"I AM NOT but I know I AM!"
One expect from it that really hit home and has inspired me to make a wall hanging of this at some point and time! Taken from "I AM NOT BUT I KNOW I AM" by Louie Giglo
"God was telling Moses,
I AM the center of everything.
I AM running the show.
I AM the same every day, FOREVER.
I AM the Owner of everything.
I AM the Lord.
I AM the Creator and Sustainer of life.
I AM the Title Holder of the universe.
I AM the Savior.
I AM your Source.
I AM more than enough.
I AM inexhaustible and immeasurable.
I AM God......................."
to paraphrase what Louie say's next if God's name is I AM then our name must be I AM NOT!
"I am not the center of everything.
I am not in control.
I am not the Source.
I am not the solution.
I am not all-powerful.
I am not calling the shots.
I am not the Owner of anything.
I am not the Lord..............
I am not running anything.
I am not the head of anything.
I am not in charge of anything.
I am not the Maker.
I am not the Savior.
I am not holding it all together.
I am not God."
Giglio, Louie. "I AM NOT BUT I KNOW I AM Welcome to the Story of God." pgs. 33-35. Colorado Springs. MULTNOMAH BOOKS, 2005, 2012. Print
Louie shares another story in the book about how one year he was at GMA week and anyone who is anybody has a lanyard around their neck. And the more decorative the lanyard the more important they are. He shared how he wanted to take a black sharpie and cross out everyone's name and put "I AM NOT" on their name tag. You think that is strange and in the secular world it is strange...you want them to know WHO YOU ARE!!!!! But in the world with Christ we are NOT because he is I AM! and I am thankful that he is the I AM And I AM NOT!
DISCLAIMER: I did not get paid or bribed to write this about Louie's new book! He doesn't even know I wrote
