LESSON EIGHT

Instrument of Wonders

Background Reading:
Key Verses:
“That they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob has appeared to you.” Exodus 4:5
“I have written to you fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you young men, because you are strong, and the Word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.” 1 John 2:14

As we begin today, let’s take a moment to regain our context.

In Lesson 7, we found Moses on the ‘west side of the wilderness’ asking God the very important question of ‘who am I, but more importantly, who are You?’ God re-introduced Himself to Moses as ‘I AM’ or ‘Yahweh’, a Name of God that had not yet been revealed to the children of Israel. By giving Himself this memorial name, God forever established His faithfulness to His covenant people in times past, present, and future.

Too often our identity is found in a material possession or social status. When asking ourselves, ‘Who am I?’, be certain the answer is bound in the heart of Christ. He is everything we can not be and sufficient to fill every needy place. He is beautiful, all-knowing, strong, self-assured, and so much more so we do not have to be! When our lives are entertwined with His Spirit, we will never have to long to be more than we are, for HE IS. Praise Him!
