Exodus 3:13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”
Moses still hasn’t bought into this faith thing fully yet. This is evident when he says “the God of your fathers” not “the God of our fathers”. He isn’t identifying himself as an Israelites yet. He’s still holding back from committing his all to God and His purposes. What does it look like when you hold back, when you’re not all in? Are there words or phrases you use to hide behind?
Could it be that Moses is really asking God what his name is? Is the question on Moses’ heart really, who are you? Maybe 40 years tending sheep in the desert has left Moses with that question. Who are you God? Where are you God? Do I matter to you God?
What’s the question on your heart today? In the midst of whatever you are facing, the years of holding on, the waiting, the dry desert experience, is there a question that has risen up inside of you? Is that question shaping your life right now, your view of God? God knows the question on your heart, so go ahead and ask Him?
