The Great I AM

The Great I AM

  Exodus 3:14 And 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.’” The ever-existent One, the God who never changes, and is the all–sufficient One for all time; that is I AM. Not who was or will be. He is ever-present; the source of a never-ending supply, whatever our need. He never wavers. He is the same God of Abraham,…

Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord

Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Have you ever been brought to a place or circumstance that you were at a loss to know what to do or say? As if you were up against a brick wall and you were stuck in forward gear? Everything in you screams, “There is no way out! We’re going down!” Stop. Remember you are not alone. The One who promised to…

God’s Wisdom

God’s Wisdom

James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable (willing to yield), full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. God’s wisdom far surpasses ours. Our wisdom is based on what we know and can see and hear. God, on the other hand, sees the end from the beginning. Ours is subject to human fault. Our intentions are not always honorable, even though we may tell ourselves they are. Taken to its end, our…

Waywardness

Waywardness

Luke 15:20 (Jesus said) “And he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him, and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him, and kissed him.” The son here has finally come to the end of himself and decides to come to his father and admit his wrong. He intends to ask to be a lowly servant, no longer enjoying the status of a son. The father…

God’s Secrets

God’s Secrets

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets. God doesn’t reveal His secret counsel to the casual inquirer. This passage tells us He shares His business with His servants. A servant here is defined as a worshiper of God in the Strong’s Concordance. He promises to reveal, to make known, His plans in the secret counsel, in familiar conversation. Conversation is defined as, “Informal interchange of thoughts, information, by…

Loving God

Loving God

Matthew 22:37 And He said to them, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Jesus is telling us here that we are to love God completely with every part, every fiber of our being. If we love Him in that way, He will fill and color our thoughts, our desires, our appetites, affections and purposes. The way we think and know things will have Him at…

Beginning God’s Way

Beginning God’s Way

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” I never cease to be amazed what you can learn by going back to the original Hebrew language in the Old Testament or the Greek in the New Testament to find out new…

God’s Delays

God’s Delays

Have you ever prayed for a thing and waited, and waited, and waited? Have you given up hope of ever seeing that prayer answered? In Bible study, we recently studied the book of Acts. Near the end of the book is a very long account of the struggles Paul had after the Lord told him he was going to Rome to stand before Caesar. After two years he was finally on his way when he was shipwrecked, bitten by a…

Is Jesus God?

Is Jesus God?

Recently someone asked me if Jesus was God. “Yes. He’s the third part of the trinity. He’s God with skin on. God with a face.” “I don’t understand that trinity stuff,” she said. Looking down into my lap and prayed the Lord to show me how to answer her. My hands rested there with the verigated yarn I was knitting on three needles. Suddenly, I had the answer. “The trinity is like this piece of knitting. It’s all one piece,…

Ungratefulness

Ungratefulness

We are in the season of Thanksgiving—we are reminded to be grateful for the good and the bad. Sometimes it’s hard for us to see God’s good in a situation but that’s because we’re in the midst of it. We can’t see the situation from His perspective. We don’t know the good He is working out through these situations. It’s times like these that people think God has abandoned us, that He doesn’t care, that He’s forgotten our name. Nothing…
