The following is taken from Our Daily Bread, compiled by the Radio Bible Class.
"Who Am I? ... Moses also felt inadequate when God recruited him for the task of telling Pharaoh to release the Israelites. Moses asked, 'Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh?' (Exodus 3:11). Although Moses may have questioned his effectiveness because he was 'slow of speech' (Ex. 4:10), God said, 'I will certainly be with you' (Ex. 3:12). Knowing he would have to share God's rescue plan and tell the Israelites who sent him, Moses asked God, 'What shall I say to them?' God replied, 'I AM has sent me to you' (Ex 3:13-14). His name, 'I AM,' revealed His eternal, self-existent, and all-sufficient character.
Even when we question our ability to do what God has asked us to do, He can be trusted. Our shortcomings are less important than God's sufficiency. When we ask, 'Who am I?' we remember that God said, 'I AM.' "
