Exodus 3:14. God said to Moses, “ I am that I am.” And he said, “You must say this to the Israelites, I am has sent me to you. ”

We’ve looked at some of the scriptures Jesus quoted. Now we will look through the Old Testament to see where God described Himself by the words “I Am.” In this verse from Exodus we find Moses in doubt as to Who is really sending him on such a difficult mission. God tells Moses, “I Am.” God needs no other name other than the fact that He is always. He was, He is and He will be ever the same. The verb “am” implies present tense. God is always in the here and now. His Presence with us never changes. His power never changes. His love for us never changes. We are always changing. God is continually at work changing us little by little back into His Image; the image He first created mankind to be. Our question is are we the same today as we were yesterday? If so, we are missing the mark. Let s learn to be flexible and willing vessels for God to reshape us and mold us daily into the child He desires.
