If you have never ‘met’ Jesus Christ, this is a perfect introduction.
If you have followed Him for years, this will draw you even closer. A proper sense of who God is, what He has done, and what He will do for you is the only way to see yourself and your circumstances clearly – and it will transform everything about you.
When you know the Lord as your Identity, your Deliverer, your Savior and your Victory, you can take who you are and where you are and fold them under His protection. As God miraculously teaches the Israelites, so He will teach you–you are intimately known and loved by the Great I AM, who is in control of everything. And that changes everything.
A trial is a difficult circumstance allowed by God to transform your conduct and your character. Don’t despair when you encounter trials – often God allows them so He can lead you through.
Running for their lives from the Egyptian army and facing the Red Sea, the Israelites were desperate – but God made a way! Are you facing a trial you cannot fix yourself? As He was for the Israelites, our faithful God will be your victory too…
Open your Bible to Exodus 14, for the final message in our series, I AM: Finding Your Identity in God.
I Am Your Victory | I AM Finding Your Identity in God | Exodus 14
The number one question on our minds when it comes to God’s deliverance is, “when?” Often we wonder, why the delay? Is God ever going to come through? God delays deliverance for some very good reasons. He wants to drive the doubting out of our lives so we will do exactly what the Word of the Lord says.
God Himself is your deliverer! Right now, the Lord is at work – He has a plan, and He is changing hearts. When it feels like God is delaying, remember this: He’s making you spiritually fit for what He is already planning to do. You need only to wait in faith… everything God has promised is coming! In the end there will be a greater victory. Open your Bible to Exodus 5, and learn to rest in God’s promise of deliverance.
Insecurity is debilitating. You don’t know who you are until you know who God is. God has made you perfectly for that which he wants you to do. In Exodus 4, Pastor James shows us a biblical strategy for overcoming personal insecurity.
Conquering Insecurity Part 1
God has a plan for every person – He wants to work for you, in you, and through you. But when God calls us to live out our purpose, we often encounter paralyzing insecurity… the awareness of the gap between who we want to be and who we actually are.
This week in Exodus 4, we return to Moses’ story, as God calls him to boldly follow. Though filled with flaws and failures, God teaches Moses (and us!) an important message about how to truly conquer that insecurity.
