“I AM” means that Jesus is Alpha (the beginning) and Omega (the end), and He is also “I AM” the present. He is not “I Was” or “I Will Be” but He is here, with us now, with whatever we need from Him, right now. I am who I have always been and I am who I always will be; I Am present (not that He was or will be but that is He is now—He will be there with us every step of the way, He will be present.)
Exodus 3:13–14 “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.”
John 8:58–“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
Personal notes from a “Work+Wonder” Instagram story— (available here: )
“I Am” takes on a whole new meaning when we make our own affirmation statements that connect us to the Christ. We need to refer to ourselves in positive affirmations and recognize our worth especially in the eyes of our Savior. All that we are is because of Jesus Christ, the great I Am. Remember how magnificent we already are. We need to tell ourselves we are capable. I Am represents Him. Because of Him, we are. The words we say after “I am” are so sacred.
