In Exodus, Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” He doubted his calling because he doubted his worth and his redemption.
Have you ever asked that question? Have you ever felt a calling on your life and wondered, “Who am I to fulfill this?”
He called me and I asked Him, “Who am I, Lord?”
To go out in Your name.
To fulfill Your purpose.
To command the darkness to flee.
To heal the sick.
To make disciples of all nations.
I asked, “Who am I?”
And He replied, “You are Mine.”
Jesus earned His right-standing with God. He deserved the abundant blessings. But He transferred both of those things to us so that we could be chosen, appointed, and equipped to fulfill His purpose.
“God saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of His own purpose and grace.” 2 Timothy 1:9
When we tell God we’re not sure we’re the right one for the job, we aren’t seeing ourselves the way that He sees us. We are mistaking and misplacing our identity.
Scripture tells us exactly who we are:
- We are chosen by God, holy and dearly loved. (Colossians 3:12)
- We are sanctified. (Hebrews 2:11)
- We are anointed. (1 John 2:27)
- We are the salt of the earth. (Matthew 5:13)
- We are the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14)
- We are HIS. (Galatians 2:20)
God has prepared the way for us. He has redeemed and qualified us so that we can respond to His calling with confidence, knowing who we are and whose we are.

Sometimes it’s hard to see what God’s plan is for me. I feel stuck a lot. It’s nice to read some of these reminders. Thanks for sharing!
We all struggle sometimes with questioning whether we’re really cut out for what God is calling/has called us to do. I think that can be a good thing. It reminds us that the glory really belongs to Him, not to us. However, doubting our abilities can also keep us from doing the thing God has called us to for fear of failing. Thanks for the reminders of who God says we are in the Scriptures. It’s a great way to knock out the fear!
Love this 🙂 to remember who we are in Christ and walk in that, we will automatically fulfilling his purpose for our lives. Thanks for sharing!
We are His ❤ Such a beautiful truth to rest in.
Yes! Though we (in and of ourselves) are not “enough”, God is enough and He lives in us through His Spirit. Therefore, we are able to accomplish so much through His power.
