I Am So That You...




I Am...Abiding Love...
...so that as you abide in Me, you abide in love.

I Am...Mighty and Strong...
...so that you may have My strength and power for your weaknesses.

I Am...the Joy-giver...
...so that your joy may be filled to overflowing.

I Am...the Provider, Jehovah-jireh...
...so that you may have provision for all you need.

I Am...Life Everlasting...
...so that you may have Eternal Life within you.

I Am...the Lord of Peace...Jehovah-shalom...
...so that you may be filled with My peace in a chaotic world.

I Am...the One Who whispers to your soul...
 
God once said to me, “My name is I AM, not I WAS or I WILL BE. If My children insist on living in the past with regrets and unforgiveness, then I am not there, for My Name is not I WAS, even though I was to others, yet I still am. If My children insist on living in the future, I am, in essence, not there yet, for My Name is not I WILL BE, even though I will be what they need when they get there. If they want to change My Name, change it to TODAY, for that is where they will find Me. I am where My Name is. My Name is My Presence.”

In the New Testament, Jesus is Jehovah-shammah, as Matthew, quoting prophecy, said of His name, “‘They shall call His name Immanuel,’ translated as, ‘God with us.’” (Matt. 1:23b NKJV)

The last thing Jesus said to His disciples was, “And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20 NKJV)

I Am...always with you, intimately involved in all you do...

...Jehovah-shammah, Immanuel...

...so that you may know Me in your innermost being.

I Am...so that you can be!

    Lynn this is so beautiful. Too often, people tend to focus too much on the past - regretting past mistakes, etc. Or they think, "If I can just get past...then I'll be able..." But you are so right God is I AM. He is with us right now.

    Blessings,
    Joan

  11. Lovely, lovely Miss Lynn. As you know, I've been writing about the Beatitudes with the emphasis on the infinitive "to be" with God as "I AM." So this post struck a melodic chord in my heart! Thank you.
