I AM THAT I AM

God is His own equivalent,
and God needs nothing
but Himself to achieve the great purposes
on which He has set His heart.

I AM THAT I AM Exodus 3:14

God gave Moses a blank,
and as life went forward for the next forty years.
Moses kept filling in the blank with his special need.
He filled in fearlessness before Pharaoh.
He filled in guidance across the Red Sea.
He filled in manna for a whole population.
He filled in water from the rock.
He filled in guidance through the wilderness.
He filled in victory over Amalek.
He filled in clear revelation at Sinai.
And so Moses, for the rest of his life,
had little else to do than to go quietly alone,
and taking God’s blank checkbook,
signed by God’s name,
I AM THAT I AM,
write in I AM guidance;
I AM bread.
He presented the check
and God honored it.

And whenever you come to live upon God’s plan as Moses from that moment did, you may absolutely trust God. And when you come down to the hoar-head you will say, “Not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you” Joshua 23:14. A. B. Simpson

Whatever life may bring to you,
“God” will ring true to you;
Star in your sky—
Food in your store—
Staff in your hand—
Friend by your side—
Light on your path—
Joy in your heart—
In your ears music—
In your mouth songs.
Yes, rapid as your race may run,
And scorching as may shine your sun,
And bitter as may blow your blast,
And lonely as your lot be cast—
Whatever life may bring to you,
“God” will aye ring true to you.
Charles. Herbert

Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. Jeremiah 23:23
