Then God said to Moses, “Tell them, ‘I AM WHO I AM.’ When you go to the Israelites, tell them, ‘I AM’ sent me to you.” (Exodus 3:14 ERV)
God, you have been my king for a long time. The whole earth has seen you save us over and over again. You parted the Red Sea by your power. You broke the heads of that sea monster in Egypt. You crushed the heads of the sea monster Leviathan. You fed it to the creatures of the desert. You opened up streams and springs. You dried up rivers that flow all year long. You rule over the day and the night. You created the sun and the moon. You decided where the borders of the earth would be. You made both summer and winter. (Psalm 74:12-17 NIRV)
“But in your great mercy you did not abandon them to die in the wilderness. The pillar of cloud still led them forward by day, and the pillar of fire showed them the way through the night. You sent your good Spirit to instruct them, and you did not stop giving them manna from heaven or water for their thirst. For forty years you sustained them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing. Their clothes did not wear out, and their feet did not swell! (Nehemiah 9:19-21 NLT)
I tell you not to worry about your life. Don’t worry about having something to eat, drink, or wear. Isn’t life more than food or clothing? Can worry make you live longer? Don’t worry and ask yourselves, “Will we have anything to eat? Will we have anything to drink? Will we have any clothes to wear?” Only people who don’t know God are always worrying about such things. Your Father in heaven knows you need all of these. Don’t worry about tomorrow. It will take care of itself. You have enough to worry about today. (Matthew 6:25, 27, 31, 32, 34 CEVDCUS06)
I asked God for the words to tell you today, none of mines seemed enough to answer the questions of his people, but I praise his Holy Name, his words are sufficient.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways, says the Lord. For just as the heavens are exalted above the earth, so also are my ways exalted above your ways, and my thoughts above your thoughts. And in the same manner as rain and snow descend from heaven, and no longer return there, but soak the earth, and water it, and cause it to bloom and to provide seed to the sower and bread to the hungry, so also will my word be, which will go forth from my mouth. It will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish whatever I will, and it will prosper in the tasks for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:8-11 CPDV)
