God Is What He Is

. . . Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel,
I AM hath sent me unto you.
Exodus 3:14b

Do you know anyone who goes around saying, “I am”?
Neither do I.
When we say “I am,”
we always add another word,
“I am happy.”
“I am sad.”
“I am strong.”
“I am Max.”
God however starkly states, “I AM”
and adds nothing else.

“You are what?”
we want to ask.
“I AM,” he replies.
God needs no descriptive word
because He never changes.
God is what He is.
He is what He has always been.
His immutability motivated
the psalmist to declare,
“But thou are the same” Psalm 102:27
the writer is saying,
“You are the One who is.
You never change.”
. . . . Traveling light, Max Lucado
