I Am Who I Am



Who is God? That is an age old question. And it’s also one that He Himself answers in Exodus 3:14.


“God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.”


In this chapter, Moses and God are having a discussion about freeing the Israelites from slavery. Moses, like many of us has been called by God to do something extraordinary but he doesn’t believe that he can do it. He didn’t realize that it doesn’t matter what he could do. It only mattered what God could do. He didn’t understand that if God was on his side, victory was his.

Sounds like me in so many areas of my life. God calls me to something and all I do is doubt instead of remembering that THE I AM has called me. If He is the One that has called me, He is the One who will equip me.


The Great I AM knows my name.

The Great I AM knows my need.

The Great I AM knows His purposes for me.


God is everything we need and everything we don’t know we need.

He is peace for a weary soul.

He is comfort for a broken heart.

He is a Father for the orphan.

He is a protector for the defenseless.

He is a provider for the needy.

He is love for the unloved.

He is hope for the hopeless.

He is salvation for the lost.

He is a refuge for the outcast.


That’s the I AM WHO I AM!


What do you need the I AM to be for you today?


Sovereign God



“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LordAs the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

Raise your hand if you’re a control freak! Hopefully, I’m not the only one that has their hand up. I’m the oldest of four and I was raised as an only child. So, there’s that. I am terribly independent. I have no problem doing things for myself and by myself. I rarely ask for help. I have great ideas about how my life should go. I usually think that those ideas are best.

But, then I remember that I’m not God. I am just a human with a very limited perspective. I am bound by the confines of what I can see and touch. Our God is not. He is timeless. He sees the end from the beginning. He sees beyond the natural.

I wish that He and I thought more alike than we do but, often we don’t. That’s why He is God. That’s why I am in process. And that’s why He is ridiculously patient with me.

His thoughts are higher.

His ways are perfect.

His is all together sovereign. 


Do you struggle with the sovereignty of God?
