The I Am of All I Ams
I recently completed a YouVersion reading plan "The Book of Mysteries" by Jonathan Cahn. Day 2 of this plan was mind-blowing and life altering for me.
Mr Cahn shares with his readers the name of God, YHVH, (Yahweh) the sacred name of God that is fairly familiar to Bible readers.
"It is the most sacred of Names, so sacred some refuse to say it. And yet you say it all the time."
"When you speak of yourself, you say the Name. When you feel happy, you say, 'I am happy.' And when you're not, you say 'I am sad'. When you tell others who you are, you say, 'I am' followed by your name. "YHVH means 'I Am.'
Isn't that profound? God is so woven into our existence that we aren't able to speak of ourselves without first speaking of Him!
This realization has made me very aware that when I speak negative words about myself, I am actually taking His name in vain! I am His precious, chosen daughter. He created me for good works, yet many times I am blasting near profanities in His face when I speak negatively about myself.
Let's all be careful when we are tempted to say, "I am worthless, I am stupid, I am a bad mom." Instead, let's remember that He is our origin, our creator, who gives us our very breath, and let's praise Him remembering that "I am enough" because I AM goes before me!!
I highly recommend this plan.
