Exodus 3:6,13,14 (KJV); Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God…And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you
What is God’s name? Who does He call Himself?
In our theme scripture, Jehovah God introduces Himself to Moses as “the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.”
He deliberately identifies Himself with these patriarchs.
God allows men to own Him by name because He is a God of intimacy and relationship.
He expected no less from Moses. God wanted Moses to stand before the children of Israel and Phaorah and declare that indeed He is the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob and the GOD OF MOSES.
In Exodus 3:14, He says, “I AM that I AM .” I AM is incomplete without you in it. I am the God of Peter, I am the God of Paul, I am the God of Mary and I am the God of John.
You must own Him! When you own Him, it is a testimony that you are not alone!
When you own Him, it is proof that you know whose you are!
When you own Him you fight like one who knows he is one with God!
If they ever ask you, what is the name of your God? Boldly respond with no apology, that He is the God of Ruth, of Ritah or of Jeremiah. That is God and that is His name!

GOLDEN NUGGET: God allows men to own Him by name because He is a God of intimacy and relationship.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. You are my God! What a comfort! What a blessed assurance! I know who holds my world and whose I am. When people see my life, they see my God because I have owned You like You have owned me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
