Have you ever asked this question: Who am I? Perhaps you were assigned a task beyond your ability or asked to do something out of your comfort zone. Well, Moses asked God the same question. God had seen the misery of the Israelites in Egypt and decided to deliver them. He chose Moses as the best candidate for the job and extended the invitation to him to be involved in liberating them.

Moses had a unique meeting with God where he asked all the questions and God gave all the answers. He portrayed his unwillingness, self-perceived inadequacies, and fear of rejection by the Israelites and Pharaoh, said he was not eloquent and felt incompetent. Although Moses knew God, he was afraid that the Israelites may have forgotten God and he said that to God. God’s response was that Moses should tell the Israelites, “I AM has sent me to you.” More details of God’s answers to Moses' questions can be found in Exodus 3:13-15.

Have you ever been afraid of rejection? Has God ever asked you to trust him or share your faith with someone and you were afraid? Moses didn’t have to provide his own answers. They were available for when he would need them. God always gives us the answers at the right time.

In the end Moses became a hero for the Israelites because of his obedience to God, not because of his natural abilities or qualifications. He was now depending on God’s faithfulness who said he was the “I AM WHO I AM”. He is the same God we can depend upon when he assigns us tasks that appear difficult for us.

Dear Lord, help me to trust you, surrender and walk in obedience when carrying out the tasks you assign me and not to fear but to know that you, THE Great I AM, is in total control of every situation. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today’s Challenge: Meditate on: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). God always has more in store. He has all the answers. He is unchangeable. We can count on Him who lives within us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
