One of the things I have always dreading doing was updating my resume. Yet I have found that in this day and age no one is going to TRUST you enough to hire you unless you can prove to them that you have experience and that you are a good fit for their organization. So when seeking new employment I was faced with trying to put my best foot forward on paper.
Then I began thinking about God and what his resume might look like. When I realize who God is and what his amazing attributes are I discovered that God’s amazing resume enabled me to trust him with my life and the lives of all those I love.
To Moses, God called himself the “I AM” and he told Moses to tell the people that
“I AM has sent me to you.” Exodus 3:14b I AM is his name.
That name includes I AM all present, I AM all knowing, I AM all powerful.
I have always been and I will always be. God is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. The bottom line is I can trust God because his name is the great “I AM.”
“I AM” resides in heaven above, in the earth below, and within our hearts!
“Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.” Isaiah 66:1a
As believers we know that God lives within our hearts.
“Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you?
I Corinthians 6:19a God resides in heaven and also within our hearts. He is always at home and is constantly available to you and me.
Redemption made possible to all mankind through sacrificing his son.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believed in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Satan’s reference is not needed but if asked,
Satan would have to say that, God is awesome enough that he desired to be like Him.
Satan could testify to God’s magnificent power and glory.
Satan would also say that the “I AM” is who the demons fear.
This day I am again reminded that God’s Resume is flawless! His attributes are impeccable! His reputation is perfect! In light of this amazing resume that belongs to my Heavenly Father, how can I not trust God with every detail of my life and the lives of those I love?

I have tried many times to trust you but I keep coming up short. I need your help. Help my unbelief. When I see your amazing resume I know that only a fool would choose not to trust you. I need to stay in the garden with you until I feel I am safe in your care. Help me to find your peace through trusting you.
