God is who He says He is - 5 March 2018

“Therefore my people shall know my Name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.” Isaiah 52:6

There are so many descriptions as to who God is, who “I Am” is, what He says, what He does and the rich and deep expanse of His character. But, within all of these descriptions, the question is, am I living with an awareness of His presence? He says: “I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.” (Isaiah 43:11). Besides God, there is no wise man, no guru, no motivational fundi, no re-thinker, no modernist, no philosopher or theologian who can save us. God gave to us the ultimate definition of a saviour, by giving to us the only Saviour. A Saviour who could not save Himself from death, but who did the will of His Father, and in so doing, brought about true saving for all generations to come.  What do you believe?  Who is your saviour? Do you find yourself angry because it seems as though God is not answering your prayers? Are you stuck at what could have been? Have you perhaps exchanged your unconditional love for God for the things that you require of Him? Do you perhaps compare God to other gods? Or, do you perhaps know better than “I Am”?

To whom do you give the glory for where you are in life today? Do you remember the day you gave your life to the Lord? You were in all likelihood in awe as to who God is. Later on you may have become accustomed to being saved and perhaps even arrived at a place where you had taken God’s forgiveness for granted. Do you still see yourself as a miracle, that God still knows and loves you? Never take this for granted. Scripture says: “That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 22:33).Have you perhaps forgotten where you came from? It is where we came from that we can glorify God as it is He who has carried us to the present. Do not remain stuck at the pain and disappointment of the past, but allow “I Am” to transform your healing into a testimony. “Let your trial become your testimony by letting God transform your failure into victory”.

Prayer: Father, You are who You say You are. I am not always who I say I am. Change me Lord so that I may become more and more like You. Amen
