Who am I? Empowered by God (Exodus 3:11)

"But Moses said to God, 'Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?'" - Exodus 3:11

Reading this verse makes me realize just how prideful I am. I think if the Lord appeared to me and asked me to do something significant like this I would likely respond with an "Alright, I can handle it." Not a "Who am I?"

I'm picturing God asking me to lead the Broncos to the Super-bowl as his anointed quarterback. Or asking me to lead the march of believers further into places unreached. But this task was more monumental than any of the things I could ever picture God asking me to do or lead. And Moses rose to the challenge (albeit with a good amount of resistance and eventually passing part of it off to Aaron).

But should the Lord ever ask me to do something ridiculous, I am HUGELY comforted by this:

"Then the LORD said to him, 'Who has made man's mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.'" 4:11-12

Meaning, if the Lord should ever ask me to lead a team to the Super-bowl, he could be my passing arm, and my agility, and my skills in general. After all, who made man? Who made football?

Okay, the cheesy football idea aside, our God is empowering. Seriously empowering. And can use even the bumblers to set an entire nation free from slavery and oppression. He can use you to do big things if He calls you to them, and small things to make big impacts on His Kingdom.
