The Great I Will
Moses was not a general—he was a shepherd. He was not a polished orator—he had a stuttering tongue. He was not equipped to lead a nation—he had his hands full leading a flock of sheep. How could he possibly do what God was asking him to do? “Who am I,” Moses asks in Exodus 3:11, “that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?” And here we see Moses’s mistake. He made the error of thinking it was about him—about his talents, abilities, and gifts. But God quickly corrects Moses over and over throughout the rest of the chapter.
- “I am the God of your father” (Exod. 3:6, NAS, emphasis added).
- “I will send you to Pharaoh” (Exod. 3:10, NAS, emphasis added ).
- “Certainly I will be with thee” (Exod. 3:12, emphasis added).
- “I will bring you up” (Exod. 3:17, emphasis added).
- “I will stretch out my hand” (Exod. 3:20, emphasis added).
- “I will give this people favour” (Exod. 3:21, emphasis added).
- “I am that I am” (Exod. 3:14, emphasis added).
By the end of the conversation Moses had learned a very valuable lesson. The great I am is the Great “I will.” God is the fulfiller of His word.
