Living as a disciple of Christ is a wildly amazing journey! Though exciting and blessed, at times it involves a great deal of suffering. In those heated moments of trial, it sometimes seems like our life is on fire, with difficulty happening all around us. Several years ago, I endured a fiery season experiencing a series of denial letters from potential employers, financial hardship and what seemed like an endless amount of difficulties. But it was in that season of trial that I was reminded of the familiar story of Moses and the burning bush. When God called out to Moses, He used that which was on fire to reveal His identity, I AM WHO I AM. And although the bush was on fire, it was not consumed. In my season of trial, I learned something vital: that the goodness of God's character is infinite. I experienced His direction in the unknown, provision through the wilderness, strength in times of weakness, and everlasting love each day. Similarly to the burning bush, that fiery season was not meant to consume me, but to show me a greater revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. For this I'm grateful because for me there is truly nothing greater than knowing Jesus.God's wonderfully infinite and mysterious character demands that we follow Him daily in order to know Him more. Because He yearns to give us a deeper revelation of Himself, He gets our attention in ways both dramatic and subtle. He is often best seen in times of suffering.The Great I Am is a devotional providing daily whispers from God's Word, revealing Who He is, what He is doing, and how He is exactly Whom and what we need Him to be. For anyone desiring to know God more personally, The Great I Am provides biblical insight on the invaluable treasure of our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
