“My beloved child, son, daughter:
“Do NOT fear, I AM with you.”
“I shall never leave you, nor abandon you.”
~The Great And Eternal I AM
Exodus chapter 3 God speaks to Moses and gives him instructions
2 Suddenly the Angel of Yahweh appeared to him as a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw that the bush was on fire and that it didn’t burn up, 3-4 he went over to investigate. Then God called out to him, “Moses! Moses!”
“Who is it?” Moses asked.
5 “Don’t come any closer,” God told him. “Take off your shoes, for you are standing on Holy Ground.
6 I AM the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” Moses covered his face with his hands, for he was afraid to look at God.
14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM,” and He said, “You will say this to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”
15 God, moreover, said to Moses, “Thus you will say to the children of Israel, ‘The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’
Joshua 1 God speaks to Joshua and provides him instructions
1 After the death of Moses, the Lord’s disciple, God spoke to Moses’ assistant, whose name was Joshua (the son of Nun), and said to him,
2 “Now that my disciple is dead, you are the new leader of Israel Lead my people across the Jordan River into the Promised Land.
3 I say to you what I said to Moses: ‘Wherever you go will be part of the land of Israel— 4 all the way from the Negeb Desert in the south to the Lebanon mountains in the north, and from the Mediterranean Sea in the west to the Euphrates River in the east, including all the land of the Hittites.’
5 No one will be able to oppose you as long as you live, for I WILL BE WITH YOU just as I WAS with Moses; I WILL NOT ABANDON YOU NOR FAIL TO HELP YOU.
6 “Be strong and brave, for you will be a successful leader of my people; and they shall conquer all the land I promised to their ancestors. 7 You need only to be strong and courageous and to obey to the letter every law Moses gave you, for if you are careful to obey every one of them, you will be successful in everything you do.
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
8 Constantly remind the people about these laws, and you yourself must think about them every day and every night so that you will be sure to obey all of them. For only then will you succeed. 9 Yes, be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
1 Chronicles 28 King David addresses the people and his Son Solomon
28 David now summoned all of his officials to Jerusalem—the political leaders, the commanders of the twelve army divisions, the other army officers, those in charge of his property and livestock, and all the other men of authority in his kingdom. 2 He rose and stood before them and addressed them as follows:
“My brothers and my people! It was my desire to build a temple in which the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord could rest—a place for our God to live in. I have now collected everything that is necessary for the building, 3 but God has told me, ‘You are not to build my temple, for you are a warrior and have shed much blood.’
4 “Nevertheless, the Lord God of Israel has chosen me from among all my father’s family to begin a dynasty that will rule Israel forever; he has chosen the tribe of Judah, and from among the families of Judah, my father’s family; and from among his sons, the Lord took pleasure in me and has made me king over all Israel. 5 And from among my sons—the Lord has given me many children—he has chosen Solomon to succeed me on the throne of his kingdom of Israel. 6 He has told me, ‘Your son Solomon shall build my Temple; for I have chosen him as my son and I will be his father. 7 And if he continues to obey my commandments and instructions as he has until now, I will make his kingdom last forever.’”
8 Then David turned to Solomon and said:
“Here before the leaders of Israel, the people of God, and in the sight of our God, I am instructing you to search out every commandment of the Lord so that you may continue to rule this good land and leave it to your children to rule forever.
9 Solomon, MY SON, get to know the God of your fathers.
Worship and serve HIM with a clean heart and a willing mind, for the Lord sees every heart and understands and knows every thought.
If you seek Him, you will find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will permanently throw you aside. 10 So be very careful, for the Lord has chosen you to build his holy Temple. Be strong and do as He commands.”
2 Chronicles 7 The Lord appears to Solomon and provides him instructions
12 One night the Lord appeared to Solomon and told him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this Temple as the place where I want you to sacrifice to me. 13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust swarms to eat up all of your crops, or if I send an epidemic among you..”
14 then if my people will humble themselves and pray, and search for me, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear them from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land.
15 I will listen, wide awake, to every prayer made in this place. 16 For I have chosen this Temple and sanctified it to be my home forever; my eyes and my heart shall always be here.
17 “As for yourself, IF YOU FOLLOW ME AS YOUR FATHER DAVID DID 18 then I will see to it that you and your descendants will always be the kings of Israel; 19 but if you don’t follow me, if you refuse the laws I have given you and worship idols, 20 then I will destroy my people from this land of mine that I have given them, and this Temple shall be destroyed even though I have sanctified it for myself. Instead, I will make it a public horror and disgrace. 21 Instead of its being famous, all who pass by will be incredulous.
“‘Why has the Lord done such a terrible thing to this land and to this Temple?’ they will ask.
22 “And the answer will be, ‘Because his people abandoned the Lord God of their fathers, the God who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and they worshiped other gods instead. That is why he has done all this to them.’”
Isaiah 43 God speaks ‘do not fear, I AM with you. I WILL BE WITH YOU.’
43 But now the Lord who created you, O Israel, says: Don’t be afraid, for I have ransomed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.
2 When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I WILL be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up—the flames will not consume you.
3 For I AM the Lord your God, your Savior, The Holy One of Israel. I gave Egypt and Ethiopia and Seba to Cyrus in exchange for your freedom, as your ransom.
4 Others died that you might live; I traded their lives for yours because you are precious to me and honored, and I love you.
5 Don’t be afraid, for I AM with you. I WILL gather you from east and west, 6 from north and south. I WILL bring my sons and daughters back to Israel from the farthest corners of the earth. 7 All who claim me as their God will come, for I have made them for my glory; I created them. 8 Bring them back to me.
Listen to me, O my servant Israel, O my chosen ones:
2 The Lord who made you, who will help you, says: O servant of mine, don’t be afraid. O Jerusalem, my chosen ones, don’t be afraid. 3 For I will give you abundant water for your thirst and for your parched fields. And I will pour out my Spirit and my blessings on your children.
4 They shall thrive like watered grass, like willows on a riverbank.
5 “I am the Lord’s,” they’ll proudly say, or, “I am a Jew,” and tattoo upon their hands the name of God or the honored name of Israel.
6 The Lord, the King of Israel, says—yes, it is Israel’s Redeemer, the Lord Almighty, who says it— I AM the First and Last; there is no other God.
Isaiah 48 The Instructions Of The Great I AM
12 Listen to me, my people, my chosen ones! I ALONE AM GOD. I AM the First; I AM the Last. 13 It was my hand that laid the foundations of the earth; the palm of my right hand spread out the heavens above; I spoke and they came into being.
16 Come closer and listen. I have always told you plainly what would happen, so that you could clearly understand. And now the Lord God and his Spirit have sent me with this message
17 The Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, says: ” I AM the Lord your God, who punishes you for your own good and leads you along the paths that you should follow.
Oh, IF YOU WOULD ONLY LISTEN AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS!!! Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river, and great waves of righteousness. 19 Then you would have become as numerous as the sands along the seashores of the world, too many to count, and there would have been no need for your destruction.”
We thank you Father In Heaven, for not abandoning us in the midst of our storms. For never denying us, and for never being too busy or occupied to hear our cries. How many times, have we each been ‘too busy’ to hear you? Or even worse ‘simply did not want to hear what you had to say’.
Forgive us, Father in Heaven. We cry out and plead, to YOU and YOU ALONE. For it is YOU ALONE WHO CREATED AND FORMED US. IT IS by your universal sovereign hand that we live or die.
