The Bible tells us that God will meet all our needs. He feeds the birds of the air and clothes the grass with the splendour of lilies. How much more, then, will He care for us, who are made in His image? Our only concern is to obey the heavenly Father and leave the consequences to Him. Charles Stanley
Who Am I?
But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”
When the Lord told Moses to bring His people out of Egypt, Moses considered the task set before him and thought he was inadequate for the job. Knowing that he would be responsible for over a million Israelites, questions such as “Do we have the resources?” and “How will we feed them?” would have been foremost in his mind. Furthermore, the thought of going into the palace to negotiate with Pharaoh was a major concern.
Moses knew that the Lord had called him but questioned the Lord’s choice. Often, our unbelieving minds would rather have the Lord choose somebody else for the task but the Word says that He chooses the weak things of the world to put to shame the things that are mighty. (1 Corinthians 1:27)
When God called Gideon to defeat the Midianites, he replied in a similar manner, saying “How can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” Judges 6:15
Another example is found when the Lord called David; he was not even considered significant enough to be called in from tending the sheep, to stand in line before the prophet, Samuel. The Lord, however, had His plans and chose David above his brothers, to lead His people.
When the Lord calls us to doing something for Him, we need to look to the Lord and not ourselves. We will not be able to accomplish anything in our own strength but all things are possible through Him.
Sometimes I feel very weak and tired and the task seems too burdensome for me but at times like that, teach me to look to You, my source of help and strength. Amen.
