Not Who, But Whose You Are

‘Who am I that I should go…?’ Exodus 3:11 NIV

When God told Moses He was going to use him to deliver the Israelites from slavery, the conversation went like this: ‘“So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring My people the Israelites out of Egypt.” 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.”’ (Exodus 3:10–12 NIV) Moses summarised his fears and insecurities in one question, ‘Who am I?’ But that’s the wrong question. It’s not about who you are, but Whose you are! That day God revealed His name to Moses as ‘I AM’. His name is the solution to every problem and the answer to every question. His name calms every fear, seals every prayer, and wins every battle. At His name, angels bow and demons quake. At His name, our sin is vindicated and our authority is validated. Who you are is absolutely irrelevant. God doesn’t use us because of us, but in spite of us. It’s not like Heaven is going to go bankrupt if you don’t tithe. And if you take your talents elsewhere, it’s not like the Kingdom of God is going to go under. But for reasons that will only be revealed on the far side of the space-time continuum, God has chosen to accomplish His purposes through ordinary people like us. Are you afraid of stepping out in faith in case you fail? Does the situation seem impossible for you? It’s not for God. Trust Him, stand on His promise: ‘I will be with you’, and move ahead!
