The name of I AM is how God chose to introduce Himself, becoming so sacred that in Judaism, the name is not to be spoken. The significance of God’s self-given name encompasses all that He is, and how we are to relate to Him. When Moses asked God for His name, the response was a surprising “I AM WHO I AM . . . This is My name forever” (Ex. 3:14-15). With this statement, God declared that He is self-existent, eternal, self-sufficient, self-directed, and unchanging, and He’s the one who will always be. By this statement God also declares that He is present. Despite His nature being so different from humans and their man-made gods, God is present with His people. He desired to deliver them, and He intended to be known throughout all generations.
God, our God, the great I AM, is un changing. He’s the same today, yesterday, and forever. He is present, and is still our faithful wonder-working God whos desire is to show Himself strong on behalf of us His people.
LORD God, how we praise! You for being our ever present God. The I AM . . .
