The Bible

"Jesus answered, 'I tell you the truth before Abraham was even born, I AM'" JOHN8:58 NLT


There is no power, might, dominion, or authority mightier than I AM! There is no sickness, disease, stronghold of sin, financial strain, relational difficulty, or political force, more powerful than the God we serve! When we SPEAK THE NAME, I AM, all of heaven stands to attention, and every hindering force will fall flat!

I AM is the bedrock for the blessing of God! Jesus does not just “tickle our ears” with His name and His Word to make us feel good. His name inherently carries the power of His Self-Existence, Eternality, and Immutability. He has the power and the capacity to transform lives and change situations. When I lose my way, I remember Jesus said, “I AM the Way.” When confusion seems to overtake my mind, I remember Jesus said, “I AM the Truth.” When I need a Savior, I remember Jesus said, “I AM the Life.” When I need guidance, Jesus said, “I AM The Good Shepherd.” When I am spiritually hungry, Jesus said, “I AM The Bread of Life.” When I am experiencing grief and loss, I remember Jesus said, “IAM The Resurrection and The Life.” Whatever I need, He is!

I AM has the power to shake the powers of hell and set us free. He saves us from the “gutter-most” to the uttermost! I AM can release power to break the chains of darkness, depression, fear, and anxiety. IAM brings peace in chaos, hope in despair, comfort in grief, and joy in sadness. I AM is All-powerful, Self-Sufficient, Eternal, and Immutable. If IAM ever was Love, He will always be Love. If He was Healer, He will always be Healer. If He was ever Provider, Protector, Deliverer, Defender, He will continue to be throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity! It is that very One who has His hand on my life!

I AM is the validity of my salvation, the security of my life, and the source of all my strength! That's why every day, all day, I speak I AM! I AM is my Savior, my Healer, my Provider, and my Protector. When all hell attacks me or my family, when my kids are sick or are far away from God, I speak the name of I AM, and power is released! What power needs to be released in your life today? SPEAK HIS NAME!
