“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak… those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar… run… walk and not be faint.”Isaiah 40:29, 31
God’s man Moses trembled on the brink—of what? That was the problem. He had no way of guessing what could possibly be ahead for him. God was sending him back to Egypt to lead a nation of slaves out of bondage. “Who am I for such a job?” he gasped. He was unknown by the slaves, and he was a wanted man in the court that held the slaves in their misery. The assignment seemed to defy logic.
God answered Moses, “I will be with you.” Moses’ inadequacy was no problem for God.
Moses then asked, “And who are you?”
God replied, “I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14). Though the exact meaning of this name is hidden in mystery, we know it refers to God’s eternal, dependable nature. Promises He gave Moses were based on His never-changing character.
We too have the reality of God’s presence. He made His presence perfectly known to us in Jesus, His Son. We know it still today in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who gives us strength to accomplish the work He has for us to do. Count on the Lord who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Accept even the difficult assignments of life with trust and joy because your Savior will give you the strength to do so.
