Praise & Shine 53: The Great I Am

Often in history people’s names were used to describe their character or even their profession. Even today we sometimes receive nicknames or superlatives; however, these names do not define us.

When people think of God, and who his is they often try to put God in a box that define him.

Some place God in a box defining Him as the Creator who has created the world and now sits back on His thrown watching. There are others who define Him as a God who “grants wishes”. And still others define God and angry and vengeful, who is waiting for an opportunity for punishment.

The problem with this thinking is that it limits God. These boxes are definitions that we have come up with to define God. They don’t come close to describing Gods true character.

So, who is God really?

God described himself as self-sufficient, self-sustaining and powerful over all things. God who was, who is, and who will be. He. Is. infinite!

In Exodus 3:13-14 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.’”

HE is the GREAT I AM…


God is in control of everything and is sovereign over everything. He Is Who He Is.
