God’s Name – I AM (Exodus 3 : 11-15 Devotional)

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” 12 He said, “But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.” 13 Then Moses said to God, “If I come to the people of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I am has sent me to you.’” 15 God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘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, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.

Exodus 3:11-15

After believing in Christ for many years, how much do we know about God? How deep is our relationship with Him? Many people know God but only think that God is the supreme judge, and perhaps people are full of religions, laws, and regulations. But what exactly is the heart of God? Do we know the nature of God and his attributes? This summer we started a new series titled “God Is”. What exactly is the God we know? What kind of God is God willing to reveal to us about himself? Pray that the Holy Spirit opens our spiritual eyes, let us know and experience who God is! It is not a religion, ritual, ordinance or law that allows us to have a relationship that God most desires.

Moses met God in the wilderness. God wanted to send Moses to save His people from slavery. Moses asked God what His name was so that Moses could tell the Israelites. Names are unique to each of us throughout our lives. It also tells the relationship between us and the people. God answered, “I AM”!

Our life is full of many needs, and his answer is “I AM”! It turns out that God has thousands of names to meet our thousands of needs! I hope that in the summer months, we can have the deepest understanding of God himself and his heart! Let him be our life’s closest friend, confidant, and life guide!

And we not only know God intellectually, but experience God’s presence, salvation, and guidance in our lives. As Job said, I heard about you before and now I see you with my own eyes!

In Christ Alone
by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend

In Christ alone, my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
