The story of God's revelation of himself to us is also a story of which we learn of great people who tried to avoid the demand's that God made of them.  When the Lord told Moses that he was being sent to the king of Egypt to lead Isreal out of the bondage, Moses fearfully tried to avoid this dangerous task. 

Moses said to God, "I am nobody, how can I go to the King and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?" God's answer however was simple, and direct, "I will be with you," he said.
