God is the God of every age
Today’s devotion is based on Exodus 3:15, “God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ “This is my name.
It’s easy to view the Bible and think of God as the God of the past since the Bible tells us about what he has done in the past. Perhaps Moses felt like the God of his forefathers was a God of the past. But when God told Moses his name is “I AM,” he wanted Moses to know that he was not simply the God of the past but of every age.
The same Lord who came to Moses in a burning bush came in human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ and proved he is the God and Savior of every generation, all people of all time, by taking up the sins of every generation and dying. Then he rose from the dead. Unlike any other historical figure, he lives. So, unlike other historical figures, he does know you. He is the God of every age, which means he is your God too!
Please pray with me: Lord, my God, and Savior, thank you for making your power and love known to every generation. Use me to tell the next. Amen.
