In my own relationship with God, it seems that He always answers my life’s most desperate questions - at first - as though they were “Who…?” questions.
If my hearts cry is, “What are we going to do?”
His response seems to be “I AM!”
If I ask, “How am I going to make ends meet?”
He seems to reply, “I AM!”
“Where can I go for an answer to our dilemma?”
I feel He is saying, “I AM!”
“Why is this happening?”
I think He says, “I AM! So trust Me.”
By initially responding with “I AM!” to our requests, I think that God points us to Himself which may be His way of saying, “Trust Me and let Me guide you to each of the answers for your important questions – in My timing - because what you really need is a real and living relationship with Myself. So don’t run off and become independent with any knowledge, revelation or provision that you receive from Me.”
Maybe it's just me (Not!) but my desire to be self sufficient often clouds my pursuit of knowing God for Who He really is; which - if we will truly realize it - is our life's greatest opportunity.
Look below at a list of human needs and the I AM statements made by Jesus Christ that apply to them.
