The Great I Am
Exodus 3:13-14 “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?
14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” (KJV)
When God told Moses to tell the children of Israel that “I Am” has sent me, God was giving Moses a “blank check” to give to the children of Israel, with the signature of God on the check reading “The Great I Am.”
“I Am” is everything that God is, with nothing being left out. He is the Alpha and Omega and everything that is between. He is God that never slumbers or sleeps (Psalm 121:4 “Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.”
The same “blank check” that God gave to Moses for the Israelite’s at the burning bush can be used today by believers. The funds in God’s account are unlimited, and there is no such thing as His check “bouncing” or being returned stamped “non-sufficient funds.”
Because God is the great “I Am”, we can go to Him with our every need and have faith that it will be met because “I Am” is always faithful. All we have to do is fill in the spaces on the blank check with the need.
God is unlimited in what he can do. The only thing that God cannot do is fail!
