Weekly Pursuit – Week 1 of August

Verses:

Exo. 6:8 “And I will bring you to the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob; and I will give it to you as a possession. I am Jehovah.”

 

Excerpts:

Young people, my burden is especially for you. I am grateful to the Lord for your faithfulness to His recovery. But I realize that there is a long journey ahead of you and that many trials and tests await you. I want to testify to you that the very God whom you are serving is not only El Shaddai but also Jehovah. Because He is the One who is, He will fulfill all that He has promised. I may not be able to keep my word because I may cease to be. But because Jehovah exists eternally and because He is the reality of the verb to be, He will fulfill whatever He has spoken. When you encounter tests, trials, and difficulties, you should say, “Lord, You are. My problems will end, but You, Lord, will be forever.”

 

When you have a need or are in difficulty, do not merely praise the Lord for His richness and sufficiency. You should also praise Him that He is the One who is. Do not simply thank Him that He is able and mighty, but declare boldly, “Lord, You are.” The Lord is longing for some to proclaim, “Lord, You are!” We need to be those who praise the Lord in this way.

 

We should not simply thank the Lord for His richness, sufficiency, and ability. Ifwe have received the revelation of the Lord as the I Am, we shall pray in a new way. When trouble comes, we shall go to the Lord and say, “Lord, here is a problem, but You are. You are the I Am, and I believe in You.” (Life-study of Exodus, msg. 14)
