Today’s Affirmation: Certainly God is with me.
Order, punctuation and tone reflect and direct so much meaning. Do we state this affirmation with an exclamation point or a question mark? Do we state this with a hint of doubt in our hearts and minds or with complete confidence? Do we ever really have 100% certainty?
This affirmation was drawn from Exodus 3:12. God is telling Moses to go to Pharaoh to ask him set His people free. God said…”Certainly I will be with you…”
God is saying this in response to Moses’ question in 3:11 “Who am I that I should go…”
It does seem easier to say “certainly you don’t mean me God” instead of “God certainly you are with me”. Why do I find it easier at times to be certain He is NOT calling me instead of certain He IS?
Like Moses, we feel so ill equipped at times or just not quite ready. Do we say who am I or do we say here I am.
Exodus 3:14 God says “I AM WHO I AM”. Tell them I AM has sent you.
Yes He has. He has sent us. Instead of us responding “Who am I?” I pray we say Here I am! I am who I am.
- Have you ever felt called to something but, like Moses, felt like “who am I” to do this?
- Like God, can we find confidence in the statement “I am who I am”?
- Are you sure that who you are is good enough and can be used by God to complete His mission?
- Are you certain God is with you? What more do you need for certainty?
Certainly God is with us when He has called us to a task. I am who I am and it is good enough because God is with me. Certainly.
