What’s In Your Hand?

Moses felt very inadequate and felt like he didn’t have anything to offer to God or to others.  He was only a shepherd.  God asked him one day, “What’s in your hand?”  Moses looked at his hand and said, “A staff.”  The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses did so, and it became a snake. God told him to pick it up by the tail and it turned back into a staff. Over the next 40 years of Moses’ life, God used that simple wooden stick to deliver the Israelites from Pharaoh, to open the Red Sea, to win a battle with the Amalekites, to bring water from a rock.                                                                            So, what’s in your hand?  Think about  what He has given you. God equips people in various ways. Offer to God in faith what He has given you, no matter how simple, and God will use it — sometimes supernaturally — to do His work. You’ll have a renewed sense of meaning once you realize how God is using the skills, resources, interests, and gifts  He has given you.  Again, what’s in your hand?
