Today's devotion is based on Exodus 3:14-15, "God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM' has sent me to you.'" 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 forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation."
When Moses asked for God's name, God replied by calling himself, "I AM." That might sound like a strange name to us. But consider how often Jesus, himself, used this name six times to bring comfort to the hearts of God's children.
We need to remember that through faith in Jesus, you are God's child. Just as God called Moses to be there for Israel, he has called you to be there for your family, friends, and neighbors—not to be the great I AM—but to point them to the great I AM.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for being consistent in who you are so that I can find regular comfort in who I am in and through Christ Jesus, my Savior. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
