Exodus 3:14 14And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
At first it was hard for me to understand what was meant by this statement, because this phrase does not really conform to our regular way of understanding, until we look a little closer.
In this passage God Himself is speaking to Moses in a very profound way, because He knows that this is what Moses and the children of Israel needed to hear in order to acknowledge His sovereign power.
But what about the rest of us? How does God speak to our hearts so that we can be certain that all our needs will be met? Maybe we don’t hear God speak as profoundly and as clearly as Moses did all the time. However, this does not minimize how great God is. It simply strengthens our faith when God says “I AM THAT I AM”.
This means that whatever we need He is “That”, if we need a friend- He is that friend that sticks closer than a brother, if we need healing- He is our healer, if we need comfort- He is our comforter, basically everything that we need can be found in Him.
For many of us, we tend to place our own limitations on God, we think this thing is too big so we don’t believe God will do it, or that thing is so small God doesn’t have time for such a small thing etc…Forgetting one major thing, and that is God is able to supply our every need.
All that is required is a closer walk with God, and He will lead us to that “place” where we too can have own on personal encounter with the True and living God. Dear friends, this is what we long for, so reach for it, press for it, search for it, whatever we need to do, let us do it today. Because a lot of times when God speaks to us, at first glance it may seem too profound for our minds to comprehend, but when we look closer, it’s really quite simple,
God says: I AM THAT I AM. I AM EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
