Not because of who I am but because of who you are, out of your very heart, and you have let me in on this.
Moses said, “Who am I?” Who was he that he was the one chosen of all the Hebrew people to lead the children out of Israel? He stuttered and he was afraid. He ran and he had accidentally committed murder. Not necessarily a good resume for a great statesman or a leader. But God had chosen him for his heart.
David said, “Who am I?” Who was he that he was the one chosen to be king of Israel? He was just a shepherd; he was a small man, the youngest of tall brave brothers. But God looked at his heart.
I say, “Who am I?” Who am I to lead a small group? Who am I to write devotions? Who am I to think that I might help others find ways to support themselves?
I am just me. I am a woman with faults, failures and needing forgiveness. I am a woman who loves God and just wants to help. Please God, look at my heart. Judge me not by what I have done but whom I am when I stand in your grace and your mercy. See my desires and turn my heart completely over to your desires and plans.
2 Samuel 7: 18-21 King David went in, took his place before GOD, and prayed: “Who am I, my Master GOD, and what is my family, that you have brought me to this place in life? But that’s nothing compared to what’s coming, for you’ve also spoken of my family far into the future, given me a glimpse into tomorrow, my Master GOD! What can I possibly say in the face of all this? You know me, Master GOD, just as I am. You’ve done all this not because of who I am but because of who you are—out of your very heart! —But you’ve let me in on it.
