Devotion of the Day


“Who am I?” I AM THAT I AM.
Exodus 3:11, 14

On “the backside of the desert” Moses came to “the mountain of God.” When God called him to his mighty task Moses was first taken up with his own insufficiency – “Who am I?” But God made it clear that what mattered was not what Moses was but who God is: “I Am That I Am.”

Jeremiah had the same fear as Moses: “I am but a child.” God corrected him: “Say not, I am a child…I am with thee to deliver thee.” “Who is sufficient for these things?” asked Paul, and then he moved on to declare, “Our sufficiency is of God.”

Moses started with “Who am I?” but soon asked God, “Who are you?” It is well for a man to know his own inadequacy, but woe unto him if he stop there. Let him move on to meet God and find Him sufficient.

It is not a matter of who I am but of who He is.
