When Moses was getting ready to come down out of the mountain and return to the people with the 10 Commandments, he asked GOD……..who shall I say sent me?
I Am that I Am (אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, ʾehyeh ʾašer ʾehyeh [ʔehˈje ʔaˈʃer ʔehˈje]) is a common English translation (JPS among others) of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible whenMoses asked for his name (Exodus 3:14). It is one of the most famous verses in the Torah. Hayah means “existed” or “was” in Hebrew; “ehyeh” is the first person singular imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as “I will be” (or “I shall be”), for example, at Exodus 3:12. Ehyeh asher ehyeh literally translates as “I Will Be What I Will Be”, with attendant theological and mystical implications in Jewish tradition. However, in most English Bibles, this phrase is rendered as I am that I am.”
God in this simple phrase, declares his HOLINESS. I am now, I have always been and I will always be. WOW! What a statement! It summarily states God’s Omnipresent nature. It speaks of endless and unlimited potential. When I stop to think about this, it blows my mind. Bottom line, God exists OUTSIDE of time. All of human history is before God at all times. There is no past, no future…………….all is PRESENT to GOD.
While going through treatment for cancer, I began to do what I called affirmations. Basically I spoke things that I desired as if they already existed. All of these statement began with I AM. I must have said, I am HEALTHY over a million times. I was making statements outside of my present human experience. I believe that in doing this I asked the divine to make them a reality in my present life…………..spoken in faith.
Doing this practice has made all of the difference in my personal life. It has healed me on every possible level and made me whole. I am continuing to do this now to continue to call into existence, my best LIFE. A life full of contentment, blessing and strength. I AM BLESSED!! I AM HAPPY!! I AM DEEPLY CONTENT! I AM SUCCESSFUL…………..AMEN!!!
