When Moses encounters God in the burning bush he has some questions for God. When we meet God in our own particular circumstance and we sense that God has a task or mission for us, we too have our own questions. And maybe we ask the same two questions that Moses asked.
Moses first asks who is he that God should send him to Pharaoh. Often, when we feel that God is leading us somewhere, ask the same basic question ‘ “Me? Are you sure?” We seek two things with this question – reassurance that God is indeed choosing us because we have the gifts and talents to accomplish this mission and, secondly, that He will be with us.
His second question seeks to define who God is. Jesus asked the disciples the same question – “Who do you say I am?” It is important to know who we serve and to whom we belong. Much like us when we go forth to share the good news or to serve, Moses wants to be able to tell them who sent him. We do not go on our own. We go in and through God. He is a steadfast and true God. We do not go alone.
