How do you answer the question, asked of us daily; ‘How are you?’.
If you are like most everyone, usually the answer is ‘ I am” fine.
We answer this beginning with the Name of God! ‘I AM’. What a revelation! The answer is accurate as well. We know that God is in us, that we were made in His image.
Genesis 1:26, 27: 26 Then God said “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule ove the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.
Jesus lives in us. Would you say that Jesus is sick or broke. No, we wouldn’t. When answering the question of how you are today consider that we are also describing how Jesus us in us today. We can substitute the ‘ I AM’ for our answer! The Word in us everyday is our strength ~ the Truth of the Word.
Other scriptural proof that God resides in us:
Exodus 3: 14: God said to Moses, ” I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, ” Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘ I AM has sent me to you.'”
Luke 17:21: nor will they say ‘ Look, here it is !’ or, ‘ There it is!’ For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
John 14: 16,17: I will askt the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot recieve, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.
Isaiah 61:1-3: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed me To bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And freedom to prisoners; to proclaim the favorable year to the Lord And the day of vengance of our God; to comfort all who mourn in Zion, Giving them beauty instead of ashes, The oil of gladness instead of mourning, The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
Psalm 119:11: Your Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against You.
So, when someone asks me How I AM tomorrow, I will remember who I AM in Christ. I am blessed, healed and favored of God! I will nolonger take this question lightly, because I will be answering it with His name!
