I AM WHO I AM – June 17, 2023

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?” 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 by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation.”
Exodus 3:13-15

Devotion based on Exodus 3:13-15

See series: Devotions

It’s one of the first things you do when you meet someone. You ask their name! If you don’t know a person’s name, can you really say you know that person? It’s hard to have a relationship with someone if you don’t know their name.

God provided Moses with his name for his own benefit and the benefit of God’s people: “I AM WHO I AM—The LORD.” Our God depends on no one else for rank or meaning. He relies on no one else for strength or value. He is who he is! He is God. Unlike any other, apart from any other, far superior to any other, He is “I AM.” He is “the LORD.”

God gave Moses his covenant name. God is faithful and filled with full and free forgiveness. For all the times that we forget God’s name or forget to praise him, there is forgiveness. For all the times that we misuse his name or elevate our own name or someone else’s higher than his, there is forgiveness. For all the times that we doubt his forgiveness or question his love, I AM forgives us.

I AM WHO I AM—yesterday, today, and forever. His word will not change. His promises will never fail. His love endures forever. Rejoice that the LORD is who he is—our Savior God.

Dear Lord, I thank you for the privilege of calling on your name. I am blessed to be in your family and to have a loving Father like you. Remind me daily of your name and love, through Jesus. Amen.
