Who Am I?
Today’s devotion is based on Exodus 3:11.12: “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.”’
When tasked with responsibility, we may feel the urge to deflect attention and ask, “Who am I?” When Moses was tasked with going to Pharaoh and leading God’s people, his first response was, “Who, me?” “Who am I?”
It’s good to look honestly at ourselves and not think too highly of ourselves, especially before God. But don’t dwell on the question, “Who am I?” and miss who your God is and what he has done for you. Your salvation and eternal life don’t rest on your personality or abilities. Rely on Jesus Christ and who he is. He is your Savior who laid down his life for you! “Who, me?” Yeah, you! And he is with you to guide, comfort, and strengthen because that’s who he is. He calls you to live and rely on who he is and what he has done and is doing for you.
Please pray with me: Lord, give me true humility to shift the attention from me and my efforts and trust only and always in you. Amen.
