Who am I, and who is God?


[10] Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” [11] But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” [12] He said, “But I will be with you, and this shall be the sign for you, that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”

[14] God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And he said, “Say this to the people of Israel: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

(Exodus 3:10-12, 14, ESV)

A few times I asked the Lord a similar question, “Who am I …?”  Each time I asked this question, I believed the “Egyptians” were becoming stronger,  and I was smaller.

God answered a different question.  He said I should have asked Him, “Who are you?”  He still answers, “I am …” God doesn’t need to complete the sentence because “I AM” is sufficient to answer any question. However, God, in His kindness, inserts character qualities of Himself.

In the past, some of my questions were,“Who am I that …”

- I can be in Your family?

- I can climb this steep hill?

- I can move this huge rock?

- I can cross this raging river?

Today, I asked, “Who am I … that the words You give me will penetrate the deep darkness that is all around me and the people that I love?”

he reveals deep and hidden things;

        he knows what is in the darkness,

        and the light dwells with him.

(Daniel 2:22, ESV)

Today, if you have a “Who Am I“ question for the Lord, He has an answer. Wait for it. You will be amazed and comforted.
