(Exodus 3:13-14 AMP- And Moses said to GOD, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, THE GOD of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is HIS name? What shall I say to them? And GOD said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE; and HE said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you!)
In reading today’s focal passage, I was reminded of this powerful truth— in and through every situation and every circumstance the name of THE LORD is enough.
I dream and believe on a level that even I am often astonished by, but I know in my heart that as long as GOD is with me I have strength for all things. (Philippians 4:13 AMP- I have strength for all things in CHRIST WHO empowers me; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through HIM WHO infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in CHRIST’S sufficiency.)
But what happens when GOD calls us to do something that is so much greater than what we feel we have the ability to accomplish? What happens in those moments when we’re seeking HIS provision, but can’t necessarily feel HIS PRESENCE or hear HIS voice?
The answer is, whether we can hear HIS voice or feel HIM with us or not— HE’S always there. And we simply have to know and trust that what ever HE asks of us or wherever HE’S leading us, HE’S already prepared the way. (Exodus 23:20 NIV- See, I AM sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.)
I made a covenant with GOD that I would surrender to HIS Will and blindly follow wherever HE leads. Meaning, I don’t have to see to believe. I don’t have to know or even understand to trust HIS process.
I can tell you from experience that this is a journey that has not always been easy and I’ve certainly had moments when I’ve felt like giving up. But I can also tell you that choosing to trust HIM has been the best decision that I’ve ever made in my entire life. I am acutely aware of how HIS PRESENCE in my life is continually molding me and making me greater in HIM. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
As “genius” as I am, I’m still human and far from perfect. In all honesty, I still have moments where I feel inadequate and even unqualified to do the majority of what GOD has planted in my heart to accomplish. However, the beauty in that is, it’s not about what I feel, but in WHOM I trust because in HIM— I am sufficient.
Like Moses, I’ve had those “But LORD, what if?” moments and like Moses, GOD has always reminded me that in all things, in all situations, and in all circumstances— HIS name alone is enough!
I AM has sent me to you and today I just want to remind you that no matter what you’re going through or struggling with, GOD is with you. And in those moments when fear and doubt start to creep in remember that HE is enough and you are sufficient in HIM.
Dear HEAVENLY FATHER, today and everyday, let YOUR HOLY PRESENCE ever-increase within our hearts and in our lives. LORD, no matter how tedious the journey help us to trust YOU always and never doubt. Help us to realize and understand that YOU are more than sufficient, YOU will sustain us, and in YOU our worth and value are incomparable. ABBA, whenever we lose sight of that truth, remind us that to simply call on YOUR name is enough. In the name of JESUS CHRIST, YOUR precious SON, and our LORD and SAVIOR— I pray, Amen and so be it.
“If you took the love of all the best mothers and fathers who ever lived (think about that for a moment) — all the goodness, kindness, patience, fidelity, wisdom, tenderness, strength and love — and united all those virtues in one person, that person would only be a faint shadow of the love and mercy in the heart of GOD for you and me.” ~ Brennan Manning
