“I Am.” This is an expression of God’s nature and I oft say to people that God is not like water that you pour into a bottle: get a little bit of God and a then little bit more and then a little bit more. God is a person and wherever God is He is absolutely there. You are going to have as much of God as you can get when He is there. He is a person as I am a person. Now wherever God is He is absolutely there. You don’t get a little of Him. The way some people talk about “receiving God,” I get the picture that He is climbing into them. Christ is formed in your heart by faith; and when I am filled with the Holy Spirit, it is not so much me getting more of God as it is the God that is already in me getting more of me. And the tongue, that most unruly member, is the last one to yield, when there is a fuller dimension of His expression through me and a greater possession of me by the Spirit that is come. That is what is involved in the fullness of the Spirit, but God is complete in Himself; and when He comes, He is there.
That means wherever He is He is the same God who said, “I am the LORD that healeth thee.” In your darkness of sickness you can’t change the darkness, but you can trust in the name of the Lord and He will change the darkness; He is the light. You hang your body literally on what He has said, “I am the LORD that healeth you.”
You might say, “But I am still sick.” Sure you are. It is just as real as you think it is, but keep hanging on in faith. He said, “I am the LORD that healeth thee.” In the Bible, some were healed instantly; some were healed as they went, but God provided for His people in this promise.
