Exodus 3:11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”
Who am I that I should go? I am just a shepherd and a failure. I am just a murderer. I am just a … I’m sure that Moses had a lot of reasons that disqualified him in his own mind. I’m too old, too distant, too detached from those people and that place. I’ve a family to look after and sheep, don’t forget the sheep. They need me.
What disqualifies you when God calls your name? What keeps you from going when God says to go? Does the enemy whisper in your ear, “Who are you to go do something for God? Who do you think you are?” Does your past come up and stare you in the face, daring you to take a step, as you remember all the wrongs you have ever done?
When the lies says, “Who do you think you are?” Say right back to them, “I am a child of the living God!” When your mind says you can’t, you won’t, you shouldn’t, remind yourself that God called you by name. When the message is that you are too old, too young, too inexperienced, or washed up. Remind the enemy that when you are weak, God is strong!
As you stare in the face of the question, “Who am I that I should go?” What comes up for you? What is your answer to God today?
