He is “I am” and I can never be that.
Do you ever find yourself in the place of God. Creating your own plans without Him. Living your life with no prayer or praise of God. No scripture reading. No time of fasting. Just a bunch of yourself.
How’s that turning out for you? I know times I realize I am in those spots, I am pretty miserable or working towards it.
What about trying to love with other people when you take Gods seat? If God is love, without Him there can be no love. Without Love there can be no love. You cannot expect to have love of others when you are not in relation with God. There is only self in those times.
He is, so we don’t have to be.
