Today you should read: Isaiah 47
“I am, and there is none besides me.” Isaiah 47:8 and 10
We live in a world where people feel they are untouchable. Even we, sometimes, when things are going our way, feel like we can’t be stopped. One of the many messages the world tries to tell us is that we need to be self-reliant, a self-motivated person. You need to be able to do it on your own or use people to get where you want and what you want. When we buy into this line of reason the end result is a belief in the statement above. We believe we are it, we are all that we need. We may say differently but our lives show it to be true.
Babylon was a place built on this premise. Babylon “drank its own kool-aid” (for slang reference go to ). They truly believed they would last forever and that no other nation would ever be able to take them down. Well, as we see in today’s reading and in history, God had other plans.
When Moses met God and asked him what he should call him God replied, “I am who I am” (Exodus 3:14). Apparently Babylon missed that message. Sadly, we tend to miss it, too. As you live your life and walk with God please remember this:
There is only one “I am” and that is God!
