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. God also said to Moses, Say to the Israelites, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.  This is my name forever, the name you shall call me, from generation  to generation.                                   (Exodus 3:13-15)

Who is the Great I Am, over the next few writing I will share with you from Lysa Terkeurst book Finding I Am. This is a wonderful study for anyone who is seeking to find out who is the Great I AM.

A Morning Devotion

Prayer 1.png I enjoy my time totally alone with God thru reading his word and thru prayer, sharing my day with our Lord as well as my hopes and dreams, But, more important I learn to “Be still and Know I am God (Psalm 46:10) to understand God desires for my own life. I have learn over many years that God truly has a better plan for me than I could ever dream possible. As I have read many times from the book of Matthew 6:5-13 as the disciples ask Jesus to teach them to pray this is what he said.

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seem by others, Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret , will reward you. And when you pray do not keep babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. This , then, is how you pray:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. This reading is thru the New International Version, each Bible can be a little different.  Also when we do have fellowship with others and we know of a need or hurt it is good to come together and pray. For when we do come together we are never alone Jesus is right with us, where two or more are gather he is always there. Prayer is a powerful tool for us as Christians, it draws us closer to our Heavenly Father.
