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.”

June 12, Today’s thought – Everything

June 4 009No wants

Good Morning

When one of the wealthiest men in history, John D. Rockefeller, died, his accountant was asked, “How much did John D. leave?” His reply? “All of it!” No one takes anything with him. Think about the things you own—all your stuff. Then let me remind you—your stuff isn’t yours. And you know what else? Your stuff isn’t you.

Jesus explained in Luke 12:15 that life isn’t defined by what you have, even when you have a lot. Contentment comes when we can honestly say with the Apostle Paul, “I have learned to be satisfied with the things I have. I know how to live when I am poor, and I know how to live when I have plenty.” (Philippians 4:11-12).

You have so much! You have a God who hears you, the power of His love behind you, the Holy Spirit within you, and all of heaven ahead of you. You have everything you need!
