Why is it so difficult for us to see God in the situation we are dealing with TODAY?
A Dr. once told me “It is much easier to see the hand of God in the aftermath of disaster then it is in the midst of the storm—never the less, He is there.”
The disciples in the boat during the storm struggled with the same problem. Jesus was right there lying in the boat beside them. Yet, they had great fear! (Luke 8:22) In the midst of a storm in your life, have you ever felt as the apostles did; like you needed to holler and wake Jesus up? I have!
In today’s tenuous world, we need more than hope for tomorrow, more than confidence in victories of the past. We need God in a big way today. In the middle of difficult circumstances faced today, there are two words that will give you the strength to make it through—right now.
Not just to get through, not just ‘make it’, but make it through today’s trial, triumphantly. Those two words are God’s name that He gave himself; I AM. He did not call himself, I WAS or I WILL BE, He gave himself the name, I AM.
Exodus 3:13-14 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.”
