Exodus 3:14-15 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’ “This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.”

The phrase “I am who I am” can be translated as “I ever shall be the same that I am today”. God’s very name connotes existence and being. The Hebrew word hayah, “I am”, signifies God as eternal and immutable, who will never be other than the same. The Hebrew word used in verse 15 and translated “The LORD”, is Yehovah, and is thought to be derived from the same Hebrew word hayah.

Hebrews 13:8 states that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Jesus is I AM. And this eternal being, this God who always was and always will be, wants to be remembered. From generation to generation His name is to be remembered.

What does His name mean to you today? For me, it means that no matter what I am facing, He is! He is stronger. He is better. He is right. He is the answer.
