Hello Beloveds of God,
I pray you have had a wonderful week as we are putting things back together from the Winter Storm. It was bad, and a lot of people are still in the process of dealing with the results of it. But, it was beautiful for many who have not seen snow like that. Even though It was icy, and dangerous, and so very cold, it was a beautiful time of realizing how wonderful it is to have what we have, and to see the beautiful power of God Almighty. A time to remember that whatever is going on in our lives, the God of Love, the great I AM, is with us when we know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord in our heart. He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is always the Beautiful, and Wonderful I AM.
In Exodus, we see our God of Love identify Himself. His people had been in slavery for many years, and of course you know where they were, and why they were in slavery. But they were calling out to God for deliverance even though they did not know Him personally. They had been taught that their God was the great God of Isaac, and of Jacob, and of Abraham, and they worshiped Him in their own way, but they did not have a personal relationship with Him. You know the story of Moses, and the fact that He was a great Prince, but was performing the task of a Shepherd of sheep. He was being prepared to do something that he never dreamed of. This is how it is for each of us.
No one is in life at a certain time without reason. We must remember that fact each day; we must remember each of us are here to represent our Lord of Love. We do not know how that is sometimes, but as we keep our hearts open, the Lord will usually reveal it to us. There will be sometimes when we do not even realize what is happening until it happens. When we know Christ Jesus, when we walk in the power and Love of the Holy Spirit we will be blessed to be a blessing and not even realize it. There will be lives lived by those who do not know the Lord, but that He uses to do His work; for reasons they may be shown at a later time. Some of you may have had experiences like that.
Always remember He IS WHO HE IS. He is LOVE. We see in Exodus 3:13, when Moses asked Him “what shall I tell them your name is,” He answered in 3:14, “I AM WHO I AM.” He said in 3:15, “This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.” It is His announcement of the fact that He IS ALWAYS with us – regardless of the situation, regardless of what we are going through. He is ALWAYS with us in Love. Though we may find ourselves in a storm in the weather, or a storm in our job, or in a storm in our finances, or a storm in a relationship, just keep going, knowing The Lord is with us. Whatever we are going through on our life’s journey shall pass, but we will grow as we go as we trust Him in the process. He said, “I Am the same, yesterday, today, and forever.” As He was with Moses, so He shall be with each of us who ask Him to be. As we go forth in Him, we shall bring His Love to those in our lives. This is His desire. This is why we are here. Many other things will be given to us to do, but receiving and sharing His Love is #1.
Blessings and Love upon each of you, and yours, children of God. He said, “I AM WHO I AM.” He is LOVE. Let us let Him make that who we are. Let us show that fact daily in every way.
