Remember who's on your side

…The Lord is the everlasting God…
Have you ever felt like God was asking too much of you? Circumstances can make it feel that way at times.
Moses certainly felt this way. Remember when God spoke to him through the burning bush? God told Moses to go before Pharaoh, the most powerful man in the world, and to demand the release of the Israelites from captivity.
Well, Moses was extremely afraid. He had killed a man for mistreating the Jews and he had fled to the desert to hide, not to get an assignment from God.
So Moses asked God, "How shall I go? Who will I say sent me?" Moses was saying, "What are my credentials? What qualifies me? I feel unqualified."
But God spoke to him and said, "Tell them, ‘The great I AM sent you.'" The name I AM is the personal private covenant name of God. It signifies God's eternal self-existence. He is forever I AM… the ever-present One… the everlasting One… the same in the beginning as in the end.
And the great I AM was faithful. And Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.
When you are faced with a difficult challenge, remember who your God is. He is I AM, the ever-living and everlasting God. He is on your side. And his strength is your strength every step of the way!
REMEMBER WHO YOUR GOD IS. HE IS I AM, THE EVER-LIVING AND EVERLASTING GOD.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
