Jesus Is Everything You Need
This is an encore post from October 2011.
In the Old Testament, the Lord revealed Himself to Moses as YHWH, “I AM.” Exodus 3:14 reveals: “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” ’ ” (NIV). In Hebrew, there is no vowel system, so the sacred name of God was “YHWH.” The English language substitutes vowels to become the word “Yahweh.” When the sacred name is used in English Bibles, all capital letters are used for “LORD.” YHWH was the most reverent, holy name for God. It was too sacred even to say aloud. YHWH comes from the Hebrew word “to be.” God was going to be all that Moses and the Israelites needed.
Exodus 3:15 says: “God also said to Moses, ‘Say to the Israelites, “The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.” ‘This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation’ ” (NIV). God was not only going to be everything that Moses needed, but He would be everything that every future generation would need, as well. And He would be remembered by one simple name: I AM.
In the New Testament, Jesus reveals Himself as YHWH, “I AM.” John 8:58 says: “ ‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born,
I am!’ ” (NIV). Jesus was to be everything humanity needed: a messiah, the ultimate salvation, and everlasting life.
Jesus is everything and anything you need. He is I AM.
Do you need a Savior? I AM.
Do you need a Deliverer? I AM.
Do you need the Prince of Peace? I AM.

Do you need a friend? I AM.
Do you need healing? I AM.
Do you need to be loved? I AM.

What do you need today? Ask Jesus. He is I AM.
