Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him may remain with you, so that you may not sin.” — Exodus 20:20

Most people have had their eyes tested at least once in their lives. Seeing 20/20 is a good thing. If the test has you seeing less than 20/20 you will probably find yourself with a prescription for glasses to improve your vision.

I found it interesting that this verse is 20:20. God desires us to see the sin in our lives for repentance and for avoidance from, to give us a reverence for Him and a real sense of judgement for sin.

The Israelites were tested in the wilderness because God wanted a humble nation whose heart was turned toward God in obedience and trust.

 You shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.  — Deuteronomy 8:2

God loves you. God wants the best for you. Testing is to make you more aware (help you see 20/20) so you may fear, revere God.

I Am God

“I, even I, am the Lord, And there is no savior besides Me. “It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed, And there was no strange god among you; So you are My witnesses,” declares the Lord, “And I am God. — Isaiah 43:11-12

As Pharaoh drew near, the sons of Israel looked, and behold, the Egyptians were marching after them, and they became very frightened; so the sons of Israel cried out to the Lord. Then they said to Moses, “Is it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you dealt with us in this way,  bringing us out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, ‘Leave us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the         Egyptians than to die in the wilderness.” — Exodus 14:10-12

Often times we can’t see past our circumstances to see that God has our future covered. We want to run back to the familiar even though God has a better life planned for us. We have a choice (again with the choices) — trust God with your life or stay in bondage, slavery where you are.

Jesus offers a way out. He offers freedom right where you are. Are you ready to be free from the bondage of sin and the overwhelming circumstances you’re in? Come to Him. He is waiting.

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. — Matthew 11:28

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?”

Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. — John 8:31-36

Do You Believe?

King Agrippa, do you believe the Prophets? I know that you do.” Agrippa replied to Paul, “In a short time you will persuade me to   become a  Christian.” And Paul said, “I would wish to God, that whether in a short or long time, not only you, but also all who hear me this day, might become such as I am, except for these chains.” — Acts 26:27-29

Are you a Christian? One who believes that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross washing away your sin, was buried, and 3 days later rose from the dead? Do you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus? Will you confess Him to others?

Are you one who doesn’t yet believe? Are you desiring the freedom from shame and guilt? Believe now, confessing your sin before God and your need of Him in your life. Trust Jesus with your life and confess Him as your Lord. Today is the day to choose life. Eternal life. Won’t you come? Come to Jesus?

Inspiration Of God

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. — 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Who is your authority in matters of life? Morality? Decision making? Spiritual development?

God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”God, furthermore, said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations. — Exodus 3:14-15

Your name, O Lord, is everlasting, Your remembrance, O Lord, throughout all generations. — Psalm 135:13

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. — Hebrews 13:8

God is. God was. God will always be. God is I AM. Forever. Everlasting for all generations. The same . . . yesterday . . . today . . . forever!

I don’t know about you but I can use some consistency in my life and it’s nice that we can pass that along to the next generation.

Hope your day is filled with peace knowing the great I AM.
