Not because of what I’ve done, But because of who You are.


1 Chronicles 17:16-22 Then King David went in and sat before the Lord and said, “Who am I, Lord God, and what is my house, that you have brought me thus far? And this was a small thing in your eyes, O God. You have also spoken of your servant’s house for a great while to come, and have shown me future generations, Lord God! And what more can David say to you for honoring your servant? For you know your servant.19 For your servant’s sake, O Lord, and according to your own heart, you have done all this greatness, in making known all these great things. There is none like you, O Lord, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.  And who is like your people Israel, the one nation on earth whom God went to redeem to be his people, making for yourself a name for great and awesome things, in driving out nations before your people whom you redeemed from Egypt? And you made your people Israel to be your people forever, and you, O Lord, became their God. 

Who am I?  The question David asked, has been asked many times by many others, including “Casting Crowns.”  Here is a very unique version of their song, “Who am I?” Here are the lyrics to the first verse:

Who am I? 
That the Lord of all the earth,  Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I? 
That the bright and morning star,  Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Not because of who I am,   But because of what You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done,   But because of who You are.
