First we must be careful to borrow the words but transform the meaning. We must also change the emphasis on words. When Ali spoke these words he emphasized “I”. When you say them try emphasizing “I am”. The meaning will become clearer. We know as Christians that our world does not center on us; but rather on the One greater than us. God. Throughout the Bible, God has many names and many attributes. He is called Wonderful, Counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). He is known as a healer, provider, and a defender. Other scriptures refer to him as the Messiah, the Christ, the Redeemer, and Heavenly Father. But my favorite definition is found in Exodus 3:14. There we find a conversation between Moses and God in which Moses doubts his ability to stand up to Pharaoh and lead his people out of Egypt. Moses asks of God, “When I come to the children of Israel and say to them that the God of our fathers hath sent me… and they shall say to me, what is his name? What shall I tell them?”
God’s reply to Moses is, “I Am that I Am. Thou shalt say to the children of Israel that I am hath sent me”. In those two words is a promise to every believer. With them God says, I am your provider. I am your protector. I am your shield. I am your salvation. I am all you need. When we consider all that he is, it becomes clear.
I Am, the greatest.
