I am Eve, deceived by Satan’s lies.
I am Joseph’s brothers, motivated by jealousy.
I am Moses, offering excuses to God for why I don’t do His will.
I am David, trying to cover up my sins.
I am Job, speaking boldly when I should not.
I am the tribe of Judah, bowing down before false gods.
I am Jonah, running away from my responsibilities.
I am Paul, persecuting Christ with my sin.
Yet, despite what I am…
There is the love and grace of the Great I AM.
And because of Him…
I have hope.
And can become.
I can become Eve, vindicated by the righteous seed.
I can become Joseph’s brothers, touched by the hand of forgiveness.
I can become Moses, bathed in God’s glory.
I can become David, rediscovering the joy of my salvation.
I can become Job, blessed with a superfluity of God’s blessings .
I can become the tribe of Judah, fully restored.
I can become Jonah, successful after learning the value of cooperation.
I can become Paul, finding the sufficiency of God’s grace.
There is only one thing standing in the way of what I am and what I can become.
