There is so much that goes on inside of us, outside of us, and around us, that can literally make our heads spin. There are so many if’s, and’s, and but’s that we deal with daily making us feel deflated, depleted, and downright drained. Sometimes, it just seems that things are out of control and we can’t get a handled on anything and we have mastered or accomplished nothing.
But, I take comfort in the words God spoke from the midst of the burning bush to Moses, His prophet. He said, “I AM THAT I AM,” (Exodus 3:14) and I am drawn into a world of sweet wonder at the love my God has for us.
The human heart can get so muddled and become so bogged down to the point that it can’t even express properly how it feels or what it wants to say. But, the great “I AM” doesn’t need our proper articulation of words to understand our deepest needs on the inside. In His beautiful care for us, He needs only to take a peek behind the scenes on the inside of our being to see what cares we bear.
He is our perfect heart inspector. When you feel like you can’t get it out – seek Him out because He already knows, in His loving sovereignty, how to deal beautifully with you.
God can be absolutely anything we need Him to be. But, God already is the great “I AM.” Those two words with only three letters cover us, lives inside of us through His Spirit, and helps us in our most desperate need.
So, if it’s tears that’s on the menu of your heart today, that come without explanation, the great “I AM” is the perfect set of shoulders to unload the heaviness of it all. If life just seems overwhelming at times. The great “I AM” is, well, greater than anything, any plan, or any thoughts against you. Whatever may seem to overpower us will never take over Him. He will always be in control. During every waking moment or any sleeping night, the great “I AM” will always be standing watch, guarding, and keeping us at those times when we can’t keep ourselves.
I smile when I think of the wonder of it all – the sweet wonder of Him. He really is the lifter of heart, mind, body, and soul. He is beyond anything we need Him to be. God, is simply, the great “I AM.” With a period at the end of it, it closes the case on exactly who He is.
