“Now they may say to me, ‘What is His name? What shall I say to them?’ God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’” (Exodus 3:13-14).
By our efforts to better understand our Heavenly Father, we unwittingly place labels upon Him that reflect our desire to manipulate and control Him. Seek to domesticate God, and you discover that His Spirit works in uncontrollable and unimaginable ways. Try to define Him, and you will find that no dictionary is adequate. Attempt to frame Him in a particular doctrine, and you realize that no number of creeds or confessions are sufficient. Label Him with a denominational banner and see that our man-made organizations are inadequate in their claims on Him. Try to politicize or nationalize God, and you will soon see that His is a Kingdom for all people from all places. HE IS WHO HE IS.
