Who Am I?

Posted on August 16, 2017 at 7:10 AM


Good morning, my Lord! I am so blessed to call You “my Lord”! Who am I that You should be mindful of me? I am Your servant, Lord; yea, unworthy though I am, You have called me daughter, adopted me into Your family. You are my Father, God, and I love You. You are so good to me! You love me despite my weaknesses and mistakes. Your love is perfect and all encompassing.

David asked a question similar to mine; I suspect Holy Spirit brought it to my mind~

2 Samuel 7:18 The Message

King David went in, took his place before God, and prayed: “Who am I, my Master God, and what is my family, that you have brought me to this place in life? But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming, for you’ve also spoken of my family far into the future, given me a glimpse into tomorrow, my Master God! What can I possibly say in the face of all this? You know me, Master God, just as I am. You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who You are—out of Your very heart!—but You’ve let me in on it.

It’s true; it’s nothing I have earned, for how could one such as I earn anything that would impress my God? No, it’s Who You are, my God. Your supreme love nature called forth mankind, people for You to share Your love. You made mankind from the dirt of the earth then You breathed Your very life into us.


The enemy, hoping to spoil Your plan, 

crept into the homeland of Adam and deceived him into sinning against You. But it cannot ever win against You, Lord. You had a plan B, Jesus. Your beautiful Son came to earth and in His love sacrificed Himself for us, paying off the sin debt.


Now as we accept Jesus gift, we are freed from all of the enemy’s hold on us. We are able to love You Lord, and dance in Your honor praising and worshipping You! And Your love flows.

I’m remembering when Jesus healed a blind man. He took some dirt of the earth God created, and spit His sacred bodily fluids into the dirt making mud and smeared it onto the blind man’s eyes. 

John 9:5-7 (AMP)

5 As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world [giving guidance through My word and works].” 6 When He had said this, He spat on the ground and made mud with His saliva, and He spread the mud [like an ointment] on the man’s eyes. 7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went away and washed, and came back seeing.


Jesus is the Light of the World. He used His precious body fluid to make a mud to smear on the blind man’s eyes. As we were formed by God out of the dust of the earth He created, so Jesus did a creative miracle using spit, and the same dust of the earth, to bring Light restoring sight to the blind man. I recall thinking it kind of gross that He made mud with spittle. But as I look at it from this perspective it becomes a beautiful thing. Just a thought.


Rereading 2 Samuel 7:18 the last sentence caught my attention ~

You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who You are—out of Your very heart!—but You’ve let me in on it.

God sometimes does let us in on things we know not of by our own power. Has He done this for you? Will you share?

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
