Day 3: A Pound of Not


I Am Not __________.

How would you fill in the blank?

Oh how easy it is to tell yourself who

I AM Not

as the list would go on and on...

But then when

I look up & You look up

and

Jesus

tells you & I

that

I AM

therefore

You are not who you believe yourself to be

because

I AM...

I AM HE~

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 (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

and

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)

Then

How can we ever say that

I AM Not?

If Jesus is who I am not

then I am & you are

all that He is.

So I ask you again

How would you now fill in the blank~

I Am Not __________.

Cross out

"Not"

because

it adds another unnecessary pound

that weighs you down.

So

Let’s fast from the weight of

I Am Not

By

Taking the hand of

I AM~

Who changes every one of your

I Am Nots

to

I Am __________

Because

Jesus said

I AM!
