God made clear  to Moses, that going forward, He would be known as I AM Who I AM.  When one thinks about the implications of that name, it is staggering.  God has the mastery of the universe–yet, his top priority is to have fellowship with us.  Still in the center of it all God makes clear that He is in fact God and He is calling the shots.

I Am is not subject to change.  He is not some statue of carving that we form or ideal we make up in our minds that meet our vision of what a God should be.  HE is omnipotent, omnicent and omnipresent. He spoke the universe into being and controls the largest galaxy and the smallest atoms.  He is God.  His name makes clear that he will never bow to our whims or whimsy. While he loves us and seeks to bring us eternal life with him–It will be on His terms, not ours.  God will never change; he is the same yesterday, today and forever.

It is said, that God created man in his image–and man has been trying to return the favor ever since. While cute, that is never going to happen.  Even in his name, I AM reminds us that he is the one stable thing in a crazy changing world.  We worship I AM–we need to do that on His terms, and understand that it is US that will conform to his image–and not the reverse!

God Bless You

Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”

14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.[c] This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

15 God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord,[d] 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.
