Day 9: I am...Not

I am not ____________________.

How would you fill in the blank?

Oh how easy it is to tell you who I am not,

as the list would go on and on...

But then I look up

And Jesus says



You are not who you believe yourself to be because



The One Who Was from the very beginning (John 4:26; 1:1)

I AM the Bread of Life~

the One Who fully satisfies all our hungers and thirsts (John 6:35; Philippians 4:19)

I AM the Light of the world~

the One Who illuminates the darkest of dark with His Truth (John 9:5)

I AM the Door of the sheep~

the One Who welcomes whomever walks through...

to save, to give abundant life (John 10:7; 10)

I AM the Good Shepherd~

the One Who knows our name and Who gave up His life for (John 10:11; 4-15)

I AM the Son of God~

The One Who makes us His Child (John 10:36; 1:12-13)

I AM the resurrection and the life~

the One Who raises us from our fallen state by giving us

His life (John 11:25; 1 John 5:11-12)

I AM the way, and the truth and the life~

the One Who we follow because He knows the way we should take,

that is paved with Truth

that breathes life into our breathless body (John 14:6)

I AM the true vine~

The One Who we abide in so that we bear His fruit (John 15:1; 15:4)

I AM the Alpha and the Omega~

the One

Who WAS,

Who IS


Who IS TO COME (Revelations 1:8)

When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man And He placed His right hand on me, saying,

"Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, (Revelations 1:17)


How can we ever say that


I am not?

If He is what I am not

then I am all that He has come to bring.

So I ask you again

How would you now fill in...

I am not ____________________.

Cross out



He is all that you are not.

So today

Let’s fast from the weight of

"I am not"


Holding on to the hand of


Who changes every one of your

I am not


I am _____________________
