This message is the continuation of the previous one
3. I am Jehovah (Yahweh) – the Existing One, God is the source, the substance, the beginning of everything (Genesis 15:7)
When God declared His great promises to Abram, he said to God: What is that for all the blessings and abundances that You promise me because I will not have any child to receive my inheritance? My servants will have it (Genesis 15:2-3)
It was then that God started to plant new convictions into Abram’s life, making sure that Abram started to live from what God promised and believed; unaffected by the outward facts (Genesis 15:4-6)
To His promises and the response of the conviction that Abram showed to God, He sealed it by presenting a spiritual dimension that will also be accessed by the next generation after Abram – He revealed His name! He revealed Himself to Abram as Yahweh – the Existing One, means He is the source, substance, the beginning and core of everything
For us who live from Abraham’s faith, as the spiritual descendant of Abraham, God wants us to build a conviction that if He has promised – no matter what the promise can be fulfilled in our lives, realize and be sure of this promise is fully fulfilled in our lives. What we need to do is keep merging ourselves with His plan and always listen to the direction or guidance of the Spirit!
What God needs to make His promises fulfilled in our lives is our will to work with Him! He has planned and set to involve us, use us to start something divine in this world so that in the end all nations will see the glorious God’s workhands (Psalms 92:12-15; 1 Peter 2:9)
By consistently following the Spirit’s guidance, what we actually need to fulfill God’s plans – but we don’t have any, God Himself will give it to us! Always remember, He is the Existing One! He is the core, source, substance of everything that exists, that we need to fulfill His plan! Without Him, we can do nothing, only by Him what we need, what we don’t have initially then we will begin to achieve and enjoy (John 1:1-3; Hebrews 11:1-3)
By accessing the spiritual dimension that God unlocked to Abram when God promised him an heir – When he started to lose faith because he felt impossible to have child, but through God’s promise, Abram’s condition changed so drastically and dramatically (Romans 4:16-24) – we will also experience the same breakthrough! No matter what bad facts that hinder our destiny journey that we have go through, ask Holy Spirit to help us to access the spiritual dimension about the existence of Yahweh – the Existing One, so that in and through our lives, God is pleased to start something divine!
In the name of Jesus, there will be something divine that God starts in the lives of the readers of this Daily Devotion so that your daily lives begin to manifest His divinity and sovereignty. Let it be done, in the of Jesus! #ILoveGod
