WEDNESDAY 3RD JAN., 2018
TOPIC: ‘I AM WHO I AM’
TEXT: EXODUS 3:14 “And 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…”
The Book of Exodus is full of figures and portraits of Christ and the key word is Redemption or rather Deliverance. The people; Israel were redeemed from bondage in Egypt and into a covenant relationship with God. Moses then as a type or portrait of Christ was used. Here is the beginning of his journey. The oppression in Egypt (Exo. 1:7-22),the life of Moses (Exo. 2:1-21), His calling at the burning bush (Exo. 3:1-10) and his commission and empowerment (Exo.3:12-14,& 4:1-9). Studying these accounts; will enable us to consciously and fully recognise the Spirit of Christ living in us to supply all our needs this year. I Am WHO I Am- God the creator declares that He will be with His Us. I am the covenantal name of God; the eternal One that all other creatures are in debt to Him for their existence. All your challenges today are met the great I Am declares to you: “I am to you what you need Me to be.” Do you need healing? He says, “I am the Lord who heals you. (Exodus 15:26), and as you believe Me, you will see your healing manifest thirtyfold, sixtyfold and a hundredfold.” Are you not sure or skeptical of what the year would be or in darkness and really do not know what to do? He says, “I am the light of the world …..he who follows me shall not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (Jn. 8:12) and will show you the path of life (Jn. 65:4).
Are you looking for a way out of a bad situation? He says, “I am your deliverer. I will reach down from on high, take hold of your hand and draw you out of the deep waters.” (Psalm 18:2, 16) Are you wondering if there is more to life than merely existing from day to day? He says, “I am the resurrection and the life. (Jn. 11:25) I came to give you life and where there is life, there cannot be death. You will have life and life more abundantly.” (John 10:10) Are you fearful of what is ahead of you? He says, “I am the good shepherd (John 10:11), who leads you to pastures of tender, green grass and waters of rest. You will not suffer lack.” (Psalm 23:1–3) Are you confused by the opinions and reports of man? He says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. (Rev. 1:11) I have the final word in your life. The doctors and experts do not have the final word. I have the first word and the last word in your situation.”
Beloved, do you realize that the perfect Love of Christ cast all fears; with His everlasting love He formed you. The great I Am declares to you, “Fear not! For I am to you what you need Me to be!”
