"I will be what I will be." (Exodus 3:14)
Rashi says: "'I will be' with them in this trouble 'what I will be' with them in their bondage (by) other kingdoms. (Moses) said to Him, 'Master of the Universe, Why shall I mention to them another trouble? Sufficient for them is this trouble!' (He) [God] said to him, 'You have spoken well. Thus shall you say,' etc. (Berakot 9b)."
To paraphrase, God is saying He will be with us in that trouble as he will be with us in future troublesone thing at a time.
