Who am I? Have you ever thought that? Who am I to lead a bible study, write a book, start a business, give a prophetic word, lead people to freedom? Who am I?
That was Mosses’ question to God, when God commanded him to lead His people out of slavery. Mosses’ thoughts were probably, don’t you remember God, the last time I tried to help my people, I killed a man. I am a murderer. I am not an eloquent speaker. I am ordinary. I am a shepherd. No, God, you have the wrong person. Who am I to lead your people?
I find it interesting that God’s answer to Mosses’ question. “Who am I” was “I will be with you.” He didn’t exactly address Moses’ question. Maybe Mosses asked the wrong question.
We are called to do great exploits for God. He calls us to do things way beyond our pay grade. We are called to lay hands on the sick, preach the gospel, raise the dead, go into all the world and preach the gospel, set the captives free. But we do all of this not because of who we are but because of who He is.
We are sufficient in Him. We are righteous in Him. He equips. He supplies. He heals through us. He leads through us.
Our question shouldn’t be who am I? Our question should be, “I am in you Father, what great exploits are we doing today?”
But if you still want to know who you are, let me remind you. You are sons and daughters. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. You are loved. You are accepted. You are called. You are anointed. You are purposefully planted. Who are you to do great things in the Lord? Better question: Who are you not to?
“But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.””
