I Am Means You Can (Exodus 4:1-17)

In Exodus 3 we have seen Moses express two concerns about his calling to go and deliver the people of Israel from Egyptian slavery. The first concern was a humble recognition that he is a nobody. “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” (3:11). God’s response was very simple. “But I will be with you” (3:12). Moses’ second concern was that he does not know what name to tell the people of Israel when he comes to them (3:13). God’s answer was again very simple. “I AM WHO I AM” (3:14). The eternal nature of God means that he is always with us, always sees what is happening to us, and is always able to save his people. God is with you and no one can overthrow God’s plans. But Moses has a few more concerns that he desires to ask of God before he goes on this mission.
