Who Am I That I Should Go?

H – Highlight

Exodus 3:10-12 – 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.”

E – Explain

Moses feels unable to be the person God will use to lead the Israelites up out of Egypt. God, for his part, lets Moses know that God will go with him and accomplish the task.

A – Apply

Like Moses, it is easy to feel unworthy for the task that God has for us. After all, we are sinners. We are weak. The world is big and scary. The problems we face are too large.

But God is with us. His Spirit indwells us. We have no right to claim that we lack what we need to serve the Lord in accord with his word. It might be hard. But God will not fail his people.

R – Respond

Lord, I pray that you will help me to recall the truth of your presence with me. I am unworthy if left to myself. I am unable. But you are worthy. You are strong. You can use me to accomplish your plan. Help me rest in you.
