On Sunday, I got to preach a Mother’s Day Service at Harvest Time Assembly. What a joy it was.
Then I got up at 4am Monday Morning to go to work. I didn’t expect that this week all my days would be scheduled for 5am shifts.
The heart of the message I preached on Sunday was that life doesn’t run in the straight lines we fantasize it will. It is more like this:
Nonetheless, God knows where we are and what we are dealing with. He is not surprised. He is the great “I Am” as he told Moses in Exodus Chapter 3.
What that means is that God is:
1. Always existing
2. Independently existing
3. The “Becoming One”
He is “becoming” whatever we need him to be right in the middle of our unexpected chaos.
When you are hungry:
I am the bread of life. (John 6:48 NIV)
When you are in darkness:
“I am the light of the world.” (John 9:5 NIV)
When you are lost and defenseless:
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep”. (John 10:11 NIV)
When you are exhausted:
“The Lord is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation”. (Psalm 118:14 NIV)
Life doesn’t EVER goes like we expect it. However, you are not alone in it and when you walk with the Great I AM, you will equipped with what you need, when you need it.
Even if what you really need is a nap.
Like me. Naps are good.
