During this account, Moses was on the backside of the desert, essentially fleeing from his past life, when he saw the burning bush. He was amazed that it was not burning up, and this is where God began speaking to him out of the bush, instructing him to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses asked God what he should say when asked who sent him, and God told Moses to say, "I AM hath sent me unto you." We can look throughout the lives of the Israelites to see that God was their I AM, and He showed them that I AM your protector when parting the Red Sea, I AM your provider when water came from a rock and manna fell from heaven, and I AM your everything you needed. We often forget that the same I AM back then is the same I AM who walks and talks with us today. God is the Great I AM for everything we may need. He is our comforter, provider, savior, and guide. Don't worry about what you need, but trust in the Great I AM because He tells us through His Word that I AM your every need.
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Exodus 3:13-14 (KJV)
