Who am I

IMG_0112Exodus 3:11

And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?

Have you ever wondered why God uses certain people to complete His will on this earth?  Moses gave up the palace life he was living in Egypt and was dwelling  in the land of Midian as a shepherd.  From his youth he had been blessed, but one wrong decision made him run from everything dear to him and caused him to start his life over again.  The Bible is full of examples that God has given us to explore.  We see the life of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph given to us in the book of Genesis.  We also see the lives of Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and David given to us a great man of faith.  But why were they chosen by God to be used by God?

I believe Christ has an answer for us in Matthew 26:42  “He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”   All the examples given above was willing to say to God “Thy will be done”.  Sometimes the events in our life done not go according to our plans.  These examples had to chose to let “Thy will be done” in their life.  Paul had to make the same choose in Acts 9:5 “And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutes: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.”  Was Paul going to continue his task of breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord and having them arrested or was he going to accept the Lord as the Messiah?  Yes the decision seems to be easy, and yet as I look around and see how many people who profess to know Christ live a life that denies the truth given us in the scriptures I begin to realize that most are not willing to say “Thy will be done” in their life.
