Moses Meets the Great I AM

Moses lived to be 120 years old. His life could be divided into three periods of forty years each. The first 40 years were spent in the palace as royalty, the second in Midian as a lowly shepherd, and the third in the wilderness as God’s mediator leading the children of Israel. The Bible says that Moses was strong in word and in deed (Acts7:22). He was aware that somehow God wanted to use him. Verse 25 says: “and he supposed that his brothers understood that God through his hand was giving salvation to them, but they did not understand”. After being rejected by his brothers he fled to Midian where he shepherded sheep for the next 40 years. He went from being “somebody” to being a “nobody”. It was at that juncture of being 80 that God spoke to him in a burning bush to call him to deliver the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage. The burning bush was a picture of Moses, a thorn bush on whom the fire of God would burn without being consumed. God Himself was the fuel. The thorn bush represented fallen man (Gen. 3) cursed because of the fall and yet the fire of God’s holiness would burn on and in him. This was not by Moses’s strength. Here Moses told God that he was not eloquent and slow of speech and tongue. He had lost his self-confidence. This is exactly what God was waiting for, to keep him from being puffed up and proud. It was here also that God told him His name: “I Am that I Am”. This calling was to tell Moses that he needed to trust and rely on the great “ I AM “for his strength and supply in leading the Children of Israel out of Egypt and into the Good Land.
