Exodus 1-3; Galatians 5

Passages in Exodus tell of oppression and slavery; of Moses–set apart, saved, chosen; of relationship with God, his direction.

Moses who calls out, “Here I am!”

When the Lord saw Moses coming to take a closer look, God called to him from the middle of the bush, “Moses! Moses!”

Here I am!” Moses replied. Exodus 3:4, NLT. (emphasis mine)

And later wonders, “Who am I?”

11 But Moses protested to God, “Who am I to appear before Pharaoh? Who am I to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt?” Exodus 3:11, NLT. (emphasis mine)

This is what God said:

12 God answered, “I will be with you. And this is your sign that I am the one who has sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God at this very mountain.” Exodus 3:12, NLT.

Sometimes if a calling seems clear, uncertainty and insecurity slow a pace and cloud a vision. An enemy can take up residence in thought or stand just close enough behind and say, “You’re not ( … ) enough.”

In 2011, I stood outside of a house and looked out upon a snowy landscape. I said to God, “If you want us here, I trust in you to make it happen.” Today, I worship him from that very place where he delivered me physically, emotionally, spiritually. Throughout the journey, I often wondered who am I? I learned throughout that God was with me, and that he is (…) enough.

These words are the reminder I need.

Thank you, Lord.
