I AM that I AM part 1

burning-bush[1]“Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush”  Exodus 3:1-2

God’s revelation, the bible, is a story about individual people; who display God’s glory, as He worked through them, and as they rose to heights that could only be attained by God.

Moses was a Hebrew destined by the Egyptians for death, but God had other plans, and He prevailed. Moses grew in the house of Pharaoh and became a general, according to the historian Josephus, of great stature and to the envy of his peers. He was destined by Pharaoh’s daughter for greatness, perhaps even to become Pharaoh himself, but God had other plans, and He prevailed. As a result, Moses was endowed with God-given faith, and ‘Chose rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season’ Hebrews 11:25.

Moses, the general, who lived in Pharaoh’s courts, became a shepherd, a detestable occupation to Egyptians. It is here we pick up our verses, and understand something of the man that God prepared to be His friend, who would look on the Great I AM – face to face. For forty years, Moses learned who he was, and what he was capable of doing. For forty more years, Moses learned what he was not capable of doing as he reflected on his error and sin, which grew out of his own arrogance and pride. During the last forty years of Moses’ life, he would learn who God was, and what He was capable of doing – for His own glory.

The Christian is a person who learns humility at Calvary, where through the prism of Christ’s sacrifice, he sees his sin that put Jesus there, and the death that secured his forgiveness!

“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ” 2 Corinthians 4:6

About Joe Durso

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
