God Will Be With You

God Will Be With You

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

12 And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.”

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?”

14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.'” Exodus 3:11-14

It’s no wonder Moses had misgivings of what he was to do for God. He was probably still concerned about how he would be received when he returned. After all, he did murder an Egyptian.

But God had his hand on Moses and believe in Him. That is not an insignificant point.

Of course each of us can say the same thing. God’s revelation to Moses was specific enough for him to know what needed to be done. Details were left out purposely. It was just enough information for Moses to recognize that he might be in over his head. And he was right except for one point: God would be with him.

That is a point I wish we all drilled into our minds and hearts. In those moments of insecurity and helplessness, God is certainly with us. He will sustain us.
