SPEAKING INQUIRY

I AM……HIS

Home/I AM Series/I AM……HIS

WOW!! It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of the “I AM” series. It went by quickly but it’s been such a joy for us to share in this journey together! I pray that as we continue to walk togeth-er that we can encourage each other when we aren’t feeling loved, needed or enough! That’s tru-ly what the body of Christ is all about.

I AM……HIS” packs a big punch!! Think about this:
1.    Jesus paid it all for us. I Corinthians 7:23 says, “You were bought with a price

[paid for by Christ]; don’t become slaves of people.”
2.   God cared about you long before you cared about Him. Isaiah 43:1 says, “But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, “Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine.”
3.    Living a life as His is living a life of SUBMISSION and SURRENDER to the KING OF KINGS. Matthew 10:38 says, “If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worth of being mine.”

God is serious about you; He takes great care of His own! From the beginning of time He has shown His constant care, unconditional love, and faithfulness. He took care of Joseph when he was thrown into the well. He watched over Hannah while she was barren and answered the cry of her heart to have a child. He gave Ruth a husband and took care of Naomi too. He tenderly healed the woman with the issue of blood. He comforted the grief-ridden Mary and Martha and raised their brother, Lazarus, from the dead. The stories go on and on…….

Tucked in the middle of the book of Judges is an amazing story of a woman who obviously rested in the fact that she was HIS!

Judges 13:1 – And then the People of Israel were back at it again, doing what was evil in God’s sight. God put them under the domination of the Philistines for forty years. At that time there was a man named Manoah from Zorah from the tribe of Dan. His wife was barren and childless. The angel of God appeared to her and told her, “I know that you are barren and childless, but you’re going to become pregnant and bear a son. But take much care: Drink no wine or beer; eat nothing ritually unclean. You are, in fact, pregnant right now, carrying a son. No razor will touch his head—the boy will be God’s Nazirite from the moment of his birth. He will launch the deliverance from Philistine oppression.” The woman went to her husband and said, “A man of God came to me. He looked like the angel of God—terror laced with glory! I didn’t ask him where he was from and he didn’t tell me his name, but he told me, ‘You’re pregnant. You’re going to give birth to a son. Don’t drink any wine or beer and eat nothing ritually unclean. The boy will be God’s Nazirite from the moment of birth to the day of his death.’”

Manoah was the father of Samson. He married a woman who God used to birth a child who would begin the deliverance of Israel from Philistine oppression. God knew He could work His plan through the wife of Manoah.

What about you? Are you living in such a way that He can work His plan through you?

Paul shows us in Acts 21 what it’s like to rest completely in HIM. Paul knew what was going to hap-pen to him when he went to Jerusalem. But He was laser focused on the call God placed on his life. I AM His no matter what!! Sometimes that means walking through difficulty for the cause of Christ and others. Sometimes that means standing alone like Manoah and his wife.

When I think of the life of Paul I think of the old hymn “The Solid Rock” or today’s version – Cornerstone

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness,
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus name.
Christ alone; cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior’s love
Through the storm, He is Lord,
Lord of all.

When Darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

He is my Hope and Stay. He is the Solid Rock. My anchor holds because of His unchanging grace.
When the rest of the world gives way, we MUST stay anchored in Him! Steadfast, immovable, and ready for what God has for our life.

God wants to work His plan through us….and He wants us to know I am Loved, I am Needed, I am Enough and I am His.

Which “I am” do you need to be most reminded of today? I am Loved? I am Needed? I am Enough? I am His?

Spend some time in the presence of God and let Him speak to you about how much you are loved, needed, enough and His.

Hugs,
Marie

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However
    just imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    clips, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Great blog!
