TOPIC: THE ‘I AM THAT I AM’ OF MY LIFE

Read Isaiah 46:1-5

MEMORISE: Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you (Isaiah 46:4).

EXPOSITION
We are serving a Living God, who was, is, and will forever be! At the time when His people were languishing in the dungeon of slavery in Babylon, overwhelmed with their hopeless and helpless situation, the Lord assured them of His presence and purpose, through His servant. He reminded them of His name with which He liberated their forefathers from the Egyptian slavery: … “I AM WHO I AM” or ‘Yahweh’ (Exod. 3:14). In a way, He was passing it across to them that He is the only eternally existing One! Before any of us was born, He was ‘He’, and throughout our lives span, He remains the only ‘He’ of our lives. Note that He says, ‘I am’. “I am” today, “I am” tomorrow, “I am” forever. He doesn’t say, “I was” or “I will be,” He had been existing before eternity. Therefore, He is eternal. He is the Ancient of Days who doesn’t change in personality, position, purpose and power. He is absolute in that He neither can be added to, nor removed from. He is permanently and completely constant. Absolutely, i.e. immediately and ultimately, He remains the only ‘He’ of our lives.
Upon entering into the world, many of us come across possessions, positions, and pleasures. We do not come into the world with them. Paul clarifies this under inspiration, saying: ‘For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out’ (1 Tim. 6:7). But these later known forces, or gods (possessions, positions and pleasures) have turned many into something else! Whereas, all these will soon become irrelevant; they cannot carry us longer, but God says, right from your conception, birth, infancy, adulthood, old age and grey hairs, He remains the only ‘He’ of your life! Have you come to terms with this truth through, and in our Lord Jesus Christ?

PRAYER POINTS

  1. Begin to bless the Only ‘He’ of your life–Jehovah Almighty.
  2. Pray for the grace to remain faithful to Him as the only Lord and Master of your life, all the days of your life.
  3. We declare that You are Lord of all, sovereignty overruling everywhere–people, land and clime.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 1 Samuel 15 – 17
