I Am

Isaiah 41:10- So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Bread, Water, Way, Truth, Life, Beginning, End, Love...these are just a few ways to describe God. This week God has been showing me who He is. I have Bible Verse cards that I flip over each week that I can see daily. Isaiah 41:10 was the verse from this week. I have had a lot on my mind this week with a lot of decisions to make. I have been praying for clarity and wisdom of God's will, and expecting an answer. Well, all week God has been showing me who He is. Tuesday night at church, the pastor was speaking out of John and John 1:1 begins with how the Word is God. So, he proceeded to go through knowing who God is. I thought, Ok??? I was expecting an answer to my prayers, not a lesson on who God is. I know who God is...So, I sort of dismissed the lesson but I kept praying, and expecting an answer for what I was praying for.

Then, my week went on and it was a tough one. All week the theme was the same. Knowing who God is and being patient. On several instances, God was telling me the same thing. Then Isaiah 41:10 was spoken into my life several times. My bible verse cards, the worship leader read it during worship, then it was read on the radio when I got in the car. I literally said out loud, "what God...what are you trying to show me with this...I don't want to miss what you have for me, please, please show me". Then I went to the church I used to go to. I was supposed to go last week, but couldn't because I had to go to Ohio suddenly. Well, today I went and it was amazing. I got to see exactly who my God was. God is bigger than anything. It is all about Him and is all for Him. He is the one in control and showed me that His will is perfect and He is perfect. That is who God is. He is perfection and there is nothing that goes on in my life that He is not in control of. He is the Word and His Word says that He is my God. He was with me today, as he is everyday being my strength and holding me up in His hand.
