God replied to Moses, I Am Who I Am... (Exodus 3:14, NLT)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In the Bible, God has many names that describe His character and attributes. In the same way that someone named Joe might also be called father or husband or the boss, God has names that describe Him and His relationship to His people.
In the Old Testament, the Hebrew name for God was considered so holy that the people wouldnt even say it. So, when God appeared to Moses in a burning bush and sent Him to lead the Israelites out of captivity, Moses asked God, Who should I say sent me? After all, He couldnt breathe the name of God in public. God replied by saying, Moses, my name is I Am. In other words, I 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.
Today, God is saying the same thing to us! What is it that you need? The Great I Am, the Almighty God is ready to supply all your needs according to His riches in glory. Open your heart of faith to Him today and receive all the blessings He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father in heaven, today I call on You the Great I Am. I surrender myself to You spirit, soul and body. I ask that You direct my steps and supply every one of my needs as I move forward in obedience to Your Word in Jesus name, Amen.
Thank you and Amen.
